Volkswagen Amarok 2.0 BiTDi Remap
ECU remapped for performance on 22/10/16
Power increased from 180 Bhp to 210 Bhp
Torque increased from 420 Nm to 485 Nm
The Amarok is fast becoming the pick-up of choice and are already getting quite a following. Next year will see the introduction V6 3.0 TDi engine being fitted which really should have come sooner. The 180PS Bi-turbo version is currently the most powerful option available and to be fair isn’t bad but could be better. Our remapping has unlocked the engines true potential giving it the increased torque it deserves and bringing it more inline with its rivals.
The Bosch EDC17C54 ECU does have anti-tune encryption however with our equipment we can still program the new calibration via the diagnostic socket meaning no need for ECU removal. Whenever the software is being read or written the ECU will not communicate on the CAN network within the vehicle. This will always cause DTC’s (diagnostic trouble codes) or fault codes to be stored in the other ECU’s like Anti-lock Braking, Stability Control, Transmission etc. Many of the ECU’s are in constant communication and are sharing information so if one disappears for a while and the relevant information is not being received, a communication DTC will be stored. After the software reading/writing is completed then communication is restored, all warning lights on the dashboard should go out and everything should function as normal. The DTC’s however will remain in the memory until such times as they are cleared. At Blue Flash Tuning the job is not complete until a full system scan has taken place and all DTC’s have been cleared. Why I hear you ask? Imagine if your vehicle developed a fault and was taken in for diagnosis. If the technician saw all of these DTC’s in the memory it could lead them to misdiagnose the fault or at least be testing the networks and ECU’s for faults that aren’t there. Put simply- these ‘red herring’ fault codes can cost the technician time and you money.
This is what you would expect to see on a scan directly after remapping:
And this is what you will see when the job is fully completed correctly:
