Because cars leave the factory with a standard map that has to cope with a range of extreme conditions and climates. All cars can be improved with a custom remap.

sorry to be dim Brek but have notice benefits on doing the Lower engine mount and Decat. I presume the mounts are to get centre of gravity lower? and the decat is self explanatory?
but why do Clutch Master Cylinder. Power VIS replaced.Thermostat housing?

Instead of selecting a mapper who happens to be located in the direction you are heading it would probably be better to research who is recommended, tried and tested.And then arrange a convenient time and date to visit them,even if that means going a little out of your way.

There is no lower engine mount, it is a stabiliser otherwise the engine would swing on the top two engine mounts like a pendulum. Nothing to do with centre of gravity. Forces involved, engine will try and turn in the opposite direction to the crankshaft, braking and acceleration will shift the lower engine backwards and forwards due to the mass of the engine. Stabiliser resists these forced, hence the reason why they fail.
