Why chance it when the likes of R-tech are only a little more? Even APR has got a sale on this mont, @£350 iirc.

I had a mobile remap put on my edition 30 when I got it. Seemed to run well enough. I’ve just went APR 2+ and the guy at APR said the cheap map was running very lean low down so it was wasting a lot of fuel. Think they do that as a safety thing.

They are awful, wouldn't have one of it was free. Get something that has been developed properly, not simply thrown an extra 40% on the load maps

I think you meant running too rich low down.  A lot of cheapo maps are a too rich/too lean/too advanced disasters waiting to happen.  They either melt turbine blades from insufficient advance, or blow pistons up from too much.  It's just a matter of time.

Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.
