Who are you getting it remapped from? Plenty of 2.2 owners have it remapped, but it's advised to use a reputable tuning company, not some garage that has a file map downloaded from somewhere.
I see you have a 2010 2.2. That's good. That means you should have the 325 clutch which is the 2nd revision and best of the OEM clutches (305 was original, 315 was first revision). You can always contact honda UK to find out which clutch was fitted at the factory, but with a 2010 it's pretty much given it'll be the newest one.
That means it should (should) be able to handle a torque increase coming up to 300lbs/ft. It's the torque that gets people, as that is what does the factory clutch in. Most oem clutch-friendly remaps will put the torque up to about 290lbs/ft and about 190bhp. Any more, and you'd need an aftermarket clutch to handle the power (there are options available if this is what you want.
Obviously, clutch wear and tear isn't an exact science. Some have gone a couple weeks and their clutch starts slipping (engine revs suddenyl increase, with no increase in power) indicating the clutch is on it's way out. Some have gone a year or 2 (could be usual lifespan of clutch, who knows!). Some have said they had a bit of clutch slipping, but then it was fine for ages (clutch can readjust itself after slipping and be fine).
Pros are: more power, more torque, more fun!
Cons are: clutch lifespan can be affected.
Hope that helped!
personally, i'd have some money set aside in case the clutch doesn't last. I'm planning on replacing the clutch for the CG 666 and then getting a bigger increase in power, as it's capable of handling it without problems.
