    apexi do a power fc but its discontinued to my knowledge.a good second hand one with a commander would set you back about 850 sterling! far as i know tdp in wicklow and ttm in galway map cars for 95 octane.i havent heard any feedback though.I plan on gettin my cars standard ecu mapped in england during the summer.where abouts in ireland are you?

    I went to ECC and will be back up there next week for a remap but if your in it for the long term and best value I'd suggest going across the water. .

    Well i'd agree with the first statement, but not with the second.
    Like has already been said, AI Autosport have a proven track record.

    A simple fix for 95 Octane fuel is to back off your base timing at your dizzy. I've never run 95 octane fuel but moving it from a 20deg base to a 15deg would probably do it.

    5degs retarded might be a bit OTT so wait for a second opinion or check the internet. Taking it to a tuner will only do similar but cost you £200 rather than £20 for a timing gun from Ebay.

    Jus an alternative.

    Edit.. Just realsied this thread has been dragged from beyond the grave :doh:
