2012 on MK7 Transit Customs ( Euro 5 ) , right up to 2017, all the share the same engine & ECU & now can all now be tuned tuned to at least 175ps / 435nm ( that’s at least 185ps when measured on a cheap dyno 😉 ) .100mph speed limiter defeat also inc. trickier late software 125’s.These will do the clock once I’ve done my bit (125mph)
The dyno printout from a 100ps hire van I tuned 2 years ago, shows a good gain ( 450nm max ) & the tuning has improved further since..I upgraded it to 155ps prior to tuning it to see what a stock 155 makes…
If maxing out your new van isn’t your cup of tea I can alternatively take it to 155ps or on the regular Transit, to 140ps using factory software via a simple exchange ECU..
Warning – The ECU position on Transit Customs is effectively a water trap so any disturbances must be made fully watertight again. Tuning requires ECU opening & replacement security bolts etc. Its an involved process compared to most other vans & ecu’s – It takes longer to do this part ( well ) than it does to actually tune them!
I have seen several bodge jobs with damaged ECU’s & wrong security bolts etc , & 2 stories of subsequently leaking ECU’s costing thousands to replace etc all done by recognised names in UK tuning so choose your Man carefully on this one! Vantuner takes time & great care to make the job as invisible as possible..bring a book to read basically 😉

Martyn, just some initial thoughts on the map. I think You are underselling what a difference the tune makes .It’s like a totally different van. Miles quicker through the gears, huge improvement in pickup in all gears. On the motorway there’s tons of torque and pace and no more gear hopping……80mph then drop to 45-50mph and happily can leave it in 6th.Oh & still maintaining 30-31mpg whilst I’m ragging it its tits off!
Well well well impressed so far! Thanks very much! Super job
