ECU Remapping

Post by KatanaAl on Wed 8 Nov 2017 - 14:31

I had my 1.2 Wind remapped at the weekend by a company called Black-Code. It takes the horsepower up to 125bhp and increases the torque by 15%.
I had Geoff (Sandancer) out in the car today and we both agreed it feels like a different car for the better. It feels much more lively from a standing start and when the turbo kicks in between 2500-3500 revs there is a noticeable kick in the pants feeling. This makes overtaking much easier and safer. Tootling about in my car bearing in mind I live out in the sticks and very rarely drive the car in stop start conditions the average mpg has risen from 42 to 44 according to the onboard computer.
If anybody out there in Wind land fancies having their car done by this company, please mention me, I think I get a referral fee.

That was the good news and of course there is always bad news, the car is booked in for an MOT and to have the timing belt changed tomorrow.

Cheers

It was £250, that seems to be the going rate, I did check. My car only has 12,500 miles on the clock and I do intend to keep it for a good while. The car is incredibly responsive and genuinely has loads more power. It flew through it's MOT last week with no problems and is going back in on Thursday to have the timing belt changed.

Sounds like you should put a re-map in your letter to Santa this year.

Then you can become an EXPENSIVE HUSBAND.

As the ad says: "Because we're worth it"!!

Got those sort of comments re tinkering with my MGBs, TR7s, MGTFs & the V6 Alfa Spider.

I still have my grease gun hanging unused in the garage! On the MGBs it was used every 2500 mls!!

The joy of an afternoon spent balancing & adjusting twin carburetors & distributor; & actually feeling the improvement; was very satisfying.

Not any more. The Wind is so reliable & less maintenance needy that my wife thought I wasn't looking after it properly!! No more excuses for hiding in the garage.
