That's good advice from Nick.

I work for Elite Remaps, and on the Accord club I've also done the same with some members who want to go the DIY route.  To be honest, the easiest thing to do is to sell the customer the map for their car and let them DIY flash it.

Something like the Galletto 1260 can do a variety of cars, and in addition to my Byteshooter and Kess V2 I keep the Galletto as a good backup tool - it's actually helped out a few times this year with customer cars, and it costs a few quid on ebay.

As Nick has described, you absolutely need to understand each map, and also understand the inter relatonship between each map.  Engine tuning is not about software tuning, you need to understand how an engine works to become a good engine tuner!!

And Diesel tuning is really very different to petrol tuning.  Remember, diesel is a lubricant as well as a fuel.

I've also seen some really bad remaps where we have corrected the sotware - in fact just this week I've tuned a 2006 A4 170bhp with a DPF that actually had maps missing, and the so called tuner had tried to run a DPF delete on it and ended up deleting maps in the process  :rolleyes:

It made me chuckle when I read the OP's comments about thinking the worst he could do was damage the ECU - in fact far from it, the EDC15 and 16 ECU's are totally recoverable, it's near impossible to cause them 'damage' in this way.  But each component you try and tune is at risk if you do not know what you are doing...

Leave it to the professionals mate, a lot of time and investment has gone into perfecting the maps we provide.

thread revival

been playing a bit with my old kwp, but cant get it to read the ecu on my agu, pulled the cluster fuse but still cant get it to work, the dll was for a 7x boot mode, this the right one for agu? i dont think it is but theres nowt else there.

just killing me driving a slow car, want an r-tech remap but still waiting on money, was hoping this would keep me happy for a bit

Only limited tools can do the AGU, even some of the £5k tools cannot do them, the kwp will only do the  me7, not the old motronic 5 systems found in tha AGU.

ah well, was worth a try, not as if ive wasted any money with it.

will hopefully be booking in to see you before the end of the year.

quick question tho, if i were to get you remap my agu, then if i were to fit a k03s at a later date, would i need another map to suit it or is it just bolt on and go?
