    Another Remap Question - Black Smoke?

    Hi,

    I previously had an A3 2.0TDI PD 140, had it remapped by Shark Performance. The remap was great however there was always black smoke coming out the back when I accelerated fast.

    I now have a A4 2.0TDI 143 CR, if I get it remapped do you think the same thing would happen? Anyone else had this problem?

    Also, any recommendations on where to get the remap from?

    Thanks

    my father got his 2010 sline 2.0tdi remapped to 185bhp bu auto-tune.co.uk in northern ireland here and it didnt smoke at all. he then changed car for 2011 2.0tdi black edition and they put it to 190bhp and it hasnt smoked at all and the power and torque is unreal.

    The b7 where bad engine and turbos. They where prone to smokeyness...

    Thanks...I was going to get my remap done at Shark Performance, however there is a long wait and I want to get things done sooner.

    Can anybody recommend a good company that can remap around the MK area?

    I was also thinking about Bluefin, any comments on this would also be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
