Interesting Result on 115ps Renault Trafic 2010 Tune.

Sometimes the dyno surprises & this Vivaro is a good example. The van’s performance in mine & the customers opinion was  transformed yet it “only” made 135ps & 311nm on a local super honest Dyno Dynamics dyno.. it ran great prior to tuning & was very well maintained so I suspect they don’t make the specified 115ps as standard.. sadly i couldn’t make the session to load the stock file for a “before “ run.. It’s an epic tune that I have worked out for these over the years nonetheless so no need to change anything…

Many thanks ..hope your keeping well ..feel free to put this on your website ..will have to change van shortly so will be in touch ..

Road Test Report – 155ps Transit Custom

Hi Martin,

It is like a different van totally, I can hold a higher gear down to 2000 rpm and below which was pretty much impossible before, seems much happier on CC on the motorway in 6th gear no hunting or having to change down a gear when hitting an incline. The above was the main gripe.

Acceleration is much better than before through the gears.
Can also change up gears earlier or skip gears if joining motorway Etc, but where’s the fun in that.
But a van to drive in London the above makes a difference in traffic.

Have only driven on Sunday to work in London fuel seems to be better but too early to tell for sure, trip is showing 270 miles done and 240 to empty but gauge is only just below halfway so seems like an improvement, I will report back some more when I have more miles into it, but not the reason for the remap so a bonus if it is better mpg.

Only one small minus, seems not as quick from say 70 / 80 mph to 100mph plus as the last MK7 van, but could be the fact that the gearing is so high or to do with the DPF not sure maybe you have an idea?
Not sure as only tried it once and may be in my head?
But apart from that wonderful so far so good thank you   

Many thanks.

Mike
