Hi all new to the site as of today and have a question on remaps.

i recently treated myself to a 2.2ctdi 2006 civic ex with 73000miles. love the car to bits and keep seeing posts about remaps improving fuel economy and obviously power.

My main questions are:
1) What sort of gains would i see,
2) How do insurance companies view the remap idea,
3) Are there any bad things about a remap,
4) How much should it cost roughly,
5) Will i have to change any components to do a remap,
6) And which companies are recommended?

I don't want to bleed every ounce of BHP from the engine but would like a decent power increase.


Any help anyone can give would be brilliant.

Cheers. Craig

tuning box or full remap?

thanks for your reply, seen a tuning box for £289 but been reading stories that they just over fuel the engine to create more power, and that a full remap wouldn't have this problem. any ideas on how true this is?

Contact Celtic and use it as an excuse for a couple of days in Cornwall with the Mrs thats my plan, either that of theres a guy on here from Premier Tuning, he has a good reputation too, I keep meaning to book in with him!

Just make sure you have some cash aside to upgrade clutch when it starts to slip, at 73k you might be lucky and have an uprated one in there!

I think all your questions have been answered really. Spend some time searching the forum, all your questions and others that you probably haven't thought of will be answered..

I tuned a Freelander earlier in the week that had already had its fuel pump replaced due to the owner using a tuning box (it was an expensive german one too). We removed the box, and tuned the car the proper way. The owner could tell the difference immediately as the engine felt relaxed and more powerful than with the tuning box at the same time. This can only be achieved by having control of all the parameters at your disposal, rather than relying on increasing fuel pressure to make power alone.

Thanks for all your posts. I'll definitely look down the remap route after getting my clutch checked.
Time to start pricing it all up.

Oh and Happy New Year
