    Hey everyone,

    I have just bought a 2004 320cd sport and althought after a week of good economy and it going ok I am already thinking of a remap as I have heard that this can be done fairly reliably.

    I couldnt get hold of a decent 330d with the money I had but coming from a Honda S2000 the 320d feels a bit on the slow side!

    So, can anyone recommend which are the best companies to have a remap with and what sort of power gains I would be looking at as well as price please? The engine is an M47TUD20.

    I've tried to use the search but its not come up with anything.

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex.

    We do a lot of these , Power will be up by 40hp and 75nm's, the turbo will spin up lower down the rev range and hold out longer making it a lot quicker, It will also have more power lower down the rev range, less revs = less fuel being used so if driven well you should see a gain on MPG too..

    Hope this helps a little,

    Also were in Northampton and have a offer on for £250 all in for the 320d's


    Thanks Mike

    Sounds excellent, are you still based near Waitrose in Rushden? I know you were years ago...your surname isn't Hodder is it by any chance? I think I went to school with you lol!

    How long is the offer on for by the way and how long would you need the car for?

    Cheers,

    Alex

    185-190 running a bit more boost
