Bit of advice/recommendations please.
I’ve read some posts regarding the remapping (or NOT) of the 102 tdi with auto box and I’m still keen to sort something as I live in a hilly part of the world and the standard set up really is gutless and getting up hills is just beyond painful...
Anybody used the bluefin tool by superchips to remap there t5 ? Mines a 2006 2.5 AXD 130 , and tried loads of OBD2 dongles which failed until I got a obdelven dongle which works fine .
Has anybody got a good result after using this tool?
there's been much written here about remaps, but the focus seemed to be on more power and torque.
I'm rather interested in a remap that aims at better fuel economy, whatever happens to the BHP.
It's for a 2005 T30 2.5 TDi 4motion 130 with about 175k miles, well maintained. It's...
Can anyone recommend someone in the Ipswich area to do a remap on my 88bhp 2.5 TDI. I'm looking for about 120bhp which I understand is the max without changing injectors etc.
I understand Pendle Performance have an agent in the area that they use but the reviews of Pendle seem very mixed?!
T4, 2.5TDi ACV 102
Is there any comparison data between injector changes and remaps and having both done?
Are there different "makes" of remap?
are some made to work with an injector change as well & could you screw up a remap if you then upgraded the injectors?
I will be moving a lot of...
I thought I would share with you my experience with an engine remap I had done a month back by Kingmaps. I have (had) a 102hp T5 camper (carrying weight) with 45K on the clock remaped. After much deliberation I got it done for £300.
After several camping trips the most recent, 4 up to the...
I had problems with my AXE engine and got some repairs done.
Cylinder head and valves cut, sanding, tested with vacuum and pressurized, injector holes honed, injectors cleaned and balanced in the bench, fuel and tandem pump replaced, all new seals, bolts, filters, cam and crankshaft sensors...
Quick back story:
I bought a T5 approx 6 weeks ago which goes into limp mode when in 5th gear going up a hill. Luckily this is covered by warranty but the van has been back and forth to the dealer whilst they try progressively more expensive solutions!
When I bought the van it had been...
I'm considering a remap on my 140bhp 2.0 T5.1, looking for recommendations in the Oxfordshire/Berkshire area please?
Also keen to hear if anyone has improved MPG after a remap (obvs depending on right foot..!).
Can anyone recommend any good remap specialists in Scotland they've used?
I've googled and of course a fair few have been thrown up, but I'd like a few opinions through experiences folk have had - who they are, and good or bad?
I'm thinking of going the PP injector nozzle route on my T4 - ACV...
Just wondering if anyone has used the services of customvanz in Chippenham? Any feedback on service?
I am looking to have my T5 180 remapped, they quote 235BHP, they used to quote 245bhp but reduced it due to "DPF restrictions on some vans"...
Hi, I have a 1996 2.5TDI, 102hp as standard, T4. I took it to a remap 'day' at a local tuning garage but they told me their software wouldn't speak to the ECU due to ECU being so old. I've tried general 'ecu too old for remap' search but not getting any decent info.
Has anyone else experienced...
I had my van remapped from 102BHP by PRT Vehicle Solutions LTD in Royston today.
WOW.. what a difference!!
Paul from PRT was friendly and helpful and the result is amazing. Money well spent!!
I would seriously recommend doing this if you haven't already.
I have a 2007 T32 kombi, 2.5 130hp BNZ engine and had the gasket between the exhaust manifold and turbo replaced about 7 months ago. The DPF filter was also refurbished/replaced at the same time as the mechanic told me that the blocked DPF had caused exhaust pressure to blow the gasket which...
Been a long time lurker on the forum and have just bought a '15 LWB crafter 2.0 bitdi 163 with 28k on the clock. Does anyone have any experience of getting these remapped? I've also got a '13 LWB 143 crafter now having done over 100k, but barely notice any difference in power, and...

I've got a 2010 Caravelle 2.0 bitdi and its giving out a white puff of smoke.
This doesn't happen when the engine is cold, only when it reaches running temp 90. Took it for a run as I thought it might be doing a regen, but it hasn't completely cleared it even after a 40 min motorway drive...
Just had my new to me 2013 180DSG 4motion (50k well looked after) remapped and very happy with the results. Low rev torque is way up and hills are now my friends. Only now on full throttle when the box changes up there is a very noticeable and worrying eeek noise every time the next gear up is...
