If I do a ECU remap, do I need to change something else?
I was thinking about doing the ECU re-map on my 2001 230K, and today I saw that a local company is offering a very good promotion.
The changes they are promising are:
from 197 hp / 5500rpm to 213 hp / 5590 rpm
from 280 Nm / 2500rpm to 321 Nm / 2380 rpm
from 240 km/h max speed to 244 km/h max speed
from 7.2 sec 0-100 km/h to 6.9 sec 0-100 km/h
I know it doesn't sound like much, but the price is really good - something like 170 British pounds
My question is if I decide to do it, do I have to change something else?
Will the clutch be OK, will the gearbox be OK etc
Any help will be appreciated
