    5 weeks today what's the general consensus on which octane fuel to map it to? Oem is 95 Ron unless I'm mistaken.

    Up to you. Your make more safe power on 99, however if you live on the moon and can't get any or you want to save 1 a tank go for whatever

    99 it is then

    I'll be getting some before and after figures, it'll be interesting (for me) to see where it's at and what it'll make.
    I did an oil and filter change a few weeks ago and the tegiwa m filter is freshly cleaned and oiled. I did the valve clearance last year too so the engine should be fairly healthy.

    Make sure you run a tank or two entirely through before the map to make sure your 100% on the new fuel

    Is there anything else that I need to discuss with them? I'm thinking that some of the set ups are optional, shift lights, launch control etc.
    How does launch control work in practice?

    Included in the price of k100 install and remap from TDI north I got launch control and shift light, launch control basically works by you holding down the throttle flat to the floor and it holds the revs at just below 4K then release the clutch and go, however in my opinion you get far to much wheel spin so you end up controlling the acceleration by clutch control anyway. Cool feature but hard to launch without wheel spin. With my Skunk 2 megapower exhaust it does sound ace when held a 4K and pops a bit

    I know they set vtec engagement at the optimum point where the higher cam starts making more power, where is that on yours out of interest?

    Mine was set at 4,900rpm this is perfect for my driving style, you could have it lower but I think it’s only worth doing this if you use your car a lot on track.
