    Stage 1 Tune?

    Now the owner of a 2007/08 Saab 9-3. I've had an Aero in the past and liked it so decided I wanted a 2.8 Aero and really like the smooth power delivery. I have plans for a stage 1 upgrade and have been looking at Maptun upgrade from Neo Bros here in the UK so if anyone has any experience then that would be great.
    Cheers
    Matt

    also look at jzw tuning..the 2.8 like batteries due to its location to the turbo and coils..
    My 9-3 audio,2 x cd changers,aux-in & Bluetooth audio streaming..

    You won't go wrong with the Maptun upgrade.
    I have the stage 3 on my 2.8
    You can get higher numbers but your clutch will slip and you'll eat coils

    What's the score with the maptune remap, as in figures etc. I'm also thinking of getting my 2.8 mapped but in two minds whether to go with jzw or another map. I know the jzw pushes things further but will it eat coils etc
