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!!!

thanks for the excellent feedback and it was a pleasure sorting the van out.

Anything else we can do just ask.

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 :)

Simple answer is many many engines are simply software downtuned.

Also turbos used on engines are often only requesting only 70% of its safety capability.

I do agree that some remaps from cowboys who simply haven't a clue about custom tuning software can and will have a effect.

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 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.

Yes someone could go through both maps and identify all the maps that control the torque, injection quantity, turbo maps, lambda maps etc etc etc and copy them from a 140bhp software to a 84bhp software and this would give power.

But this would take longer to do that simple tuning it correctly the first time on the dyno (If you know what you are doing)

This morning we custom tuned a VW T5.1 2.0TDI-CR 84bhp vehicle, 82bhp stock and 164bhp tuned. (please see dyno print outs attached)

Standard Power


Custom Tuned - Please note these have a 5speed gearbox over the 140bhp model that has the stronger 6speed so the 5speed we limit the torque in the lower rpm range compared to the 6speed gearbox and then bring torque in nice and smooth, building at the engine speed builds which gives a 100% perfectly tuned rev range (knowing what you are doing is key here)


Yes many vehicles are different with different turbos, injectors, intercooler etc etc so its an answer of knowing your job and understanding what components are used on the engine you are working on.

Even the 225TT engines vary depending on what year / engine code they are, the older APX engine (If I remember correctly) over the BAM engine, also there was some large port heads on AGU (again if I remember correctly) its been many many years since we messed about with these, and unfortunately being an old git I cannot remember all the codes from the top of my head any more.

So this is why its important if you are thinking about having your vehicle tuned is to go to someone who really knows what they are doing and has the background in the field they are working in, instead of getting Joe Blogs with his PCWorld laptop to flash a generic file in he has no idea about.

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?

The 140bhp engine is 100% same as the 84bhp and 102bhp engines in these vehicles, its just the 140bhp has the 6speed gearbox.

Stage 1 tuning will see 165 but with 400Nm of torque at around 2100rpm instead of the 84bhp & 102bhp with the 5speed box only being able to take 340Nm at 2100rpm

Stage 3 with DPF removal and also custom tuning will see 175bhp

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:

I'll pull some of the Dyno computer tomorrow and upload them on here for you.

I'm very slowly updating our website and putting all before and after dyno print outs on our vehicle database, but its very time consuming with having to export them from the Maha LPS3000 dyno computer and then convert them from .pdf docs into .jpeg images.

Definately want to get my 180 sportline tuned... Just need to find the time to get it to martin to work his magic.
