Hi all

I’ve recently purchased a 2014 A6 3.0 bitdi cr (313ps) and am looking for a recommended remapping provider.
In the past I have used Superchips with their Bluefin handheld to remap my previous A4 and have generally been pleased with the results.

Currently Superchips are quoting the following power/torque gains for my A6:
Specs Original/Increase
Horse Power 308 bhp + 41 bhp
Torque 650 nm + 116 nm

Has anyone had a more favourable experience with another company?
Thanks in advance.

I have a TDI tuning box on my bitdi and claimed figures are 363ps and 722nm torque.

Car in transformed with it turned up to max. Highly recommend

Good luck

Highly recommend Rick @ Unicorn Motorsport in Stockport, he'll do a custom map with Dyno time.

My BiTDi made 362ps and 812nm with standard hardware on his set of very conservative rollers. He leaves all safety features enabled (e.g. exhaust temp sensors) and even has the ability to maintain an original checksum on the flash counter of the ECU.

Thankyou for your suggestions.
I’m located in Crewe and have come across a company called More BHP also located in Crewe.
They have a 4wheel drive rolling road setup and provide bespoke remaps so I may give them a try.

Your money & choice, I have nothing to say good or bad about More BHP, but bear in mind, Rick @ Unicorn in Stockport would do you a live/custom map for your car on their 4WD rollers for sensible money - and I can highly recommend his work

Hi Ian
I'm currently in contact with Unicorn about remapping my motor.
The first reply from Chloe confirmed the price below:

Good afternoon David.
Custom software for your vehicle is £499 in vat. Dyno time and printout are included.
We would expect to see 350+bhp.
Fuel economy should improve, it is however, difficult to put figures to this due to the many variable factors that contribute.
Kind regards,
Chloe

The second reply presumably from Rick also confirmed the following:

Hi Dave.

We actually remap the gearbox on these. At the moment it’s free of charge as based around the torque management so that if doesn’t hold back the engine. We will be charging but as the gearbox software is fairly new we want a few cars out in the wild.

The engine software is completely bespoke. The car will do many dyno runs while it is being fine tuned.

I'm seriously thinking about going ahead with this work as they seem to be very knowledgeable about their work.

Dave

Hi guys I own a a7 bitdi 2014 it's got 313bhp from audi. I was looking at remap too but I wanted to change the exauset 1st to 3" with down pipe & no restrictions. Spoke to company called darkside development they quoted me 400+Vat of the remap & about £1000 for exauset . Dose anyone have any experience with them?

I wouldn't recommend Darkside for mapping. £1000 for an exhaust sounds awfully expensive.
@bobby singh is very good with these engines.

Unless you custom tune these you can not get the best out of them.
£500 is cheap to be honest, but then again 350hp is weak.
You have to change a sensor to get make it safe so that the ECU operates within limits and then 400hp is on the cards.

Cheers

If you want the proper tuning go to these guys. https://www.facebook.com/JDEngineering.nl/
The rest are Mickey Mouse.

Forget the exhaust @£1000 you don't need it.

Hi thanks for the advice to everyone that replied, I am very interested but was just wondering if you or anyone you know had any work done from JD engineering & how helpful they found them because I'm a bit of noob lol

Will look forward to seeing the dyno sheet! Just found out that he is now able to do some tweaking to the ZF box, so will be trying to get in to get a TCU map - recently had the oil & filters changed in the gearbox, so this should hopefully get it back to OEM+ !

@Gazwould LOL

@S7_2EYA - do some research before you drive to Holland to get any work done. The claimed figures can not be obtained with safe egt's - a friend of mine put a JD tuned car on his dyno and it made 380hp with a claimed 420hp.

Always get confirmed figures from independent dyno.
Hows that A4 doing Bobby still claiming it does 0-60 in 3.8 Secs :yahoo::hubbahubba:. Amazing - fantastic. :rock:

So I've got the car booked in with darkside in the morning for full exauset £2053 & they want £540 for remap. I also went to see Rick at unicorn today very nice guy, I turned up without a appointment but he still spent about 20min with me explaining evry thing. He wants £595 for remap plus he will map the gearbox. I'm thinking to go with Rick but want to meet the guys at DarkSide first before I decide.

Personally I would go with Rick any day over Darkside to tune the car. Having the gearbox done as well is the icing on the cake

I'm with Desertstorm on this one; although I haven't used him personally, I've only ever heard good things about Rick :)

The fact you were able to rock up without an appointment and he spent time talking to you shows that he cares about you as a customer :)
