As my engine build should be finished soon, I need to plan ahead and think about buying an aftermarket ECU and then have it mapped.

I know there are some talented mappers out in Europe as well see some really nice cars making good power and drivability. I am interested to see what is out there as a possible alternative to the UK - any recommendation so I can investigate and look at my options.

I used Greg at Protuner for all my cars and never been dissapointed.

Protuner | Engine tuning and ECU mapping specialists

Every time I visit he has a high power skyline Gtr in, at the last visit he was rebuilding and mapping an R34 with a Ripz rb30 as the previous owner had become disappointed with the service from RK.

My second choice would be Ryan G of Syvecs but due to his popularity he is very difficult to get hold book in a reasonable timeframe

Ryan g and pat for syvecs!
I guess it's ecu dependent!
Rk's race car was mapped by Ryan g
Mark @ Mgt's r32 Gtr track car was mapped by Ryan g
Most of svms are Ryan g
Jm imports r35 was Ryan g
Jamie p Ryan g
Etc etc...

I know Ryan travels around the world mapping he's that good!
But the only problem is he will only map syvecs as I understand it, the only down side is he has very little time!

I don't know any1 good for link as we don't use many, sorry!

I'm not interested in drag cars being mapped or big power cars that owners do not care about driving on the road where you need that part throttle refinement and feel like an oem ecu map.

I will speak to Ryan and see what he says and if can can do what I am asking for. If not I will continue to search for a good dedicate mapper and look to Europe for some who takes pride in the work and not care about just making money out of you.

But I do care about road driving. I might have a lot of power but I can still get trough a exhaust emissions for MOT.

Check out maxxtuning.se and check out customers cars.
He has also made his own ECU.

Spoke to Ryan G who recommended a Syvecs Ecu but was an interesting conversation more so about part throttle and wanting the car to feel like oem.

ryan mapped his/my r35 to absolute perfection on syvecs ;)

it is genuinely perfect, not a hiccup anywhere, but it will take time and cost money £300 on a dyno for the morning wont cut it.

ryan is as honest as they come aswell

When I was looking turbos I contacted Owen dev I was not impressed and the less said the better. Out of principle I would not give them my money.

Ryan came across well and honest does inspire confidence after I told him what I want and the kinds of cars I had experienced with poor maps.

Just waiting on a quote from him.

If you looking outside of the UK, I recommend Robbie at TDP in Wicklow, Ireland. I've had a great service form him over the years.

That's fine but you asked about mapping not turbos, Mark is the top MoTeC mapper and I found him to be excellent without the BS others who have been mentioned come out with.

Just waiting on a quote from him.
Hope you have better luck than the TS car.

I hear nothing but good things about Ryan and I too have done a fair bit of research. Ryan is my first choice to map the S8 on the GTR.

Im not au fait with the details of what you refer to Matt but it would be unusual for a mapper of Ryan's experience to destroy an engine due to map alone. Ultra high performance engines can (and do!!) let go on the dyno on initial mapping for various reasons...
