new to all this carry on !!
Its basically a modern term for engine tuning, your vehicles ECU is uploaded with a new program that increases fueling and boost therefore increasing power/bhp produced. Log onto wwwsuperchips.com for more info or any of their major competitors for example Revo.
ok cheers ! ive ordered a 2.0 TDI 170bhp ! would it make much difference ya think ? i want the most power available lol
You'll have a smile on your face everytime you drive the car after a remap, here's a little more info for the map for your car...
cheers mate !
does it make a better noise as well ?
Doesn't really change the noise much to be honest!
So do these re-maps make a big difference to the 2.0T SE (220bhp). Its a FWD i've got?
remaps make the biggest difference on turbo cars. The new mk2 tt with its 2l fsi engine you can usually see up to 50bhp more from it. You will DEFINATELY notice the remap ! the car will pull harder, rev quicker, and generally be more responsive. My S4 went from 265bhp to 315bhp as this has 2 turbos !
naturally aspirated cars you can usually see around 15bhp more, but wont be as noticable.
Do it, you wont be disappointed
so it will make a decent difference to a 2.0 tdi 170 ?
diesel respond differently than petrol engines. With diesels its all about torque. Thats the low down grunt. you'll probably see a good 60lbs/ft of torque and 30bhp.
It will make a big difference to a Diesel and is very noticeable. Damian at DPM did mine and instantly the throttle is so much more responsive. I have found the biggest difference to be the fact it revs better. It picks up quicker and doesn't run out of steam until its past the red line.
And now that I'm finally calming down, I'm seeing improved fuel economy too.
What more do you want?
might have to start saving some extre pennies then lol. Should really concentrate on buying a house, but hey, im still a young lad, and its all about cars and power ! lol
cheers guys for the info
Go for it you won't regret it, best value pound for pound you'll spend on your car
