3.0sd pre and post remap (also economy)
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:50:27 PM »
What sort of mpg were people getting pre and post remap on a 3.0sd?

Performance wise I bet throttle and pick up between the two turbos are smoother and quicker

I have a remapped 3.0sd, personally I've not noticed a huge change in overall mpg as I only ever do short round town trips in my car.  However on a long run she averaged 28mpg over a week down in cornwall which I thought was pretty good.

How much did emaps charge, what process do they take ie live logging and did you specify anything or did they give you similar Bhp and torque figure?
