Insignia CDTi Remap and DPF Removal

Insignia CDTi Remap and DPF Removal

ECU Remapped 02/12/2013

Gain 35BHp 65Nm

Starting off the month like we finished the last – another Vauxhall Insignia with a blocked DPF – replacement costs over a thousand pounds – while removing the filter remapping the ecu for improved economy and deleting the DPF strings costs less than half the price

BMW 335i Remap

BMW 335i Remap

ECU Remapped 03/12/2013
Gain 78BHp 90Nm
The old MSD80 is my favourite (not) 52 minute read and another 14 minutes to write an ecu and its only 2.1 Mb of data – still the results are always good on the 335i BMWs more smooth power and better throttle response

VW Passat 2.0 Tdi CR DPF Removal

VW Passat 2.0 Tdi CR DPF Removal

DPF Removed 06/12/2013
Another Taxi that has 130k miles with a blocked DPF – this one only had 1 fault code showing the DPF full beyond threshold – so out it came ( after dropping the front sub frame ) and remapping the ecu so it does not try and regenerate – no tuning was done on this vehicle

Mazda 3 MPS 258Bhp Remap

Mazda 3 MPS 258Bhp Remap

ECU Remapped 13/12/2013
Gain 30BHp 60Nm
The Mps is a bit of a rarity but those in the know are aware they are a potent beast and with a remap this one can spin its wheels up in 4th gear – well it was a bit damp on the road for the test drive – improved throttle response as well adds the the drivability

VW Transporter T5.1 2.0 TDi 102 Remap

VW Transporter T5.1 2.0 TDi 102 Remap

ECU Remapped 13/12/2013
Gain 38 BHp 75Nm
The newer Transporters with the 2.0 Tdi engine rather than the 1.9 or 2.5s have to be bench tuned but we have done so many now we can virtually remove the ecu with our eyes closed – so 90 minutes all in and the van is now faster smoother and more fuel efficient and if the usual scene is true will be good for another 200k miles

VW Touran 2.0 TDI 140 DSG Remap

VW Touran 2.0 TDI 140 DSG Remap

ECU Remapped 14/12/2013
Gain 40 BHp 80Nm
Having owned this vehicle from virtually new so 6 years or so the customer was looking for improvement in performance and economy and that’s what we have done with a highish performance upgrade that will save on buying a new car

Ford Focus ST 3 remap

Ford Focus ST 3 remap

ECU Remapped 14/12/2013
Gain 50BHp 100Nm
These figures are for a stock car up to our remap but in this case the car had already been remapped before but looking through the file we could certainly improve on the previous remap – and the customer certainly felt the more instant response from our map – I will blog about this more later to show the differences between what we would do to the previous remapper

Audi TT 2.0 TFSi 211 Remap

Audi TT 2.0 TFSi 211 Remap

ECU Remapped 16/12/2013
Gain 40+ bhp 80+ Nm
This is a 2013 model vehicle fitted with eth MED17.1 ECU so reads as T-Prot on the bench and takes a while to get out of he car but the gains even with the dsg box are well worthwhile

med 17.1 tri-core tuning

Here is the ecu from the Audi TT on the bench as you can see just a single Boot pin to be attached – the anti rumble strip on the right hand side of the board is always a bit awkward to break when opening the ecus lid

VW GOLF 1.9 TDi 105 Remap

VW GOLF 1.9 TDi 105 Remap

ECU Remapped 16/12/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
Wow I thought it would make a difference but I didn’t realise how much – that’s the kind of comment we take for granted but love here at FlashRemapping – turning a run of the mill vw diesel into something a lot more special

Vauxhall Astra VXR Remap and Lambda Delete

Vauxhall Astra VXR Remap and Lambda Delete

ECU Remapped 23/12/2013
Gain 40Bhp 80Nm
Because this Astra had had the pre CAT removed and the CAT replaced with a Remus 100 cell race CAT the MIL light came on occasionally with p0420 code – CAT efficiency below threashold even tho it does squeak through an MOT so we have remapped the car for extra performance and deleted the Lambda sensor from the ecu data so the code will not come back – Its certainly pretty swift now

Dodge Journey 2.0 CRD Remap

Dodge Journey 2.0 CRD Remap

ECU Remapped 27/12/2013
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
Anyone want to take a guess who supplies the engine for this GM owned Dodge – Yep VW – Crazy but true but that’s good because this is a very tunable vehicle even with the auto gearbox – better throttle response and more power – What a great Christmas present from the MRS

BMW X6 E71 35Xd Remap

BMW X6 E71 35Xd Remap

ECU Remapped 27/12/2013
Gain 55Bhp 130Nm
The shape of the X6 is a tad unusual being like the X5 but more couped and with only two rear seats its a bit of a fashion statement. So to go with the show its needs some go and now with great performance gains it has plenty of that too – Note that even being a 2010 vehicle this is an OBD tune as it still uses the EDC16 ecu

Mercedes CLK 220 CDi Remap

Mercedes CLK 220 CDi Remap

ECU Remapped 30/12/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
The CLK merc is a little pedestrian with just 150Bhp through its slush box but a remap really makes the difference adding 38bhp and 75Nm makes this a much swifter cruiser
