“ready for the weekend”

Another busy weekend for Rapid Remapping. Having worked my magic on some interesting vehicles at the beginning of the week. I had the honour of working my remapping magic on these 3 awesome cars, each one was different type of tuning, all with the same strong performance tunes, with unmatched reliability developed into each tune.

With an early start of 8.30 a 2008 Volvo D5 185bhp, these are one of my most favourite cars, the D5 is an awesome engine, reliable, powerful and has loads of torque. The customer wanted more of everything, so a performance tune was in order.

 

With this Volvo, they have hidden the ECU under the panel, under the wipers.

I had to remove ECU because to stop people like me tuning the ecu, they remove the K-Line lead from the ECU, so I carefully and expertly drilled a small hole in the main ECU wiring block and insert my probe to connect the ecu, then connected the power and started reading off the software to make changes to it, re-installed the software, checked the make sure the car ran as sweetly as before.

Rebuild the wiper panel and tuck the ecu back in to bed, after a quick roadtest the client was more than happy with the additional 40bhp (wa 185bhp now 225bhp) and increased torque of 85nm over standard, after a few tanks of diesel the MPG should show an increase of around 8-12mpg depending on his driving style.

 

 

Next I was off to Bulford/Tidworth Barrack’s the place where heroes are trained and developed (having a father in the Royal Marines, and have spent many years as Royal Marine Youth Cadet), I have so much respect for the armed forces and makes me think of the one who havent come home.

This Lance Corporal wanted his Seat Ibiza FR, to keep up the the Cupra’s around the area so starting off the 150bhp, this was a simpler to read and write, straight through the OBD Port. So with a Performance Tune requested it gain an increase of 30bhp and 60nm of torque. 180bhp from a 1.4 TSi engine.

Next was a Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 CDTi these are the trickiest to read, due to the anti tune software installed on these means you have access the ECU board, and probe straight on to it. But due to a technical issue it wouldn’t read off, time for some diagnostics and email to technical but alas they were closed. So sealed it up and come back another day with the problem fix and to give it another go.

We all know Hardware and Laptops mess around sometimes.

 

More pictures to come as it is only saturday ………

Up the tempo

What a week its been busy travelling all over Hampshire and Berkshire, making people happy and reinvigorating their cars, van’s and a jet ski

 

The SeaDoo was first.

Its a 2015 SeaDoo RXT-X, this required the ECU to be removed from the engine, bay opened up to get to the right connectors, and get ready to read the file off, when I got the file off located the GPS Limiter, RPM Limiter and Throttle Ratio and made some adjustments, removing the GPS limiter so now it can reach top speed, increased the RPM Limiter to a safe 8450rpm, throttle ratio was adjusted to 1:1 ratio, upped the boost and sorted out  fueling/ignition tables to suit, gaining around 15bhp and 20nm of addtional torque!

Next was a 2014 Transit Custom 2.2tdci

This also required the ECU removal, Opening and going straight on to the ECU again, accessing the ECU required the drilling out the security bolts holding the ECU on.

Then we read of the software on the ECU, adjusting the boost pressure and the fueling to suit. Giving it a healthy 30bhp and 60nm of torque.

“Hi Liam, I just wanted to say thank you for coming over and remapping my van.( I hope you didn’t get frost bite! )
Too soon to find out mpg gain but performance wow!
I filled up with diesel, and I had all my tools and materials for the next job and this thing is flying!
Thank you”  A review from the owner of the Transit Custom…..

 

Also I did a fantastic Italian hot hatch Fiat Grande Punto Arbarth, pictures to come.

I also had a 530d come in for a Performance Tune, and he was more than with the power and extra fuel economy.

Great work by Liam .the car is quicker and gain 10 miles per gallons .
Win win situation ,

Thanks again .  A review from the owner of the BMW 530d

Power Issue’s

Tuning gone wrong, tuning issues? Great care is taken at Rapid Remapping to ensure all our tuning and ecu remapping is of the very highest quality, our tuning  needs to deliver complete satisfaction in every case. But, sadly not all tuners and remapping services are the same ? In fact some are really quite terrible, its easy to make a great website that promises the earth, but sadly all too often customers only find out the tuning and remapping is not all it is cracked up to be after the tune is installed.

Tuning not quite what you were expecting?

Car tuning dealers also get mislead, being promised great tuning files, and great service from their tuning partners ? Only to find out the service is poor, the tuning files don’y work, or the back up and support is not all it was meant to be.

This can give the tuning industry a poor reputation, smoking cars, cars with flats spots, hesitation, poor running, warning lights on, and in the worst case cars that don’t start at all!

 

I purchased this thing on e-bay and now my car will not start? sadly yes, this happens every single day.  Do not panic – we are here to help, genuinely ? we are here to help!

 

If you have been a victim of poor tuning, have a car that is not running, or not performing correctly after tuning and remapping, and your tuner can’t or will not assist we can help.

All this is free for an initial inspection and ECU read.

Please feel free to email rapidremapping@gmail.com or call 07940462224

DIY Camper

Last night went out to do tune on a  Ford Transit, being converted to a camper, it was fantastic the owner had created an area for a double bed above the cab, and talking about his plans to travel Europe with his girlfriend and go mountain biking all over, as well as visit his extended family.

His need for a tune, was to help the van cope with the additional load he would be carrying as well as getting the additional MPG. The results are fantastic with another very happy client with around 40bhp additional power, and torque up around 75nm.

I also fitted a K and N Air Filter, to help with the breathing side of things

Service’s

I provide unique and custom ecu tuning for your pride and joy. I understand that your need’s change and yet your car doesn’t then meet those needs in terms of power, economy or both. So getting these things back, with out the effort in looking and changing your car for something I can do.

I provide 2 different forms of tuning.

OBD Tuning: The most common form of ECU tuning. Using the latest software and hardware, and files written in the UK. I take a read file of the current ECU software, then ask what you the client needs from your car, ie: more power, and I tow a caravan, so can I have a bit more power and in the mid range area, these get written back on to the ECU, and the results are instantaneous mondeo

BDM Tuning: This stand for Background DeBug Mode, which require
s the ECU to be removed, opened and interfacing directly on to the ECU board, again using the latest and safest tuning tools, I can do this with accuracy and safety. This is usually the case with more modern hardware/software which have been designed with AntiTune software built in.
