Re: South of Ireland remap

I'd be open as to who does the remap... But if we could get 10 or so cars we'd be looking at 25%+ of a discount.

Re: South of Ireland remap

Angel dont remap the JTS so pointless for me. AD do the JTS though so could be tempted if they came over....or I decided to take a trip. Not Much you can get from a NA petrol engine though compared to the turbo diesels

Re: South of Ireland remap

Jano might be tempted with 10 cars but would probably have to do it in Grandons as they are the Auto Delta reps in Ireland. Do one of the guys in the peoples republic want to chase it up as i would be interested. Some of the guys in the east coast run could also be interested!

Re: South of Ireland remap

Well to get AD over you would need a loan of a Dyno, and Angel seem to do generic upload a map rather than actually changing the parameters to suit each and every engine as they are all different. I would guess even with 10 cars it would still work out about the same as a Unichip fitted and mapped by an Irish tuner.

Re: South of Ireland remap

Spoke to ken a couple of years back as i wanted to get my 156 chipped. Said he would need a few cars to make it worth Jano's time to come over. I than rang jano and spoke to him and he confirmed he had being over previously to do a few cars. Do not know of anybody who used him though. Auto Delta may be a bit more expensive than the rest but what they offer is specific to the car you have and not a generic offer

Re: South of Ireland remap

To be honest, once I check my emissions are still are alright after a coil going kaput while back, should that read fine then I would be up for it...cost dependant of course, they are the only team I would let touch the car though. The JTS engine is reasonably specialised. As I said already, Angel cant remap it.

Re: South of Ireland remap

If we could get 8-10 cars I imagine it would be around 275 - 300 euro.

Unichip is a state of the art piggy-back ECU (Engine Control Unit), designed to optimise the tuning of your petrol car in harmony with your existing ECU. Because every UNICHIP is live tuned to your vehicle, you can be sure you're geting the very most out of your car and any modifications you've made to it.


When a car comes from the factory, it's ECU is set up with very cautious settings from the manufacturer, designed to take account of a wide variation in engineering tolerances, driving conditions and environmental factors.

To fine tune each engine off the production line would take more time money and resources than makes sense for the manufacturer.
This is where the UNICHIP comes in. Using the up-to-the-minute tuning facilities of the UNICHIP we can guarantee to give you 100% of your engine's performance 100% of the time. What's more, using our unique modular design UNICHIP can control just about any performance modification you can think of, including Turbochargers, superchargers, nitrous injection, water injection, propane injection, launch control, full throttle gearchanges and much more.


Variable valve timing adjustment
Rev limit adjustment
Boost limit & level adjustment
Dual maps for use with different fuel grades & types
Water Injection
Nitrous oxide progressive injection
Bigger/supplementary injector handling
Variable induction control
Launch control for turbo vehicles
Full throttle gear changes
Road speed limiter removal
Speedo conversion for imports
Shift light
Idle speed stabilisation


Personally for the money I can't see anything this side of a Motec ECU being any better, maybe a VEMS or Gems or Emerald would be on par but I think are more money not many people map I think

Hopefully it will be that cheap If it was I'd be up for it. I personally despise Grandons, I would rather go to AD direct than have them as a middle man as they would want money for it I would imagine. I thought Alsta Autos in Dublin can get AD stuff too but they are rather ignorant too.

Re: South of Ireland remap

OK I'll see what he says anyway and we can decide then. How would we go about the unichip if we went that way? I reckon we should give something a bash anyway if it can be kept around the 300 mark!

Unichip is pricey as it will need to be bought and then fitted and then mapped not nesscarily worth all that if you aren't going to be doing cams etc. The unichip can be bought from Westward engineering and Ai Autosport in the North. They can both fit them. Not sure if there are anymore places that can supply and fit a Unichip. If we can get AD over for the 300 euro mark I will go for it but unfortunetly I can't really see it happening but if he says something like that be cool
