Here is some food for thought over the Christmas period;)

I have got plenty of interest of ECU remapping from USA members but understandably not many people wish to remove their ECU and send it across the world. Over the past few weeks I have came up with a possible solution:cool:

I am considering in travelling to America early next year, probably around the March / April time frame for 3 weeks.

If enough interest is gauged then I can bring with me my ECU remapping equipment with me and do a Group remapping in different states.
I plan in visiting New York and possibly into Canada pending on the holiday VISA I obtain. I will then make journey down south to other states and will be staying a few days a friends house in Florida.

I can remap the Touaregs and any other Euro diesels such as BMW, Mercedes, Audi etc...

Please register your interest here in this thread and forward on any ideas you have to make this work.

Aidan:wink:

havent followed everything

If i read this correct.....this gets rid of the dpf thing? i am assuming the physical piece stays and this just cuts the software off to it?

or am i reading this all wrong?

I would love to get rid of the "smoke screen" every few hundred miles.....

I'd be interested but I would love to not drive too far... Maybe ~250miles, significantly more than that and I rapidly lose interest. How long would it take? What's the cost?

Yes, the DPF will need to be physically removed then I can remap the ECU.

Costs may be somewhere in the region of 950 USD - I have come up with this price considering the flight costs and the USD - Euro exchange rates. I will confirm the price after Christmas if enough interest is gathered to go ahead.

I would be interested if you could make it to the Seattle area. I'm not too keen on mailing off my ECUs. Think you could offer some sort of device like the Flashzilla or Q loader that individual tunees could use provided they email you the logs?

I'm looking mostly for mileage gains, alter the EGR cycle to eliminate some of the soot, and a little more useable power for trailer towing.

Hi, I would be interested in dealing with anybody on here that would like to invest in a flasher unit that would read and write ECU files. They could read the file from a Touareg, Email it to me, I will tune it and mail it back. The file can then be uploaded back onto the ECU.
Naturally, there will be a reasonable profit margin for anybody that would wish to do this so long as they are capable.

Toronta, Canada ECU Remapping approx March or April.

1) Alexn


Add your name to the list people. A minimum of ten customers in Toronto will be needed to allow me to fly over and custom remap Touaregs or any other Diesel Powered European cars.

Also put your name if you are from a different part of the US and interested in a remap.

Jacksonville, FL. I'd drive across the state if necessary to get it done.

I'd also be interested in discussing the options of investing in the flash loader & partnering with you to do this stateside. What could one expect to pay for a flash loader?

PM me & we can discuss the option of a partnership.
Thanks, Matt
