sorry to say mate yes, my98 can't be mapped and i think they can't be piggybacked either so you'll need to replace whole ecu system

Would recommend zen performance at northampton also,myself, phil type r and mr freeze(owns a 22b) all use zen dont get me wrong scoobyclinics ok and only up the road from me its just that pauls own demo car sells his skills for me even before he`s touched mine and rarely at events has any problems.
http://zenperformance.co.uk/ (Also highly respected amongst other tuners)

Though to be honest roger clark motorsports about the nearest to you at leicester mate top top top place but more expensive than paul at zen-though do take mine there for servicing.(if you havent seen roger clark motorsports own car out-u need to)

Zen Performance do do a great job They are miles away from me in either case (whether I'm in North Devon or up in Coven near Wolverhampton) but they are carefull and explain whats right and wrong with the car, if anything.

When I bought the car I had my cam belt and tensoners done with a full service. Its something I always will get done first and formost as I'd rather pay it out and know its working rather than have it snap or something as the previous owner said it was done at xxxxx miles... Piece of mind for me
