I had my 2.5TDI professionally remapped by Wayne at Chipwizards a few years ago but my friends would be very interested in how these work, how reliable they are and how to fit them.


Thanks

Vwtoy where are the ones available from that you have now? Have you got any more details. I'm a long way from anyone good that could map my van, but something like a chip I could change with a flashed Map already on would be ideal.

You need to have your ecu socketed before you can swap the chips, the original chips are soldered directly to the board they need to be removed and sockets fitting in their place then you can push fit plcc32 chips with the new map written to them.

I have fitted sockets before but they are a bit of a PITA to do.

Or you could install PP0.5 injectors and kill 2 birds with one stone and still have the option to remap for even more...

In my experience with generic performance chips, you get a good wallop more power, but generally a bunch of smoke off-throttle when cruising. Didnt bother me, but the guys behind get grumpy.
