2.7 t remap? Experiences?

Recently blocked off and removed the EGR....blessing as it's much better.

Now she needs a remap to run at optimum specs and all I hear is more power...more torque!

Simply put...has anyone done this? What improvements and more importantly...fuel consumption and emittions after?

I look forward to hearing your experiences. Thanks in anticipation everyone.

Hi Steve,

I have a similar model to yours and recently had cause to take mine into an independent jaguar garage for a minor repair. Whilst there, I asked the boss if he recommended remapping and if it made any improvements. His reply was an emphatic 'Yes' to both questions.

Briefly that's my experience, and when I've got a few quid spare, I think I'll have it done!

All the best,

Nick

Yes. Made a great difference to my 2.7 Steve. I used DK Tuning and they modified the map in real time until I was happy with the result. That is, new map installed, drive the car, make observations and comments, map modified and downloaded to the car within minutes. Drive and comment etc. until it was precisely as I wanted it.

Don't forget to let your insurers know. It didn't cost me any extra.

Nick, Paul,

Thanks for the input....was starting to think I'd  touched on a bad subject with no answers.....lol.

Am still concerned at the affects on the sport button once the remap is done but the principal seems sound. Going ahead seems a good move. How is the fuel economy and emittions though guys?

paul....good to hear from you again and thanks again for your help last year with the upgrades. You'd not recognise the car now! Now need rear blinds...lol.

Hope you've got answer to the above extra question and again guys....thank you for the positive input. It's good to trust people's experience.

Be safe.

I had what is called the "Red" remap Steve. No attempt to economise, just purely about performance. Emissions didn't change noticeably and fuel consumption was marginally better.

Sport button does as it always does, merely extending the gearchange rev point.

Did you find a replacement amp?

Hi paul,

info on remap ok.

eventualy found amp....wouldn't pay the rip off prices on eBay.....too many iffy ones so waited for a breaker near me. Got it for 45 and he threw in a spare which works so two for one. Managed to get a type r spoiler at the same time so a productive trip. Hope alls well at ur end?

All,

Have booked the car for the remap this Friday and am hopeful of a positive outcome despite the usual concerns I think many people have.

Will post an update on the process and outcome once it's done and I've put a few miles on the clock to gauge performance etc.

Cheers again for the input.

Gents,

well today came and the remap has been done. Phil a local tuning specialist looked after me and was helpful and informative throughout the process. The remap was car specific and simple enough to do and the moment came to " take it for a spin" and I really didn't know what to expect. My mind was almost immediately put to rest when I felt the improvement in pull and acceleration. The gearbox seemed more responsive like it was in sports mode. I took it for a good drive on various roads and drove it in different ways. Initial thoughts.....a great improvement across the drive range. The 2.7 is no slouch generally but it now feels...sportier and more responsive. Conclusion initially.....very pleased with the outcome but will monitor over the next week or so to see how it is with fuel etc. 

I hope my experience helps others who are unsure of the remap.

steve.

Hi Nick,

got mine done for £185. Average price seems to be £250 or above. After all the work done looking into it I think I made the right choice as remap....test run and tweak was all needed in my case. Comes with 30 day warranty.

Guess it all depends on where and who really but glad I've done it. Shop around and talk to a few people. One will talk to you and give you the confidence to get it done.

Hope all goes well and you take the plunge......well worth it.

Nick,

Always a repair or tweak to do...lol. Hope when you get round to it you'll comment?

Paul,

Insurance are fine....receipt for works says remap for economy with benefits of other  improvements . Power is up to 250 bhp and torque up 24 percent . If they are happy who am I to argue.

Thanks for the input and advice.
