Torquing About BHP Figures

One thing that experience has taught us is that the inflated BHP and Torque gains as quoted by some remapping companies are not the most important thing to look at when it comes to vehicle tuning. The real differences you’ll feel when you drive your vehicle after a quality tune are what matter the most, such as how the new tune gives you improved driveability, better throttle response and optimised power delivery have been designed in your new Enhanced Performance or Optimised MPG tuning map. A generic or incorrectly designed map may not perform to your expectations even though the quoted BHP & Torque figures look attractive.

As an approved Viezu dealer our ECU tuning benefits from Viezu’s vast experience, R&D, ISO: 9001 accreditation and a Queen’s Award for Innovation in recognition of the their in-house designed fuel-saving and emissions-cutting software known as BlueOptimize which took over two years of development time. BlueOptimize is claimed to be the only vehicle tuning product focused solely on reducing fuel consumption and emissions and is now used by BT’s fleet operators thanks to the improved fuel efficiency of its vans. BT is now saving £4million a year in diesel costs and estimates that the reduction in its carbon footprint is equivalent to taking 5,000 London cabs off the road.

As an authorised Viezu dealer, Essex-Remaps benefits from Viezu’s dedication to ECU Mapping, chip tuning and their dealer network of over 500 professional ECU remapping dealerships across the world in over 57 countries and are one of the only truly global ECU mapping and economy remap providers.

Citroen C4 Picasso ECU Tuning

Citroens C4 Picasso is a popular choice amongst both families (for the extra space) and commuters looking for a relaxed drive to and from work. The line-up is greatly helped by the strong range of Peugeot diesel engines used in these cars with both the 1.6 and 2.0 both being popular options.

Citroen’s listed MPG figures for these cars is a little off of what owners are reporting their actual MPG to be, with the 2.0HDi manual listed as returning 67.3 mpg but the real world figures of these cars is reported as being just 42.1 – 46.4 for the 2.0 HDi, and 48-52 for the 1.6HDI by owners.

A Blueoptimize remap for economy gives 15- 20% better MPG and lower emissions, whilst also giving smoother throttle response and better drivability.  The increased economy given by our Blue Optimize remaps could see your 42.1 mpg increased by between 6.3 mpg and 8.4 mpg giving your C4 Picasso a much better return of 48.4 mpg & 50.4 mpg. These figures obviously depend on the cars general condition and how the car is driven.
