    What is the best way to increase your car performance? I heard a lot about ECU remapping, rototest and performance remapping. Are these implementable? Will it help me enhancing my car's performance with the same old engine?

    It really depends on what engine you're planning on modifying?

    Remaps work Ok but results can vary greatly.

    Cheapest and easiest is to train the nut behind the wheel.
