VW Caddy 1.9 TDi 104 Remap

VW Caddy 1.9 TDi 104 Remap

ECU Remapped 04/09/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
There are thousands of VW Caddys on our roads, Plumbers, Builders, Plasterers, Chippies ever ECU Remappers and they are so strong and reliable – This one was from a Loft Company and was fitted with air con and leccy windows the lucky sod – and now its brimming with extra power and improved economy

BMW 320D 163 Auto Remap

BMW 320D 163 Auto Remap

ECU Remapped 06/09/2013
Gain 54BHp 95Nm
The pre 07 BMWs with 163Bhp are very very tuneable – ever since we were asked to do one for Redline magazine we took a fresh look at the car and gained even more safe power – not only is it now so much faster than stock its also a lot smoother

Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Remap

Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Remap

ECU Remapped 06/09/2013
Gain 10BHp 15Nm
Not massive gains here but with only 115BHp in stock for everything helps – with sharper throttle response its definitely noticeable improvement

VW Crafter 2.5 136 Remap

VW Crafter 2.5 136 Remap

ECU Remapped 08/09/2013
Gain 38Bhp 85Nm
There was me expecting an easy OBD remap on this 2010 crafter but as it turned out it had the later edc17cp20 ecu usually not seen till 2011 but this is no problem – remove the security bolts on the ecu cage and remove the ecu and tune it on the bench – all done in 2 hours and now the van is much smoother and more powerful

BMW 535D E60 Remap and DPF delete

BMW 535D E60 Remap and DPF delete

ECU Remapped 09/09/2013
Gain 55BHP 130Nm
2008 vehicle with strong mileage but in great condition has come up with the usual blocked dpf – probably caused by a faulty pressure sensor which we also changed but we have removed the dpf leaving the cat in place – the dpf was badly blocked you couldn’t see any light through it at all – now mapped as well it goes like stink

BMW 318D Remap

BMW 318D Remap

ECU Remapped 10/09/2013 Blue Optimize
Gain 28Bhp 55Nm
Fuel economy is very important now adays that’s why the Blue Optimize remap is so popular 10-15% fuel savings are about the norm – even better when you start with an economical vehicle like this in the first place

Volvo C70 2.0D Remap

Volvo C70 2.0D Remap

DPF Deleted 10/09/2013
The Siemens 803a ECU in a 2.0d Volvo cannot be tuned via the diagnostic port – like it can in Fords and Peugeots so a bench tune is required – Physically removal of the element in the DPF is also required but no more problems and having to drive up and down the motorway to make it regenerate

BMW E46 330D Remap

BMW E46 330D Remap

ECU Remapped 11/09/2013
Gain 42Bhp 90Nm
These early 330ds are becoming pretty cheap now but if regularly serviced can last and last and while 184bhp is good 226 is even better

BMW 530D E60 Remap

BMW 530D E60 Remap

ECU Remapped 12/09/2013
Gain 42BHp 90Nm
Another 3 litre diesel BMW – and why not – they tune so well give great performance gains and unless you “drive it like you stole it” improvements in fuel economy too – hooray for German engineering

Mercedes ML350CDi Blue Efficiency Remap

Mercedes ML350Cdi BlueEfficiency Remap

ECU Remapped 14/09/2013
Gain 40Bhp 80Nm
When you have young children with the prams and paraphernalia that goes with them a 4×4 is a good solution with a wide opening boot and plenty of room in the back for kiddie seats – 231Bhp is a fair amount in stock form but the ML is big, heavy and not exactly aerodynamic so a performance tune gives it a better drive – and spending all that money on a family vehicle – this give something for Daddy too

alfa romeo gtv remap

Alfa Romeo GTV Remap

ECU Remapped 16/09/2013
Gain 15Bhp 19Nm
fitted with the first version of the MED ecu the 7.1.1 this is a bench tune (BDM) but pretty straight forward – nice gains make it a fair bit more sporty

Mercedes Sprinter 906 311cdi Remap

Mercedes Sprinter 906 311cdi Remap

ECU Remapped 16/09/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
The 311 Sprinter is massive – would make a nice motorhome – and 109bhp is not enough especially once its carry a bit of weight so a performance map is the way to go – lots better in every gear and all through the rev range   – like a 315 now

Vauxhall Astra Van 1.7 Cdti Remap

Vauxhall Astra Van 1.7 Cdti Remap

ECU Remapped 17/09/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
The astravan is a useful tool for many workmen but 101 bhp is pretty lame considering what the van can be – big power increase makes this van a lot quicker with no detriment to fuel economy unless you drive it flat out everywhere

VW Golf GT Tdi 140 Remap

VW Golf GT Tdi 140 Remap

ECU Remapped 19/09/2013
Gain 40Bhp 80Nm
We have remapped many of these Golfs and they always go well – much more sporty with better throttle response and if driven anywhere near sensibly will give more mpg too

BMW 530D Manual Remap

BMW 530D Manual Remap

ECU Remapped 19/09/2013
Gain 42Bhp 90Nm
Again a very popular car to tune and I seem to have done a few of these recently all with great results

Renault Traffic 1.9 dci 100 Remap

ECU Remapped 21/09/2013
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
100 Bhp in a mid size van full of plumbing equipment is about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike – 40minutes of tapping on the old laptop and now we have a van worth driving – So if you are in North London and need a plumber fast you know MR YET  will get there quickest

Audi A4 2.0TDi ECU Remap and EGR Delete

Audi A4 2.0TDi ECU Remap and EGR Delete

ECU Remapped 23/09/2013
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
Every day is a school day in the tuning world – we are always learning – this car is a 2005/05 so Bosch edc16 ecu that should read under the k-line option but no – wake up error- how strange but it did read and write correctly under Canbus which wasn’t introduced till late 2006 – so this car must have had an ecu update at some point in its life – still its a dam sight better now more usable power all through the rev range and with legendry VAG build quality will probably still be here for many years yet

Vauxhall Vivaro 2.0 cdti remap

Vauxhall Vivaro 2.0 cdti remap

Ecu remapped 24/09/2013
Gain 38Bhp  75Nm
There cannot be anyone in the world more experienced in remapping Vauxhall Vivaros
that’s why we get such incredible results great power gains – much nicer to drive and when they take £120 of diesel a time you want that to last longer than it does – well that’s what we have done

BMW 330D Auto E46 Remap

BMW 330D Auto E46 Remap

ECU Remapped 27/09/2013
Gain 42Bhp 90Nm
We have remapped a number of these E46s recently and it surprises me how well they wear their age and mileage  – this one had just topped the 100k mark but drove beautifully in stock form and even better once remapped
