Rolling Road Events

As show season is slowly coming to an end it can only mean one thing … Rolling Road Days at ADE Tuning!

We can help you to organise and promote a Rolling Road event for either a group of your friends or a car club you are involved in.

We are fully equipped with our in-house 1200bhp 2wd dyno with a viewing area and large screen to watch the results as they happen and we have ample parking for all your cars and we are within 5 minutes drive from the M65.

Every car that runs on the dyno will receive a dyno print out of their results.

And with dyno runs starting from as little as £30 per car, you would be mad not to get in contact and see what we can do for you!

Hondata – Civic Type R dyno run

Honda Civic Type R – Hondata K100

Watch and listen to the Honda Civic Type R on the rolling road after being custom remapped by ADE Tuning using Hondata K100.

After being modified with a cone filter and decat the customer brought their Honda Civic Type R to us be custom remapped. Using the K100 we wrote a map to suit the modifications and we produced a more powerful and drivable car.

The system consists of additional components which are added to the standard ECU to allow the ECU to use a Hondata program (this modification is normally done by a dealer). An interface box is then connected to the ECU which contains circuitry for data logging, stores rev limits and interfaces to switches in the vehicle. Optionally a clutch switch,push button and data logging cable may be installed. Collectively all this is known as a Hondata system.

Hondata – Honda Civic Type R

Hondata Honda Civic Type R ADE Tuning

Over the last week we have been custom remapping a Honda Civic Type R. Now most vehicle that we custom remap are mapped by connecting to the OBD port or by removing the ECU and reading the cars files on the bench. But the Honda is a different kettle of fish and on some models we can’t do that so we have to use Hondata.

A Hondata system consists of additional components which are added to the standard ECU to allow the ECU to use a Hondata program (this modification is normally done by a dealer). An interface box is then connected to the ECU which contains circuitry for data logging, stores rev limits and interfaces to switches in the vehicle. Optionally a clutch switch, push button and data logging cable may be installed. Collectively all this is known as a Hondata system.

Hondata systems modify the standard Honda engine computers (ECUs), adding features and expanding the capabilities of the stock ECU.

So now we know the basics around Hondata 🙂

Remap

With the Civic being run on the dyno whilst we custom remap the ECU we are able to data log the fuelling, revs etc. This allows us to improve the performance in the safety of the workshop. With the remap written and tested on the rolling road we take the Type R out for a road test before handing the car over to the customer for their own test drive.

With the simple modifications of a cone air filter and decat we where able to achieve these fantastic results and the feedback from the customer was brilliant.

The 122bhp 1.4 TSI engine employs a sophisticated turbocharger to achieve maximum torque of 200Nm from 1,500rpm all the way to 4,000rpm. This equates to a smooth flow of pulling power through the rev range that’s a long way from the all or nothing approach of older turbocharged units. This engine actually has a turbocharger and a supercharger. The supercharger works at low revs while the turbo gets up to speed, producing a similarly progressive power delivery to that of the lesser engine.

Rolling Road Time

As with all our custom remaps, we put the car on the rolling road for a power run to see how the car was already running and to see what power it was making. The standard power as we already know is 122bhp but this well maintained and regularly serviced car made 128bhp on its first run.

 

Custom Remap Time

With the Golf on the dyno it was time to work the remap magic and make those horses’ grow 😉
Our customer watched the progress of the custom remap in our well equipped waiting area and was able to watch his car on the rolling road and also see the increase in power and torque on the big screen and of course Anthony was on hand to explain the dyno graph and fuelling.

Renaultsport models have built up a strong following in the UK among car enthusiasts and the Renaultsport Megane 250 is the most notable to date. Part of its appeal is the option of a track-focused model using what Renault calls a ‘cup chassis’. But customers can also choose a model with more luxury features as standard and a slightly softer set-up. The coupé bodystyle suits the Renaultsport’s sporty features and like the rest of the Megane range, the interior quality feels like it has stepped up.

With 250bhp tucked neatly under the bonnet this Megane is serious competition to the VW Golf and Ford Focus RS hence a visit to ADE Tuning for a custom remap. As with all our custom remaps the car is strapped onto the dyno to see what power it is already producing, the Megane 250RS pulled 230bhp. Not quite what we were expecting 😕 On with the custom remap…
With the custom remap written we did a few more runs but something didn’t feel quite right, so we did a bit of investigation under the bonnet. What we found surprised the customer. He had recently asked a friend the fit a recirculation valve but unbeknown to either of them it had been fitted the wrong way round 🙁 hence the 230bhp originally.

With the recirculation valve fitted the correct way and the custom remap we achieved 309bhp and a very, very happy customer 😀
