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.

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.

VW T6 Transporter Bi Turbo Tdi Remap 276bhp and 436lb ft at Tuning Emporium

Tuning Emporium had this cracking VW Transporter in for a custom remap recently.

A bi Turbo 2.0 Tdi engine In stock tune it produced 210bhp and 360lb ft.  wherever possible we always encourage customers to have their vehicles dyno’d to prove before and after figures.

Tuning Emporium never try to mislead or over estimate power gains, thats the reason for a dyno.  And sometimes vehicles are not producing figures from the manufacturers.  In this instance the VW was producing slightly more than standard, 210bhp book says 204bhp.

 

 

With our bespoke tune still with original filter and DPF in place, its now an amazing 276bhp and 434lb ft.

We offer tuning upgrades on most of the VW range, Polo, Golf, Passat, T Roc, Tiguan, Touareg to name a few.  All our maps are still MOT compliant, and we always keep your original map, should it ever need putting back to standard for dealer visits.

We continuously invest in up to date professional equipment.

VW Amarok 3.0 Tdi ECU remap at Tuning Emporium

One of the last cars we tuned in 2018, but has to be one of the best we have ever done.

The three litre engine, is a well proven unit through out the VAG range, including The Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, Q5, A4, A5, A6, A7 and A8, VW Touarag, to name a few.

VW Amarok ECU tuning at Tuning Emporium, 320bhp and 503lb ft with remap, from 224bhp and 401lb ft.

In standard tune in the VW it produces a respectable 224bhp and 401 lb ft.

As the norm a full ecu health check is carried before any tune.  As we expected no faults, we proceeded to unleash a few more brake horse power.

As this unit is a de tuned engined from the Audi Q7, gains are massive.

Dyno runds have seen these at 320bhp and 503 lb ft.

Thats plus 106bhp and 102lb ft gain, or nearly a 50% bhp gain  and a 25% increase in torque.

 

Needelss to say the test drive went very well, and pulled like a dream, also sorting out the gearbox changes in the process.

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 🙂

Land Rover Discovery 3 TDV6, remapping with egr delete at Tuning Emporium

Yet another week and another Land Rover model in for a tune up with EGR problems.

Despite having had a new egr previous year, this one decided to fail again.  So we took the opportunity to blank both EGR’s permanently.

Land Rover 2.7 TDV6 egr blank with remap for all model years

After extracting the relevant fault codes from the ECU, we proceeded to mechanically blank the EGR’s.  We can do this on all model years of the 2.7TDV6 engine found in both Land Rover Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport.

It might look like the standard pipe, but for MOT purposes with blank plate is under the original pipework 🙂

Whilst we had the discovery we also took the opportunity to waxoil the chassis too.  Vehicles like this with a separate ladder chassis need protecting to prolong their life.

 

Once done, a recoat every 2 or three years depending on where car  is driven, stored and climate conditions.
