Thumbs Up AHM Re-map heaven :)

Had the DPF EGR delete Re-map on my 1.9 ti 150 done today and to say i am best pleased is an understatement.

Adie is a great bloke and obviously knows what he is doing.

Dropped of in the morning and collected after lunch...

Results:

Showed 164 bhp standard pre-map
Now has 206 bhp

torque was 273 lb/ft
torque now 338 lb/ft

It has truly transformed the car and on the drive home the silky smooth power is instant and pulling out of junctions is now easy with no hesitation and over taking is sit back and apply the loud pedal.

I recommend it to any one...gotta love torque

Thankyou AHM

Congrats AlexG!

Do you have a dyno graph you're willing to share? I think there will be a fair few interested people...

Happy motoring!

alfa 33 2.0 race

Some 2006 and all 2007 2008 150 bhp GT AND 147 1.9 jtds
show around 170 bhp on my rolling road
the Ducati also shows 175 bhp
Q2 GT 175 bhp

the older cars say 156/147 1.9 150 show around 150 bhp
the 140s show around 140 bhp

159s The 1.9s seem to read around 160 165 bhp
2.4 200 shows around 200
2.4 210 shows around 210

and so on
so you can see that some cars have more then listed figures
and some dont

We see alot of these cars a lot brand new so im quite happy
with the results

Infact I rolling road some race cars with engines that have just come off the
engine dyno to make sure mixture etc are ok when fitted in the car
we are in most cases with in 5 bhp of the dyno

hope this helps

Have to agree a very good place to get stuff done and the remap is great. Fully recommended.
I did have an issue with an engine cover that I'm sure adie will remember (never worked that one out - bought a new one for £50) but saying that i would still go back. They really know their stuff, do an efficient job and do it well.

My 2.4 210 really is easy to live with now, pulls smoothly including from junctions and has plenty of poke. About 260 ish on a 210 never got any results just turned up paid and grinned a bit on way home.

Still enjoying the car six months on and will keep it for a bit now.

Great results AlexG123.

Its not unheard of for some turbo diesels to make more than the manufacturer's claims.

Think some 147s and GTs did have dpfs on the continent, not UK though.

thanks folks.

might splash out on a EGR delete and remap next year once the (frankly worthless) dealer warrenty is out.
and Eibach ARBs
and Konis
and new speakers
and new tyres
and if theres any change left a Ducati bike to go with it ;-)

Early 2.4 had 200 bhp and from later 2007 they had a different engine that gives 210 bhp and maps a bit better by all accounts.

I had a very similar map on my GT, slightly lower torque figure, but mpg (based on trip computer) increased from low 40's to high 40's (low 50's on motorway runs). I know the computer is not absolutely accurate but certainly indicates improved mpg. I drive the car hard and put the improved economy down to staying in higher gears for longer and using the extra torque.

No, same engine, but turbo changed from a KKK to a Garrett.

Hi just got back from hols. sorry for late reply.

great drive to south of france for 2 weeks...

As an indication i filled up to the brim and reset the trip for the 700 mile return trip to dover with cruise at 110 - 130kmh on auto routes all the way and made it to 642.5 miles when the buzzer went just as 50mile range dissapeared. i bottled it and filled up.

the trip said i averaged 60 mph and averaged 54.3mpg i am aware that there are various calculations you can do to work out mpg but to get almost 700 miles to a tank i am happy.

i am yet to have a "normal" weekly commute to see how it fares but it is looking good....

great stuff, alex. another happy customer for the gus/adie massive

i've just been to the south of france in mine as well, but only averaged about 43 to the gallon there and back (car computer said about 46/47 avg)- i had a massive great roofbox on with all the aerodynamic qualities of a barn door though
