    Default Celtic Tuning - Map claims

    Got myself a quote from Celtic Tuning for remapping my 150 CDTi, and they reckon from a simple remap ALONE, I can get 212bhp from my STANDARD lump.

    Now I asked them for proof that the claim can be substantiated. They sent me this:



    What do you reckon?? Achievable? I'm not so sure. Most others (BSR etc) are quoting mid 180s.

    Looks like something made up from a PDF file than anything else - proves nothing...

    All you have to do is type in a few different variables into a rolling road like air temp and the bhp can be made what you want it to be made on paper. In short mate, no chance can them make reliable numbers like that, maybe on there own RR but not an independent one.

    That graph shows 212 at the crank, 174 at the wheels. About right.

    When they re-map they change the rev limmiter so it revs full in all gears all the way to 5000.

    ...and injectors, DMF, clutch, EGR....... box's are too harsh for the potentially already frail CDTi engine.

    I'd want to see the before graph. And be happy that conditions were roughly the same pre and post map.

    It's all well and good looking at 212bhp, but if the RR report before twiddling showed more than 150bhp, then you could conceivably reduce the post map figure by a similar amount.
