    Smile Help, please - how will stage 1 remap affect Ids+ / Sport button?

    Hi - can anyone offer advice / experience pls? I am thinking of stage 1 remap on 236 hp vxr....
    Can this be done to work off Sport button only (or can only certain tuners do this?) or is it likely map will change across whole range ie rendering sport mode inactive - and does a map change the ecu so much that ids doesn't work? I have heard of car being mapped and then couldn't feel the Ids working on the suspension / steering like it did before the map. Essentially are there better people to do the map to retain the Ids / sport effectiveness or am I being daft? All help appreciated, Cheers

    Default Help, please - how will stage 1 remap affect Ids+ / Sport button?

    I think the best thing to do is ask some tuners.

    Rabbid mapped mine and the sport button works and makes a difference but I've heard others say that he's deleted the sport button on their maps.

    All sorts can be done. But you can't effectively load the map onto the sports button. The sports button mainly just gives you full throttle response.

    I like the choice though with mine as the throttle sensitivity is a little to much with the sport button on when driving around town etc so nice to have the choice to put in on when going for a blast

    These are the things you need to ask the tuner mate. Don't go in and come out with something you didn't want. A decent tuner will sort you out

    I had mine done at MW Performance in Chester - They are a VX Tuning specialist. The map is a super chips map and its mapped to the sport button, When sport button isn't active its "Optimised" which suits the wife

    I had the stage 1 map, Iridium plugs and k&n panel filter

    BHP increase : 43
    NM gain : 51
    Lb/Ft gain : 38

    Can't fault the map at all

    Anything but gm ngk R or "platinum" as they're also called can cause running issues. The tips apparently can fall off iridiums causing spensive cylinder damage ....
