AUDI RS7 REMAP AND MILLTEK- DAILY DRIVER

When your putting too many miles on your Bentley Bentayga you obviously go and treat yourself to an Audi RS7 šŸ˜‰

Now the Audi RS7 is a daily driver i could easily cope with. Under the bonnet sits 4.0L twin turbo V8 engine that comes with 605bhp. It’s 0-60 is 3.6 seconds and all in 4wd. But that wouldn’t be good enough for our customer so he booked the car in for a Milltek non-resonated cat back exhaust with a custom remap.

With the car on the ramp we soon got around to fitting the Milltek cat back. This system uses the tailpipes of the original exhaust system and fits like it’s OEM.

So we have the exhaust on the car, it was now time for the custom remap. I mentioned earlier that the Audi was 4wd and you will know that ADE Tuning only have a 2wd rolling road. A quick phone call and we can hire out the 4wd rolling road for mapping.

With the car strapped to the rolling road we began the mapping running the car as we went along. Once we where happy with the power made and its delivery we did one last power run.

What a great result!

Not only does the car look amazing, it sounds amazing and drives like a rocket 😍

AUDI RS3 DECAT DOWNPIPE – BUY CHEAP PAYS TWICE!

The Audi rs3 is no stranger to ADE Tuning and we have worked on quite a few over the years. We know what this car is capable of with the right modifications. This stunning example was booked in to the workshop for a decat downpipe fitting. The customer had sourced himself the downpipe and wanted us to install it.

With the car on the ramp we removed the propshaft and a few other parts to make room to remove the current downpipe. With the replacement decat downpipe placed next to the original we noticed a slight problem.

The hangers on the shiny new downpipe where facing the wrong way šŸ™

We made a quick phone call to the customer to explain the situation, he came down to the workshop. Not happy with the workmanship of the downpipe he decided to return the exhaust and open a dispute case on eBay. A phone call was made to Milltek and that afternoon a decat downpipe was dispatched. ADE Tuning are approved suppliers and fitters of Milltek Sport exhausts.

Milltek to the rescue!!

The Milltek downpipe arrived the next morning, we unpacked it and compared it to the original. Suprise, suprise it had the exhaust hangers in the correct location. With the rest of the car built back up we where able start the car up and check for leaks.

Just listen to that…

Why not treat your car to a Milltek Sport exhaust system?

FORD TRANSIT CUSTOM REMAP

On the rolling road today for a custom remap, this 100bhp Ford Transit Custom. The owner was disappointed in how the van drove. He felt that it was lazy and sluggish going up hill. That is when he booked the van in for a custom remap.

We ran the van on the rolling road before we started the remapping process. It was slightly down on power but the day of the remap was exceptionally hot day. This was nothing to be worried about as cars prefer colder temperatures for optimum performance. ColderĀ temperaturesĀ make the air more dense. Since density is the ratio of mass per unit volume, a volume of air at a lowerĀ temperatureĀ contains more molecules than the same volume of air at a higherĀ temperature.

With the custom remap written for the van it was run again. Now pulling 162bhp with 317ft/lb torque this Transit Custom remap would really change the vans drive.

The customer took the van out for a test drive and immediately commented on the difference in throttle response. Once out on the motorway he commented that he no longer need to change through the gear when overtaking or going up a hill. What a cracking result šŸ™‚

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 šŸ˜‰

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!!
