ECU Remapping, Chipping and Chip Tuning

FlashRemapping, April 2014

 

Ford Focus ST 2.5 Remap

 Ford Focus ST 2.5 Remap 

ECU Remapped 01/04/2014
Gain 50BHp 100Nm 
The Great “Value for money” Focus ST is a lively car with 225BHp stock ( although realistically nearer 210 ) this one came in with a nasty oil leak from the breather filter which was replaced and then we remapped it – certainly a lot quicker and more responsive now

BMW E60 520D Remap

BMW E60 520D Remap 

ECU Remapped 01/04/2014
Gain 40BHp 80Nm 
Another regular customer coming back for improved performance and better throttle response – Now the clocks have changed we are happy to come out in the evening if this is the easiest time for the customer

Range Rover 3.0 TD6 Remap

Range Rover 3.0 TD6 Remap 

ECU Remapped 04/04/2014
Gain 40BHp 120Nm 
A brace of TD6 Range Rovers tuned to end the week – and great gains from the BMW straight 6 Diesel engines will help massively the weighty and UnAerodynamic 4WD get down the road a lot better

Mini Copper S 1.6 Turbo Remap

Mini Copper S 1.6 Turbo Remap 

ECU Remapped 05/04/2014

Gain 25BHp 55Nm 

Lower than a rattlesnakes belly this Mini had real trouble getting into the drive for me to get working – still the MED17.2 ECU is a quick read and even faster write so just down to the boys to get the file sorted – 40 minutes all in and its now 200+ bhp and a very quick little car – I must say after getting my mini van a few weeks ago Ive grown a real soft spot for the BMW minis – really well finished and still the great handling they have always been renowned for

BMW 123D ECU Remapping

BMW 123D ECU Remapping 

ECU Remapped 07/04/2014
Gain 42BHp 85Nm 
When I was at school my teachers drove really poor cars – Austin Allegros and the such apart from the RE teacher who had a Kawasaki 1200 motorbike which was nice ( didnt make him cool tho )
This teacher drives a nice low mile BMW 123 Diesel that is cool, they come with 204BHp and 400Nm of torque from its 2 litre diesel engine with twin sequential turbos – but there is more we can do 
now with 244BHp 485Nm of torque. Lets put that into perspective an Audi R8 4.2 has 430Nm of torque – 
Official figures also say the Bimmer will do 54.3mpg – realistically thats probably 42-45mpg but still very sensible numbers that will improve with a remap unless you drive like Lewis Hamilton

Vauxhall Zafira 1.9 CDTi 120Bhp Remap

Vauxhall Zafira 1.9 CDTi 120Bhp Remap 

ECU Remapped 08/04/2014
Gain 38Bhp 75Nm 
Another Zafira remapped – THis one was the lower powered 120BHp version of the 1.9CDTi engine – After upgrading his caravan the owner was aware that the car was underpowered so a remap is exactly what is required

Audi A5 2.0 TDi Quattro Remapping

Audi A5 2.0 TDi Quattro Remapping 

ECU Remapped 8/04/2014
Gain 40Bhp 80Nm 
Another edc17 bench tune – this one being the cp20 tc1796 x-rom but still the same process and still the same great results – improved performanace, throttle response and if the same as the last one I mapped a couple of weeks ago 12-14% better fuel economy

Jaguar x-type 2.0d Remap

Jaguar x-type 2.0d Remap 

ECU Remapped 11/04/2014
Gain 30BHp 60Nm 
The X-type is quite a classy car compared to its Mondeo underpinnings and will tune pretty well too and extra 30BHp on top of the 130BHp stock makes a much nicer drive

Jaguar XJ 3.0D Remap

Jaguar XJ 3.0D Remap 

ECU Remapped 15/04/2014
Gain 35BHp 60Nm 
After a bit of a struggle to remove the Passenger / Bonnet airbag the ecu then came out of the beautiful Jaguar XJ for us to tune on the bench. Really nice results for the big cat smoother, more powerful and with improved MPG

Audi a6 2.0 tdi 177 2013 Remap

Audi A6 2.0 tdi 177 2013 Remap 

ECU Remapped 18/04/2013
Gain 40Bhp 80Nm 
Revo could not do it another London based tuner could not do it – I was a little unsure as it was a November 2013 vehicle that may have been TProt 12 – but fortunately it wasnt and in 75 minutes the car is now smoother more powerful and with improved mpg

Citroen Berlingo 1.6 HDi 90 Remap

Citroen Berlingo 1.6 HDi 90 Remap 

ECU Remapped 24/04/2014
Gain 30BHp 60Nm 
Not just any old Berlingo this one – its the Enterprise – gets all the toys, leccy windows, air con , bluetooth, the fully monty – Tony knew what to expect as we tuned his Kangoo a couple of years back – maybe he didnt expect us to remove the ecu and open it up but thats what we need to do on these later Citroens but 2 hours later it now revs a lot more freely – see you again in a couple of years with the next van Tony

Land Rover Defender 2.4 Remap

Land Rover Defender 2.4 Remap 

ECU Remapped 25/04/2014
Gain 32BHp 65Nm 
Looking for fuel savings I always give these Defenders a bit more as the Slab front means Aerodynamics basically dont exist so a bit of extra power helps – Nice utilitarian looks and drive but very little depreciation make the Defender a sensible choice but really needs a bit more ooopfh – thats what we got and a smoother power delivery too

VW Golf mk6 2.0 Tdi Remap

VW Golf mk6 2.0 Tdi Remap

ECU Remap and DPF Delete 25/04/2014
Gain 35BHp 70Nm 
Another blend map along with DPF delete as this 4 year old Golf had blocked its filter – caused by a sticking turbo actuator which is still to be replaced but the DPF problem is now eliminated
Being a 2010 MK6 its a bench tune this one a edc17c46 with Infineon TC 1767 Irom – Im glad we dont have to desolder these chips

Jaguar XF 3.0D Remap

Jaguar XF 3.0D Remap

ECU Remapped 26/04/2014
Gain 35BHp 80Nm 
Another Jaguar with the 3.0 Litre Land Rover Jaguar engine that is much better with a FlashRemapping Remap – More BHp and Torque, Smoother and better MPG makes the battle with the pedestrian airbag and opening the ecu well worthwhile

Citroen DS3 1.6 Thp Remap

Citroen DS3 1.6 Thp Remap 

ECU Remapped 29/04/2014
We know this car well – It was one that we put the first Motorsport remap on – well it has changed since with some mods – Hybrid turbo, race cats, exhaust, bigger intercooler – The customer called he is a new owner of the car and booked it in to be remapped again to suit the upgrades ( It was a 198.8 BHp car before with just a panel air filter and remap) the initial runs on the dyno showed a problem only running 139Bhp due to a boost leak that was quickly sorted and mapping to suit the upgrades has produces 221.1 Bhp now – There is still a bit more to do as far as power is concerned – the air intake at the moment is not good – Forge intake and pipes will help or maybe a JCW Turbo upgrade woiuld be the best thing as we do not know the exact details of the hybrid turbo

BMW 330D Remap

BMW 330D Remap

ECU Remapped DPF Deleted and EGR Deleted 30/04/2014
Gain 45BHp 95Nm 
Another of the 3 litre BMW Diesels that are so popular and also very popular to remap – Nice gains here with the DPF removed as well, smoother power delivery and improved fuel economy
