Hi, going to get my T5 84bhp pendled next wednesday (29th Aug 12) morning can't wait to see the difference, read so many positive results on the forum!!!A:
thanks for the excellent feedback and it was a pleasure sorting the van out.Well what can I say that hasn't been said about a Pendle remap already?
Absolutely blew me away, got my 84 up to 142 with just over 330 of those tourque things and it’s a different van, smother, much much much quicker and even better on juice when driven respectfully.... unbelievable!
Would well recommend without a second thought!
BIG THANKS to Pendle!!!
Simple answer is many many engines are simply software downtuned.hello from a newbie
how can it be that a post-factory remap increases power, torque and fuel consumption a the same time? what do you have to give up for those?
i am sure ze dschermann engineers in wolfsburg must know what they are doing when programming the engine in the factory?
i used to work at BMW R&D years ago and engines with same capacity but different power are built slightly differently (more powerful engines are built to cope with more power, like the piston protection coat is thicker...)
of course a van with more power is going to feel better and smoother, but i'm not sure it's healty for the engine in the long run...
my guess is that the remap will shorten the life of the engine (as all remaps traditionally do...)
just a spontaneous question
The software versions in these vehicles are completely different, if you flashed a 140bhp 2.0TDI-CR file into a 84bhp engine it would not run.I've seen it often quoted that all the t5 engine derivatives are the same bar the 180. If this is the case then why do they need custom tuning at all, can't an 84 just be reflashed with a 140 map, given everything is otherwise identical. If they are identical you think this would be a routine and simple operation. I'm genuinely interested to know if their are any differences. I know my old 225bhp TT had significant difference between the 150 and 180bhp derivatives even though the block was the same, intercoolers, exhaust system and even turbo sizes were different.
The 140bhp engine is 100% same as the 84bhp and 102bhp engines in these vehicles, its just the 140bhp has the 6speed gearbox.What sort of figures would I see from my 140 t5.1? I've been thinking about getting in touch with brummy to ask about getting the van Pendled. What are the dissadvantages if any of not having te van on te rolling road?
I'll pull some of the Dyno computer tomorrow and upload them on here for you.Very interesting to see different graphs A:
What a difference in the two the new graphs looks super job
Would you have before and after Martin for the 180??
Sorry to jumping folks , but this is very interesting,
tuners not keen sometimes to show us there work as is Martin T:
