    Hi all,

    For the month of October we are offering a complete drive in drive out DPF Delete and remap service. This includes careful removal of your DPF, carefully gutting and then re-welding The car is then remapped to remove DPF functionality in the ECU. Typical power output is 205bhp without the use of excessive boost levels.

    Thanks, Rick

    The remap will put more strain on the clutch. We can do the DPF delete with no torque increase if you like, and add the power in at a later date when the clutch is done for a small fee.

    Hi Jason,

    You don't have a DPF to worry about, so already have a head start. I recommend a map that tuned the AFR ratio and injection timing while leaving the turbo boost as std. This would mean no extra strain on engine/turbo at all. This would be £250.

    Thanks, Rick

    Rick,
    What performance remaps do you do for the 3.0 TDI - 233bhp....What are the performance figures increases will I see. Would it be best to delete the DPF

    From a performance and economy point of view it is always best to remove the DPF. But without removal you are looking at an extra 70Nm and 30bhp.

    Hi Jason, you are looking at 145bhp. Economy is a lot harder to quantify but is up to an extra 10%

    Will your remap by pass the EGR is well as the DPF?

    I am looking to get this done, as I really can't be bothered driving down the motorway each time the light comes on!

    I was hoping for a little more than 205bhp, hopefully without affecting the economy and levels of smoke too much?

    How long would you need the car for?

    Any idea if a new exuahst (replacing the 2nd CAT with a straight through silencer) would benefit from adjusting my Stage1 remap if the DPF has already been removed/mapped out??

    Hi mate

    I have a 56 plate 140bhp tdi and just wanted to know what power I should get with your map and cost?

    Thanks

    The injectors are pretty much on there knees at this level, and you would need to run the turbo harder. I could literally max everything out, but I don't think it's worth it. The difference is quite significant as it is and so therefore we don't believe in trying to squeeze a few more hp for the sake of reliability. Different RR's with different operators will see different power figures. What's important is how it goes on the road.

    There will be gains, but not as significant as the removal of the DPF, providing the map has been written to benefit from the DPF removal.

    Hi Simon, you are looking at 170-175hp which would be £250. You can run more, but the turbo is weak and also you may start getting clutch issues.

    Thanks, Rick

    Hi Rick, thats a fair comment and you are correct I would rather have a map that goes well on the road, rather than something that just lights up the front wheels and can't put the power down. How long would you need the car for to do the work?

    This offer is very tempting, but its come when I have had to spend a shed load on other things :(
    Would you still map the car if I gut the dpf myself? If so at what cost?

    Yes, it's a good idea to do this for sure. No more crudy intake system and no more worries about sticking valves. An extra £50 for the map or £100 of you want us to do it :)

    Thanks thats awesome Rick, found out that my V6 3.0 TDI 233ps does not have DPF :eyebrows: - so would just need a ERG Delete.

    What power gains through your experience will I see?? torque and power gains??

    It's a Tiptronic box.

    Thanks in advance...QUOTE=Rick @ Unicorn Motor Dev.;1687487]You are looking at over 290bhp :yes:

    Lucky you - no DPF worried :D

    With no DPF we should hit 290bhp plus on yours :)

    Hey Rick, I'm just about to replace a leaking intercooler on my my 2005 2.5tdi 163, EGR already blanked and no DPF and then I'll be looking at a remap. What gains, including torque would you expect?

    Also, what would be needed for the next stage. I'd be more interested in mid range/overtaking power than off the line power.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's the A6 yes? You are looking at 195 bhp, but torque goes up by 70Nm, which is where your overtaking ability is :)

    Hi, I've got a 2007 3.0TDi TDV with 233PS. I'm not too worried about the DPF, as an extra 30 PS would be plenty. I was wondering if it was possible to programme the ECU to "ignore" a worn (or disconnected) inlet manifold swirl flap, so that the engine management light did not come on. I would dearly love it if you could, as this would avoid having to shell out a fortune on new manifolds.

    Hi,

    yes this is possible but it's quite a time consuming process.
