Re-map Question!!!

Hi Guys, im looking at having my V re-mapped later this (all upgrades now done) will the standard actuator cope with the increased boost (1.5bar) or do i need up to upgrade that too.

Also my car boosts to 1bar now so what will the boost be at the actuator end?

Cheers

Paul.

As long as it's in good condition, yes.

Not sure what you mean by your 2nd question, as the reading on your boost gauge / ECU signal should near equate to the pressure actuator.

Sorry mate, i meant to say the standard E5 turbo produces 1bar of boost to the inlet manifold so what would the boost pressure be at the actuator to open the the wastegate.

For instance if i was to upgrade my actuator to the forge type then what size spring would i need to obtain 1.5bar from the turbo?

Cheers

Paul.

Paul, you don't need to change the actuator for a remap, the std one is fine.

They normally only take V's up to about 1.4 bar max on ECUtec anyway.

Cheers Geoff, Any news on the mapper in Hull?

They only do VII - IX's, and its not a proper ECUtec remap, sounds like a std uprated map loaded onto the ECU.
