Just a quicky ,i had a remap before xmas with rod bolts ,fuel pump ,3 inch exhaust but while mapping we only managed 330 bhp and was told it wasnt holding boost and needed a controller, so i got a boost controller fitted but havent had time to drop the car off for setup ,meanwhile i removed the front bumper and noticed a loose intercooler pipe which i re tightened now the car is boosting 1.1 bar (before 0.9) what power should i be seeing now ? Thanks

If it had a boost leak while it was being mapped, chances are the map won't be correct as the load sites will not be the same. Can you not pop it back to where it was done and get them to recheck it?
