Renault Clio 182 Sport ECU Remapping by Chip and Tune

Andy has reported back on the ECU Remap we carried out on his Renault Clio 182 Sport. He is very pleased with what Chip and Tune have done, throttle response is better and the car has more torque. With the downloaded ECU Remap he had loaded the running wasn't as smooth and the exhaust note wasn't as crisp.
I'm waiting for an email from Andy to update me, which I will post on here and also on

Chip and Tune Clio 182 Remap

The file has been read for the Clio Sport 182 Sport. Due to being done out of hours with Alientech closed it will need writing tomorrow instead because of the type of ECU as posted previously. Being a petrol injected engine the gains won't be huge though Andy would be happy if the increase were as little as an extra 10bhp.
Looking forward to seeing how well it performs after the remap is installed, especially as Andy had previously loaded an off the shelf product himself before.
I will post the results in a few days.

First File to be read

Reading my first file tonight for a guy called Andy. He has a Clio Sport 182 which has already had some remapping done with software he purchased. I have asked him to remove this and set it back to standard file before I read his. The ECU is also Siemens which can need some extra info and as Alientech will be closed when Andy comes over I will have to read the file then email it acroos. Get it looked at tomorrow and then load it later if it needs more info. Andy is looking to maximize performance from his vehicle on this occasion. Being a petrol injected car the gains wont be anything like those from a Turbo Diesel, but still, there will be a difference.
It's funny, the first appointment, project or anything in life is alwas the most difficult!!!

"we sell any car" in Peterborough, have agreed to use Chip and Tune

I have had a meeting with Parvez recently who owns and operates a used car dealership called "We sell any car", fantastic name. Parvez has agreed to promote and use Chip and Tune to do all the ECU Remapping for clients wishing to have better fuel economy and performance. Their new site is opening shortly in Peterborough, due to their success they are relocating to a larger premises. Due to increased demand for their service they will offer extra services to customers such as wheels and audio and that's where Chip and Tune will come in to provide the ECU Remapping. This is very exciting as it will allow Chip and Tune to have an operating base for those that wish to have the work carried out at a dealership. The potential for referal is also brilliant. Thanks very much to Parvez and his team for agreeing to work with us in the future. Check out if you are looking for a great used car.

2 weeks and counting

Chip And Tune mobile ecu remapping service and engine diagnostics is nearly ready to go. Website is as near as ready. Site is very simple to understand and fairly clear about what we do. Any feedback is obviously great so comments appreciated. This is my first ever blog so it's a work in progress also.
Software and diagnostics equipment is all ordered and I'm awaiting arrival. Bought a Lap Top to carry out the remapping which is already here. Had 2 of my own cars done and think the results have been awsome on both my Turbo Diesel vehicles which is what made me decide to get involved personally.
