    has anybody actually got their copen remapped using a piggyback or standalone at all? Just wanting to see what others have done. Already done some digging and found a few ecus with harnesses for the 650cc copen so have a few options. Just wondering if anybody has actually done it on here as mine over fuels incredibly and is losing power because of it

    I'm in the process of having a Unichip fitted to mine.
    It's been about 3 weeks so far as know one has done one before and Unichip has had to write some new firmware to make it work.
    Apparently Copens have an unusual RPM trigger which is causing problems.
    The tuner said he has had a 30% power increase so far just by adjusting the fueling.
    He expects more gains once they can sort out the timing.

    Oh mine is the turbo Jap spec I believe is what we got in OZ

    I thought the Oz spec was different - does yours have the seatbelt light?

    I don't know about seatbelt light and cars not here to check.

    I thought the OZ cars were the Jap spec because the D-Sport ECU works with ours.
    Could be wrong

    I'm just basing my Oz spec on the manuals - thought they had the seatbelt warning lights, but I could be wrong.

    Liam, I've got D Sport ECU, exhaust, filter, plugs, intercooler, intake pipes and the gold panels
    Other kit is a BOV and Magic Tank
    My battery was loose (bear with me) and I noticed a pipe circa 8mm dia. Which had a damaged non return valve so it was not together, in the absence of anything better I used a rawl plug as a connecting tube
    The improvement in performance (-2secs) and fuel economy (+25%) was astounding
    Check your pipe I think it's the vapour recirculation system
