Another fantastic BMW 320d graced us with its presence recently, even in the sport mode, the BMW can still pick its feet, the owner wanted a little bit more.
In standard tune BMW produces and nice 187bhp and 295lb ft, nudging 100bhp per litre already 🙂
Once tuned it should produce
238bhp and 340lb ft, and with the extra torque MPG should imrove by approximately 10% too.
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.
