Hi guys, I was contemplating having the car's ECU remapped by a company in the US. They suggest anything from 25-40bhp improvement (depending on additional induction/engine work) within "safe" parameters.
Questions:
A) Would you? Should I?
B) Anyone know anyone in Oz that can do this?

Cheers

No worries.

360 are very well tuned in the first place.

There are only very very tiny gains to be had in actual performance.

The ONLY real gain are in perceived performance, whereby the throttle map is simply re-written to make it more aggressive.... ie, any given pedal input is amplified, making the car go harder relatively.... But in real terms, the gains are negligible, the risks are high, as are the costs.

save and buy a 430.

Cool, thanks.....found a cheap 06 model, 30,000km, needs clutch, control arms etc.... For $210 k....and an 07 with 3500kms for $250....which one in your professional opinion?

Virtually useless without the throttle bodies, air boxes, air flow meters and entire intake manifold too.

FWIW, I have in stock entire complate intake manifold for 360 Challenge race car NOT stradale (excluding injectors), I also have a complete intake manifold for 550 maranello, inc looms and injectors/throttles etc etc.

Unlikely to need control arms, you can replace the ball joints if you know what/who to use.

either needs checking out first, to know what is the better value.

Low mileage cars are only any good value if you plan on not driving them. Putting miles on them depreciates them alarmingly.
