an extra 40 seems a bit high but generally good improvements can be made
with remapping (ask to see the 'before and after' torque curves) ... but at
what cost to the engine? longevity WILL be affected ... how long do you
need your van to last? and how fast do you need it to go!
anything from 10p for a 10K resistor that you patch into your MAF sensor to
fool the ECU into hosing more fuel in ... to £400 for a proper rolling road
remapping by someone who knows what they're doing ...
modern engine management systems are very complicated and are composed of
many interactig maps. It's not really a job for an enthusiastic amateur I'm
afraid ... definately not Plug 'n' Play!
try PC world ;-)
I'd google around some tuning forums for more info in case I'm really out of
date though ...
think Im going to leave it with the proff
he gave me an offer to do a remap incl roadtest
would like to run my clock back just around 3000 miles
My dansih insurence is give me a hard time becouse i have taking one trip to
UK im over the 5000km a year mark (totally unfair they will charge another
300£ a year)
and i have 18 years of no claim
planning to keep the van for a few years more it was more for the fuel EKO
than the extra HP
