Went down to Regal Autosport in Southampton yesterday for my remap. After a 3 hour journey that ended up taking over 5 hours due to motorway traffic around Birmingham I arrived there about an hour later than arranged. I felt the ridiculous journey was worth it as their latest map now includes new DPF regeneration parameters.....all you estate and signum owners will know how good that sounds
I was slightly apprehensive, mostly due to Nutron's constant barrage of abuse in their general direction, but the second i walked through the door I was made to feel at ease. Karen, the lady behind reception greeted me with a genuine smile and immediately came across as both frindly and professional.
I'd asked for before and after runs on the dyno, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I wanted to a baseline to compare the remapped figures to, and sI also wanted to see if the stainless exhaust I had fitted last week had made any real difference.
Very pleasantly suprised, because I've read some reports that Regal's dyno was a bit optimistic to say the least, but my first run came out with 155 BHP and 248 lbft, which was pretty much what I expected. Then after a bit of a wait while EDS did their thing, they loaded the new map and ran my car on the dyno again. They claim to get 200 BHP from this remap, but I wasn't holding out much hope. The remapped run came back with 191 BHP and a whopping 297 ftlb!.
I was qute happy with the 191 BHP to be honest, but as Karen deftly and gracefully relieved me....*ahem*...of a tadge over £500 she explained that she had this map on her signum 1.9CDTi and her dyno run, done a week or so after the remap, showed the elusive 200 BHP. Apparently it's quite normal to have a first run around 190, but as the ECU relearns during the first few miles of driving, the power should increase.
We'll see on Saturday, eh?
So, I'd like to give a hearty to Nutron, and a resounding to Regal. Their slogan is 'Expectations Acheived' - and they more than met mine. I'd have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone.
