maybe fixit is right - rather than having the dpf removed & ecu remapped to reflect that, by a professional in their field with proven track record of results and reliability, maybe it IS best to do a trial and error bodge it job on your own car, armed with nothing more than a big drill and some dishwasher tablets
Call it what you want, but trial and error is never a bodge when you make notes, test results and develop hypothesis....without which I wouldn't now have a car that performs so much better than it ever could have done before.
You're clearly a 'design it on paper once and only once' kindof guy. Not a fan of iterative practices I guess.
But yet, that's how you learned to make babies old chum
Have you ever heard the joke about the businessman who goes to Hong Kong and plays golf with a customer after spending a night with a hooker...the punchline is 'wrong hole'...
Iterative is the way forward....just ask anyone who remaps cars how many times they had to change their maps....backwards and forwards.....in and out of the garage, so to speak. I'm sure Clogz will vouch for this....endless nights spent trying to find definition files, damos, map hunting...sharing messages with other tuners on forums...then getting their fingers burnt because they failed to consdier the effect of a change they believed was going to be brilliant, but wasn't. Any honest tuner who does it the good old fashioned hard way will say it's true
Manufacturers don't give away their info for free
Tuners only speculate about what will happen when they make their changes, but don't find out the results until they do it. Is that a bodge too ? I wouldn't have said so.
Anybody who shuns iterative design and testing is missing out on a valuable design methodology https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q...y2Gph1uVcIoHtA
