Remap or no remap -

Good Morning,

I am looking for some advice, i recently bought a my99 Turbo 2000 with a blown engine,the engine would run but knocked massivly, i have replaced the engine only to find the turbo was shot, i have now replaced the turbo (TD04 original) and was wanting to know your thoughts of why the engine failed, the car has covered 130k miles, had full service history at a main dealer, the car has a few mods - Induction kit, dump valve, stainless exhaust, front cat is still on but straight through from there, strut brace, i dont think the car has been remapped, if i leave the mods in place will it need to be done? and does it have to be ecutek.

The engine is an EJ205

Thanks in advance

i'd get it rolled to to make sure all is running fine,could be any number of reasons the the engine to go....ECUtek is the only map for the MY99-00 unless you go after market ECU..

new engine or new turbo (even if replaced like for like) wants to be mapped for it, no point in spending 2k on a new engine to then have it go bang cos it wasnt setup right.
