  • Remap Query - VXRPC

    Sorry, new to this... tried searching this but couldnt find it... if you get a remap done at VXRPC and live @ other end of the country, what happens when you get a service?? does the map stay on or do i need 2 go back across country to get the map put on after a service or do i have 2 go 2 VXRPC to get the service??? if that makes sense

    ohh, and hi all

    hi, you can get the remap done and leave it on, you dont need to take it off for a service no need at all on the other hand you could get a handheld unit from one of the tuners on here and take the map off/on at ur convenience

        lowering springs should do yes, ring around the tuners and do a bit of searching on here you will get some ideas

          They only risk to the map is if Vauxhall flash your ECU.. But if your honest with them and tell them it's mapped and not to flash it that will be fine, however if you want warrenty work done they will know its mapped and instantly refuse if they can.

            Also I believe VXRPC use the EDS map so you mgiht find another tuner does it nearer to you. Regal does it and has a hand held unit which they can send you. Dap I believe does it?

            Other tuners do other maps that aren't made by EDS..

              How near to Glasgow are ya bud?

              I have the EDS map which I believe is what VXRPC use. I have the IPF handheld unit so that I can upload and remove the maps when ever I want.

                Ive heard that if your ecu is flashed by the dealer it does not alter the tune, the remap is a series of electronic 'codes' and not affected by ecu updates etc.
                Im sure someone will be up soon to correct / confirm.
