    Re: chipping a 1.9 tdi

    you will 'remap' and not 'rechip'

    yes it's fairly simple

    yes it makes a big difference

    no, my car still hits 40mpg with ease

    no it's perfectly safe and comes with a warranty

    costs vary

    no, you'll have to go to either jabbasport or AMD or revotek

    I can only vouch for jabba as thats who did mine, and they did a cracking job - as you can see from my signature

    Hi mate, 'remap' is basically what you refer to as chipping, we have got use the word 'chip' but these day, most cars have their ECU's remapped to gain performance as opposed to having a complete chip swapped over.

    most companys can also provide a delivery off this system, they send it too you, plug it in your diagnosic port, press save then send it back. they then re-map the ecu program and send it back again, plug it and an upload it hey presto 40-50bhp and 40lb/ft.

    or if you can do with out your can unclip the ecu send it 2 them and they will send it back done!!

    Re: chipping a 1.9 tdi

    If you don't want the hassle of remapping the ECU, you could get a plug in tunit box which just plugs into the injector loom and only effects the fueling. This method gives you a reasonable amount of performance increase, but in general, not as good as a full blown remap which changes the turbo pressure aswell as the fuelling. I have run one of these for the past 12 months and 20K miles on my Passat 1.9 Tdi PD with no problems, apart from going into limp mode once, which was cured by switching the engine off and back on. Drawback is lotta exhaust smoke when giving it some.

    Me to Jojo ive got an A3 130TDi sport with a tunit box i think its about 170-180 but better torque, and yes it does smoke more as a bird found out in her A4 2.4 cab. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_roll.gif[/img] but i'b waiting for the car to run out of warranty before i ditch the box and get a remap.
