Autosport International 2017 – The Pictures


Autosport International 2017

Beginning of the year can only mean one thing…Autosport International 2017. The show is unique in that it encompasses two trade-only days and also two days for the general public. Featuring the very latest in motorsport, automotive and performance engineering technology, alongside cars and exhibitors from every level of motor racing, the show provides the perfect platform for members of the industry to meet, network and do business as well as enthusiasts to see the fastest cars, biggest stars and most amazing live action.

We had a fantastic day even though we had a snowy and early start. It was great to catch up with our suppliers and also get to speak to some new suppliers. The Milltek Sport display looked great and the DTAFast stand had a wealth of information to hand πŸ™‚

Mercedes E320 Remap – Tuning box ‘v’ Custom Remap

Mercedes E320 Remap versus tuning box

So last year we had this Mercedes E320 on the rolling road to find out what power it was making. The owner had only just bought it and it was fitted with a tuning box. We reversed the Merc on to the rolling road and prepared it for the power run. As with all our dyno runs we do a few good runs to get a true power reading and the car with the tuning box made a respectable 235bhp with 416lb/ft torque.

Today the Mercedes E320 returned without the tuning box for a custom remap (Mercedes E320 remap) πŸ™‚ Again the car was run on the rolling road as the remap was written via the obd port. This allows us to monitor the fuelling etc. of the car. When we were happy with the power and torque figures we allowed the customer to take the car out for a test drive before we showed him the figures.

On his return he said β€œThe car felt more responsive on the throttle and the power delivery was unbelievable!”, it was then we showed him the results from the rolling road.
With the custom remap increasing the performance and power to 268bhp with 440lb/ft, the custom remap was definitely the best πŸ™‚
