    Question Disco 2 TD5 ECU Remap

    Hi All
    I have been doing some research about remapping my 2003 disco 2 td5 es auto
    and would like your help in making a decision, i understand that doing remap will likely shorten the life of the engine due to more pressure and strain on parts, i do know a madman with a egt monitor is also essential.
    What i would like to find out from people in the know is what different types of maps are there, what benefits where there eg

    Map: European Remap (just made this up)
    Performance: + 30kw
    Fuel Consumption: better urban - 10 open road -8 to the hundred
    Egt: 5degrees Increase in operating temp
    Installer: Landyonline, Torguetune, Steves Auto Clinc, landytech, etc
    Cost: R3500
    Kilos: 50000
    Problems: None, nothing replaced
    Opinion: Perfomance increase is great and i would do it again
    How: It works by ticking the computer that is running cooler and is below sea level

    If you don't know all the stuff still post some what you know, i am sure this will help td5 owners

    Thanks for all your input

    Im also considering remapping my Td5 defender but tricking the ECU in thinking that its running at sae level and cooler temp would cause the ECU getting false feedback regarding the mass air flow and therefore under/over fuelling.
    Isnt the remapping more in the line of altering the fuel maps or adjusting the time periods in which the injectors are injecting fuel?

    Map: Custom Remap
    Performance: Unknown, but I can spin a TD5 auto with muds now!
    Fuel Consumption: Better, more torque and much quicker to get to lockup @ 90km/h
    Egt: 50'C Increase in EGT Temp, none on cooling and head temps
    Installer: UFix Goodwood via TorqTune
    Cost: R4000
    Kilos: 295000
    Problems: None, already setup for full performance
    Opinion: Better throttle response, torque is up, much smoother engine
    How It works: Read your Map, send to TorqTune, 1h max later they send new custom file back, ECU get flashed with new map, you drive off smiling.

    Map: Torqtune + Unichip
    Performance: It feels like DOUBLE that of a standard TD5
    Fuel Consumption: 500km/tank but who cares really when you have so much under the foot...
    Egt: no idea, can see my coolant temp rise rapidly at low rpms (1000 - 1500rpm) under load
    Installer: Torqtune, Landytech (turbo and other mods), Steves Auto Clinic (Unichip)
    Cost: R13500 for the Turbo, R4000 for Torqtune map, Cant remember SAC bill (that was around the year 2000)
    Kilos: 120 000
    Problems: Its still not enough! I just know there is still lots more...
    Opinion: My brain still can not compute the power that comes out this 2.5L thing
    How: VNT turbo boosts from 1250rpm already (0.5bar) and does not stop till 4000rpm, Torqtune and Unichip just adds more fuel.
    Best regards

    Kilos: 86,000
    Problems: None, but will have to do the intercooler next.
