Yesterday we remapped a range rover vouge td6 that had been remapped by a company that offer remaps in the cardiff/barry area, The vehicle’s owner asked us if we could do anything to sort out his vehicle as it had been back to this company on three occassions and he was far from happy with the overall result, poor performance and economy, At the third attempt they had got the vehicle from 14 mpg to 19 mpg, but that was pussy footing it and not driving it normally,which as standard he had 21 mpg from it, He was recommended by a friend of his to try us,When we arrived we read the vehicles map and it was so bad we had to return the vehicle to a standard setting before we could remap it with one of our custom remaps, After our remap he took it for a test drive over the same route as he had covered to get 19 mpg, he averaged 24.7 mpg on the vehicles computer and could not believe the extra performance he had and how smooth the range rover now ran, So it just goes to show there are remaps and there are remaps, We stand by our work, which is more than can be said of many out there who just want your money unfortunately.
VOLKSWAGON PASSAT CC, Fuel Savings
We recently remapped a 10 plate vw passat cc for a family member to try, he was amazed to gain around 7 mpg on a run, it was already good on fuel but it is outstanding now, He could not believe how well the car drives, and commented that the already smooth driving vehicle is now a much smoother ride, along with the increase in torque that has eliminated the slow speed judder he had when driving around the streets in a gear too high, The car now takes it all in its stride, he can now take his bad driving habits up to a different level, just hope he remembers to pay us.
We recently had a call from a customer who had been recommended by a local garage to contact us to see if we could help him, He had taken his Dpf (diesel particle filter) out of his exhaust system after it had been causing problems with the running of his vehicle, due to it becoming totally clogged up, and could no longer be regenerated to be cleaned,(One of the many problems that are caused by dpf fliters that are now fitted to most diesel vehicles as standard )After the dpf removal he continued to use his vehicle as normal only to find clouds of smoke from the exhaust followed him when he drove the vehicle, we explained to him that if a dpf filter is removed the software that controls the dpf needs to be taken out of the vehicles ecu or it still sends controling signals from the ecu to the now missing dpf filter, causing the problems he has. We told him we could sort out his smoke problem for him by removing the software from the vehicle ecu with our equipment in around 30 minutes, which we done for him, and another satisfied customer went on his way without his james bond style smoke screen behind him.
