hellloo diy remap!
« on: 15 October 2010, 20:16 »
hi, i've got kwp 2000+ which have used for remapping various diesels... haven't yet done a petrol BUT i was wondering if anyone have been successful with a year 2000 20v turbo? i have many files but dont fancy trying all 26 on my ecu. how many times are the vag ecu's limited for remapping? does anyone have successful WinRAR files for good performance? i will also need the flasher programme that recogises the 20v turbo ecu group..

any help would be appreciated!! :cool:

i wouldnt risk it, there not the greatest tool and give you nothing for recovery.

its the map your paying for anyway, invest wisely, the cd you get with it are really terrible maps, cause a lot of troubles

Doesn't sound like your too confident what to do, it you really want to persue this id spend alot more time doing homework.

You have high risk of causing permanent engine damage, not exactly something to mess about with and learn on the job.

Jeez mate you got some balls to try out DIY remapping I just changed my pants thinking of the probs you could cause to the engine and other stuff.

Are you planning on doing it as a sale item or just for your own personal car?

I cant see much of a problem apart from fuc*ing the ecu up by mapping it to many times.
Also if ur not happy with the mapp after its done u can put the original back on!
for instance done my mates pug 306 hdi eventually got it right and was 150bhp but had to map it about 40 times to get it right!
i dont think id do it on anybodys car if i didnt kno them so mostly for my own use.
