    I own a linea mjd crossed 1L. The car behaves slow at times and becomes a pain to drive in city and also the noise is so high during highways. I would like to post the conversation that I had with Viezu people. The team quotes that there are three remaps. Blue optimization with gains of 9 bhp and 15nm torque. Performance with gains of 20bhp and 40nm of torque. Racing with gains of 25 bhp and 50nm of torque but with modifications (exhaust and intercoolers). Now the thing is there is no dyno or may be any sort of test conducted to show the improvement. They claim that the driver would feel the difference and also get the work done as per the requirement of the driver. Also they charge a little less when compared to other people and I am thinkin of going with this team. Can some body share their insight towards this and let me know the difference between wolf and others like Viezu. I see Viezu also are specialists in the European countries.

    Well a remap is a remap, there would be hardly any difference between any others remaping firms,IMHO at least...
    Go for the one which u feel confident and which give u best deal,

    As far as dyno is concerned , u can buy a proper(original) elm 327 and download the paid app called tourqe pro. Will cost u under 1500/- for sure but its worthy
    U can see how much ur car is generating and the how much torque it is producing.

    Hope that helps

    ^^this should work for you
    Also ur car doesn't need Bluetooth ,this dongle is Bluetooth based, u can pair it to your phone via Bluetooth,
    Firstly, insert this dongle in the obd port, put the key on mar, on your mobile's Bluetooth , pair it with obd2 named via 0000 or 1234 pin, start the torque app and you are ready to go.

    your car has completed 1L, its a huge risk going for a remap at this stage.you need someone who will thoroughly inspect your car prior to the remap to see if the internals can handle the additional power

    Totally agreed. The car must have taken lot of beating in these 1 lakh kms. Integration of additional power with these aged parts is the difficult part.

    Well I don't think remaping a 1lac kms run car would be problem as far as its in proper working condition, only issue would be it will need bit of extra care after remap as its already crossed 1 lac kms.
    Isn't it....

    that's true. the remapper should be well aware on how much he can push it and also have a check on the service history of the vehicle before the remap. A bit more care is required compared to a younger heart

    Its basically pushing the limits of turbo,
    A good spin in a car can easily tell how healthy the turbo is...

    You would be surprised to hear that, many tuners across the globe operate even without seeing the car,:)

    @vtlreja. The scanner is sold out in the link that you have given here. Can you please let me know any good devices in amazon as there are so many listed as elm327 and some of them have reviews that they don't work at all.
