Eventful times at A1

“Totally different car “
”Performing 100% better”
“Running like a dream”

Last week was quite eventful.
Had a surprise visit from our old friend Nick Farrow .
If you’ve heard of the “Flux capacitor car “ then you’ll probably know that it’s a record breaking, street legal, electric car.
1/4 mile in under 10 seconds and 1200 lb/ft of torque!!
Nick has been involved with this electric monster from early days. We had a very interesting chat about electric performance , retrofit etc .
Electric retrofit is currently possible – but it’s expensive . No doubt this will change in the coming years .
A performance mod to keep an eye on!

On Friday we had the pleasure of Carl and Ben from Shark Performance.
Shark are renowned for their VW Audi and Volvo tuning. Shark tuned cars are consistent winners in the Milltek VW Racing Cup series.
Pleased to announce we are now able to provide race-bred remaps from Shark Performance.

More cracking cars in for remap this week and another one we had to decline until it’s repaired.

With 175 five star reviews on FB you are assured of a good result .

Why we charge more.

Cheap remaps – why we charge more

Many people think all remaps are the same and all tuning companies are the same – but this is not the case.

Let’s break this down a bit and explain in more detail .

1 ) The cheapest of remappers inevitably use Chinese copies of proper remapping tools .
These are a fraction of the price , use inferior components , have no support from the manufacturer , and can damage your car’s ecu .

We have invested nearly £20k in genuine remapping tools.
( just in case anyone reading this thinks they might be worth pinching , they aren’t. They can all be rendered useless if we contact the manufacturers)

2) Vehicle health check – or lack of.
Any decent vehicle health check will take some time , need some diagnostics and be carried out by someone with a bit of experience that knows what to look for .
The cheap remapper will inevitably have a chinese clone diagnostic tool and do a basic check for fault codes – if you’re lucky .

All our remaps include a vehicle health check before remapping .
Checks include the following as a minimum:

1) On road test of turbo performance.
Checking that turbo is boosting properly – very few remappers do this.

2) DPF condition – remapping a blocked or partially blocked DPF is just bad practice .

3) Fault Code check – pretty obvious check to do , but looking at when the fault occurred and under what conditions is something not everyone can do .

4) Pretty obvious this one – checking air filter condition . If the car can’t breathe properly then you won’t get the best results . This can also contribute to DPF blockage .
Every week we see filters that need changing

5) Another obvious one – oil level and condition .
Absolutely essential check if the car is going to get more power . We have seen some shockers!
From 5 litres of excess oil to vehicles with 100k that have never had an oil change .
Quick tip – if you want your engine to last then change the oil more often than is recommended .

6) For petrol vehicles – Ignition checks and adjustments .
On road test we will drive in such a way as to put the vehicle’s ignition under increased load . Any misfire under these conditions will reveal ignition faults that needs rectifying before remap .

6a) Petrol cars again – some vehicles ignition systems are a little bit on the weak side – fit those vehicles we reduce spark plug gap slightly. This prevents premature ignition coil failure that can be caused by the extra ignition load that is a consequence of a remap.

Will continue this post next week .

Excellent gains on 335D

“good guys here that know their stuff!
“made a hell of a difference”
“can’t believe the difference, excellent

Now over 190 five star reviews

Some cracking cars in for remapping recently.
Most notably, a pair of BMW 335D X-Drive.

The 335D is a best of both worlds machine. In standard form it delivers brutal amounts of torque, laying down 0-62 in 4.8 seconds. Yet it still retains over 40 mpg in normal driving.

One of the best upgrades for these is a Wagner intercooler.
The remap and the Wagner will take these to around 400 BHP.

Remap price for F series 335d is £350 inc Vat
Wagner intercooler is £685 inc Vat .
Total : £1035
Buy both together and price is £1000, plus we’ll include free fitting .

We remap all kinds of cars and vans. There are very few cars out there that can’t be improved.

Cracking vehicles in for remap recently .
Including a lovely Audi RS6 for Shark remap and a stunning Mustang GT 5.0.

Transit Custom remaps are proving popular – good power and economy gains on these .

Had a few motorhomes in. They always need a bit of extra to get up the hills.

Regularly seeing VW Audi in for software reversal.Some cars experience running issues after dealer software update – we can reverse this .

0% Finance option is still popular . Cost is split into 4 manageable payments at no extra charge .
This can be used for remaps or anything performance related such as exhaust , intake kit , intercooler etc .
Save even more by bundling your remap with a performance exhaust from Scorpion, Milltek , Cobra or Jetex .
Or with an intercooler from Airtec or Wagner.

Need your Transit Custom Remapping?

All Transit Customs can now be remapped without removing the ECU

This means no physical evidence of ecu removal . Security bolts and security cage are completely untouched .

We have invested £5k in a remap tool that enables tuning of ALL Transit Customs through diagnostic socket .
Even brand new models with the latest engine ecu.

✳️What are the gains?
All engine variants will tune to approx 175 to 190bhp and have better fuel economy.

✳️What does it cost ?

All 2.2 models are now £325
All 2.0 Ecoblue are now £350

Common questions:
1) How can we tune the 100bhp model to 180 bhp safely ?

Simply because Ford use the same engine and drivetrain throughout the range . The only difference is the software . The 100 and 125 BHP 2.2 engine is exactly the same as the 155bhp model.
They can all be tuned to around 180 BHP

Same principle applies to the 2.0 Ecoblue engines . The 105 and 130 have the same engine as the 170 and can be tuned to around 190 BHP

2) Will warranty be affected ?
We always say it can be affected. Regardless of vehicle or manufacturer.

3) How long does it take ? Can I wait while it’s done ?
About 90 minutes . Yes, waiting room with tea and coffee. Also places to eat and shops nearby .

4) Why people choose A1 Remapping ?
For most it’s the 195 five star reviews or a recommendation.

5) What is the lead time ?
Weekdays- we can usually do same day or day after .

6) What else do you do for Transit Customs?
Speed limiter removal and addition with genuine Ford diagnostic.
Software security updates ( removes door lock vulnerability issue)
DPF experts . Diagnose, clean and fix DPFs for public and trade .
