The Td5 engine responds well to tuning and our bespoke remapping helps increase the vehicle flexibility and overall drivability as well as increasing power & torque and in most circumstances, improved fuel economy.
Land Rover claimed power output of 120bhp can be increased dramatically, giving the vehicle improved towing ability, improved response and most importantly making your can more fun to drive!
We program each car individually to suit the level of modification and customer requirement with bespoke maps developed with TD5 Inside to compliment our products.
We offer various methods of remapping your ECU –
– First is to bring your car to our workshop in Herefordshire.
We undertake basic diagnostic checks prior to tuning so we can advise of anything likely to impact performance.
We then read and modify the ECU program, rewrite to the car and thoroughly test before you drive home. Please allow around 2-3 hours.
– Second is suitable if you have a Nanocom diagnostic tool; we can email tuned maps for you to program to your car.
– Third is to send us your ECU for us to program, allow a few days turnaround.
– Fourth is we offer a “plug and play” replacement ECU with tuned file (subject to availability)
Note – 1999 to 2001 models with ECU part number starting MSB will require ECU re-chip rather than remap unless you wish to purchase a later ECU.
Later flashable ECU models have part number beginning NNN.
Our maps are developed in conjunction with Td5 Inside
We generally prefer not to describe levels of tune as “stages” as we tailor an individual tune to suit your needs.
However, typical examples are as follows –
Stage 1 – a mild tune where no other modifications have been made to the car – around 150bhp, improved response and flexibility.
Stage 2 – in conjunction with uprated intercooler, EGR and good air filter – around 180bhp, greatly improved drivability combined with improved economy provided by the intercooler. Ideal for every day use and towing
Stage 3 – modified and competition cars – around 210bhp, hybrid turbo, special intake and exhaust system.
Stage 4 – highly modified competition cars up to 250bhp!
It is essential the vehicle is 100% healthy and has been well maintained to provide optimum performance. We would expect regular servicing, clean air filter, non restrictive air intake and exhaust etc.
We strongly advise installing an uprated intercooler to prolong engine life and improve performance.
