    Smile Trip To Regal - Late 2.0 DTi Remapped!

    Early start on Monday morning for my trek down to Regal!



    Got there at about 10am, and was told it would take 4 hours to map. Got the bus for the first time in years into Southampton came back and it was done!

    Regal are currently the only people that can remap the late spec (2002/3 onwards) 2.0 DTi's. All the other tuning companies i have contacted told me it couldn't be done!

    The drive in the car has been transformed. The power in low down in 1st and 2nd gears is much improved and now the car pulls all the way up to redline. In 3rd, 4th and 5th the power has been smoothed out to the point where you cannot really feel the turbo kick in anymore just a constant band of power like it is constantly on turbo.

    The remap should have bought the engine up to around 130bhp (30bhp up on standard) with a torque figure of around 200 sq/ft lbs. I will be having it rolling roaded in the next week or so at my local RR where i had it done a few months back so i can compare the figures.

    Overall, really happy with the result and if you guys and gals with the 2.0 DTi want it done i would recommend it!

    I don't know mate... Might give it a cat-back stainless system after the show season has finished and have some money and maybe a front mount! Hoping it might get to the magical 150bhp with a bit more playing..

    Well you need to sort all your issues out and get yours mapped aswell then
    Just comes down to the handling then on track....

    It used to run out of puff at about 4000, but now it revs up and gives power up to closer 5000 (which is redline for us diesel boys!)

    I think they do it for the earlier ones aswell. Have a look on their website and it lists them all. I got mine as a show deal as i booked it at PVS.. but their usual price is around £350
