I found the box really good, and hrag agreed that it transformed his Safari without any issues either.

That said, why don't you just get the ECU flashed to the 178 bhp Yeti official map? Wouldn't that be a cleaner and safer way of getting a bump up?

Briskoda guys suggest putting on the Octavia VRS discs and pads with carriers after such a power upgrade. This is reportedly cheaper than going for the Brembos that come with the 178 bhp Yeti, and pretty effective.

Thanks. As for ECU flashing to 170 bhp map, I read somewhere, the turbo is different for the 140 bhp and 170 bhp variants. And won't ECU remapping involve higher risk than a piggy tunning box, especially when it is a skoda? For vRS discs, I don't think it will fit in the stock 16 alloys. Need at least 17" I believe.

It could be because the Yetis abroad do come with 17" wheels.
