I'm just loving mine as is. Has a bit of a delay pulling off but I reckon it's down to the torque converter needing to build up pressure along with the turbo spooling time which isn't going to be great with the standard EGR/DPF setup. Just means I find myself pressing harder on the accelerator to compensate but I've always found that to be the case on auto boxes in general. Non turbo engines will obviously feel smoother as there is no lag but what I'm missing here form all you remap guys is confirmation that a remap will improve the low down grunt that the OP is after. I'm surprised not to hear that he might get good enough results removing DPF etc. Is this not the case?
