Blacksmoke Remap for MK5 Golf TDi BKD 140
« on: September 04, 2014, 11:21:09 PM »
Ive had a fair few niggles with this car as late ( i put up a thread the other day ) but ive now sorted most of them ive got ZERO fault codes on vagcom and the only 2 problems I have are slight turbo whine and i hate the gutless map on it. Its as flat as a witches tit under 2000k, there is literally no pull till you hit above 2000, the turbo is fine, no boost leaks, no fault codes, its just the way its mapped i think, its standard so never been remapped.

Anyway i was going to take it a local tuner but was told not to as all they do is wind the boost and fuelling up and youl find yourself needing a clutch, flywheel and turbo within weeks.

Id seen these blacksmoke remaps when i was looking at getting my MK4 done but headgasket went on that before I had chance to.

I understand you buy a cable of some sort off eBay and then send your map to blacksmoke and theyl send you a map file back to load onto the ECU ? Is this safe to do with minimal chances of it going tits up? Im not sure if the blacksmoke guy is on here, i was on UKMKIVS before but it seems dead on there when it comes to MK5 related stuff

Im not fussed about BHP and torque, i just want it to pull through the rev range better, i want the power to come in around 1500 revs not 2250 and then massive oooof in torque/power.

I've just had my centre silencer deleted on my edition 30. Was surprised at the difference it makes.
