BMW M3 F30 remapping at Tuning Emporium

One letter and one number always a very special vehicle from Germany, iconic M3.

The M3 version of the F30 3 series was designated the F80 and was produced from 2014—2018. The F80 M3 was powered by the BMW S55 twin-turbo straight-six engine, therefore being the first turbocharged M3 model. Despite the smaller displacement than the V8 engine used by the previous generation, peak power was increased by 8 kW (11 bhp) and peak torque was increased by 150 N⋅m (111 lb⋅ft).

The official 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) times were 3.9 seconds with the M-DCT transmission and 4.1 seconds with the manual transmission. Top speed is limited to 155 mph (249 km/h) but an optional M Driver’s package raises this to 174 mph (280 km/h).

Here at Tuning Emporium, we’ve had to continuely invest in new equipment so we can keep up to date with new models that can be tuned, both through the OBD port and on the bench.

With this partiuclar car, the customer wanted a nice power increase but too mad, so we settled on a bespoke stage 1 remap through the OBD port.

 

Power gains as follows:

standard tune is 424bhp and 406lb ft.

we safely increased this to 495bhp and 485lb ft.

Any more than that and the turbo’s won’t last very long, hybrid upgrade the only solution here.

 

Transformation is stunning, the car is so much eager to get going, and gear changes are improved from the increased torque.

Range Rover TDV8 remapping with egr delete at Tuning Emporium

Here at Tuning Emporium if there’s a vehicle we more than most its the L322 TDv8 Range Rover.

Most common issue with these is EGR’s and Turbo’s.

TDV8 ecu remapping at Tuning Emporium

This is down to lack of maintenance and or too long service intervals.  We suggest Oil change every eight to ten thousand miles, or whichever comes first.

Regular oil changes are key to prolong the life of any engine, but in the case of the L322 especially more so, due to how small these turbo’s are in relation to size and weight of the vehicle.

With every remap on these engines, we always perform an EGR blank on the ecu, worst case, we mechaically blank them too.

In regards of power upgrades, standard power is 268bhp or 272bhp and 472lb ft.

with our performance remap power increases to

320bhp and 547lb ft.

 

MPG on average also improves by 10% too.  34mpg not uncommon on long journeys.

What is a remap? how does it work? Tuning Emporium explains

 

What is remapping?

Engine remapping has become increasingly popular over the past decade or so, as drivers become more familiar with the little boxes, that control their cars vital functions, and more aware of the opportunities to ‘tweak’ the settings.

TDV8 fitted with Skytag Tracker, and now with a stage 1 remap with 10% better fuel economy confimed by customer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The process used to be called chipping, as it literally meant swapping a microchip in your car’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU) with a modified version. Nowadays the black art has advanced to the point where home-brewed engine remapping software is available to download from various internet groups for brave and/or tech-savvy home-tuners who like to experiment. We’d never recommend that route, as unsurprisingly there’s a significant risk of causing expensive engine damage if a remap is not done properly.

So for most people an engine remap involves a trip to a local specialist Like Tuning Emporium, where we  can overwrite your factory engine settings via a laptop, directly into your car’s OBD port, or we can tune your ecu on the bench.

There are two primary reasons for wanting a remap, and they’re called power and torque. When your car left the factory there’s a very good chance its performance was deliberately muted in order to meet product planning objectives or economy and efficiency targets.

These days the power and performance of most cars is limited, not by any particular mechanical factor, but by the software running in the engine control unit (ECU).

Computer algorithms running behind the scenes while you’re driving a modern car affect all sorts of parameters, such as ignition timing, air/fuel ratio and turbocharging boost pressure.

So if you want greater performance and pulling power from your car, or alternatively if you’re seeking mpg improvements, the first place to look is the little black box under the bonnet. Here at Tuning Emporium, we receive plenty of emails asking advice about ECU software changes, and we’ve compiled this guide to explore the pros, cons and costs.

Chipping turbodiesel engines can increase economy by seven to 10 per cent, because it adds torque lower down the rev range. This means the engine doesn’t have to work as hard as before. It’s these turbo diesel engines often known as TDI, HDi, CDTi, CDI,depending on the manufacturer that are cornerstone of the car chipping industry because an engine chip or software upgrade can cheaply add so much to the performance.

Our Prices start at £199 for OBD tuning, and ECU bench tuning costs start at £275.

Are ther any downsides to getting your ECU “chipped”?

Some people are concerned that engine remapping could cause problems with their car. But it shouldn’t affect reliability if you use a reputable company such as Tuning Emporium.

Remapping does put extra strain on an engine, but not a dangerous amount. We check carefully that the temperatures and pressures our remaps put the engine through don’t exceed the acceptable parameters.

For example, we run a 2008 Seat Leon 2.0 TDi 136bhp engine.

To date we have done 10,000 miles trouble free, with it running at 200bhp and 280lb ft, mpg is up by 10% too.

Most cars’ engines are built to offer more performance than they actually deliver, manufacturers launch a car with a set power figure, but then over the life of the model they’ll introduce a few facelifts and performance versions.

“They don’t develop new engines for each new version: mostly they limit the performance of the earlier models and then offer a little more power with each new edition. We just release the optimum performance.”

Obviously, you need to inform your insurer of a remap.

How much does car remapping or chipping cost?

Our Prices start at £199 for OBD tuning, and ECU bench tuning costs start at £275, the sky is the limit in terms of what you can spend on more advanced parts and services,The type of car you have will be a determining factor in the price you pay

You can also pay to have your car tested on a rolling road here at Tuning Emporium, so you can see the effect any ECU remapping work has had on the engine’s power and torque output.  But we do offer a mobile service subject to location and or Post code.

Benefits of having your car remapped:

Car manufacturers are known to program their models’ ECUs so that they are not performing at peak efficiency. This allows them to release a sportier model with a more efficient engine by simply reprogramming the ECU and making small design tweaks. Remapping your car means you can get the most out of your engine – improving performance, fuel efficiency and responsiveness.

Improved engine performance is another way of saying more speed and more power. The increase in horsepower you’ll get from remapping depends on what sort of engine you have. For example, you could get an increase of as much as 40-50bhp (brake horse power) for a turbo engine. It may be lower in other engines. Many remapping services also boast an increase in torque of up to 80nm (Newton metres). In other words, it’ll feel faster!

In regard to improved fuel efficiency, this really depends on how you drive your car. Rushing through gears, sudden and fast acceleration, speeding and sudden braking can have a negative effect on your fuel economy, increasing consumption up to 40%. While this is true whether you remap your engine or not, the combination of remapping and smooth driving will offer better fuel efficiency than good driving on its own.

As part of the remapping process Tuning Emporium can also offer (subject to vehicle and modifications) a variety of extras too, these include:

stages 1 to 4 of remapping

EGR delete

DPF solutions

Specific diagnostic trouble code delete

Ford Ranger Remapping at Tuning Emporium

We did some work for a local dealer recently, on a Wildtrack Ford Ranger 3.2.

Although a nice displacement in engine size, could still do with a little bit more BHP and LB Ft, to help towing.

We didn’t have to look to far for any ECU faults, non present.

In standard tune these produce 197bhp and 347lb ft.

For a stage 1 tune, it should produce

235bhp and 400lb ft.

plus 38bhp and 53lb ft over standard tune

A nice significant increase for extra towing ability.

However watch this space as we nice tuning package coming along for this set up, including a free flowing exhaust, intercooler and air filter upgrade.

They’re engines and ECU’s are the best to communicate with, the last VW that came to us was this lovely, Golf GTD 180bhp estate, in manual gearbox form.

In standard tune, it should produce, 180bhp and 280lb ft.

Once tuned by us, it should produce, 220bhp and 332lb ft.  This customer was wanting a little bit more pulling power and MPG.  With the increase in torque, this should help the MPG, currently at 58mpg.

Dyno to follow, for proof of figures.

Defender Puma 2.2 TDCi, remapping at Tuning Emporium….again :)

We love tuning Land Rover Defenders here at Tuning Emporium, we have yet to see the same spec twice, such is the versatility of them.

 

But there’s one thing they lack, is performance, even in standard tune, they are vey sluggish, even worse, when you want to tow something.

Defender 2.2 Puma remapping at Tuning Emporium

Happily we can help.  Such was the terrible power of the car, the customer was going to look at selling it, happily they didn’t and we set to work.

Stock power is a de tuned, Ford 2.2 TDCi engine, with 122bhp and 266lb ft.  once tuned, should be 165bhp and 310lb ft.

Making quite a nice power upgrade, and it certainly worked even in speeds up to 30mph, the difference was amazing.  We also took the opportunity to change air filters, to a K&N one.

Isuzu D Max, remap at Tuning Emporium

Another popular truck in for a tune up recently at here @TE_TuningEmprm was an Isuzu D MAx, 2.5 TD 136bhp.

When fully laden these trucks really need some extra grunt to get them going, but not at the expense of clutch or turbo.

Isuzu D Max remap @TE_TuningEmprm
Isuzu D Max remap @TE_TuningEmprm

All our stage 1 maps, are designed to be used on standard components.

In standard tune these trucks produce 136bhp and 216lb ft, with our stage 1 power upgrade we should see 175bhp and 272 lb ft.

Which makes a lot difference when the vehicle is fully laden, in gear power has been transformed along with MPG.

Why not also get your pride and joy fitted with one of our Skytag trackers, for that added piece of mind security.

Audi Q5 tdi remapping at Tuning Emporium

Another Audi in 2.0 Tdi guise.  Although its reasonably brisk in manual form, there’s always a little room for improvement.

In standard guise the engine produces 177bhp and 280lb ft, as usual we checked to make sure the DPF and EGR (the most popular faults on these engines) didn’t flag anything up, along with a full health check on the car before we proceeded to write a new map for it.

After tune we should be looking to see 210bhp and 317lb ft.  Immediately pulling away up hill in first, there was no delay in throttle response, and pulled smoother through out the rev range.

Mpg has already improved by 5mpg on like for like driving.
