Mercedes Vito 113 Remap

Mercedes Vito 113 Remap 

ECU Remapped 03/12/2014
Gain 38BHp 75Nm 
This was a 2012 Mercedes Vito but because the manufacturer has switched to delphi ecus on the 2148cc engine we can tune these via the diagnostic port – no anti-tune ecus here – nice gains and makes the van more spritely to drive and better fuel economy too

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Remap

 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Remap

ECU Remapped 06/12/2014
Gain 22BHp 35Nm 
When you have 385Bhp under your right foot does 22 Bhp make that much difference you would think not but you would be wrong – by sharpening up the throttle and tuning the engine the car is far more responsive to drive feels a whole lot livelier – its all about teh drivability on these cars and now this one drives just like you would want it to 

Renault Traffic 1.9 CDTi Remap

Renault Traffic 1.9 CDTi Remap

ECU Remapped 10/12/2014
Gain 38Bhp 75Nm
Same engine box and ecu in the Traffic as in Vauxhall Vivaro and Nissan Primstar – Its a oldish EDC15 that reads and writes easily via the OBD port. Great gains as well as better fuel economy – Not tha should be a surprise look how many BT Open Reach Vivaros are out there on the road that have benefitted from the same tuning 

Ford Transit 2.2 TDCi 85PS Remap

Ford Transit 2.2 TDCi 85PS Remap

ECU Remapped 10/12/2014
Gain 35Bhp 65Nm 
The mk7 Transits all use the same Visteon ECU which is another OBD remap – This 85PS version is the lowest power that Ford gave to the Tranny and it really couldn’t pull you out of bed in the morning.
I would say a remap on one of these is essential especially if you put any weight in the back of it 
Its much better now, sharper, more responsive and more mpg – it even goes up hills with a degree of ease

Ford Mondeo ST TDCi Remap

Ford Mondeo ST TDCi Remap

ECU Remapped 13/12/2014
Gain 30Bhp 60Nm
This Blue Oval was in really nice condition and had teh ST half leather interior and all the ST Goodies 
With only 67000 miles its ripe for tuning and in 45 minutes we have added more power better throttle response and improved fuel economy 
What a great Christmas present for James from his sons 

VW Golf R32 Remap

VW Golf R32 Remap

ECU Remapped 15/12/2014
Gain 22Bhp 35Nm
This 2006 Golf R32 was in superb condition – The R32s normally are well cared for by their owners as they are a fine vehicle – Fitted with the DSG gearbox the gains look fairly small but its all about throttle response and drivability which are nicely improved after a remap

BMW 335i Remap

BMW 335i Remap

ECU Remapped 18/12/2014
Gain 55Bhp 80Nm 
Are our files for the 335i any good – well these quoted figures are the minimum we would expect and we have seen as much as 78bhp from low milage ones so yes we can certainly achieve the power – This is the second 335i this customer has had after the first visited the wrong side of a hedge and his first call was to us to get round and give it our little tweek – It did take 3 hours as no driver was available for this specific s/w which is strange after mapping literally hundreds on these we can still find a new version – but once a driver was created job went as smoothly as usual 

2014 Land Rover Defender Remap

2014 Land Rover Defender Remap

ECU Remapped 20/12/2014
Gain 38Bhp 70Nm 
I love these cars – surely the slowest depreciating vehicle available bar classics – utilitarian yet with the right options more than comfortable enough and if things break or need changing a basic tool set will get things sorted – what are Land Rover thinking about discontinuing the model – FOOLS – So grab one while you still can 
They are a bit underpowered though but you know we can sort that out in a couple of hours, giving the power and torque you would really want 

Mazda 6 2.0 Remap

Mazda 6 2.0 Remap

ECU Remapped 27/12/2014
Another car that has come to us with problems – This customer had had the DPF and Cat removed previously on the car but the EML and DPF lights were still on and the “tuner” who had done the work was no longer answering his phone.
Fortunately we can sort this out – replace the mod file on the car with original software – reset oil, ash and dpf settings and modify with professional DPF delete software – problem solved – while the car should no longer be driven on the road with no DPF and CAT it now has no fault codes and no limp mode 
Why do people select a tuner with little or no experience to tune their cars is it because £150 advertised prices seems too good well guess what in most cases if it looks too good to be true it probably is 
Choose a remapping company with history expertise, and some sort of comeback if there is a problem.
FlashRemapping are a limited liability company – the software we use is ISO9001 accredited and covered by £5million underwritten insurance, we have been tuning cars full time for 7 years 
We may be a little more expensive but you pay once and the job gets done right 
CHEAP THING NO GOOD – GOOD THING NO CHEAP 

Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0T Remap

Saab 9-3 Aero 2.0T Remap

ECU Remapped 29/12/2014
Gain 35BHp 70Nm 
The 2005 Saab Aero is a bargain 210BHp in stock form and a nicely remappable Trionic t8 ecu that is quite simple to tune after the half hour read – still the write is only 5 minutes so just over an hour all in and a quick test drive to prove how icy the roads are and how quickly the wheels can now spin up – better weather will provide more fun – so back to being a bargain – how much would you want to pay for an 80k miler 2 litre turbo – just 2 bags will get you one – BARGAIN
