in East Anglia there are a lot of tuners available who could help you, all franchises of one guy called Nick Lawrence who is a very good tuner originally based in Lowestoft, now based in Nurbergring.

If you are considering a remap look on his website for the nearest franchise.

(he writes all the maps, the guys just physically upload and download on his behalf)

I've had three remaps off him - enough said.

Mondeo TDCI 2.0 130 - massive difference, pulls like a train. 8.8 to sixty vs 9.8 stock.

Volvo s60 t5 geatronic 6.9 stock, 6.0 - 6.4 modded depended on fwd grip

NO I AM NOT SPONSORED OR AFFLIATED BUT IVE HAD 3 MAPS OFF HIM

Was a fun car to drive
We had the same tune on my old mans Volvo S60 D5 185 on a 2007 plate I think. Likewise wasnt RR'd but was on the car 2 years and 50k and not a hint of trouble when we sold her on. Power delivery was still refined and made it a pleasure to drive under normal conditions but tons of guts to playwith.

Having since driven cars with stock close to 250bhp on a derv I suspect the figures were fairly optimistic but I'd wager it was still pushing in the 220-230 range. Either way, it made the delivery under normal driving very enjoyable.
