Renault Trafic with Hybrid Turbo

Renault Trafic with Hybrid Turbo, DPF Delete and custom remap

We first saw this Renault Trafic when the owner came down for a power run on our rolling road. He wanted to see what power it was making as he felt it quite quick. When we ran the van on the rolling road it made standard power. That’s when the owner enquired about a remap. We custom remapped the Renault Trafic on the rolling road and improved the standard 112bhp to a respectable 149bhp.

The van responded and drove fantastically after the remap. We thought we had seen the last of the owner 😉

Little did we know that 149bhp in a Renault Trafic isn’t good enough when you are being overtaken by VW T5 on the motorway, so he returned to find out if he could get any more power out of his van. The answer was yes, the van still had the dpf fitted and by deleting that we could increase the bhp. He then asked about the turbo and could we do anything with it. We hadn’t had any experience with the turbo from the Trafic so we contacted our Turbo Guy to find out what could be done.

Brilliant news he could hybrid the turbo!

The van was booked in for the turbo to be hybridized. The dpf deleted and the egr valve blanked off before being custom remapped again.

It was tight squeeze removing the turbo and soon as we got it off it was sent over to our Turbo Guy. Whilst the turbo was being worked on we performed the dpf delete and blanked off the egr valve.

With the hybrid turbo fitted back into the engine bay the Renault Trafic headed back over to the rolling road for the new custom remap.

*DPF delete is only recommended for race and track cars

BMW M5 Rolling Road Session – F10 M5

Rolling Road Session for this beast of a BMW M5

The F10 M5 was released to the public at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, and went on sale in November 2011. Compared to the previous M5, the F10 M5 has improved fuel economy but is larger, heavier, has engine noise played through its audio system and has a lower top speed compared to the naturally aspirated E60 M5 V10 it replaces.

Having only owned the car for a few weeks the owner wanted to check whether the car had been mapped or not. The easiest way to see whether the car had been mapped was to run the car on the rolling road, this way we can see what power the car is making. So the car was booked in for a rolling road session.

With the car reversed onto the rolling road as it is rear wheel driven, it was strapped down and we began the rolling road session. The owner watched from the dyno viewing area where he could watch the power made on the big screen.

After a few runs it was apparent that the car hadn’t been mapped as it was making the expected power of a standard car. This was great news to the owner as a custom remap should see power gains of around 100bhp, which when on top of the standard 550bhp makes the potential power of this M5 ridiculous 😉 and I’m pretty sure he will be returning for a custom remap when he gets bored of his current power.

Do you have a car that you would like to know what bhp it is currently making?

Do you think your car may have already been remapped before you bought it?

Have you been sold a remapped car and want to check the figures?

Then get in touch and we can book you in for your own rolling road session.
