Re: Remap of 159 1.9 jtdm TI
Thanks for the update re dates. I hope there aint 200 alfas parked there and I get a 5 minute remap experience, id prefer the hour and test drive before after and to try different maps, even if this cost more. Here are the replys i got from red dot and angel tuning, hope it answers most of our questions.
For the 159 M-jet we charge £249 + VAT for the re-map carried out on the rolling road with before and after print out.
You will be looking at +45/50bhp and + 55/65 ft/lb torque. The fuel economy will better by 3/5 mpg on the run.
We can send one of our engineer to you to carry out the re-map, but off course no rolling road, it will take approximately 1 Ĺ . The mobile re-mapping service to the Midlands is £249 + VAT.
I would recommend for the re-map to be carried out after the vehicle has covered at least 1000 miles.
The re-map is non detectable by the Main Dealers diagnostic equipment.
We offer engine remapping, the modern version of chipping which is the correct way to safely tune a modern diesel engine and is not a so called “tuning box” which simply dumps more fuel into the engine. With our ECU remapping you get smooth and progressive power, with improved response, that can be tailored to your requirements. Angel Tuning are able to offer tuning services at your location with our mobile tech team, who are fully equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment as well as a wide range of tuning hardware. Whilst we normally book 1-2 weeks in advance for mobile it depends when you book in as we can often get customers in earlier.
Our charge for the 1.9 16v JTDm is £295.00 including VAT. This price includes the engine tuning work to add up to 40bhp, (60lb ft torque) pre and post testing, acceleration testing and travel to your home or workplace.
We would like to state that we are not the sort of company that tries to get the ultimate extra 1bhp at the expense of drivability just to look good on paper nor do we quote the power figures from a single dyno run set up to achieve a short term burst of power to win your business. We know from vast experience what these cars can take long term and our aim is to achieve the best combination of power, longevity, economy and as mentioned, drivability.
Whilst we are unable to give an accurate figure on the improvement in economy after your car has been tuned, most people get between 2-6mpg improvement on diesel vehicles providing your driving style and the speed you drive at does not change! As the engine is running more efficiently, the emissions are actually improved so there will be no problem at MOT time should you have the car at that point.
The ECU remapping we do is physically and diagnostically undetectable. Of all the cars we do, some 75% are either brand new (i.e. pre delivery for dealerships) or under warranty because of the stealth nature of it. However, we do understand owners concerns, which is why we offer a free* “return to standard” for any owner who is concerned about taking their car into the dealership with the modified mapping on.
ECU remapping is fully reversible, which means if you are unhappy with the results on the day, we will return the car to normal and thank you for trying us. After this, we offer a 14 day "cooling off" period** during which you can at least get the chance to test our work over distance and familiar journeys. If once again you are unhappy for any reason, we can either modify what we have done or indeed return the car to standard and give you a full refund. When you come to sell the vehicle we can return the car to standard for you free of charge****.
Will think of going to Red dot Alfa day when cost is known and what type of experince people have had with it. I dont think my car would have covered 1000 miles by then as recommended by red dot!!
