  1. T4 2.5 tdi auto remapping

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi guys, 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...

  3. Remap 2.5 4motion for fuel economy?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi there 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...
  4. remap 2.5 AJT

    Engine & Gearbox
    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?! I...
  5. injector change Vs remap

    General Technical
    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...
  6. Kingmaps Engine Remap

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...

  8. Does a removed remap show on the diagnostics history?

    General T5 Technical
    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...

  10. Remap specialists in Scotland?

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hello all 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"...
  12. ECU too old for remap on 1996 2.5TDI 102bhp

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...

  14. EGR blanking dilema

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...

  18. T5.1 White smoke after software update over Pendle remap

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, 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...
  19. Remapped 180 dsg. Strange noise on upshift!

    Engine & Gearbox
    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...
  20. Remapping T5 1.9 84bhp to 140bhp - good idea or bad idea?

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all, This is my first post so let me introduce myself. I have just bought a 2007 T26 SWB 1.9l 84 and plan to convert it to full camper over the next few years. Being 84bhp is feels very underpowered so have decided to remap it. I've been advised by the conversion company I'm working with...
