Well just had a lovely visit to ecotune.
Was booked in for Saturday for dpf removal and remap, but was at a loose end yesterday so phoned stan at about 10 and asked if there was any chance he could squeeze me in. He got back to me and said he has managed to get me a slot at 3pm. ƒº
So I immediately set off on the 100 mile journey and got there with 30 mins to spare so we managed to get car for dyno run before car was away to get downpipe fitted.
Sam and I were happy as it made what it was supposed to and seemed a very healthy engine.
Car got taken away by sam to his local trusted bmw specialist to get downpipe fitted and DPF removed as he had no space/time to do it at one of his workshops.
Meanwhile I was made to feel at home in his new central heated, sound proofed lounge area. Coffee and sweets on tap along with a fridge to help yourself to bottled water or cans of pop.
Even offered me a burger king which I foolishly refused as I sat the next HOUR watching him eat it.
It was a couple of hours wait but had a 42¡¨ tv on wall and remote in my hands all was well but Stan was more than happy to chat about cars and share his knowledge.
Car returned sounding a lot more throaty and nice turbo spool a lot more vocal.
Stan copied ecu file and started going through it on laptop and tweaking it all to a safe level and customising it all to suit.
Decided on the hand held unit so can change between 2 maps. As I am sharing car with missus so no need on it to be at its peak safe map through week.
So after he changed everything he wanted to we plugged it into port on car and uploaded the ecotune first, very simple to do and pretty fail safe took all of a few minutes. That map made 294bhp atw so all was good!
Then he uploaded the maxitune and he dyno¡¦d that which made 314bhp atw. So very impressed with figures.
So it was test drive time¡K
Sadly it damp to say the least but Stan gave it WOT a few times to make sure everything was ok and my god does it shift, its ridiculous. And sounds soo much better almost like a petrol variant, certainly from inside the cabin.
If you have any doubts or queries then I would suggest giving eco tune a call yourself am sure your needs will be filled!
