2, but the 3rd sensor is kind of pointless anyway

The TMC box plugs into three sensors I believe from memory of fitting it, I think lol

It's like Armani vs M&S, both do the job but one has a name and a brand to go with it so they charge more just because they can

Heyyyyy I work for M&S lmao!!!

Fair enough but this map runs well within the parameters of the sensors, turbo and all relevant engine parts. It's simply a better map, more efficient and better built too.

I have had my box running a 'harder' custom map with even more power and torque on the top or 2nd to top setting (E and D) for a year now and it hasn't skipped a beat; neither have the 4 other Bluespark owners I have regular contact with.

The TMC is certainly tried and tested, however the Bluespark box is just as safe and is priced in a much more competitive manner. Simply speak to a professional mapper and they will explain the technical side, but the only tuning box that compares is the G-tach one and that's mega money (if you have a budget that is).

I have a bluespark box too on setting C and it's an absolute hoot to drive :) although not great in the wet as it keeps spinning the wheels :S very curious on setting D would I lose abit of torque then on setting C?

Hi Bertie,
I would always go remap over a plug in box unless it's a new car under warranty
as the Tmc box can be unplugged and is therefore untraceable,also you could
Sell it on after a few years and still recoup at least 50% of your outlay.
I had an Angle Tuning remap done 8 months ago and the car has not missed a beat!
I'd definitely recommend them,Rob is the man to go to.
If you need any more info please Pm me as I've had lots of work(and more to come
next month)done by them and I'm 100% happy with the service/results.

Dr Pepper, I'm having it RR'd on the 1st of Feb, think possible map. I can spin in 3rd even when it's fairly dry

Tmc gets the boxes made and are not like universal boxes
Tmc supply tuning boxes world wide for all turbo cars
They have been going for years
The program's are tried and tested for every car
And the later boxes give you an option to increase or decrease the power
Tmc have personally run Abarth cars for the last 4 years
And offer other products too
All the mapping in each box
And harness are designed individually
