Not just tuning boxes: ECU power remap for heavy haulage
Improved torque, power and efficiency (use of higher gears improves mpg)
Designed to leave all ECU safety features uncompromised
UK tuning specialist TDI-Tuning’s expertise has again been deployed to improve the pulling power of Scania R-Series trucks belonging to Norfolk-based Anglian Plant Hire, a company which provides contractors with engineering plant equipment. The company wanted the vehicles to perform better under heavy load, with great responsiveness and more available power.
TDI-Tuning’s ECU power remap on the 2010 Scania R-Series 1.3 was completed quickly and efficiently, resulting in an increase in power and torque by 45bhp and 90Nm respectively, bringing the total to an impressive 445bhp and 2190Nm. However, that is not all, as TDI-Tuning products not only release additional power and torque but also remap the delivery of the existing, meaning drivability, and torque spread across the gear ranges, are also improved.
“The tuning boxes we design and develop for heavy vehicles are specifically optimised to maximise productivity in these very demanding agricultural, engineering plant and heavy haulage sectors,” explains TDI-Tuning MD Graeme King.
“In an industry where productivity vs operating costs is of fundamental concern, we are well placed to advise on the best tuning method, whether state-of-the-art, cost-effective or easy-to-handle solutions. Tuning such vehicles so that they can spend more time operating in higher, more fuel-efficient gears, is a fundamental part of the TDI-Tuning ethos.
“As a leading tuning box manufacturer we also have extensive skill (and experience) with ECU remapping. It’s all about what is best for the client and on this occasion, we advised the customer that an ECU power remap was the best course of action.” This flexibility has ensured that TDI-Tuning is the go-to company for all business operators who wish to enhance the performance of their heavy equipment, be it on the farm, the site or the road: TDI-Tuning will enhance and improve without compromising on safety or quality of service.
TDI-Tuning has been one of the main operators in the tuning industry since 2008. Based in Chelmsford, Essex, it has a dealer network covering the UK and Ireland, a prominent presence in Japan and representative businesses in Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. TDI-Tuning’s R&D department is one of the largest in the UK, as the company designs and develops its own products.
