    Celtic Tuning have a good rep although recently someone has little success but that may have been a car issue. Only problem i have with them it's the cost, it's much more expensive up here because they sub contract it out but you may be able to make a deal.

    Angel Tuning also have a good reputation.

    GSR Services in Beith do remaps. I'm not sure if it's off the shelf or custom but they build rally cars so should will know what they are doing.

    What clutch kit did they advise because I struggled to find anything for the diesel CR-V. There were some for the petrol though. I'm waiting to hear back from GSR as they are in the Middle East at the racing and I'm also waiting to hear back from Moorfield Motor Services as they have a 4WD rolling road also so may be able to cut a deal and get both a remap and before/after test results.

    That's the place I thinking about earlier about only showing kits for petrol CR-Vs. I'll have to wait and find out what's wrong with my car first but are you talking about a deal with Celtic Tuning? I think it's an Audi Garage in Paisley which do it for them.

    no if we could even get a deal at Moorfield Motor Services as they say they can do custom remaps plus they have the rolling road or even gsr i don't think that celtic will do a reducing on there price but could ask them

    Celtic said to me I'd have to discuss it with the local garage they use but if I were in England I could get it done for much less as they'd find to me. Was thinking that I may be visiting friends in Sunderland soon....

    But the Rolling road with be a good thing.

    considder the cost of replacing your clutch as well as the re-map. the extra torque will definatly cause it to slip.

    They came back with two prices, either £220 plus VAT or £300 plus VAT depending on the ECU. But I think the latter is for the I-DTEC in 2010 onwards as I think the ECU changed then. Looking to see what deal they can do for two cars plus a dyno before and after.

    I would recommend giving Andrew Baird at Automek in East Kilbride a call. If they don't do it themselves they would recommend the best place to get this kind of work done. Just Google Andrew Baird Automek and you'll find loads of good stuff written about him and the guys mostly from Honda/Japanese enthusiasts as this has been their speciality. They know their stuff.

    They rebuilt the top end of my MX5. Highly recommended.
