After participating in the scottish RR day @ star performance the bhp figures for my tdi 150 were slightly higher than expected with a custom remap as the only engine modifcation. Most of the people who are far more knowledgeable than myself have suggested it ain't possible to get 64bhp over standard with just a remap. On the day there was another 3 tdi 150's 2 producing 187 and i think 196 bhp respectivly mine came in at 214 they all ran near enough back to back . The car is pretty smokie when hammered but fine when driven normally. The car has run since it was modifyed in June without a hitch.

1. Has anybody else on the forum been mapped by wayne and what figures did you get ? or has anyone else had similar figures with no other mod's can anyone tell me why mine was so high ?

Must have been a RR problem as I cant believe you are getting 214bhp from a PD150, especially with just a remap.

I'd be very sceptical at anything more than 190bhp TBH.

Wayne's a good guy and he know's his stuff... he's also one of our dealers so offer's a whole host of different tuning solutions. If you're after someone to do some one off work for you I'd highly recommend him.

For the sake of your turbo, I would get the car remapped again, because it won't last long producing that level of power.

does this guy only deal with VAG stuff ?

also it is intresting that you got roughly 20bhp more than the others with this guy as remember the guy in Ireland who claims to be able to get 170 from a 110 non PD

that also is 20bhp more than the 150bhp qouted for other tuners

so it may be achievable but as said before, how long will the turbo last?

Craig to be honest i'm not sure if it's only vag.but to quote from page 88 of this month's PVW mag " dubsport draft in a well renowned mapping specialist in the north wayne @ chipwizard uses his own software,experience,and expertise tuning porsche cup cars !!!

never said anything about Astra Gsi's though [:D]
