    Just thought I'd share my recent remapping experience.
    I bought a 109 09 plate vito last year, after owning a 350 90 transit the 109 felt relatively nippy. But had always planned to have it mapped as I'll be keeping it long term.
    I looked into a number of options with a fair few different companies, in the end I went with Pendal perfornance.
    I took it to Martin (the main man) over at Barnoldswick, I dropped the van off and rode the local mountain bike trails whilst he worked his magic.
    I was hoping for a good result, but nothing like what I got! It took him about 2 1/2 hours, including rolling road time.
    Now the all important figures! Pre map reeding came out at 99bhp, and after is was 174.4bhp (144 @ the wheels)
    I have more detailed figures but don't have the paperwork to hand.
    The drive us amazing, low down tourqe is unreal! 2200 is it's sweat spot but pulls like a train even well before this, with no black smoke what so ever!!

    Would definetly recommend!

    Will upload an image of the print out if people want.

    Nice ...some serious bhp running through a 109. maybe the figures are put inline with a 115. lm at the understanding that a 109 111 115 the difference's are only juiced up turbo,s and mapping. keep us posted long term.. if the 109 copes.

    IIRC the 109 has a different (lower) back axle ratio, so it should be pretty nippy but will be revving higher than a 115 in the cruise.

    Yeah it does sit higher on the revs than a friends 115 but the motors are basically the same. Martin said he could take it past 200 but the figures he got are a happy medium so to not damage the engine. Mpg seems to be an improvement too!
