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.

BMW F-Series ECU Tuning in Essex

We can now tune new F- series BMW’s for optimised MPG, enhanced power or a combination of the two due to the development of new protocols.

Traditionally BMW models have carried an E development number. The E is short for Entwicklung, which is German for the word Development. These numbers have then risen progressively through to triple digits, until In 2008 BMW started using the letter F prefix for their development designation numbers.

Some F-Series BMW’s from 2008 to 2011 were able to be tuned via the OBD-2 port (diagnostic port), and now due to the recent development of new tuning protocols we can tune almost all new BMW’s from 2011 to 2015 based on the Fxx series.

Here is a list of models we are able to tune for optimised MPG and enhanced performance.

Super Market Fuel Price Drop

Super Market Fuel Price Drop

Super Market Fuel Price Drop

Motorists are set to benefit from cheaper fuel prices this week after the big supermarkets announced that they would be slashing prices at the pumps.

Sainsbury’s have said that they will be reducing prices by 5p a litre on both petrol and diesel across their forecourts. Asda were quick to follow suit and have also dropped their prices by 1p per litre for petrol and 2p for diesel. Other supermarket chains are yet to announce whether they will be reducing their prices at the pumps, although it’s expected they will follow suit.

Luke Bosdet, spokesman for the AA, has said: “The real value will be in places, often small market towns, suffering from the postcode pump price lottery – having to pay at least 3p a litre more than in neighbouring, more competitive towns. If that pulls down the price among other retailers, that will be a big benefit,” the Telegraph reports.

This means that drivers filling up at Sainsbury’s would on average save around £2.50 for each tank of fuel, although in some areas this price cut would only bring the supermarket in-line with cheaper petrol stations.

The recent drop in forecourt prices has been linked to the falling wholesale prices of crude oil, which has been brought about by increased oil production in the Middle East. The ‘no’ vote in the Scottish independence referendum has also helped in the pound becoming stronger against the dollar which contributed to a reduction in prices.

If you would like to save more money on fuel costs take a look at our BlueOptimize economy remap which offers fuel savings of between 15% to 20% and is ideal for most makes of car, vans and trucks.
