remapping to get what result? are you after more fuel economy? or more power?

If I had the money and time to go somewhere reputable, I'd get my 2.2 5 door remapped.

I wouldn't personally bother re-mapping to try and save money via better fuel economy.

If you want more power the results speak for themselves though!

My friend had his peugeot diesel remapped, it came with power gains AND better fuel economy...

if he drove it the way he always used to, it would have given him better economy but because it was now "more powerful" he drove it like a race car and got the opposite result lol.

Get it remapped, it will transform the car (for the better).

The only snag is, that you'll need to factor in a new clutch

The "better fuel economy" was likely his trip computer over reading because of the remap. There are options for the 2.2. Most go for a Stage 1 or a Stage 2, but Celtic Tuning do an Eco map, that is a bit less power than the Stage 1.

True, the 'puters tend to over read as standard and get a few % worse after a remap.

Since going EGR, off my economy has consistently been higher, using tank to tank calcs. Provided I don't hoof it all the time I'm not sure if everyone would see an improvement with EGR off, or if it just confirms that my valve was on the frtiz.

From the wiki...

"The MPG gauge on the onboard computer can over-read by 3 mpg or so."

My experience, after having a stage 2 remap and doing tank-to-tank calculations, was that my trip was overreading by about 11%.

This...




...was actually 69.7. Still well happy.

NB That was with an EGR on remap. Oh, and btw, current stage 3 map, with hybrid turbo and EGR off is returning not much more than 40 mpg.

you managed 78 MPG from a mapped diesel... my uncle managed 77 from his factory fresh mapped diesel.

dont see the point in remapping an engine, you have to factor in premature clutch and turbo wear... keeping it standard is a 'cheaper' option in my eyes

Each to their own. Anyways, I have a Competition Clutch twin plate and a hybrid turbo.


If I wanted "cheap" I'd of bought an Aygo or a Smart.

I reset my counter when I got the brakes fitted and it's sitting at 43mpg. Used to be at 41 before the reset, but I'm pretty sure a hybrid turbo isn't to blame! Wish it was!!

Indeed! Modifying a car is never going to be cheap! But if you enjoy it, the money is well worth it!

Just gotta do it right to reduce excess costs!

Indeed.

Do it right, do it once, unlike a lot of us.

Second clutch upgrade, second brake upgrade, and third remap !
