Sweet

Even though you are only having it done for improved fuel consumption or may be towing I bet you will still get caned on the insurance...

That does seem cheap if you're into this chavvy sort of thing. Why would you tell your insurance company?

i did this on my seat ibiza fr tdi

Not chavvy at all, and if you are involved in an accident and haven't declared any mods (including a Revo map) your insurance is likely invalid.

Edit: This is a Revo offer, so will likely apply to other Revo dealers.

VAG only... no good for me

By the way, why is it "chavvy" to remap your engine? I want mine remapped so i dont have to go out and spend/lose money buying the same car with a different engine. Works out to be far more cost effective, especially since it improves your fuel consumption as well.

Im guessing all these people calling it "chavvy" are driving round in prius' and drive on motorways at 56mph whilst wearing a flat cap.

Generalising slightly!
Not "Chavvy" at all. I have a 105BHP Jetta which is completely unmodified and am thinking about getting it remapped to increase Torque and squeeze an extra >25bhp and 10MPG out of the stock engine. I travel 70miles a day so the increase in MPG will soon pay for it self.

My insurance company have quoted an extra £58 increase to my annual policy which isn't a massive amount.

Hot from me!

Where to start? Why would it only be "Chavs" that do this exactly? I've known plenty of older gentleman with Rover's who've performed this modification for a little extra help towing their caravans.. But please do explain yourself, this is after all an open community for public views..

Why is this dangerous? Again, please do enlighten us, because we all respect your right to an opinion, however mis-guided it may be. So, for instance, let's take a 2nd generation BMW 318.. You may even have one yourself. If you buy the 318i variant, you have 113BHP. If you buy a 318iS, you have 140BHP. Same engine, different map. Another example, sticking with the old gentleman and his Rover. Let's say he has a Rover 75 2.0 Diesel. This used the same 2.0 Diesel lump as the E46 BMW 320D. In the Rover it has 116BHP. In the BMW it has 135BHP.. Is this some kind of magical Voodoo, or is it in fact just a different map? I'll let you decide.

Just so we're all sure of the crux of your argument though, BMW is releasing "Dangerous" cars because the same engine runs a map with slightly more power? This is big news.. Surely you should go to the press with this, and alert buyers to the potential danger?

Or maybe you should just keep your small minded and unfounded opinions to yourself?

Cracking deal BTW, OP - Voted hot :)

M3nderez I completely agree with your comments and the chipping of cars with large exhausts, dump valves and neon lights has passed over to the huge gains that can be had out of chipping diesels and still getting 50mpg+!

Technically though your BMW 318i info is wrong as the 318is was a 16v engine compared to the 8v engine in the normal 318i (same again for the early E46 2000+ 318i had the 118bhp 8v compared to the later 143bhp 16v engine).

The arrogance of some of the previous comments is unbelievable!!

Read the website - 190BHP and 290 Torque. 200 is easily acheiveable as these are usually more than 150BHP stock from the factory.

Don't worry about him - he drives an Audi and votes everything cold. 8)

Not chavvy or dangerous. There are a million and one reasons why someone might want to get their car chipped as you have rightly pointed out. VW is a great example when they produced the 1.9TDI PD units in 90, 100, 115, 130 and 150 BHP - Does that mean that the 150BHP is more chavvy and dangerous than the 90?? I don't think so! Same with the new 2.0 CR which comes in 105, 140 and 170BHP. I have the 170bhp and a factory fitted spoiler so i must be chavvy and dangerous X)

i had my passat remapped and my misses could get over 60mpg on a good run and with 170bhp there when you need it instead of 130 it originally had
the arosa i know have will do 70+mpg :)

all a remap does is take advantage of our countries fuel quality and adjust the way the engine runs to make it more efficient on the fuel we use and a few other things :)

Certainly upgrades any diesel driving experience in my opinion. My last 2 Octavias have had remapped engines and the difference is remarkable.
#25
I personally think remapping a diesel is essential iv had my previous 2 cars Peugeot HDI's and my current car Astra 1.9 cdti remapped and the difference is unbelivable not only in power but also the smoothness of how the powers delivered and mpg

Now i await the replys calling me a chav for my age (_;)
#26
my 2p's worth...

we have an Octavia 1.8t elegance, standard power output quoted as 150bhp 155lb/ft torque.
I got it remapped at 28k miles by R-Tech, took it for a dyno test and it put out 205bhp and 236lb/ft.
No other modifications.

Needless to say, it totally transformed the performance in a VERY good way.
It can do a couple more to the gallon on a run than before but generally speaking, it's not much different to before.
Although if you exploit the available performance it will be significantly more thirsty than before, but that's up to the driver.
23k miles later, there have been no issues or problems at all.

I have declared it to the insurers.

In summary as regards a remap, if available for your car, it's a big thumbs up from me (if it hasn't got a turbo probably not worth bothering with though)
#27
Great deal, voted hot. Shame both my cars have already been remapped!

This could of actualy been achieved as the astra 1.9cdti goes from 150bhp to around 210bhp with a good remap

Plus my 8v 1.9 Cdti went from 120bhp to 165bhp

I too think it is a con, unless they build into their pricing some sort of claim fund against people taking them to small claims if it goes wrong for their car.

A tuning box differs from a remap so it isn't really a great comparison. I would do a little more research on them before you splash your cash ;)

The software is of course different between some models and therefore does require a different approach. However some of the prices are different for a number of reasons, the 1.8T code is an old code, the 2.0 TFSi is a popular code so supply and demand enters here, TDi codes are often cheaper as they can require less refinement.
#32
A lot depends on why you want to remap the car,eg more power or better mpg or poss both,if its the power will the rest of the drive train be up to the job of handling it,for a example ,the scirocco 140 bhp tdi is the same engine as the tdi 170,its remapped from 140 to 170 by vw,however the driveshafts are different on the 170 to cope with the extra power,as are other components,so not only would your insurance be void in the unlikely event of a claim but i think more important is if your car is 3 years or under ,bye bye warranty,and yes due to most modern cars using dianostics they would spot a remap pretty easily,for the record awesome vw have a excellent reputation as you will find out in the wait times when booking a vag based car in for repairs.

It is dangerous, to increase engine power without consideration of matching the rest of the car, i.e brakes, tyres, suspension etc. Not to mention financially foolish, i.e engine, transmission failure etc.

Theres reasons why insurance industry charge more, or wont insure, and its not because they dont want business. They know the stats.

hahaha no offence fella but that sounds like a quote straight from the Revo sales catalogue.

I have owned diesel tuning boxes from DTUK for nearly 10 years on various cars. And I have had a remap from Jabbasport on my old Octy VRS. My honest opinion after parting with cash in both directions is, that with the right map on the tuning box it does offer better value than a remap with a loss of about 10% of the performance from the full remap.

The Mickiemap on DTUK boxes for Zafiras for example has been available for 3 or 4 years. I have it in my wifes zafira. Tailored specifically to the Zafira, it allows me to switch it between cars every time I change her car.

If you speak to Andrew @ DTUK he will put a custom map on said CRD system tailoring it to your specific needs.

btw: REVO flash eeproms. It's not a dark art. I think your coment re: Supply and demmand is nearer the mark. :)

I think the VAG 140/170 range will have a few different engine components than driveshafts. Also there is the 140PD, 140CR, 170PD and 170CR. I know for sure the 140PD has different injectors that the 170PD.

The warranty would only be void on any components that had damage or failure attributable to the remap. For example if the boot lock fails they won't tell you to **** off cause you have a remap. Conversely blow a hole in a piston and that would be a different story.

Hmmm their quoted increases in power and torque are a bit generous, and the 2.0TFSI price is outrageous, but otherwise not bad. Bare in mind Revo often engine maps to be aggressive and deliver a big shove rather than spread the power increase across the band, so if you like a smoother power delivery, I'd look elsewhere.

It's got naff all to do with the sales pitch from REVO but a little more of knowing what you're talking about.

A tuning box will plug into the wiring loom to the injectors and modify the signal to the injector to increase open duty time and allow more fuel in. Granted the type you describe are marginally better than the old school resistor in a box but they still don't compete with a remap that will modify a number of parameters in the ECU software to increase fuelling, boost pressure and to take account of the additional torque.

If you want to talk about value for money then agreed the Tuning Box route which as you say can be moved from vehicle to vehicle will give you more bang for your buck but throwing more fuel into the pots isn't the optimum solution and does have side effects and as I said earlier is not a direct comparison for a Remap which is what is being discussed here.

And just to clear up the EEPROM flashing comment, it is now becoming a dark art as most ECU's on later cars carry encryption to prevent remapping and a large number of new ECU's are now locked so must be unlocked prior to being flashed.
