I wouldn't mind a little more power from the beast that is our 72BHP 1.4HDI Pluriel engine. Re-mapping seems like an affordable option to add a claimed 10-12BHP and apparently brings potential fuel efficiency benefits too. What's not to love for around £140. Which got me thinking; there has to be a downside to this topic I know nothing about.
Our car is a 2008 Pluriel 1.4HDI. 102k on the clock with a full service history from new.
- If I had the re-mapping done, is the engine going to explode in six months time?
Are there "different types" of mapping service to use / avoid?
Doe anything else need changing after the re-map (different filters, leads....?)
Thanks in advance.
The few members that have had a remap have been pleased.
Yes, avoid the cheap or free remaps that have no support or any come-back. Go for a reputable company and read the feedback, trustpilot etc.
There are different re-maps, ones for more torque, ones for more power, ones for lots more power but needs better cooling etc.. Pick the one that is right for you. Some are more tailored to your car, some are just bog standard changes.
The basic re-maps don't require any extra parts, but, new plugs and coils and air filters wouldn't do any harm while the power is being increased.
Let us know which one you go for and who you choose to do it
