    Default Ford Ranger 3.2 Cat removal and ECU Remap by Force Maps (Bullit Oosthuizen)

    I intended to only remove the CAT but after seeing what Bullit can do, I decided to go for the re-map, this is a Performance/Economy map so nothing too hectic.

    I must say, Bullit knows his stuff and did a great job. My Ranger now goes like a bullet, I should have removed the CAT earlier, it was blocked quite a bit and surely hampered the Turbo's performance.

    Bullit is a really good tuner, he first mapped my v9x last year with towing heavy loads in mind. Even a 3ton trailer combo could not get the EGT's above 690'C. Then I after I upgraded my turbo he changed the mapping for the new turbo and well same thing happend. More power for less fuel and EGT's stay the same not once going over 690.

    My v9x has done 35k km since then.
    Nissan Navara v9x - For towing
    Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost - For the wife.
    80 Series cruiser - To use the fuel I save on the other two.
    Hilux - Work mobile

    New compressor wheel that the blade geometry, angle and size was increased. Then they exhaust wheel and vanes was replaced with the one's from the bmw 3.0lt diesel.
    With this turbo you cannot run the standard size exhaust and intercooler but those I upgraded long ago.

    After the first tune it was to powerfull for the gearbox so bullit turned down the boost a bit and now it's happy. The gearboxes on the v9x are rated for 700nm.

    Hi,

    So after a couple of months, everything still running good?

    I have a 3.2 Manual with 30 000km on and was considering a remap.

    How does this effect warranty?

    Just want a little extra oompf and some better fuel consumption.

    Just your thoughts?

    You will loose your warranty.

    Removing a CAT, remapping ecu, messing with turbo etc. All will void the warranty.

    Extra oomph and better fuel consumption are exact opposites! Mother Nature (physics) gives nothing for free, the amount of fuel you burn is more or less equal to the amount of energy (oomph if you like) you get....

    And yes, you tinker like that you also kiss your warranty good buy....
