Post by Sandancer on Thu 16 Mar 2017 - 22:04

Has anyone remapped their 1.2 Wind? A belgium guy on Pistonheads claims 127HP (Up from standard 100HP)
Good increase in power

i have looked into it had email form garage saying...

"Power will go from 100hp to 115hp and torque goes from 145 to 195 nm . there are two types of ecu fitted one will remap through the obd port and one requires the ecu to be modified which takes 3 days"

Obd remap cost is £220 including vat ecu removal and modification is £ 320

A 15% increase in bhp plus a torque increase increase from 145nm to 195 at that price would seem to be very good value.

BUT: need to check if it is "useable" by checking whether the enhanced bhp/torque is available at the same rpm or whether it is necessary to rev the guts out of it to get it.

Anyone know if a similar re-map is available for the 1.6?

I guess that most "standard" insurance companies might even refuse to insure anything out of the ordinary especially performance enhancing mods as opposed to cosmetic. Some will at a price & on receipt of full details re the mod.

Playing Devil's Advocate: Some might say what the eye doesn't see the heart won't grieve about! How would an assessor ever find out in the event of a prang? Your decision not mine.

Brakes: Probably plenty of capacity in the standard brakes for this level of performance enhancement as enhanced acceleration will not necessarily affect the max speed that they have to pull up from. Also brakes on a car like this should be designed to cope with a sportier driving style as befits the car's image.

Update re brakes: The 1.2 has the same brakes as the 1.6 so no problem there for 1.2 owners upgrading power.

A thought re re-maps (usually regarded as the better option) v in line chips.

When you have the car serviced there is a need to ensure the garage is aware of the re-map in case they accidentally affect or even remove the re-map when they plug in their diagnostics. 

An in line chip can be removed prior to the service & put back later.

Back in the day I used to adjust the twin SU carbs on my MGB prior to MoT get it through the emission test. The tester knew I would re-adjust them for max performance as soon as I got my certificate!!
