FlashRemapping, October 2013

BMW E46 330Ci ECU Remapping

BMW E46 330Ci ECU Remapping

Ecu Remapped 03/10/2013

Gain 22BHp 30Nm

The 6 Cylinder BMW engine is a pretty smooth one and well respected amongst true enthusiasts – It can be improved though more power and even smoother once we have tuned the ecu

Mercedes cls 320Cdi ECU Remapping

Mercedes CLS320 cdi Remap


ECU Remapped 05/10/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
I love the Mercedes CLS – Such a sleek shape and with the 3 litre diesel engine makes financial sense too – but why not get some improved performance and economy – that’s what we do – better than the smoke box that was previously fitted to this vehicle

BMW 325D E93 ECU Remapping

BMW E93 325D 197 Remap


ECU Remapped 05/10/2013
Gain 35Bhp 75Nm Blend Remap
The 197 BHp version of this vehicle has the 3 litre engine but still the edc16 ecu that can be remapped via the OBD port – The 204 Bhp version from 2010 onwards needs a bench tune – the customer was looking for smoother power and improved economy – the fantastic roof mechanism and extra body strengthening add a lot of weight to the 3 series so we went for a mid range map rather than a blue optimize as this will be perfect for smooth extra power with improved economy too

Porsche 996 Carrera Remap

Porsche 996 Carrera Remap


ECU Remapped 07/10/2013
Gain 21BHp 35Nm
Ok it doesn’t sound like a big gain but the drivability is massively improved – better throttle response and mid range torque make it easier to live with now its had the FlashRemapping treatment

VW Touareg 2.5 TDi Remap

VW Touareg 2.5 TDi Remap


ECU Remapped 07/10/2013
Gain 38Bhp 90Nm
Another ToeRag gets the FlashRemapping tune – nice power gains here – the 178Bhp in stock form is not enough for the hefty VW the tune is almost necessity

BMW E46 330CD Remap

BMW E46 330CD Remap


ECU Remapped 07/10/2013
Gain 42BHp 90Nm
Bmw make a nice coupe and these e46 versions are still a good looking car and can do massive mileage as the six cylinder engine is never stressed – all the better for tuning now with better throttle response more power and improved mpg

BMW 320D E46 Remap

BMW 320D E46 Remap


ECU Remapped 07/10/2013
Gian 40BHp 80Nm
Always good gains from these 4 cylinder diesel bmws and this one was no exception and with eth edc16 ecu makes our job very easy too

BMW E90 330D Remap and DPF Delete

BMW E90 330D Remap and DPF Delete


ECU Remapped 08/10/2013
Gain 40 BHp 80Nm
Another London vehicle where the DPF has not had the chance to regenerate blocking it solid – remove the dpf filter remap and delete the dpf strings and Bobs you uncle – not more disco lights on the dash more power and better economy

Subaru Hawkeye 2.5 WRX Remap

Subaru Hawkeye 2.5 WRX Remap


ECU Remapped 09/10/2013
Gain 30BHp peak ( 45 bhp in rev range)
55Nm peak (80Nm in rev range )
This was a totally stock wrx wagon which is quite rare that they are unmolested nowadays and with just 44k miles – the aim of our remapping on these vehicles is to widen the power range to make them more drivable – so while they gain 30bhp 55Nm at peak through the rev range it will gain 45BHp and 80Nm so not so often will Andy get caught in the wrong gear with little power

Citroen DS3 Remapping

Citroen DS3 1.6 Thp ECU Remap

ECU Remapped 11/10/2013

Gain 50Bhp 71Nm

Another DS3 Remapped and we also had time to test out our new petrol tuning box which gave a nice 25BHp gain on this vehicle which may be of interest to those overseas customers who cannot get to us for tuning – Its less power than a full remap but still gives your car that little edge

Kia Sorento 2.5 CRDi Remap

Kia Sorento 2.5 CRDi Remap


ECU Remapped 12/10/2013
Gain 35Bhp 70Nm
Ivan uses his Kia for towing a large caravan so we opted for the performance remap which will help fuel economy and towing ability – Immediately more responsive the remap has really lifted this 4WD

Audi A4 1.8T Quattro 163 Remap

Audi A4 1.8T Quattro 163 Remap


ECU Remapped 13/10/2013
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
Being a Quatro the drivetrain loss on these Audis is very high – well over 20% so 163Bhp in stock form is not really enough – A remap makes all the difference to the drive

BMW 318i ECU Remap

BMW 318i ECU Remap


ECU Remapped 14/10/2013
Gain 17Bhp 24Nm
Attention all 4 Cylinder BMW Petrol drivers – tuning is not all about the peak BHP gains – despite top end improving 17BHp and 24Nm the real difference is is that very flat area between 1700-2100 RPM where these cars just do not respond until we have had our hands on them for a couple of hours that is

Vauxhall Astra J 1.6 Remap

Vauxhall Astra J 1.6 Remap


ECU Remapped 14/10/2013
Gain 10BHp 17Nm
This is the first 1.6 petrol Asta J we have remapped and it did cause a bit of bother – 75Minutes to read the ecu then on writing you have to warm up the engine to 70+ deg and realign the throttle bodies so it does take a good few hours but the reward is a sharper throttle responsive and crisper drive

Renault Traffic 1.9dci 100 Remap

Renault Traffic 1.9dci 100 Remap


ECU Remapped 15/10/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
Ken uses his traffic for fishing trips and towing so needed a bit more torque and this one responded well as its low mileage has very little wear. It will also improve the fuel economy too

Honda CR-V 2.2 I-cdti Remap

Honda CR-V 2.2 I-cdti Remap


ECU Remapped 15/10/2013
Gain 38Bhp 75Nm
The 2.2 litre Honda Diesel engine is very tuneable giving a much freer revving feel once tuned. In fact we could go a lot further with the tuning but the clutches are the weakest point of the drivetrain here and to avoid costly clutch changes this is a nice safe level of tuning

Mercedes Sprinter 210 remap and dpf delete

Library Photo
Mercedes Sprinter 210 remap and dpf delete


Gain 35BHp 70Nm ( blend)
ECU Remapped 15/10/2013
The swb 210 sprinter already looks like it has been in an accident and this one actually had
While insurances were settling some kind hearted person nicked the CAT and DPF from it – Mercedes quote £2100 to replace – our idea £300 bypass pipe and remap including dpf delete – it now goes better – no dpf problems – just one last bit to sort there is still a light on for ” CAT temp sensor” so we need to put a resistor in the plug or worst case scenario buy a sensor from Mercedes, drill a hole in the exhaust and weld a nut on and screw the new sensor – job done

Jeep Commander 3.0 crd Remap

Jeep Commander 3.0 crd Remap


ECU Remapped 15/10/2013
Gain 35BHp 85Nm
Sorry for library photo it was dark when the car arrived and its a shame because this one looked great with big wheels in black it was a “mini hummer” the remap tool 40 minutes in total and very impressive gains  – Marko took it for a quick test drive and commented ” you’ve made it into an animal – faster and smoother I can hardly feel the gear changes” we do aim to please

Mercedes sl500 Clone ecu

Mercedes sl500 Clone ecu


What do you do when your sl500 ecu bricks it and you are in Rwanda with the car – answer send the ecu to us but a replacement from ebay in usa and send that to us – we can then clone the old data and immobiliser to the new unit send it back and away you go – Oh I love soldering chips

Mercedes S320Cdi Remap

Mercedes S320Cdi Remap


ECU Remapped 16/10/2013
Gain 40BHp 90Nm
Big gains for the big Merc and smoother power delivery as well – Not that this wasn’t a smooth barge to begin with but this remap also improves fuel consumption also. You CAN have your cake and eat it (No jokes about my waistline please)

Mercedes CLS 320Cdi Remap

Mercedes CLS 320Cdi Remap


ECU Remapped 16/10/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
The CLS is later than the S class we remapped earlier and has 22Bp more in stock form so the gains are a little smaller but still very worthwhile – amazingly despite being a 2008 model that is facelifted it was still a K-Line reads rather than CANBUS which was a bit of a surprise but no problems and about an hours worth of tuning the Merc is a lot better drive

BMW 330CD 204 Remap

BMW 330CD 204 Remap


ECU Remapped 16/10/2013
Gain 42BHp 90Nm
3 litre BMW diesel engine with loads of smooth power and a convertible its a great combination and now its remapped its quite a beast and still great mpg

Peugeot 406 2.0 HDi 110 Remap

Peugeot 406 2.0 HDi 110 Remap


ECU Remapped 17/10/2013
Gain 25BHp 55Nm
Some people will travel a long way to have a good remap – this customer came from France where you cannot get a car remapped – The vehicle had reasonable mileage 73k, and although automatic still felt a lot sharper after we had worked our magic and mpg improvement too – Jut Alores

Audi Q7 3.0 TDi Remap

Audi Q7 3.0 TDi Remap


ECU Remapped 17/10/2013
Gain 50BHp 110Nm
Thank you very much Alientech for adding lots of warnings on the protocol for this EDC17 ecu – telling me I have to do it on the bench – you were wrong – I know its a tri-core ecu but the protected ecus are from march 2009 onwards this 57 plate did not have it although the warnings did make me concerned- still either way the big 4WD is now more powerful smoother and with added economy

Vauxhall Astra VXR Remap

Vauxhall Astra VXR Remap


ECU Remapped 19/10/2013
Gain 35BHp 70Nm
Its been a while since I remapped a VXR – don’t know why cars seem to go in phases. They are brutal on under steer but nothing that isn’t predictable so no problem adding a few more ponies and smoother power delivery

Audi a4 2.0 tdi 140 Remap

Audi A4 2.0 TDi 140 Remap

ECU Remapped 19/10/2013

Gain 40Bhp 80Nm

The 2.0 tdi 140bhp engine is used in pretty much all mid sized upward VAG group cars and is very tuneable – better mpg more power and a much smoother delivery

Vauxhall Signum 1.9 cdti 120 Remap

Vauxhall Signum 1.9 cdti 120 Remap


ECU Remapped 20/10/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
with a 90 mile each way commute this customer wanted more power and better mpg – he has also replaced the egr 3 times in the last year so along with our remap which will improve the power and economy we have deleted the egr function – he just needs to but a blanking plate in the egr and that will be the end of his problems with that

Land Rover Discovery TDV6 Remap

Land Rover Discovery TDV6 Remap


ECU Remapped 20/10/2013
Gain 38BHp 95Nm
188Bhp in stock form sounds OK but the big Disco is a heavy old beast and aerodynamics were definitely not a big part for the designers so a remap really helps the Landie get along much much better – he also had a eml light on due to coolant level being low, yet is was topped right up – we have cleared the code and hopefully it wont come back – if it does its probably only a sensor

Chrysler 300c 3.0crd Remap

Chrysler 300c 3.0crd Remap


ECU Remapped 20/10/2013
Gain 42BHp 90Nm
With Gangster looks the 300c is a brute of a car and with the 3.0 litre Mercedes engine its going to be pretty reliable too and economy not too bad – It does need however a bit of a tweek to keep up with the looks – fortunately that’s no problem for us the Mercedes lump is very tuneable giving performance and economy gains

Land Rover Discovery TD5 Remap

Land Rover Discovery TD5 Remap


ECU Remapped 21/10/2013
Gain 35BHp 70Nm
Trevor has not had a moments problems with this TD5 – there are many out there that complain theirs is unreliable but this is obviously a good one. so with nice power gains and better economy available a remap is a great addition

Land Rover Discovery 4 SDV6 3.0 Remap

Land Rover Discovery 4 SDV6 3.0 Remap


ECU Remapped 21/10/2013
Gain 30BHp 60Nm
Proper bit of tuning here – ecu out and on the bench just to connect to 1 boot pin – the rest of the wires connected to the ecu the same as are connected to the obd plug and away we go – nice gains and better throttle response – the pull from 20-40mph is very much improved

VW Golf 1.9 TDi 105 Remap

VW Golf 1.9 TDi 105 Remap


ECU Remapped 22/10/2013
Gain 33BHp 65Nm ( Blend)
Looking to achieve more power and improved mpg we opted for a blend remap here which will give a better and more responsive drive but also improve fuel economy – best of both worlds

Audi A3 2.0 TDi 170 Remap

Audi A3 2.0 TDi 170 Remap


ECU Remapped 24/10/2013
Gain 25BHp 55Nm ( Blue Optimize)
Chris has owned his Audi from new and now with just under 90K was looking to pep her up a bit – the 170bhp version of the 2.0 tdi has a Siemens ecu rather than the 140s Bosch unit and also has had an injector change under recall so there is scope to improve performance and economy even though it has the dsg gearbox the remap made a nice difference to throttle response and power and this will also improve mpg by up to 15%   ding dong

BMW E70 X5 3.0X-Drive Remap

BMW E70 X5 3.0X-Drive Remap


ECU Remapped 24/10/2013
Gain 42BHp 90Nm
2010 BMW X5 you may think is a bench tune and when they are the 245bhp version they certainly are but the last of the 235bhp ones have the Bosch edc16 ecu that we can tune via the OBD port which makes life a lot easier so just 1 hour to add significant BHP and Torque and a much nicer vehicle

BMW 635D Remap

BMW 635D Remap


ECU Remapped 28/10/2013
Gain 55Bhp 130Nm
Another of the twin charged 3 litre BMWs and another that didn’t fail to disappoint – shame the roads were wet as this spins up pretty quickly on wet surfaces but is a massively better car now

BMW 535D M SPORT Remap and DPF Delete

BMW 535D M SPORT Remap and DPF Delete


ECU Remapped 30/10/2013
Gain 55Bhp 130Nm
Another turbo diesel with a blocked DPF – best bet is to remove it and save future problems and why not remap it as well at the same time

BMW E46 320d Remap

BMW E46 320d Remap


ECU Remapped 30/10/2013
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
Even with an automatic box the performance difference is outstanding better off the line and 2500-3000 rpm its really lively and with better mpg too

Range Rover TDV8 Remap

Range Rover TDV8 Remap


ECU Remapped 30/10/2011
Gain 68BHp
Yes you read that right 68BHp 160Nm on top of the existing 267bhp that makes the Range Rover sport into quite a beast – more powerful, smoother, and more mpg   as well

Range Rover Sport TDV8 Remap

Range Rover Sport TDV8 Remap

Range rover sport number two for the day and with these gains who wouldn’t want it remapped

Range Rover Sport TDV8 Remap

Range Rover Sport TDV8 Remap


ECU Remapped 31/10/2013
