You may not make massive gains from a remap with the mods you have but it will be better.

How much you got to spend lol
Depends what you want from the car, if its a daily driver id get it mapped as it is and see what you think.

There overall peak power wont be much more - probs 10-15bhp but you will gain in the mid range as on a custom map I am able to concentrate fully on getting the torque to come in sooner and smoother.

Another benefit will be fuel economy as the prodrive map is still fairly rich, so leaning the map out will create a more efficient running car.

Just down the A14 from you outside Cambridge. 350 for a full remap.
