BMW 320D Compact Remap

BMW 320D Compact Remap 

ECU Remapped 01/03/2014
Gain 40BHp 80Nm 
When you work for Jaguar and drive their beautiful and powerful new cars all day you want the best for your own Jalopy. So choosing FlashRemapping to tune his BMW was a no-brainer – to say he was happy would be an understatment it went really well once remapped, such is the available tuning in this BMW

Peugeot 406 2.0 HDi Remap

Peugeot 406 2.0 HDi Remap 

ECU Remapped 01/03/2014
Gain 35BHp 70Nm 
Big miles on this 406 but with a mechanic owner everything was in good condition so no problem to tune it and its a big difference even compared to the “smoke box” that was previously fitted

Vauxhall Astra 1.9 cdti Remap

Vauxhall Astra 1.9 cdti Remap 

ECU Remapped 01/03/2014
Gain 38BHp 75Nm 
The 1.9 CDTi engine comes in many vehicles with differing BHPs as standard – this one was the 150BHp version so pretty powerful to start with but we can make a big difference to even the most powerful version – this one is now around the 190bhp mark and a proper diesel hot hatch

BMW E91 325D Remap

BMW 325D Remap 

ECU Remapped 03/03/2014
Gain 42BHp 90Nm 
Being a later 325d this one is fitted with the 6 cylinder engine similar to the 330d so there is a lot of scope for tuning – despite being a 27minute read from the bosch edc16 it still took under an hour to read modify and write the performance map that will give much more smoother power better throttle response and unless driven like a rental car improved fuel economy

Audi A6 2.5 TDi Remap

Audi A6 2.5 TDi Remap 

ECU Remapped 04/03/2014
Gain 45Bhp 90Nm 
There are so many differnt BHp versions of the Audis with teh 2.5 litre engine this one had a BDG engine code signifying a 163BHp version – they all tune for the same gains though and 45BHp and 90Nm is a very healthy improvement and a much better car for it

Land Rover Discovery 3 Remap

Land Rover Discovery 3 Remap

 
ECU Remapped 04/03/2014
Gain 38Bhp 85Nm 
What is that I hear you cry – its a manual stick in a Discovery diesel and cloth seats too – heavens above 
It was dark by the time i was taking the photo of this car so it didnt turn out well so I nicked this one from PistonHeads but it did look like this – Tuned up nicely though and felt a lot more responsive through the gears with plenty more grunt

Ford Fiesta 1.6 tdci Remap

Ford Fiesta 1.6 tdci Remap 

ECU Remapped 08/03/2014
Gain 30BHp 60Nm 
The Fiesta Zetec S 1.6 Tdci is an economical little hatchback with reasonable power at 90BHp but its a super car once remapped,
around town they will give a real 52mpg in stock form and with a remap 30% more power and an extra 5mpg plus. now thats something worthwhile

Ford Mondeo 2.0 Tdci 140Bhp Remap

Ford Mondeo 2.0 Tdci 140Bhp Remap 

ECU Remapped 08/03/2014
Gain 30Bhp 60Nm 
Nice gains from the Mondeo – this one being a 2007 was fitted with the Siemens 206 ecu which is great as the read process is only about 60 seconds probably as the file is only 256Kb. The write even quicker making the whole process around 40 minutes. Its certainly quicker now and more economical too.

Mini Cooper S remap

Mini Cooper S remap

ECU Remapped 10/03/2014
Gain 30Bhp 55Nm
2007 introduced the Turbo charged version of the Mini cooper S replacing the Supercharged version and this is just great for tuning as we can achieve much greater results from a turbo than the supercharger ( unless you start changing pulleywheels etc ) 
This one becomes really quick with a remap

Vauxhall Vivaro 2.0 Cdti remapping

Vauxhall Vivaro 2.0 CDTi 115 Remap 

ECU Remapped 11/03/2014
Gain 38BHp 75Nm 
The Vauxhall vivaro / Nissan primstar/ Renault traffic is a very tunable van and we have remapped a huge number of them – much better to drive and about 4 mpg better after a remap – It would be crazy not to have one tuned

Audi A5 TFSi Remap

Audi A5 1.8Tfsi Remap 

ECU Remapped 11/03/2014
Gain 40Bhp 75Nm
Thankfully this was an OBD remap – The last 4 or 5 Audis with this engine I have seen despite being pre 2010 have all had anti-tune retrospectively fitted so this was a relief that we didn’t have to remove the ecu and the whole process to add 40Bhp took just 45 minutes – its certainly a lot faster car now and his Forge dump valve makes a great noise – not sure how long that would take to annoy me tho but everyone to their own

BMW 320D E90 Remap

BMW 320D E90 Remap 

ECU Remapped 12/03/2014
Gain 40bhp 80Nm
after march 2009 these edc17 ecus are a bench tune – not a big deal but does take a bit longer to remove and open the ecu but the results are pretty spectacular. more power throughout the rev range, better throttle response and more mpg unless you drive like a complete maniac

VW Passat B5.5 1.9 TDi Remap

VW Passat B5.5 1.9 TDi Remap 

ECU Remapped 13/03/2014
Gain 38BHp 75Nm 
An uneventful car to remap you would think but this turned into a personal mission MAN vs CAR 
The car would not read via the diagnostic port and being an edc15 I didn’t particularly want to open the ecu and desolder the chip – I was sure there was an easier way – so concocting a loom I removed the ecu and connected the loom to the ecu and the kess taking power from the car battery – bingo read – remap and write back to the ecu all fine – test drive was great a nice improvment in power and smoothness but the Passat had one last spanner to throw in the works a MIL illuminated on the dash with a message EMMISSIONS WORKSHOP – plugged in VAGcom – which communicated with everything apart from the engine module so found no faults GRR plugged in Maxidias same scenario more GRRR out came the Delphi ds150e bingo straight in – 4 faults lost comms with MAF, MAP, Crankcase angle sensor and 1 other I cant remember – cleared them and went for a longer drive – perfect 
In the battle MAN vs CAR Im please to say MAN wins

Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2 Di-D Remap

Mitsubishi Shogun 3.2 Di-D Remap 

ECU Remapped 13/03/2014
Gain 40 Bhp 75Nm 
We are one of only a very few tuners who can remap this 2013 Shogun via the diagnostic port – It save a massive amount of time and effort removing the ecu opening it up and soldering the minuscule pins on the denso ecu – Nice gains and improved economy – which will improve further once those canoes are removed from the roof

BMW 530D Remap

BMW 530D Remap

ECU Remapped 17/03/2014
Gain 42BHp 90Nm 
This one was a manual which is certainly rarer than the auto but gains still the big Bimmer is now swifter more responsive and improved fuel economy

Audi A5 2.0TDi Quattro Remap

Audi A5 2.0TDi Quattro Remap 

ECU Remapped 22/03/2014
Gain 35BHp 70Nm
This is a blend remap that will improve response, performance and that all important fuel economy – Being a 2010 vehicle it requires a bench tune the most difficult part of which is removing the security bolts from the cage around the ecu plugs – but we have done so many of these now the whole job took under 2 hours and the results well worth the effort

BMW Z4 2.0i Remap

BMW Z4 2.0i Remap 

ECU Remapped 22/03/2014
Gain 15Bhp 18Nm 
All 4 cylinder petrol BMW s are as flat as you can imagine in teh 1700-2100 rpm range – so while the top end bhp is not massively improved ( but still noticable) its worth tuning them to improve this low down area – this was no different with sharper response

VW Golf MK7 1.6 TDi Tuning

VW Golf MK7 1.6 TDi Tuning 

Engine Tuned 24/03/2014 
Gain 22Bhp 50Nm 
The Mk7 golf has moved away from using the unlockable Siemens ecu back to Bosch but unfortunately the edc17c64 ecu is not tunable as yet – but our customers dont want to wait so we have a very special tuning module that fits to the commn rail sensor . crankcase angle sensor and boost sensor that gives amazing results – they fit very easily this one taking 10 minutes including tidying up the wiring and results are instant 

BMW 535D Remap

BMW 535D Remap 

ECU Remapped 26/03/2014
Gain 55BHp 130Nm 
Bid diesel with big power that is now even bigger – this was the 272BHp version on an 07 reg so one of the last before the stock power was upped – tuning makes a massive difference to the power delivery and will help on the mpg as well unless driven on the edge

VW Transporter T5 1.9 84 Remap

VW Transporter T5 1.9 84 Remap 

ECU Remapped 27/03/2014
Gain 38BHp 75Nm 
This is one of the last of teh t5s before the facelift and change to 2.0 litre engines – so it can still be mapped via the diagnostic port.
The 84BHp is the lowest power version available and couldn’t pull the skin off a rice pudding – Its a huge amount better once remapped

Mitsubishi Evo x fq 300 Remap

Mitsubishi Evo x fq 300 Remap 

ECU Remapped 27/03/2014
Gain 40 BHp 75Nm 
Can you see it – I know its trikky being in camouflage but you certainly know it when its driving. It is dam quick – de catted, forge dump vale and upgraded air filter this now has a stage 2 map ( with lambda delete – will be about 370 Bhp – Yum Yum

VW Golf GTi 2.0 Tfsi 197 Remap

 VW Golf GTi 2.0 Tfsi 197 Remap

ECU Remapped 27/03/2014
Gain 45 BHp 90Nm 
These Golf, actually anything with the 2.0 litre Tfsi engine go really well once remapped – This one was a DSG auto but still a whole lot quicker and with better throttle response

 

BMW 135I Twin Power Turbo Remap

BMW 135I Twin Power Turbo Remap 

FR Tuning Module fitted 27/03/2014
Gain 76Bhp 60Nm
WOWZER – Its quick – This car is a 13 plate and although its still an E82 its engine and ECU are F series – I found this out after taking the ecu out – Very hard as its under the inlet manifold only to find this particular Bosch MEVD17 has not yet been cracked – Still we have a way to improve things the new FR tuning module connects to the Boost sensor, MAP sensor and crankcase angle sensor – the latter being an absolute git to get to and unplug – still well worth the time spent wrestling with it – the traction control light is now extremely easy to illuminate

 

BMW 525D E60 Remap

 BMW 525D E60 Remap 

ECU Remapped 28/03/2014
Gain 42BHp 90Nm 
The 5 Series E60 BMW is a massively solid car – this one had the 2.5 litre engine so 177Bhp and a slush box so an extra 42BHp is a much welcomed addition – a regular customer which is always nice must be the tenth car I have remapped for this group of friends

 

VW Transporter T5 1.9 TDi Remap

VW Transporter T5 1.9 TDi Remap 

ECU Remapped 31/03/2014
Gain 38BHp 75Nm 
Another one of the 84 Bhp Transporters that couldn’t pull you out of bed in the morning especially when fitted with the gigantic alloy wheels – massively improved now with nearly 50% extra Bhp –
