Range Rover Sport 3.0 SDV6: Remap to solve turbo lag.

Range Rover Sport 3.0 SDV6 in today. This customer phoned up telling a story we’ve heard too many times. The SDV6 having such a large amount of lag off the line its dangerous and Land Rover having had the vehicle back numerous times and unable to resolve the issue.

Problem is they can’t fix it at the dealership. The problem lies with inherent issues with the stock maps even on the latest Land Rover software update.

Thankfully we have developed a performance tune that combats this problem and provides a hugely more responsive drive, as it should have been from factory.

Audi RS4 B7 Remapping

Great to receive positive feedback from customers. This Audi RS4 had our performance software installed recently, and the customer gave us some positive feedback via Instagram! Previously tuned elsewhere and not running how it should, this RS4 is now running our bespoke Engine software.

Mercedes C63 AMG Engine & Gearbox Development

C63 AMG Performance Pack Remap

Today we’ve been performing development work on this stunning Mercedes C63 AMG. The car had previously been tuned elsewhere (Engine Remap only) and the customer came to us looking for more as he felt it wasn’t running to its full potential.

Firstly we strapped the C63 down onto the dyno and performed a couple of 4th gear runs with our Lambda probe inserted into the exhaust to get accurate Air Fuel Ratio (AFR). The results showed an AFR of 10.6 which is much richer than we would expect the car to be running.

The next step was to flash our Engine ECU and Gearbox TCU performance software onto the car. Our C63 AMG performance remap software makes changes to fuelling and ignition along with torque limiters and shift strategies in the gearbox control module to provide some quite staggering results. The results on the dyno whilst impressive, considering this car was already tuned, are only half the story. Massively quicker gear shifts and much quicker torque convertor locking really let this C63 launch off the line far quicker than it did before. The graph below shows the gains at the wheels with our software installed, along with the vastly improved AFR.

The Engine and Gearbox software whilst having had some adaptation time on the dyno, will now continue to adapt over the next few hundred miles on the road. The ECU and particularly TCU will continue to adapt and we fully expect a few more horsepower and even better shift speeds once there is some mileage on the car.

If you’re interested in our C63 AMG Engine and Gearbox tuning solutions, do give us a call on +44 (0)1795 342006 or email info@jrtuning.co.uk. We can supply C63 AMG performance software worldwide through the use of our hand-held OBD flash tool, allowing us to post out a tune to you for you to install in a matter of minutes. We can even tailor the software to include corrections for different exhausts or headers (etc)… or even better, book us for some dyno time here in Kent and see the results for yourself!

BMW X5 3.0D Dyno Remap Tuning ECU Flash

BMW X5 3.0D Dyno Run

Today we have been tuning a BMW X5 3.0D. These BMW X5’s have a claimed stock power of 232bhp from factory and our initial dyno run showed 230bhp so bang on the money. We then proceeded to install our BMW X5 Performance ECU Remap and the car then produced 282bhp and significantly more mid-range torque really transforming the drive. Whilst this customer didn’t opt for our stage-2 tuning which offers even stronger gains by remapping the BMW X5 Gearbox TCU these are still very impressive gains! Our Stage 1 BMW X5 Engine ECU remapping prices at £360 including VAT and our Stage 2 (Engine and Gearbox) prices at £795 inc VAT. Call us today to arrange your BMW X5 tuning on +44 (0)1795 342006.

Mercedes A45 AMG Tuning

We are pleased to announce we can now offer tuning for the Mercedes A45 AMG.

We offer two tuning options for the A45 AMG. The first is engine tune only, which offers power gains of 52bhp and 110Nm torque and really transforms the A45 AMG from being quick to seriously fast. The second option is Engine & Gearbox tuning. Adding a gearbox tune to your A45 AMG offers increased mid-range torque thanks to recalibration of the 7 speed twin clutch transmissions control unit, faster gear shifts and faster reaction to paddle shift inputs.

To discuss A45 AMG tuning in more detail, please contact us on +44 (0)1795 342006 or email info@jrtuning.co.uk.

Audi A3 1.8T Remap with K04 Turbo

Audi K04 Turbo Tuning

Audi A3 1.8T with K04 Turbo

This Audi A3 1.8T 20V suffered an oil pump failure which killed off the original turbo.
The customer, much to our approval, decided to replace the standard K03 turbo with a K04. As the car hadn’t been remapped, the net result was a car that didn’t drive well at all, as the levels of boost where all wrong for the turbo fitted.

The customer booked the car in with us and we installed our elite ‘race’ remap onto the vehicle so the K04 turbo now boosts properly. The net result is 230bhp with buckets of torque anywhere in the rev range and one very happy customer.
