I need a little help deciding what to do.

My car goes in for its first ever service soon when it hits 10,000miles (963miles away) and after its service i want to start upping the power. now im stuck between the two options that I have at the moment:

option 1: 50shot of NOS
option 2: Remapped ECU

both are going to cost about the same to do and both will give me an extra 50bhp, I dont want to go higher than that with the NOS cos i dont want to burn out my clutch.

my car stock is 131.7bhp @the wheels
with ECU it would be: 181.7bhp
and with NOS its : 231.7bhp
and maybe more with the Green cotton filter thats been ordered. the car is now 6months old and i hope would take the extra power.

either way both NOS and ECU will be done after time but i need advice on what one to do first, if anyone has had there car remapped please let me know how much diffrence it made and the same for the NOS.

thanks. thumbsup

Yeah-remap first and be sure to tell them ur NOSin it so they can richen it a little. This helps with the NOS and negates the need for a second remap once the nos is fitted. Runnin rich wont cause any problems i think

ECU mate smile

that way you have power every single time you put your foot down rather than every now and then when you push a button, and you dont have to re-fil your ECU either smile

OK so I will get the remap first, the reason why i asked this question is i thought it would of been better to get the NOS first so when the ECU guy is workin his magic he can configure it to work better with the nitrous. And im going for a remapp rather than superchip so there is no visible diffrence for the skoda service people to notice and stop my warranty, but the NOS is a bit harder to hide thumbsdown I have been in contact with loads of tuning peeps and they say the best cars to chip are Turbo's and diesels ! wehey! mines both so im lookin for some good BHP.

Anyway its a few weeks off now but its all in the pipeline!.

I would say to go for the ECU up-grade matey, Nitrous is great and especially on Diesels but it runs out and as Adam said you dont have to re-fill your ECU smack

Once that is done then you could always add a little shot of Nitrous (25bhp). Fuelling shouldnt be a problem with a small shot of nitrous as diesels run on a Dry Nitrous set-up.

Get the remap done first , but make sure you tell them you are thnking if adding nos as they can get it 2 over fuel . Remamber thet your remap will give you 50bhp exra , but nos will not give you 50bhp @your max power !! you will use it lower in the rev range when your engine is only making 50 -90 bhp . grizz

50 bhp from an ECU remap?!? That's a bit optimistic.
Stick to NO2.
