The AmD Technik Essex - Car Thread

Due to popular demand, well about 20 odd people. Im going to run a thread with a selection of cars we have in through out the week.

Where I can ill add what we done to them too.

so from the last couple of days we have had

Porsche 996 Turbo in for a Full service and a re-map





VW Golf Gti Race Car in for some Dyno time and a map tweak





Audi A6 Le Mans in for a Full Service and re-map. Its a 3.0 Tdi. These are imense after we have had a little play with them!



BMW Z3 SUPERCHARGED in for a Re-map and to check fuelling





Mk4 R32 - Cams, Milltek manifolds and cats



Fabia VRS in for a new turbo



Golf Edition 30 in for a map, pipercross panel filter and a full Turbo back Milltek - was 230bhp and now 332bhp!





Focus ST in for wheel alignment and a large bore down pipe





Honda Civic TD in for a new clutch and flywheel



Seat Ibiza Cupra in for cambelt/water pump, Uprated Forge DV, Milltek Cat back



Mk4 Golf V6 4 Motion for wishbone bushes and Eibach ARB's and a mk4 Golf For diganostics.



afew other cars we had in yesterday for various jobs



plus just to show its not all glamour we had this in for a Re-map!







We done an econmy map for this and the owner was very pleased! We took the speed limiter off too as it was limited to 81mph!



Nice gains and still needs to adapt yet.

Also in the last couple of days with a 320D BMW which gained 60bhp and 90llbft of torque, Focus ST for Eibach lowering springs, Fiesta 1.4 for a re-map, plus cars in for your usual exhausts, mapping, general repairs, servicing etc but I didn't get pics of all the cars we had in.

Also I thought you might like to see this





All R32's two weeks ago we went R32 crazy and had about 10 in within a 3day period!

More to come tomorrow

Just looking at the torque on the taxi 144lb/ft? surprised it can pull away with that! my Santa fe was 314lb/ft after your remap (still need to do a write up) which was a 50 lb/ft increase, so should imagine the 320d flies.

Have you ever worked your magic on a BMW 135i M Sport Coupe perhaps? If so can you let me know what to expect, as BMW do a 20hp performance kit for close t £2000

Mind you they say it doesnt void the BMW warranty.
