MAZDA 6 DIESEL REMAP

On the rolling road for a diesel remap we have this Mazda 6 2.2 SkyActiv-D. Wanting better fuel economy and more power, the owner of this Mazda 6 got in touch with ADE Tuning to see if this was possible. A tuned diesel engine should give you better fuel economy when mapped correctly.

We ran the car on the rolling road before the remap as a health check and also find what power the car was pulling. The Mazda was a little down on the expected power but nothing serious.

The 150bhp engine in the Mazda is capable of making up to 60bhp more in power. BUT both ourselves and the customer understood that the car was a daily driver that needed to be reliable. That’s the beauty of a custom diesel remap, we can tailor it to your needs.

The Mazda 6 is now pulling 183bhp with 327ft/lb torque. A nice increase on the standard power which will in turn enable better fuel economy. The car is now more responsive throughout the gears making for a more spirited drive. And with the added bonus of a better mpg.

Do you own a diesel car that would benefit from a diesel remap?

DOORSLAMMERS 2019 – WHAT A WEEKEND!

Doorslammers 2019 saw hundred and ninety-nine cars entered, a record number for the event. The front wheel drive entry list was closed early due to the vast amount of drag cars that had been entered. With cars and drivers coming from all over Europe, this weekend was going to be EPIC!

Doorslammers 2019 was a brilliant opportunity to see some of the mixture of ADE Tuning mapped drag cars in one place. Most compete within the car group of manufacturer i.e. Carl with Rusty Bullet (Vauxhall Astra GTE) and Ian with that Crazy Corsa where recently down at the Performance Vauxhall Show. The team headed down very early on the Friday morning ready for FWD qualifying and also RWYB (run what you’ve brung) so they could get use to the track and check their cars.

TEAM ADE TUNING

Rob Garvey – VW Golf VR6T
Paul Hughes – Hillman Imp with Toyota MR2 turbo
Paul Jordan – VW Polo 1.8 20vt
Ian Milne – Vauxhall Corsa C20LET
Carl Hartley – Vauxhall Astra GTE C20LET
Mike Whittaker – VW MK1 Caddy VR6T

SO HOW DID THE DRIVERS DO?

With the cars entered across four of the seven categories everyone was well prepared or a least they thought so ๐Ÿ˜‰

Carl broke Rusty Bullets clutch on the Friday. BUT managed to get a clutch sent down to Santa Pod for replacement on the Saturday. Then broke the replacement!

Sadly Ian broke an inner cv boot and couldn’t get a replacement. Jordy set off too early on his race which set off the red light which was an automatic elimination. Rob was doing well until he was paired against a Mustang and changed from 3rd to 1st 🤔 Mike in the Caddy got through to semi finals and got knocked out coming 4th 🏆🏁

Everyone had a cracking weekend even though the weather gods didn’t play ball on the Saturday.

And will we be back for Doorslammers 2020??

HELL YEAH!!

THE MOST POWERFUL MONTE CARLO IN THE UK?

Well, Andrew went and got himself a seven page feature in VWG Magazine. Check out the ADE Tuning remapped 204bhp Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo!

Named after Monte Carlo, the venue of the world famous rally. This Skoda is available only as a five-door hatchback in either the 1.2-litre TSI (85bhp or 104bhp) petrol or the 105bhp 1.6-litre diesel. It comes in a range of distinctive colours with the potential for a contrasting roof colour.

Here is a quick flick through some of the pages. For a sit down read you can either bob down to the workshop or pick up a copy at your local magazine stand.

This Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo has been on quite the journey over the last year. You can check out its ADE Tuning journey in our blog

AUDI RS3 HYBRID TURBO TIME

The Audi RS3 has been at the forefront of the hot hatch arms race ever since the original made its grand entrance in 2011. The second generation stuck to the same mechanical template of the muscular turbocharged five-cylinder engine up front, sending its power to all four wheels.

The stunning Audi RS3 not only looks the part but it also pulls 367bhp in standard form. And for most people this would be more than enough power in the 4wd car. But as we find with most of our customers more power is always needed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Slowly parts where bought and changed on the car. Induction kit, secondary decat pipes, decat pipes and front mount intercooler where fitted and the car was mapped to suit along the way.

The Audi RS3 ran a 11.92 at 113mph down at Ultimate Street Car in 2017.

So where do you go next after you have modified the car like above?

Hybrid turbo! ๐Ÿ˜†

A second turbo was sent over to our “Turbo Guru” for hybridizing. With a bigger, modified compressor wheel fitted and the rest of the internals upgraded it was time to fit the hybrid turbo.

Original ‘V’ Hybrid

With the hybrid turbo fitted, the Audi RS3 had the Haldex 4wd system disabled and the car was strapped down to the rolling road.

The Mapping Process Began…

As we had put a lot of time and development into the Audi RS3 over the last couple of years. Mapping it to suit the next modification and working closely with the “Turbo Guru” and the owner we knew what we needed to get out of the car.

Our aim was to create a remap to suit the car that will not only deliver the power like it would out of the factory but be reliable in its delivery.

Here is what the beast of a car made on the rolling road…

So ADE Tuning increased the power and performance of this stunning Audi RS3.

AUDI TT GOLF MK1 ECU REMAP

This car is a one off build and the car started out life as a mk1 Golf. The build consisted of putting the mk1 body on to a Audi TT chassis. But this wasn’t a simple build. Jems Speed Shop enlisted the fabricating experts Jo’s fab lab to build the car. Jo’s fab lab made the body kit out of steel and rolled and folded metal making the car bespoke in every way. The car was 8 inch wider than the Audi TT base so the car was split in two and widened to fit. The car has the 225bhp engine and that combined with the Audi four wheel drive system makes this car a dream to drive.

So the car went up for sale and the new owner brought the car down to ADE Tuning to find out about an ECU remap.

This is where we get to work our magic ๐Ÿ˜‰

An Audi TT has the Haldex 4wd system. So we disengaged it before we strapped it down on to the rolling road. As with all our ecu remaps we ran the car for a health check and to find what power we where working with. The car pulled 200bhp which was expected as this is the general power figure we see in the MK1 TT’s. The custom remap was written and the car was run on the rolling road throughout. Once we where happy with the cars ecu remap gains we re-engaged the haldex and went on a road test.

The car performed effortless with the throttle response greatly improved and the mid-range drive spot on, not to mention the increase in power.

The Audi TT/ Mk1 VW Golf will be heading down to Ultimate Dubs in a few weeks so be sure to check it out, not that you can miss it ๐Ÿ˜‰
