Land Rover Freelander ECU remap at Tuning Emporium

A recent customer had his Land Rover Freelander in for a remap and software update with us at Tuning Emorium.

We did this remotely at customers house.  Before we commenced the remap process we had to do a software update on the vehicle.  This we can do for all models of the Jaguar Land Rover range, contact us for more details.

Again this is not a job we can rush, we always take our time to ensure our work is correct.

In standard tune the engine should produce 156bhp and 295 lb ft.

Once tuned with our bespoke remap and egr delete function it should produce 199bhp and 369lb ft.

And as its a manual gearbox, it certianly delivered the extra power a lot smoother.

One main benefit of remapping will be a reduction in fuel consumption meaning that fuel will last you longer so saving YOU money. With the gained extra torque especially at the lower rev range you will see a fuel saving, as it will require less throttle input.

ECU remapping not only improves the engines power and torque, it will also heighten throttle response and expand the power-band. This means things like power delivery will be a lot more linear, which in turn will make the vehicle feel a lot more responsive too. The vehicles power output is frequently restricted by the manufacturer for no reason. Being a driving enthusiast, there is no need for such restrictions to be placed upon your ECU and reducing its performance therefore getting your ECU remapped you could benefit from the hidden power and torque that is hiding within your engine management system.

Benfits for a turbocharged diesel engine:

  • Increased torque
  • Increased horsepower
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Safer overtaking

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.

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.

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.

Golf R32 Milltek and Forge upgrade at Tuning Emporium

A great example of a Volkswagen Golf Mark Five R32, visited us recently for a power upgrade.  We don’t mind tuning noramlly aspirated engines, so long as there’s decent power to weight ratio, or there’s substantial bhp gains to be had.

Mark 5 Golf’s as a range have great tuning potenital, and the R32 sometimes gets overlooked as it hasn’t got a turbo bolted to the side of it.  Fear not there are options out there.  Firstly a bespoke fitting of an induction kit, from Forge Motorsport.  This will aid the breathing of this beast, and makes a nice noise too.

Secondly is a stainless steel exhaust system from Milltek, helping to get the gases out quicker.  Before fitting any exhaust system, always best to lay them out to the floor to ensure the bends are in the right place, and all parts present before offering it up to the vehicle.  Next  to these parts our professional tuning upgrade, and this is now a complete V6 pocket rocket.

Audi S3 remapping at Tuning Emporim

Another favourite engine to tune, is these Audi S3’s, we can tune all years of the Audi S3, from the 210bhp 1.8t from the late 90’s right through to the current 2.0 TFSI 300bhp 2018MY.

These Audi 8P engines are very tuneable, starting at 265bhp and 350nm, with correct supporting modifications, Tuning Emporium can extract over 400bhp.

In this particular vehicle we stuck with a safe stage 1 remap, along with a Ramair Air filter upgrade.

This map was written in house, to produce power at 310bhp and 420nm, designed to be used with standard engine and drivetrain, with the 4WD system, this covers ground a lot quicker than standard 🙂

Mini Cooper SD 170bhp remapping at Tuning Emporium

Another recent car came to us for one of our bespoke tunes, again, not exactly a slouch in standard tune, but both the customer and us knew there was room for improvement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Featuring a Bosch EDC17 ECU, we can tune these via obd, whereas before we had to remove the ecu from the car.

After checking it for no faults, carrying out a winter health check, which includes, checking battery condition, anti freeze, oil level, air filter, screenwash, and tyre for depth and pressure.

 

We don’t just scan the engine ecu before tuning a vehicle, we scan all the ECU’s.

In standard tune these engines produce 170bhp and 265lb ft.

After one of our bespoke tunes, power should increase too:

220bhp and 324lb ft.

 

This tune has transformed this great little car, and does over 60mpg, up from 52mpg.

Ford Transit remapping at Tuning Emporium

Had this 2015 2.2 MY high side Ford Transit in for a recent tune up.

It had just come out of warranty and had been very well serviced.

After checking for any faults, we put it on the dyno to see what was going on.

It produced 115bhp (despite been a 125bhp model) and 226lb ft.

 

We then set about increasing the power to safe limit, bearing in mind that these are in a restricted tune from the factory.

We gradually increased the power to 175bhp, 184bhp then settled on 192bhp and 350 lbft, seriously transforming how this van drives.

192bhp and 350lb ft for Ford Transit 2.2 on dyno, up from 115bhp and 225lb ft
