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 😉

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 😍

NEW CAR OR REMAP UPGRADE?

WOULD ASH BUY A NEW CAR OR REMAP HIS SEAT LEON FR?

Having owned his SEAT Leon FR for nearly three years, Ash was contemplating buying a newer car or a custom remap. He had no issues with his car and had been looking to buy a new car but was stuck what to buy. This was when a friend suggested a remap. The remap would not only increase the power of the car but the delivery of the power. So Ash did a quick Goggle search and ADE Tuning appeared on the first page.

After a phone call chat to discus what we could do for him and his car, he made the decision of a remap. Later that day he booked his SEAT Leon FR in for a custom remap.

REMAP DAY

The day of the remap arrived and Ash dropped the car off and filled out a remap disclaimer. Unfortunately Ash had to work that day so left his SEAT Leon FR in our capable hands. As with all our remaps we ran the car on the rolling to for a health check and also to see what power the car was already making. On the odd occasion we have run a car and found that it is quite down on power. If this was to happen we wouldn’t be happy mapping the car until the issue was fixed, a remap would just mask the issue not fix it.

Luckily for Ash his car was pulling a very healthy 156 bhp so the remapping process began. Here at ADE Tuning we don’t download files off the internet, we write our own. With an ecu file written we ran the car again to check how the car behaved. Sometimes we have to write more than one ecu file as each car can react differently to the information given. You have to remember that not all cars are driven or serviced the same and this can affect how the car reacts. Once we where happy with how the car performed and the power it had produced we took it out for a test drive on the road. The car now had better throttle response and the drivability through the gears had greatly improved.

THE RESULTS

Ash took his car out for a test drive and immediately noticed how much more responsive the throttle pedal was. Once we got out on to the motorway he commented on how the car pulled better through the gears. And how normally he would have to change down a gear to overtake but the car now just kept pulling. When we got back to the workshop he told us how pleased he was with the car and the results 🙂

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. Colder temperatures make the air more dense. Since density is the ratio of mass per unit volume, a volume of air at a lower temperature contains more molecules than the same volume of air at a higher 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 🙂

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 😉

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!!
