ECU Remapping, Chipping and Chip Tuning
FlashRemapping, November 2017

VW Beetle 1.8T Remap

Forge Recirculation Valve

VW Beetle 1.8T Remap

ECU Remapped 11/11/2017
Gain 40Bhp 80nm
The 1.8t VAG Engine has lots of tuning potential – this stage 1 remap on the 150ps version has great gains – Its the lowest power stock of the 1.8T range. In a beetle we have to turn the pull up speed down to allow it to read OBD but its worth the wait. Fitting a Forge BOV makes sense on these too and its just 3 pipes to connect – this one a recirculating one – we dont all want the blow off loud type
Test drive certainly impressed Andrew the owner 


BMW E60 525D Remap

BMW 525D E60 Remap

ECU Remapped 15/11/2017
Gain 42Bhp 90Nm
Being a 2007 vehicle this 5 series has a 3 litre motor and is ripe for tuning, great gaisn of 42Bhp and 90Nm improving performance and throttle response as well as improved MPG

Land Rover Discovery TDV6 Remap

Land Rover Discovery 2.7 tdv6 Remap

ECU remapped 16/11/2017
Gain 38Bhp 85Nm
The 2.7 litre discovery 3 is a bit underpowered and also suffers from egr problems. We can easily remap these vehicles and delete the egr function making a better drive with improved economy and no more egr problems


Audi A3 2.0 FSi Remap

Audi A3 2.0 fsi Remap

ECU Remapped 16/11/2017
Gain 10Bhp 12Nm
I hate the winter for being cold but even worse is the early dark night
Still we keep tuning and decent gains from the Nasp petrol audi
A very long read but now has sharper throttle response and gains right through the Rev range


Ford Fiesta 1.4 Remap

Ford fiesta 1.4 Remap

Ecu remapped 18/11/2017
Gain 5 bhp 9 nm
The 1.4 litre automatic fiesta with no turbo is not a regular car to have remapped but the owners personal situation required an automatic car in a low insurance category
Now to make the best he can of the situation
5 bhp isn’t going to change things massively but a much crisper throttle response is noticeable and a bit more power throughout the Rev range

Mercedses w205 220cdi Remap

Mercedes w205 c220 cdi Remap

Ecu remapped 19/11/2017
Gain 35bhp 70 nm
The w205 Mercedes is the latest version of the c class still using the delphi crd3 ecu so we can tune via the obd port. It is One of the slowest reads though 1 hour 40 minutes just to copy the 4 mb software
Results are great though and more power and better throttle response immediately noticeable
Good things come to those who wait 

Audi A8 D3 4.2 TDi Remap

Audi A8 4.2tdi Remap

Ecu remapped 20/11/2017
Gain 45 bhp 100nm
The d3 audi a8 4.2 tdi has two ecus
Both carry the same software and they have to be identical for the car to run 
So whatever you change in the master ecu you have to change in the slave
Makes the job a little longer but worthwhile
Already boasting 326 bhp and 650 nm of torque it has decent performance but now it’s very quick for a big car

VW Touran 2.0 tdI ECU Cloning

VW Touran 2007 2.0 TDi ECU Cloning

ECU Cloned 23/11/2017
If your ECU has a fault a replacement can be very costly – Over £1000 on this 2007 VW Touran putting it possibly beyond economical repair. Fortunately a second hand ecu with matching bosch numbers 02810XXXXX was found and we can easil;y copy the whole ecu data from one ecu to the other
Saving a huge percentage of replacement costs – We can do this for many common ecus

BMW 320D GT Remap

BMW 320D GT Remapping

BMW 320d gt Remap

Ecu remapped 25/11/2017
Gain 40 bhp 80nm
First gt we have mapped here at Flashremapping but no problem as the engine and ecu ate the same as all f series 320d. Two hours to remove ecu open read and write and reinstall more importantly two hours to a transformed drive


VW Polo 1.2 TDi Remap

VW Polo 1.2 tdi Remap

Ecu remapped 26/11/2017
Gain 25BHp 45Nm
It’s not all high performance cars in remapping. This 1.2 litre tdi Polo is a perfect example of how a more humble car can benefit from a remap with just 75 bhp stock the gain is 33% more
And torque up from 180 to 225 nm 
The difference is immediately noticeable
All tuned via the obd port in an.hour

BMW 635D Remap

Bmw 635d Remap

Ecu remapped 28/11/2017
Gain 65 bhp 125nm
One of our favorite engines the twin turbo 3 litre 6 cylinder diesel from Bmw
Producing 282 bhp stock and 580nm of torque
Now with nearly 350 bhp and 700 nm it’s a real monster

Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake Remap

Mercedes CLS 350 CDi Shooting Brake Remap

ECU Remapped 30/11/217
Gain 38Bhp 85Nm
Carlsberg dont do remaps but if they did it would be something like this – A stunning CLS Shooting Brake with a 3 litre Turbo diesel engine , An absolute gentleman of a customer who had preheated his triple garage and had the kettle on and choccy digestives at the ready. The Ecu lives in the drivers side wheel arch and this is a bench tune but much more comfortable in the warm , The edc17cp46 is the later ecu version with the hard lid so opening the ecu is simple and a two boot pin connection – All back together in around 2 hours and the car is now swifter and more economical. On a cold November morning this was just what the doctor ordered – I did however forget to take a picture of the car so you will have to have this stock picture instead
