Seat Ibiza 1.9Tdi 130BHp
ECU Remapped 01/12/2011
Gain 50BHp 100Nm
Tom has fitted a Garrett turbo from a 150BHp Pd engine and a decat 2.5 inch exhaust and drilled the air box – nice modifications but lame without a remap to tune it in.
These are estimated modifications but we will have exact once he hits the dyno next week – this car is now seriously quick for a diesel

BMW 525D E60 Estate
ECU Remapped and DPF Delete 01/12/2011
Gain 42BHp 85Nm
DPF delete and a remap will give this car a decent lift
and no more potential problems in the future which would lead to a very expensive replacement –

Land Rover Freelander 2.0 TD4
ECU Remapped 01/12/2011
Gain 32BHp 65Nm
The earlier Freelanders are a bit short of get up and go with just 110BHp stock – A FlashRemapping performance tune will certainly pick them up, now endowed with 142BHp its a lot more fun and more economical too

Citroen DS3 1.6 Thp 150BHp
ECU Remapped 02/12/2011
Gain 50BHp 71Nm
Another in the long line of Citroen DS3s Remapped by FlashRemapping and more great gains – makes these French Pocket rockets even better – Roghly the same BHp as a DS3R and more Torque – Lovely

Mercedes CLK 220Cdi 150Bhp
ECU Remapped 04/12/2011
Gain 38BHp 75Nm
Fitted with a performance air filter , exhaust and AMG alloys this Mercedes certainly looked the part but didnt have the go to match the show. Well it does now, nice gains in throttle response and performance have transformed the car

SAAB 9-3 2.0 Aero Turbo 205 Bhp
ECU Remapped 04/12/2011
GAIN 35Bhp 70Nm
Not a slow car to start with but Denny who is a biker at heart wanted a little more – I must admit I was supprised to see the 2003 Saab fitted with a trionic t8 ecu not the t7 but never the less after a very slow read Jason wrote a great file that improves performance and smooths out the power delivery making this car very swift

BMW 520D M Sport E60
ECU Remapped 07/12/2011
Gain 50BHp 75Nm
Library Photo – FlashRemapping will do our best to fit in with the customer and in this case Mark brought the car to us after work – no problem just over an hour later it is now a lot sharper even with the auto gearbox

Hyundai I800 2.5 CRDi 168Bhp
ECU Remapped 08/12/2011 Blue Optimize
Gain 30BHp 60Nm
These people carriers are great value for money – so much cheaper than a T5 Transporter and the quality of the plastics not that bad – plenty of power too but a little more oomph and some extra mpg will go down a treat – well the power was there on the test drive will report back on the mpg

VW PassatB6  2.0 TDi 140Bhp
ECU Remapped 08/12/2011 Blue Optimize
Gain 28BHp 55Nm
this 2006 is an early B6 and has been well used with over 100K on the clock but with regular services all from the main dealer  there is still plenty of life to come. Now added a few more BHp and with the Blue Optimize remap there will definately be a few more mpg

Ford Transit Connect 110Bhp
ECU Remapped 12/12/2011 Blue Optimize
Gain 20BHp 40Nm
Economy is what its all about here – as any tradesman will tell you fuel costs are hurting profitability at the moment as they are always out working or pricing jobs – and lets be honest the little connect with the 110BHp version of the 1.8 Tdci engine is pretty pokey anyway

Mercedes Vito 110 Auto
ECU Remapped 12/12/2011 Blue Optimize
Gain 28BHp 55Nm
Economy Economy Economy – Performance at the pumps is outweighing performance in the 0-60 times now – but the extra power is always welcome as well – bit sharper throttle response will help this very clean 2001 Vito along nicely

Citroen C3 Picasso 1.6 HDI 110Bhp
ECU Remapped 12/12/2011 Blue Optimize
Gain 20BHP 40Nm
Fuel economy is the aim of the game again here, Steve had bought this car with official figures for combined driving of 58.8 mpg but has only been achieving low 40s – Citroen have investigated and told him there is nothing wrong – so dissapointed he has turned to us to up the mpg – of course we will give it a few more BHp as well as mpg and better throttle response – Im sure Steve will be happy

Audi A3 2.0 TDi 140BHp
ECU Remapped 12/12/11
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
For a change today this customer wanted performance and the remapping for this engine certainly gives plenty of that – we would also expect decent fuel savings if driven with consideration – mind you that might not happen

Audi A5 3.0 Tdi 240BHp
ECU Remapped 13/12/2011
Gain 35Bhp 80Nm
Nick has sold his 320d bmw that we remapped and was keen to get his new car tuned. Next day after he picked it up we went to his offices and worked the FlashRemapping magic – even smoother than ever and with better resonse – these 3.0 Audi a5s go very well

Saab 2003 9-3 1.8t (2 litre) 150BHp
ECU Remapped 14/12/2011
Gain 35BHp 70Nm
This is the lower powerer (Light Pressure Turbo) from Saab and although badged 1.8 is actually still the 2 litre engine but with only 150BHp – so something is needed there – a FlashRemapping Remap has solved the lack of power and has gained right through the rev range giving sharper throttle response – another job well done

Mercedes E320Cdi 222BHp Auto
ECU Remapped 14/12/2011
Gain 38Bhp 100Nm
Even with a fair few miles on the clock this big Merc is still in fantastic condition and its teh Avantgarde as well
It has recently been fitted with a new turbo so we know theres good boost – gains are nice on this vehicle and the torque figure is very impressive especially welcome with the auto box

BMW 525D Msport 177Bhp
ECU Remapped 14/12/2011
Gain 42Bhp 85Nm
We have heard this story a lot recently – the customer was going to change his car but the one he already has does everything he needs it to – well why not give your current vehicle a new lease of life with a FlashRemapping remap – bags of extra power and torque improve the drive dramatically – a new car for under £300 excellent – it now has the go to match the M badges the car has been adourned with

“I just wanted to say thanks for a great job from my original contact enquiry to having my BMW remapped the very next day – the customer care was superb! David visited me at work and within an hour my BMW 525D M had been transformed with an extra 42 BHP. The throttle response and extra torque has made the car handle and drive completely differently – loads more pulling power, smooth transition through the gearbox – it genuinely feels like a different motor. I was considering selling for another beemer – now I will keep this one thanks to the remapping and the extra power it gave. First class job and much appreciated.” Kenny  – North London.

BMW E46 320D 150BHp
ECU Remapped 16/12/2011
Gain 40Bhp 80Nm
Very reliable, economical and generally just a good car these E46bms are all the car you need – but why not give it a bit more Zing – FlashRemapping can do that for you and then some 40Bhp transforms the drive and unless you have a really big right foot fuel economy will not decrease in fact in many cases improves

Porsche 911(996) Turbo 420Bhp
ECU Remapped 16/12/2011
Gain 80Bhp 110Nm
Power corrupts – Absolute power corrupts absolutely
If you have 420 ponies under your right foot many would say thats enough – but the temptation is there and with a FlashRemapping tune another 80 ponies come to the party – Enjoy but remember with great power comes great responsibility

Mercedes c270Cdi w203 170Bhp Auto
ECU Remapped 17/12/2011
Gain 40Bhp 100Nm
Nick has given up on the people carriers now the kids are older and treated himself to a Merc – while he is looking for improved economy he uses the vehicle to tow his sons boat a fair amount of time – experience tells us that when a car works this hard the best way to improve economy is performance remapping and when not towing as long as he doesn’t go mad will still see decent fuel savings –

Audi TTS 2.0 TFSi 272Bhp
ECU Remapped 20/12/2011
Gain 40BHp 80Nm
The TTS has the same 2 litre engine as the TT but with more power in fact 75BHp more power – this makes them a very swift vehicle especially for a 2 litre – but theres more available, FlashRemapping have remapped a few of these now and 40BHp gains are really noticable making the whole car feel more urgent

BMW 525D E60 3.0 193Bhp
ECU Remapped 21/12/2011
Gain 42BHp 85Nm
These BMWs are really solid vehicles this one had already over 100k miles – not that you woudl know by looking at it, with 1 company owner and full service history its nothing to worry about – gains are noticable feeling genuinely sharper all round

VW Crafter 2.5 TDi 109Bhp
ECU Remapped 22/12/2011 and DPF Removal
Gain 35BHp 70Nm
Tim is in the Motor business being an expert in vehicle diagnostic and when his mobile workshop went a bit wrong he knew the DPF was the cause – He removed the Filter itself and brought the van round – We have removed the DPF software within the ecu and given it a blend remap as well – It certainly performs a lot better now with much more urge especially around 2500 rpm and he will have no more DPF problems – Happy Christmas Tim

BMW 520D E61 163Bhp Auto
ECU Remapped 28/12/2011
Gain 54Bhp 90Nm
After coming out of a 2003 530d Stuart was impressed with the 520d but was after a bit more – well we gave him the performance remap that takes the 2 litre engine past the stock figures for the early 3 litre versions – and with reasonable driving will see improvements in mpg too although not if he drives too hard
