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:

The owner of this 2004 Discovery 3 felt it had lost its spark and needed a bit life breathing into it. After carrying out a full diagnostic check of the engine to make sure there were no faults affecting it’s performance, we applied our performance remap and the owner was soon smiling again.

Despite the usual common issues like sticking EGR valves, the 2.7 TDV6 is a popular engine for remapping and always responds well.
The Siemens SID 201/204 ECU can be remapped via the diagnostic socket in relatively short time making it a must for any Jaguar & Land Rover owners. Even with the performance map we see good gains in MPG too!

The Skoda Superb is somewhat of an underated car. This 2012 model is built on the VAG A6 chassis. Underneath it’s basically a VW Passat and is are a very spacious car inside, particularly in the back.

The 4×4 system does tend to zap a degree of the engine torque and as this one is used for towing the owner was looking for a little bit more power, torque and to improve the fuel consumption.

This car was equipped with the later bosch EDC17C46 ECU so we were able to write the modified software to the ECU via the OBD port.
