no, had mine done in the past.

Prodrive use Ecutek for the PPP just lock the ecu, so you would need to pay for the license at the start then just mapping time.

only issue is you lose the PPP status, can be more cost effective to sell your PPP's ECU and then find a std one to Ecutek..............

Not convinced that ya can actually go anywhere for mapping after its been mapped somewhere, im sure i read on some forum maybe scoobynet some tuners lock the ecu to prevent it bein fooked about with after theyve mapped it an then ya need a code to unlock it before ya can do anything-could be wrong though.
