BMW F60 520d remapping at Tuning Emporium 187bhp

Tuning Emporium goes through stages of just a partiulcar brand of vehicles, last week seemed to be nothing other than BMW’s, 1 series, X5, 3 series and this 5 series.

In standard tune 187bhp and 295 lbft its no slouch, but the higher up the rev range you go, the more this saloon struggled a bit with weight on family holidays.

Upon initail inspection all seemed ok, however upon reading the ecu, we found something wrong in the current set up.  This had been to another tuner not that long ago.

Boost values, injection and air flow all incorrect.  We cleared the map, and started again.  This is why we are not the cheapest for remaps, but at the same time we’re not the most expensive either.  For BMW OBD tuning we charge £299.

Maybe this was why the engine ran out of umph up long hills??  Had we not beeen able to recover this ECU, we would have had to get the ECU flashed with our BMW software tool.

So why a remap?

ne main benefit of remapping will be a reduction in fuel consumption meaning that fuel will last you longer so saving YOU money. With the gained extra torque especially at the lower rev range you will see a fuel saving, as it will require less throttle input.

ECU remapping not only improves the engines power and torque, it will also heighten throttle response and expand the power-band. This means things like power delivery will be a lot more linear, which in turn will make the vehicle feel a lot more responsive too. The vehicles power output is frequently restricted by the manufacturer for no reason. Being a driving enthusiast, there is no need for such restrictions to be placed upon your ECU and reducing its performance therefore getting your ECU remapped you could benefit from the hidden power and torque that is hiding within your engine management system.


Benefits what an ECU upgrade to your turbocharged diesel engine may deliver:

  • Increased torque
  • Increased horsepower
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Improved fuel economy
  • Safer overtaking

When the customer is back off their travels we will get the car on the dyno to prove our figures.

We are looking for 238bhp and 340lb ft, given the engine has only done 24k, and it was comepletely different after test drive, we’ve no doubt in our figures.

BMW F30 320d remap, ecu tune at Tuning Emporium

Another fantastic BMW 320d graced us with its presence recently, even in the sport mode, the BMW can still pick its feet, the owner wanted a little bit more.

In standard tune BMW produces and nice 187bhp and 295lb ft, nudging 100bhp per litre already 🙂

Once tuned it should produce

238bhp and 340lb ft, and with the extra torque MPG should imrove by approximately 10% too.

Benefits of having your car remapped:

Car manufacturers are known to program their models’ ECUs so that they are not performing at peak efficiency. This allows them to release a sportier model with a more efficient engine by simply reprogramming the ECU and making small design tweaks. Remapping your car means you can get the most out of your engine – improving performance, fuel efficiency and responsiveness.

Improved engine performance is another way of saying more speed and more power. The increase in horsepower you’ll get from remapping depends on what sort of engine you have. For example, you could get an increase of as much as 40-50bhp (brake horse power) for a turbo engine. It may be lower in other engines. Many remapping services also boast an increase in torque of up to 80nm (Newton metres). In other words, it’ll feel faster!

In regard to improved fuel efficiency, this really depends on how you drive your car. Rushing through gears, sudden and fast acceleration, speeding and sudden braking can have a negative effect on your fuel economy, increasing consumption up to 40%. While this is true whether you remap your engine or not, the combination of remapping and smooth driving will offer better fuel efficiency than good driving on its own.
