Turbo diesel engines respond exceptionally well to remapping, you can usually expect to see a 20-30% gain in performance.

Turbo petrol engines respond very well to remapping, you can usually expect to see a 15-30% gain in performance.

Naturally aspirated engines do not respond quite as well to remapping as their turbo counterparts, realistically you can expect a 5-10% performance gain.

On pre-2001 cars, for the majority remapping involved unsoldering a chip from the ECU motherboard and either adding a socket or a new chip for the updated map data to be stored on, with advances in technology we no longer need to do this as most vehicles can have their software updated via the OBD2 port.
