    Mapping it will make a difference to performance and you will get better mpg, my only comment is £352 from Celtic seems rather steep. Going rate is usually £250 max for top end stuff.

    Some load the premium others don't but you do need to tell them as if you are involved in an accident then some insurance companies do check for remaps before paying out to ensure they are declared :thumb:

    If this is any help... my insurance company wanted the equivalent of 30% increase in premium for a re-map that was supposed to take the car up to 170bhp from its current 143bhp.

    (I don't really believe that the re-map would have produced all that power in real life - which was OK with me, I was hoping for a smoother power delivery curve rather than all-out power increase - but because the insurer based they premium on the tuning company's claimed bhp, had I gone for it, I would have ended-up paying higher insurance premium for bhp I never actually got...)

    Do check your insurance. As said above. Many companies will refuse cover, some add about £50 and some nothing.

    Sadly my experience is that they don't answer emails either - they must be very busy, perhaps something to do with their low price...

    Sorry for the slight OT but those prices seem quite reasonable - at least from a Belgian perspective. Going rate here is 600 euro for my C220, some not even including a rolling road. Celtic Tuning wanted £395 but since they don't have a dealer in Belgium I would have to ship the ECU to them, and I don't fancy that.

    For the GC and its 211 bhp engine, I think there are quite some improvements to be made, if the C/E 320 CDI engines (it is 99 % the same engine, no?) are anything to go by.

    you want re-mapping done by someone who is an expert on that particular engine...
    ... so really you probably want to ask around in the Jeep forums :)

    We used remap science for Ford mapping before we started doing remaps ourselves and they are OK. Jeep engine is a dead easy remap and don't pay more then £250
