I spoke to Dan at Turners who said its not worth doing at stage 1 remap,it would cause a lumpy tickover.
I will look at getting the injectors cleaned for now.

I didn’t have mine deleted at the time as I was only stage 1 myself, will need new o rings for the injectors as well once you remove them.

It put an extra £101 on the bill..£60 labour,the rest thermostat + seal.

What the hell £60 to change that. Id have thought a nice mechanic wouldn’t put labour on changing the thermostat if the manifold is off anyway :-(
