He has a huge amount of maps both generic & custom. If you tell him what you want he'll suggest a map & then tweek it to your requirements.
The map he's just put in mine is one that he's used on several Anni's. The map in mine is smooth & boost hangs on all the way to the red line.
I didn't want too much of an initial peak as you tend to get surging & hestation issues at partial throttle. Very exciting at full throttle tho.
I may stick a Forge 007p on in the future, but thats a reliability improvement not a peformance one. I had one on my last revo'd mk4, & to be honest I couldn't feel any difference between the 007p & the stock recirc valve. The stock VAG valve can fail after a while due to the effect of the heat from the engine on the plastic, but generally it either works or doesn't.
I do have a K&N panel air filter fitted to the Anni, & that helps things along a bit. Lot of forum members prefer the Green Cotton filters because the K&N's have a reputation for oiling up the MAF, but I ran my last mk4 for 2 years with the K&N without any problems.
Yeah the remap seems to be good when the ecu isn't in limp mode.
It's nothing to do with Chris's remap though.
I've been getting a fault code (17705 pressure drop between turbo & throttle body), which is proving to be a bit of a problem to solve. Seems that I've got a boost leak somewhere, but so far I haven't been able to find it. [8o|]
Loads of posts on the forum about this 17705 prob, but no definitive answer to it.
So at this point I'm not sure if I'm really getting the full benefit of the remap.
Despite all this the car is quick though. I stuck my spare n75j valve on & the car kicks like a mule.[<)]
