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?


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



Subaru introduced the “New Age” Impreza to Japan in August 2000. The WRX models featured a 2.0-litre turbocharged boxer engine until 2005, after which they switched to the 2.5-litre turbocharged engine.

This Subaru Impreza WRX had been treated to a new exhaust and been fully serviced before coming down to ADE Tuning. As a standard car this Subaru would make 214bhp.

With the live custom remap written and adjusted whilst the car is driven with our tuner in the passenger seat. It is important to ensure optimum AFR is achieved in order to ensure that stoichiometric mixture. This in basic terms means that the engine isn’t running lean or rich fuel mixture.

Another important factor to monitor is engine knock when developing a good and most importantly a safe tune. Knocking or detonation occurs when unburnt fuel in the combustion chamber explodes rather than a burning in a controlled manner.

It is important that correct boost pressure control is achieved to ensure that no spikes or dips occur to ensure maintained life of the turbocharger.

With all these factors taken in to account and with our tuner happy with how the car performs and drives we took the car over to the four wheel driven rolling road. ADE Tuning only have a two wheel driven rolling road onsite so hire a local four wheel driven one.

With the Subaru Impreza WRX strapped to the rolling road we find the final power figure of the live road remap.

The live road map increased to power to 292bhp 😊

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 🤗

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.
