The final word on the BMW 335d remap before she goes – Remaps UK.

By Andy Percival

 

The BMW 335d Remap Project

The truth is after the BMW 335d remap project finishes, we haven’t got a clue where to go now, what’s next or how to better a fully performance Custom tuned remapped BMW 335d!

This has been said many times in the office, a remapped engine tuned BMW 335d remap, is a all things to all men, It’s luxurious, sleek, super quick, economical and a hell of a lot of fun and most surprising of all its a diesel!!

So what do we choose as our next project car? Where do we go from what we consider here at Remaps UK to be the apex tunable diesel currently available in the market, that is the BMW 335d?

If all this is sounding a bit confusing and isn’t making to much sense, then allow us take you back a few months, back to the beginning where it all began…..

A few months ago we decided to finally put our BMW 335d through a full top down engine tune and top of the range live custom remap upgrade, it is worth pointing out that no physical components were changed what so ever in this project, just software modification (ECU mapping and recalibration) in order to achieve the results. This would put the Remaps UK’s  BMW 335d remap to the test and hopefully answer some of the long talked about and unanswered questions. Questions like how much bhp can realistically and safely be unlocked by engine tuning and remapping whilst maintaining good economy and German reliability? How many torques could we unlock? Would it break the dyno? All these questions would need to be answered before we could move on in our lives and move away from the sleepless nights of worrying about all the answers!

Thankfully the answer wasn’t 42 either!

BMW 335d Remap
Strapped down like a Raging Bull!

The first figures that we took from the remap project BMW 335d were the stock ones, in stock form the Remaps UK BMW 335d was an impressive 294 bhp, which was 8 bhp up on the standard BMW 335d figures of 286 bhp, so a thumbs up from BMW there ( to be honest this didn’t shock us as we see this all the time with BMW).

We did a total of 9 runs on the dyno before we decided that, 1, the dyno had had enough, 2, the tyres had also had enough and 3,  we wanted to test the results, in a safe and scientific manner of course!

Each run brought us new data and highlighted new areas we could work on in order to achieve the ultimate remap tuning file and produce a blueprint for the BMW 335d remap.

The finished results were nothing short of staggering, it’s important at this point to highlight a few things, we have no doubt there was a hell of a lot more to give from our newly remapped BMW 335d, but felt that the end result was just enough and would still remain safe and reliable for every day use and for years to come (we will never over tune a vehicle in order to quote high figures to get peoples custom! Remaps UK is  all about quality and power delivery).

Ok, so what figures did we get?

Join us next week.

just kidding, I’ll cut to the chase.

The Final Run For the BMW 335d Remap

On the final run the dyno recorded a max engine power a figure for the remapped BMW 335d of 366.5 (flywheel) bhp and max torque figure 734 nm (541.9ft/lb) !! A stock bhp is 286 and 580 nm!

Nice smooth curves!! @ the Wheel Readings in Green

To put all this into perspective, and we feel it does need to be, take for example a Ferrari f430, this develops somewhere in the order of  465 nm of torque, or a McLaren F1, 649nm, maybe a  Lamborghini Murcielago , which has 660 nm worth of torques under its bonnet. In fact the only realistically priced and semi attainable vehicle we found that came close was the Dodge Viper SRT-10, which has 759 nm of torque, which subsequently  needs an 8.4 litre V10 engine to produce it! Now our little BMW 335d 3.0 l straight 6 pot diesel sounds pretty impressive don’t you think?

Max Eng is @ flywheel reading, same as the manufacturer figures, Lower figure is at wheels

What we have done here at Remaps UK is create a monster, there is no other way to put it, put this thing along side anything short of a super-car and it will honestly without hesitation annihilate it, the performance is biblical, it’s mind bogglingly quick, and to top it all it’s a diesel!  We always knew a detailed and developed  BMW 335d remap was something special, but nothing prepares you for the performance of a remap tuned 335d, especially if it’s a Remaps UK one!

The pull through the gears from standing start is phenomenal  as the waves of torque push you firmly into the seat, third and forth gears are unbelievable, with the now removed speed limiter this thing is capable of 185 mph! Yet drive the car sensibly, which we know is very very hard, and it behaves perfectly, super smooth power delivery  and increased throttle response make it feel like a petrol car,  but with better mpg!

‘As with any BMW, the way the 335d delivers is power and speed is very deceptive, we gasped down at the speedo in shock at how quick things got in our Remapped BMW 335d!’

Which brings us onto this next section of the project.

Economy on the BMW 335d Remap Project?

We filled up the tank on the 335d and recorded a range of 585 miles, and averaged an mpg figure of 38.9. Yes you heard right, 38.9 mpg. All this out of a 370 bhp remap tuned 335d engine! We honestly believe there is not another car in the world that can do this, that performance with that efficiency!

So ,now you see our dilemma, where do we go from here, what else is out there that comes anywhere near to the 335d as an all-rounder.

The short answer is nothing.

Nothing comes even close. BMW have created a fantastic engine with the sleek lines of the E92 coupé to match, and bullet proof German engineering. Remaps UK have taken this image and created a truly unique, one of a kind BMW 335d masterpiece, of which we have grown very very fond of.

This project will be thought of and talked about for many many years to come, I’m sure.

We gonna miss our awesome remap tuned BMW 335d!

The Mighty Range Rover Remap – Custom level Tuning for Sport Vogue HSE

Submitted by Andy Percival – Remaps UK

Range Rover Remap Tuning at Remaps UK

 

 

Here at Remaps UK we always love to get our hands on some nice bits of metal,Range rover remap TDv8

and the new Ranger Rover and Range Rover Sport

never fails to excite!

Whether it’s the Range Rover Sport 3.6 TDV8, Range Rover 3.0 TD6 or the Range Rover 2.7 TDV6, they are all amazing tunable gems!

In January we got to write some bespoke custom level remap engine tunes for all of the above! With both having excellent results!

 

 

The Range Rover Remap 3.6 TDV8, Range Rover 3.0 TD6 &  2.7 TDV6

 

The Range Rover remap on the Sport 2.7 TDV6 returned a final BHP figure of 216 bhp with our custom live performance remap option, and all this came from it’s original stock setting of 188 bhp!! We are already getting customer feedback reports back of fantastic performance increases, removing the all to common flat spot on take of found in the majority of the Range Rover line up, improved efficiency and mpg figures from our customers, who are amazed at the new founded unlocked potential of there beloved Range Rover Sports and Range rover Vogue’s!

The Range Rover remap for the 3.6 TDV8 (range rover sport remap also available), we got to perform our custom bespoke remap upgrade on was over in Chester. This vehicle also got the Remaps UK magic wand waved firmly over it. Once complete the results showed staggering bhp figures of 348bhp, which were easily achieved from this awesome TDV8 engine!  The mid range pull through the gears was truly amazing, allowing the newly remapped Range Rover Sport TDV8 to accelerate cleanly with a vastly improved, clean throttle response, eliminating the often commonly experienced lag low down on take off and an overall feeling of liveliness and brighter power throughout the rev range, this remap is truly a fantastic transformation of an incredible engine.

Initial mpg figures on the TDv8 (when driven sensibly of course! yes we know that’s hard 🙂 showed an increase of 2-3mpg!

 

Two great guys and two equally great Range Rover remap s, made us feel like footballers too!!

 

Thanks from us all here at Remaps UK!

The Remaps UK BMW 335d remap project nears it’s end…

The Remaps UK BMW 335d remap project nears it’s end…

and it’s been emotional!BMW 335d Remap

For those of you have been following the remap story of the BMW 335d remap E92 Coupe, it now approaches the end of its run and also marks the end of all the fun we have had with this truly outstanding vehicle.

Mile after mile the BMW 335d remap gave us smiles!

We covered over 5k miles in our 335d remap project car, from a stock bhp of 286 right through to the performance blend remap which took it to figures to 325bhp. May we also add, that we loved every single mile, every second of it’s 0-60,  in fact we found it very hard to put down the keys, and even harder to sell this on!

The BMW 335d remap Proof is in the pudding or on the dyno!

The final run for the 335d will involve a full day on the rolling road and a final custom race remap tune to really see what the BMW 335d is a capable of, we know from experience that the straight six is a phenomenal engine and that higher figures are more than within the tolerances of the BMW 335d, but as I am sure you are aware, we here at Remaps UK love to get the balance just right in terms of performance and economy. On this remap tune though, we are throwing the rule book out of the window! And i for one can’t wait!!

Watch this space for the final chapter in the life of the remapped BMW 335d by Remaps UK.

We Also Remap engine tune BMW 535d remap, BMW 635d remap, BMW x5 remap and BMW X3 remap!

The Audi A5 3.0 TDi Remap Project begins – Remaps UK

Remaps UK Takes on the Audi A5 3.0 TDi remap

The Audi A5 3.0 TDi Remap project begins…

After waving farewell to the BMW 335d remap Project, The Remaps UK team embark on what will be hopefully yetAudi a5 3.0 tdi remap

another promising and eventful remap engine tuning triumph.

We acquired our new remap project car, the Audi A5 3.0 TDi Quattro Sport earlier this month and initial trials already look promising. With average stock figures (232 bhp), smooth delivery of power, if a little flat in places, the Audi a5 3.0 tdi Remap project looks like it going to be interesting!

The Audi A5 3.0 Tdi Remap project will begin soon and will get the usual Remaps UK attention to detail from the Remaps UK Tuning elite.

Living with the Audi A5 3.0 TDi Remap

We already love the phenomenal grip and traction developed from the Audi A5 3.0 TDi’s Quattro system. This should come in rather useful after the A5 3.0 TDi custom remap has been developed and installed, the traction should help transfer the Audi A5 3.0 TDi Remap power down onto the tarmac!

What’s the Story, BMW 335d Glory – The BMW 335d Remap Project

The Mighty BMW 335d Remap

Well it’s been nearly one month BMW 335d Remap

since Remaps UK took delivery of our new BMW E92 335d and we are mightily

impressed so far with this hot, sleek performer.

You can’t deny that even with stock/standard settings on the ECU the BMW 335d is a force to be reckoned with, putting much more exotic vehicles to shame with it’s awesome twin turbo 3.0 diesel engine power.

So what’s the story so far for the BMW 335d Remap ….

In stock form, from the factory settings, we thought the 335d performed reasonably well, with a slight lag low down of the mark,  great pull through the mid range and ever so slightly lacking at the top end of the rev range, but if were honest this was really being a bit picky!

The average figures for the BMW 335d,  on the mpg and efficiency side were ranging from low 30’s for mixed driving and 38-41 whilst cruising. All in all a very respectable set of results from a vehicle producing a claimed 286bhp with stock settings from BMW.

So what next for the BMW 335d remap project….

We have just finished our first part of the project and started off with the custom written remap option we call ‘the Blend’. This style of upgrade we used on the 335d is a bespoke custom tune that gives the driver the best of both worlds, seeing a marked improvement in mpg and bhp, or the ‘best of both worlds’.

Bang for buck we think our remap option called the ‘blend’ is the best value for money remap option available so far!

So how did the BMW 335d perform after its Remap?

In one word astounding! Like the BMW 330d project we ran before, the difference between stock and ‘the blend’ remap option is fantastic. Zero lag, mid range punch is phenomenal pulling cleanly and strongly right through the rev range with no hint of a flat spot anywhere. Overall Very Very impressive!

MPG figures went up to 36-38 normal mixed driving and saw 48 mpg on motorway runs (we feel these are modest figures as when we tested the 335d we had -8 degrees!!) And all this from a car producing 325 bhp!

The remap option ‘blend’ on the 335d is perfectly placed and developed for everyday driving with a focus on increased performance without the sacrifice of reduced efficiency, this is a very hard thing to achieve and has taken a lot of work to get us there, but the results speak for themselves.

Needless to say, everybody fights for the 335d keys at the end of the working day!!

A Job well done so far…. but we have a lot more to do!

As we right this release we have just finished the fine tuning and development of the new performance fast road spec custom remap and have begun running the upgraded package on our  BMW 335d today!

First impressions are simply stunning!
