Decent offorading, 130 miles to the light ain't that bad..

I guess re-setting to stock map would be the first step. If that doesn't help then it's on to more investigation. Anyone exp. remapping really screwing with economy??? What have people paid for professional remapping?
With Tuneecu (or 990 friend with tuneecu) check if O2's are off, set them on and testride. Test TB's synch and if no change, load stock map.
