Hence my rider of 'until fairly recently' ... ;)

As to the gearbox, it's the 6HP26 on the TdV8 (6HP28 was fitted to the 5.0 SC), but I'll look into it. What did you ask for when you contacted them??? :thumbright:

Yours will have the 6HP28. Was standard from 2009 onwards, especially the 2010 MY with the standard (not Brembo) brakes. It's their gearbox remap, they only do one. You don't need the engine remap to go with it but the box really benefits from early lock up and it stops a lot of slipping when you're towing. All that slipping wears out the clutch packs.

Price for a D3 gearbox map is £195 - not sure if that is with vat - looks like it is only available in Kent though :cry:

Finally chased them down today - "We can offer that with our engine tuning service, but wouldn't be prepared to do it separately."

Not best impressed!!!! :headbang:

They are doing mine without an engine tune - but then mine has already been mapped!
