Remap Problems – The Hidden Truths Behind the Remap Engine Tuning Industry

Remap Problems, cause and effect ?

Remap problems press release.

In an already overly saturated market place the Remap Engine Tuning industry has already seen its fair share of winners and losers, from catastrophic engine failure to minor niggles, all are most unwelcome in the Remap Engine Tuning Arena.

With so many companies out there it is Very difficult to know where to even start, never mind who you choose to trust to remap your £50,000 new motor car.

With many new companies popping up almost over night, it can be a real mine field out there.

Get it wrong and it could leave you sat on the hard shoulder in a cloud of black smoke with your head in your hands wondering what happened and where you went wrong. Remap Problems

One company out there is claiming it wants to try and change all this and try to reinstall some confidence back into what is a great industry, the company is called Remaps UK.

Based in Cheshire Remaps UK is a custom remap engine tuning company based in the North west of England, providing a mobile engine tuning service across the UK . They consider themselves the experts when it comes to economy and custom written performance remap engine tuning. From economy to race Remaps UK can custom write ant spec of file you require!

‘Remap Problems – Remapping isn’t easy, it’s a specialist skill’.

Company owner and technical director, Andy who has been involved in the tuning, programming and automotive industry for the last 20 years was asked about his experiences from within the remap tuning industry and about his experiences with remap problems, he said “I have lost count of how many calls I get a month from customers who have picked price over product and found themselves with a car that won’t start or even worse a blown engine…” he went on to say “ This really is a highly skilled industry with far to many individuals setting up shop, buying the kit from a particular ‘online’ auction site with a disk full of various generic remap files, building a website and buying a ‘Pay & Go’ mobile phone and now consider themselves a Remap Engine Tuning Expert…and the thing is, they are getting away with it. Walking away with your money, leaving the unlucky ones out of pocket with a broken car sat on the drive and a bunch of remap problems and vehicle issues to sort out…it really isn’t on!”

Pushed further about the remap engine tuning industry and remap problems Andy revealed some shocking stories of customers who have contacted Remaps UK with there remap problems and experiences. Andy also spoke about customers Remaps UK have worked with to help get back on the road, he said “ we had one particular customer, really nice gentleman who called Remaps UK for a performance remap engine tuning quote, he stated he had found a cheaper company who would do the work for him, after explaining how we do things here at Remaps UK, explaining all our remap files are live and custom written on the day and are not a generic file, that we also have a £2 million Royal Sun Alliance backed warranty and that all our files are created by us, developed by Remaps UK here in the UK, he still chose to use the Alternative cheaper company” he continued “ a week later the same customer contacted us here at Remaps UK stating that the remap engine tune that was done by the other company wasn’t a total success, in fact the whole ordeal was a complete failure, resulting in the vehicle not starting at all!” he added “the said remap company, allegedly remap tuned the car, which was in fact an 2008 Audi A6 2.0 TDi 140 bhp, then told the customer it needed to reboot and would take 30 minutes to complete, took the customers money and left the premises…the customer tried the vehicle, which then failed to start, tried to contact the said company and found the number was out of service and within hours the website shut down and gone!”

Andy at Remaps UK went on to explain, stating “ The customer was understandably in some distress about the whole ordeal, he was also annoyed that he’d allowed this to happen and wondered how he’d ended up with these remap problems” , he went on to explain “the previous remap tinkerer had totally fudged up the remap, pushing a generic file onto the ECU (after analysis we found the file that had been written was for a totally different engine code and model which created the remap problem for the customer!) we had to do a total rebuild of the ECU from scratch….” and added “ luckily for the customer we’re probably one of the only few remap engine tuning companies in the country who have the expertise to do this and what’s more we stood by our initial price quoted, even though our work was doubled…we felt it was important to go the extra mile for the customer without the extra cost, plus he’d already had enough problems for one week, it was now up to us to put the smile back on his face…we think he learnt his lesson ”, “ needless to say the customer was over the moon with the finished result and no more remap problems, he was also and very, very, thankful if somewhat a little embarrassed ”

Other remap problems are also common place he went on to say “ we have visited cars with the wrong map installed, we found a remap file for an Audi 1.9 tdi on a vehicle that should have had an Audi 2.0 tdi file, a Mercedes Benz SL55 amg with a remap file for a SL500, the list goes on, but one thing the customer probably wouldn’t find out about is the fact that we have had previously remapped vehicles in that have had the vehicle immobiliser codes erased! Which means anyone with a key could start your car” he added “we even had a BMW 330d which had been previously remapped by another company, the customer still had the flat spot in the rev range that he wanted removing in the first place, when we analysed his ECU we found no upgraded had been installed whatsoever even though he’d paid for one! Now that’s just a ridiculous exercise in maximising profit at any expense, this really annoys and angers us here at Remaps UK, and is potentially damaging what is inherently a great industry”

Remap Problems & Dangers – with great power comes lots of problems!

This story is becoming all too common, but what is being done to stop it? How can this be avoided in the first place, we asked Andy what the future of remap tuning was likely to be and what Remaps UK as a company were doing to bring back customer confidence. He said “ Good honest business, in short, we invest heavily into our equipment which allows us to produce and develop what we consider the highest quality remap engine tuning files available” he also added “through painstaking hours of testing we have come up with and un locked some of the most hard to tune vehicles out there in the industry, with fantastic results…improved economy, reduced carbon footprint and increased performance, these are all achievable with a reputable Remap Tuning company”, “ the key to good remap tuning is time invested and experience gained through rigorous testing anRemap Problemsd development, which all in all costs money, without the investment, we could not produce the high calibre remap files that we do” , ”with big advances in Engine management technology the new breed of remap tuning is becoming more and more intricate, you really need to know what you are doing, ask questions to see how far the Remap Engine tuners knowledge goes, what the tuners background is? How long have they been in the remap engine tuning industry? all really simple things, but rarely get asked once the customer has been offered the deal of a lifetime and more bhp than a Veyron! If the deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is” he added “ or course, ultimately the choice is down to the customer, you have the right to choose, just make sure it’s the right choice”

So what started out as an insight into the dark and gloomy world of Remap Engine tuning and remap problems,  looks set to be a brighter place, with the right company, if chosen carefully?

Andy went on to explain “ the benefits of remap tuning far out weigh the minority of budget end low grade remap tuners out there creating the majority of remap problems…” he continued by saying “with a high quality remap upgrade customers can expect increased throttle response, better fuel economy, reduced carbon emissions, better performance and smoother power delivery, just make sure you pick a company you are comfortable with and you will become a happy member of the remap tuned vehicle club and not the remap problems one!”

Remap’s UK Update on the Audi VW Remap for the 2.0 TDi’s

VW Remap

Remaps UK 0845 269 4064

New Remaps UK VW Remap & Audi Remap Upgrades

With the new year bringing in new ECU’s from Audi and VW, the 2.0 TDi engine just gets better and better, that is after it’s been remapped of course by Remaps UK!

With more newly developed Audi VW remap upgrade option to choose from, Remaps UK has now categorised it remap options it to 3 different groups.

The Economy option, this remap option has a pure focus on mpg improvement, included in this Audi VW remap will be a smoother power delivery with reduced flat spots, increased throttle response and a small increase in BHP and torque from standard, we also remove the speed limiter as standard on all our remap upgrades, whichever one you choose. This is a great choice for anyone wanting to improve on the standard manufacturers remap ECU settings.

Audi VW Remap Choices

The second option is the Audi VW remap upgrade we aptly named the Blend, this has proven to be the most popular remap upgrade with Remaps UK customers so far. The blend remap option still maintains a focus on economy with the introduction of a performance twist to give you more mid range pull, which comes in handy for overtaking etc..
All the same benefits are included as the Economy remap option with the added bonus of extra BHP and torque, which can equate to an average increase of 20%!

Save the best Audi VW Remap Option untill Last

Then we move on to the performance Audi VW remap upgrade option, this remap upgrade still considers the economy, but its focus is now primarily on performance. MPG figures should remain the same as stock figures, and should only see a minimal reduction under hard or vigorous driving! The results of the performance leave everyone with a smile on their face.

After these options we get into the Audi VW remap Performance Plus arena, and then onto race and track spec remaps, of which we are more than happy to provide.
As with all of our remap upgrades, all are custom made for your vehicle on the day we visit you, nothing is ever ‘off the peg’ so rest assured your remap upgrade is of the highest quality available anywhere in the UK, with no corners cut, no expense spared and is totally unique to your vehicle and only your vehicle!
This is the way we operate our business and is the reason why Remaps UK is probably the best remap tuner in the world 

Latest Remaps on VW 2.0 TDi remap and Mercedes Benz 320 CDi – Remaps UK 0845 269 4064

The VW 2.0 TDi Remap and Mercedes Benz 320 CDi Remap

Last month was certainly a busy one with remaps including a performance remap on a E320 cdi Mercedes Benz, a remap performance economy blend on a VW Passat 2.0 TDi Remap 140, a full performance remap on a Peugeot 206 GTi 180, A host of remaps for a VW Golf GTi 2.0 TFSi and VW Golf 2.0 TDi 140 & 170 bhp models.

VW 2.0 tdi remap & Mercedes Benz 320 CDi remap with Fantastic results

The Mercedes Benz E320 CDi gave back fantastic results showing a fantastic increase in bhp of 50!! Taking it to a whopping 272 bhp! The customer needless to 320cdisay was over the moon with his new founded performance and his ability to keep up with the M3 on his weekly run back up the M6! Watch out for the speed cameras John!

Custom VW 2.0 TDi Remap

The economy/ performance remap on the VW Passat 2.0 TDi remap 140 bhp diesels always respond to our live custom remap well, great performance increase of 40 bhp and mpg figures showing an early increase of 6 mpg average. Customer reports of zero flat spots, incredibly smooth power delivery, much more drivable due to better engine and throttle response and a firmly pinned child in the baby seat!

The performancePeugeot 206 gti 180 remap on the Peugeot 206 GTi 180 bhp was a great opportunity for us here at Remaps UK to really show of our tuning expertise on a normally aspirated highly tuned vehicle.

The results , needless to say were fantastic, the customer reported on how the car now felt like 3rd gear was now more like 2nd gear due to the increased throttle response and lively feel to the vehicle. With the Peugeot now pushing close to 200 bhp after the remap, it’s certainly made an already quick car even quicker!

We certainly get to see a fair few VW Golf’s here at Remaps UK and we most definitely enjoy tuning and remapping them. The VW Golf 2.0 TDi 140 bhp and VW Golf 2.0 TDi 170 bhp have fantastic results after we’ve performed our remap magic on them!

The  performance remap on the VW Golf 2.0 TDi 140 never fails to put a smile on the customers face, I think they are genuinely shocked by the difference, this particular customer couldn’t afford the VW Golf 2.0 TDi 170 bhp version and loved the way it drove. After taking his newly remapped VW Golf 2.0 TDi 140 for a spin, on his return with the all too familiar big grin on his face said it all, with his new remap on the VW Golf 2.0 TDi 140 now pushing out 196 bhp he certainly wasn’t thinking about the VW Golf 2.0 TDi 170 any more!

And finally the remap on the VW Golf  GTi 2.0 TFSi DSG on a performance remap. We love the 2.0 TFSi, whether in the Audi  or the VW, this engine is truly vw 2.0 tdi remapastounding. With figures easily reaching 250 bhp this engine is heavily down tuned in standard form. The customer was shocked at the finished remap of the VW Golf  GTi 2.0 TFSi DSG. He commented on the reduced turbo lag and mid range punch being unbelievable. He even gave us a call a week later claiming it was getting quicker by the day.

Many thanks to you all for your custom and also for allowing us to carry out our remap tuning upgrades on your vehicles, we wish you many happy miles of improved driving.
