    Default Opinions on DIY Re-map?

    just bought a disc off ebay OBD1&2 with remap software
    anyone got any views on this diy diagnostic software and
    engine remapping?

    anyone had any experience on this and could point me in the right direction,
    there's that much stuff on the disc i don't know where to begin..
    main reason for purchase was to cancel a service light that won't go away!!!!!!!

    The service light is easy to get rid of just cannot remember how lol.
    You only need to press a button, I am sure someone will be along soon to tell you how.

    as merikiito says, service light is easy as pressing a button, a search on 'service light reset' brings up a few threads like this one

    180-190 would be more realistic. 210 seems a bit on the high side. Everybody seems to recommend the BSR remap 4 about £550 which i think is your best bet. I do not think you will be able to do it yourself with the thing you got from ebay as I have one and it is not compatible with the later cars, but then urs might be newer.

    Thumbs up

    HI VECCY GUYS

    I bought a new tuning box from this guy on ebay(german guy) he lists them for £99, but if you offer him £55 he accepts (could try even less you never know).

    Method for install;--
    1)plugged item to my common rail
    2) unpluged battery for 30mins ...
    3)Let it idle for 4mins... And bang 180bhp


    Cheaper than the last one i had on which gave me problems cr30.. (long story).
    Going to take down to vsport boldon tyne and wear see what the beast
    is really pushing

    But i can tell you i payed £63 total and what a tuning box it is!! no problems with this one cant change settings either so should keep your engine safe.

    just set to give you approx 30bhp 70NM torque


    item found here==== http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CHIP-TUNING-CH...QQcmdZViewItem
