“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.

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

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.
