Maybe so Mike, but without a shadow of doubt I am not the only 'unlucky' one out there! Maybe I'm being pessimistic here, but another way to phrase it would be to say I would have been lucky if I'd had no problems.
I stand by my point that not enough is done upfront to explain the risks
Going back to the OP question and the reason I took the time to post:
Can remapping cause premature component failure? ( turbo / clutch etc )
Yes it can, not always, but it can...
Not enough people are clear about this!
Apart from this I love the car, it drives brilliantly post remap, and is excellent on fuel. I am not preaching or bitching, there are clear benefits, but beware of the risks!
hey, i have been really considering a remap even i noticed some negative feedbacks about it.. but you really gave a deap infos , now i'm totally covinced ... all what u said make sense..
my engine produce 163 hp .. it's already powerful compared to a 4 cylinder.. the problem is jsut people always aren't feeling enough
so i will be thinking about a catback stainless steal exhaust n even a stainless steal exhaust manifold and a egr bypass kit also wud be a stainless steal .. and that's .. these modifications will only give a little bit of power gain and will make the engine breath better and run smoother .. with no risks.. what u think about what i'm planning
I have an e46 320d with 171k on had it mapped it only caused a fule pressure sensor to fail with in the first month after that ivbhad no other engine faultsi had the car mapped at 150k
Most other tuners out there use too much boost and fuel or are just files buyers so they don't know how to tune correctly or don't know what they are putting on your car
Most other tuners think getting more power is just a case of adding more fuel to iq map and adding loads more boost lol
I've owned my 330d for 8ish years, done 90k in it myself. I had that mapped by bwchiptune when I got it, car started to slip the clutch at 155k (original clutch from factory) so in my case the clutch and the rest of the car was and still is fine.
