MoreBHP ECU Remap Reviews
Vehicle Make: vw eos
Vehicle Make: BMW
Just to drop you a note to say that the work you did on my Range Rover on Friday worked a treat. As you know I removed a not so cheap power box, that although made improvements to fuel economy and power, was not smooth and also made the engine quite noisy under acceleration with smoke under acceleration (even on a tame setting).
Within a few miles of driving away after your conversion I noticed the car was much smoother, changed up much, much quicker and stayed in a higher gear longer without labouring. Oh and much, much quieter! So on a 40 mile trip home half of which stuck behind slow lorries and lots of roundabouts and the rest on the motorway at 80+ delighted to see 37 MPG from the on board computer. The car is completely different and haven driven a TDV8 I can say there is now next to no difference in performance. I think I’ll be back with the XC90!

We run a Taxi and Private Hire company in Crewe, Cheshire and specialise in multi seat, long distance journeys. In November 2008 we purchased a brand new Vauxhall Vivaro combi 8 90BHP, although we have generally been satisfied with this vehicle, when laden it suffered power loss which does make for hard work on a long journey.
Having used More-BHP previously for a car re-map we approached Jason again to see if he could add any extra power to the work horse. As usual Jason was very helpful and we had a long discussion about our requirements before any alterations were made. We needed extra power but also to retain or improve fuel economy.
Jason assured us that the re-map would be tailored to our needs and we gave the go ahead. WOW, what can we say, the improvement is significant. The vehicle is now friendly to drive, tremendous torque makes overtaking safe and easy, motorway cruising is smooth with the improved throttle response, surprisingly all the extra power has not increased fuel consumption and on the whole the fuel economy has improved.
Did we enjoy driving the Vivaro before? no not really.

I have been a bit slow, but here are some comments about your M-Flash and the ECU re-mapping.1. M-Flash:
I ordered the M-Flash with software for my 2007 2.7 TDI Audi Allroad; the unit came quickly and the operation process was very simple. About 15 minutes to read the original software (which is stored in the M-Flash unit) then 20 minutes to load the new software. And an immediate difference – sharper acceleration across the rev. band, more torque in the low to mid range and better fuel consumption on long runs! Having the M-Flash means that I can re-load the original software in about 10 minutes if the car needs to go in for service or MOT. Very simple and excellent value – highly recommended!2. ECU re-mapping:My son wanted a bit more from his 1.4 (petrol) 1997 Polo; I removed the ECU (took about 15 minutes) on the Monday and put it into first class post in a jiffy bag. The unit came back on Wednesday morning! Re-fitted same day and my son was very happy with the sharper throttle response and just enough improvement in power to make motorway overtaking a lot safer. A very efficient and effective service – thanks! Kind regards, Mike.
Been doing a lot of research on GTI's that have been to you for a re-map, I am very impressed with what I seen so far, the following was on one of the forums I went to, thought you might appreciate it!!
"After a couple of months and a fair bit of researching on google I decided to go for it and booked my AUQ in for a remap at more-bhp, being not too far away and a lot of good feedback on VAG forums along with the price being a fair bit cheaper compared to other remappers it was a no-brainer.
Arrived at the unit where it was put onto VAG-COM straight away which showed up a fair few faults. I've replaced a few sensors myself but not had the tools to clear those fault codes so fingers crossed. Jason had a good look under the bonnet checking hoses which are all good along with some sound advice.
Took it for a sprinted drive in 2nd then back to the unit where the original ECU file was copied and the new map loaded onto the ECU. Then went for another drive.. first impressions it was obvious something had happened but I was expecting a bit more, even so it was a different car - smooth across the rev range and felt very very nippy.
The huge difference was when driving home on the motorway and what a difference. it pulls hard as nails in 6th, that mid-range pull is awesome - going from 70-*** is effortless.
Later on I got my iphone with dynolisious running on a certain national speed limit b-road which has a lovely straight - previous best time was a 7.1 as stock and did a 6.2 today on the same stretch of road with a wee wee poor launch, TC light going mad and my alpine flip screen head unit launching out which now reads "disc error" with every cd.
All in all by far the best money I've ever spent on a car.. gets my bpm going until that repair bill from alpine arrives."
Many thanks again for the fast response times to my questions and will be in touch as soon as I have got the money in hand. Regards James.
Skoda Octavia 1.8T vRS 180 - More BHP tuning supplied to a customer in Greece who kindly supplied the Dyno prints. 310NM torque! Just check the graph for the power.
The Golf Edition GTI was no slouch from the factory, producing 230bhp with a top end of 150mph. So why bother you may ask? The remapping process was explained and carried out with great care by Jason. After various tests off and on road, the job was done. What a complete improvement, the car now has loads more torque at low revs allowing quicker acceleration in a high gear, without that anoying need to drop down a couple of gears. So overtaking etc is so much quicker and therefore safer. Jason explained that the engine in this golf is the same as that in the Audi S3, just slightly detuned, it is now pushing out 300bhp, thats an increase of 70bhp, without any spanners! Fantastic what can be done these days with a Lap Top! The car still does over 35miles to the gallon. I highly recommend a visit to more-bhp.com. 0 to 100 in about 8.5 seconds (on a private road of course!!)
I had been wanting to remap my car from the moment I got it in october. I had been looking around quite a bit and came across Jason at more bhp, so I gave him a ring and arranged a next day remap, great customer service. So I went over on the Saturday with a decent 200bhp and I am going to a rolling road day next week to see what I got now as it feels quite a bit quicker and smoother,
I’ve had a few VAG cars over the years and tried many of the “big boys” remaps, from chip and go to full custom remaps. If I said I drove from the Isle of Wight to Cheshire, some 600 mile round trip plus a ferry crossing and would do it again then that says it all. Jason cares more about customer service than making a sale.
Mark, Audi A4 1.8T Q
Well what can i say, just comeback from a round trip to Spain and this is definetely not the same motorhome i was driving before, Jason has turned a stodgy loaf into a very nimble one. Very very pleased with the reuslts.
Frank, Peugeot Boxer 2.8HDI, Autosleeper
Thanks for today Jason, Really love the new MAP, It feels like a different car now, I've put a post up on uk-mkivs saying what good service I got
We were over with you last week with our Peugeot 2.2HDi 100 based Autosleeper and am delighted with the result. The vehicle is now a pleasure to drive and quite unrecognizable from the old plug that it was.You may be interested to note that Adrian Flux wanted an additional £50 insurance for the increase of 30BHP whereas the Caravan Club just noted the modification without an additional premium.
I have been considering having my TT remapped for a while since buying it.
Had an ECU re-map done by Jason (27/06/09) and to be honest I can't describe just how different my A3 feels now. I didn't know what to expect in terms of how the car would drive but and in the test drive after the re-map I was still a little non plussed.
Hi Jason many thanx for your work done today top job done by all, drove home as I would normally and can't get the grin off my face it truly is a massive difference to my car (still not V8 power but its still nice)
Don’t think about it just do it! I sent my ECU to Jason with a excellent turn around time, it’s an AGU engine with no mods apart from a forge DV, WOW it flies now! It will spin the wheels in 4th just putting the power down in these wet slippery conditions it would struggle in 2nd before (poor tyres mind!). I found Jason to be friendly, very helpful, with great communications and unbeatable prices I will be recommending more-bhp.com ......Thanks mate! Sam - Golf GTI 1999 AGU
Jason, your a legend mate, got my ecu by 1pm, fitted back in car tonight and took it for a spin, WOW, its briliant mate, really made me grin, lol. Problem is now, I gota spend more money on stopping power lol. Thanks again for what you did mate and the price you did it for, I've put a post up on www.uk-mkivs.net/forums and highly recommended you, hope you get loads more business mate, and keep going through this recession. Cheers Jas. Kev - Golf 1.9TDI 110 1998
Hi, Its Omair from Manchester I would recommend more-bhp to everyone as I was told by VW that my turbo had gone and asked me for £1500 to fix it. I rang up jason he checked it out for free and got the problem sorted for only £100 - boost sensor problem. Thanks Jason. Omair - Passat 1.9TDI 130 2001
Thank you so much for the work you did to transform my car. The service was excellent and Jason was always on hand to answer any questions I had. My car is so much quicker and smoother. It pulls through the rev range effortlessly and fuel consumption has not suffered either. I highly recommend more-bhp.com. Chris - Golf 1.8T GTI 2001
Fantastic service, thanks. All i can say is this has to be the best mod! It makes such a difference to power, torque, and driveability. Its a totally different car, this is how it should come from new! So for all of you unsure wether you should get your car remapped dont be, do it because you will love it! Toby - Golf 1.8T GTI 1998
My son and I had our cars re-mapped by Jason, a very nice bloke, professional, explained everything. Both cars ran well in standard form so we took a lot of advice from mechanics before deciding to re-map. Transformations are unbelievable, much more than expected. not only acceleration but also mpg and ,more importantly, driveability, power delivery is so smooth. Anyone thinking about re-mapping should give Jason a call and do it.
Seat Leon 2.0TDI 170 FR and seat Ibiza 1.9TDI 100
Hi there Just to let you know what an excellent job Jason has done to remapping my SEAT LEON 20V T FR. This car has been totally transformed with exceptional power and torque, the car hits the 0-60mph barrier in just 6.5 secs (previous 7.1) and the MPG has gone up from 33MPG to 38MPG, i just need to keep an eye on the speedo as it accelerates so quick, many thanks to More-bhp for their excellent service.....
Simon, Seat Leon 1.8T
Car good now. 0-60 in 7.5 seconds 1 second faster than before, 0-80 1.5 seconds faster. Smooth too.
Cheers John. VW Golf V 2.0 GT TDI DSG 140
HI Jason,Just to let you know I’ve received the ecu back this morning. What can I say, I’m over the moon with the results, my Passat is unbelievably quick now. It has far more low down / midrange power than I was expecting and a much snappier throttle response. I haven’t really needed to rev the engine over about 4000rpm yet and it goes like a rocket! So much fun! If any of your customers want to speak to me, give them my number, I’m more than happy to recommend you. Thanks again for the quick turnaround.
Regards Bruce, 1999 VW Passat 1.8T
Modified plus More-BHP remap dyno readouts:
These figures look impressive but the real story is found within the middle of the rev range. With the re-map the golf4 was producing 150bhp and 160ftlbs of torque at only 3500rpm. This resulting in an immense increase in torque AND power that you can really use on the road. No down shift needed. This really complements the average driver allowing faster acceleration out from the apex to make an early pass on the next straight piece of tarmac. After driving a 04 civic type r I have found that you must make sure the revs are high on the apex stay level with the golf. On slower more technical sections the golf will definitely pull stronger from the mid range.
Mark VW Golf GTI 1.8T 2000
My golf is a different car to drive,the torgue and power are mega,thanks so much for talking and explaining the whole process,would recomend it to anyone,thanks again.
Mick-donny, VW Golf 1.8T 150
Just been out in the van, perfect mate, so much better, I can actually accelerate uphill with the trailer loaded. It does feel smoother. Proper van now!
Thanks very much, it’s made all the difference.
"WOW! What a difference.... Car feels so smooth, once it hits boost the sound and feel is amazing. Jason let me watch what he was doing the whole time, it was very interesting and it's obvious that he knows what he's doing.
Why pay extortionate prices when more-bhp will offer the same service but with a smile?? Will be in touch for more work and will recommend whenever I can!"
Matt , Audi A3 1.8T AGU Engine, Warrington
"Very pleased with the excellent service & extremely quick turn around. What a huge difference for a small price, the added performance is more than i expected and is amazing!!!
AMAZING AWESOME BRILLIANT LOADS MORE POWER NO FLAT SPOTS THANKS JASON
Joanne. VW Golf GTI 1.8T
"You have already re-mapped this ECU for me less than a year ago, which I love by the way, just I'm after more power again (got the bug since the re-map), I thought the A3 was pretty bad before you did the re-map, ever since you did that I love it and I've had some quality races, its faster than a standard Civic type R."...

A post in discounts pointed to a local guy More-BHP so the email went....
What can you do for this gutless wonder ?
The Burstner A530 is a fine little RV, hold 70 on the flat but any UP and oh boy, the HGVs are swerving round us unless I rev it's nuts off which is not how I treat my motors.
Jason confirmed his price for a local fit and arrived. Car full of decent looking kit but in this case all he needed was his Sony laptop and the ODB2 interface. He downloaded the existing map and installed a new one.
Off we went, living on the Pennines we have no trouble finding some hills, but even before this I could tell something special has happened, the wheelspin in first on a damp road was the clue. The wheelspin in second confirmed this. I *was* deliberately provoking this with a heavy right foot for testing purposes.
Up the hills we flew, like driving a big wobbly sports car.
I gladly gave him a cheque and used the RV to do a run to Wiltshire, a round trip of 340 miles.
It was a different vehicle. The M6/M5 hills were no problem, only occasionally having to drop to 4th. I was constantly one gear higher than before and having to ease the throttle on wet roundabouts otherwise more wheelspin. This Burstner is a short wheelbase with a big back overhand, I'm sure there is not enough weight on the front.
Fuel consumption, can't tell, I set off on a part tank so was unable to do a proper check, I could not detect any significant difference.
So big thanks to Jason, a thoroughly nice no person. I didn't tell him my job is control systems software, I watched and listened and liked what I heard.
Can't wait for next year now, I had been apprehensive of hitting the Alps and crawling up them but now, provided the insurers don't shoot this down, we'll fly up the hills.
Brian. Fiat Ducato 2.0 JTD.
After searching the threads on MHF about engine tuning,I eventually decided on a re-map of the existing ECU.It was a choice between a Van Aaken smartbox or the re-map.Both of them I believe give similar results,and it depends on who you talk to which is the best.
What can a say mate but bloody fantastic, the throttle response is rapid and a wheel spinned in 2nd with my 18" rims on and that was me trying to pull away normally. Its like a new car, the change is unreal, will get one of those DV's next week when am paid m8.
Cheers Neil. VW Golf GTI 1.8T
I have just fitted the ecu and can't believe the difference,thanks
Best wishes Philippe. VW Golf GTI 1.8T
Jason..hi...thanks for today...journey back was excellent with engine very much smoother...made a great diffrence to van comfort...power good and mpg I think improved...cheers...John
