IT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO STOP

EBC BRAKES FOR AUDI TTRS

You will remember this stunning Audi TTRS from a previous blog when we fitted a Milltek decat down pipe before it went over to the rolling road for a custom remap. Well the front pads where running pretty low so that could only mean one thing.

Time to up grade to some performance pads 😉 Well it is always good to be able to stop!

After pricing up replacement pads with Audi, the owner decided that the Yellowstuff where cheaper and would work better with his driving style.

EBC Brakes – Yellowstuff

The Yellowstuff pads are EBC’s premium Fast Road brake pad. With a huge heat range you will benefit by a fantastic bite from cold and high temperatures without brake fade.

These pads are perfect for occasional track days due to the effectiveness under high temperatures and the bite from cold which cannot be said for other race materials.

Making them the ideal choice for the Audi TTRS.

We have fitted EBC Brakes to a few of our customers cars, whether they have been for the road or track.

CUSTOM REMAP OR REVO DOWNLOAD?

Could ADE Tuning remap produce a better drive than a Revo remap?

This 160bhp 1.4tsi Vw scirocco had been previously been mapped by Revo but the owner wasn’t happy with how the engine was performing and got in touch with ADE Tuning for a custom remap. He had fitted an air intake and a GFB dumpvalve.

As with all our remaps we ran the Scirocco on the rolling road to see what figures the Revo map made, 195bhp with 220ft/lb torque, not bad gains for the 160bhp car.

We then put a standard file on to the ecu and ran it again before writing our own custom file to suit.

207bhp with 250ft/lb torque 🤗

VW SCIROCCO GT 2.0L PETROL REMAP

STUNNING VW SCIROCCO GETS A CUSTOM REMAP

This stunning VW Scirocco booked in to ADE Tuning for a custom remap. The owner had owned the car for quite a while and decided to get a remap rather than buying a new car.

The 2.0l petrol Scirocco as a standard car will pull 200bhp on the rolling road. As with all our remaps we ran the car to check it was making standard power and that it had no issues. Making 205bhp we had no doubts that this was a good strong engine.

With the car strapped to the rolling road we began the remap process. We run the car whist we write the ecu files to monitor how the car reacts. This is also good as the customer can see the progress the their car whilst sat in the dyno viewing area.

Once we reach a figure that we are happy with we take the car out for a test drive. We always remap our cars within a safe parameter whilst still getting power and performance.

SKODA FABIA MONTE CARLO – THE 1.6TDI BEAST

Is this the most powerful Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo in the UK?

Monte Carlo is where the world’s most famous rally is held. And that’s the inspiration behind the top-of-the-range Monte Carlo trim offered on the  hatchback. The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is the most luxurious super mini that Skoda offers. Available only as a five-door hatchback the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is available with 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.

This Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo has been on quite the journey over the last few weeks.

The Monte Carlo had been fitted with a hybrid turbo, fmic, EGR blank. It arrived on a trailer needing a dpf delete down pipe fitting before we could custom remap it on the rolling road.

With pipe fitted and the car built back up it went over to the dyno for remapping.

Rolling Road Remap Time

The remapping process started and after a couple of hours it became clear that the hybrid turbo on the car wasn’t suited to the car. So off came the turbo. It was sent to the ADE Tuning turbo guru to have a look at. The report back was that the wheel inside the turbo was way to big and that was causing the power delivery to be laggy. This confirmed what we knew. The turbo was boosting late making peak torque and power at only 3k, which meant the car wasn’t making enough power.

New hybrid turbo delivered and this time built up to be stronger and flow correctly.

With it was fitted to the car the remapping process started again.

As with all our remaps we only map the car within a safe parameter. We always check how the car drives on the road too. With the Skoda Fabia Monte-Carlo reacting and pulling well on the road, we handed it back to the owner.

*DPF delete is only recommended for race and track cars

FORD MONDEO ST TDCI REMAP

Ford Mondeo ST TDCi – Our First Remap of 2018

The owner of the Mondeo had booked in for a remap last year and he wanted to improve the mid-range driveabilty and fuel consumption with the obvious increase in power.

He had previously owned cars that we had remapped and knew that he would get a before and after rolling road figure.

As with most of our customers, the car had been fitted with a larger inter-cooler and stainless de-cat exhaust system.

As with all our custom remaps, we ran the car on the rolling road beforehand. The Ford Mondeo made 157bhp on the pre-remap run, which is a great result for an eleven year old car.

The remap increased that power to 197bhp with 358ft/lb torque 😉
