I've bought a couple of Rs and T5s with RICA maps over the years.

Don't do it. Bloody awful & you stand fairly decent chance of bending a rod as they bring the boost in hard & fast at lowish RPM. Not good in a P1 with chocolate rods.

I've generally returned to standard - but Tim has mapped one of my cars very well (he is considered the king kiddie when it comes to Volvo me 4.4 mapping) but as mentioned above MTE or Shem are also viable options.

Cheers, Morgan
