JI wonder if that's what the agent from Elephant was thinking about, in which case I'd say he was fair to suggest that remapping by soldering is indeed more risky than a tuning box (with the caveat that tuning boxes rely on the ECU to correctly respond to the false signals it provides in a way that does not risk safety or reliability).
Thanks @Dippy - I was aware of the difference but nice link that you sent. I challenged the man at Elephant on the refusal of them insuring remapped cars and he tried to use the argument that chipping (therefore soldering) was not as risky (to the insurer then I guess) as remapping and that was the reason a remapped car could not be insured by Elephant.
So will have to start shopping around ....
Be careful. These engines are running way under what they are capable of when stock. Stage 1 + TCU remap (which raises the rpm limit hence more peak power) gave me 35% more power. Stage 2 (supercharger pulley + airbox) gave me 52% more power.
