Angel did my clk cdi 320, 2005. Money well spent imo, mpg improved 1 or 2 mpg and the response is better all round. Infact i reckon the kick down slows the car down now the torgue has increased, just need the gearbox reprogrammed now.......
Hi, my first post.
had my '06 CLK 320 CDI remapped by Torquing BHP of Cambridge.
Dramatic improvement. Engine quieter, terrific mid-range shove and 4 more miles to the gallon.
Money well spent.
Jag XF 3.0S and 10 yr old Micra 1.2 auto with Air Con.
I had my 2003 6 in line E320cdi remapped about a year ago, estimated torque increase was from 500nm(370 ft lb) to 570nm(420 ft lb) +14% and power increase from estimated from 204bhp to 244bhp (+19%). Seems like I am just within advised max torque figures.
Increased figures are still estimated because their rolling road was broken on the day and I intended to return, never have because the increased torque and power are very obvious. It can be quite hairy on a damp surface changing direction say overtaking, and the ASR seems slower to react. Tail out very easy to do. There is also an increase in induction noise, that I quite like, all in all a really good upgrade for less than £400, but suspect my rear tyres will not last as long!
Fuel economy improved by 3/4 mpg as well.
No problem with Insurance, a modest increase.
However, am now trading the car in and not comfortable leaving the remap on for next owner. If the dealer 'loses' my supporting service documents (the car will be auctioned) the next owner could have insurance problems in the event of an accident and investigation; so having it put back to standard.
I'm moving on to a V6 642920 engine and probably won't bother with a remap.
