Diesel Remaps

Postby xizaccyix » Tue Dec 20, 2016 3:22 pm

Hello all...

I have started conversations with a tuning company to see if they have any remaps for my 1.6 (136) diesel.

I was wondering if anyone else has already had theirs done and/or if there is any more information around?

I have seen some info regarding the petrol turbos on here but not denzels.

Thanks.
Zac

If you are in no rush, I'm just in the process of helping one of the companies in researching maps for my biturbo. Results on 6th of Jan.

Thanks guys..

The response I got from a company called Celtic Tuning based in Newquay, Cornwall... (https://www.celtictuning.co.uk/)

"The protocol to be able to read and write to your ECU has only been released in the last couple of weeks. At present, we are looking for a local customer to bring us their car as a demo – you are quite some distance from us."

They have added me to an update list.

And no I am in no rush just looking for options.

Hopefully we will achieve some gains here. Now my car is tuned to stable 193bhp/420nM and got the computer connected to it for next two weeks to observe engine behaviour.

I'd like to get mine mapped as currently running a TDi tuning box. Might wait till the 3yr warranty is up first.

Yeah, that's the only downside. Before each visit to the dealer I have to go back and get the factory settings restored and logs deleted.

The company I mentioned include a 1 year supplementary warranty.. in case Vauxhall don't pay up if something goes wrong.

So you could do it at 2 years and have the last year with them.

Not sure if other companies do this as I have only dealt with Celtic Tuning so far.

How has your motor been running?
