Significant Power Gains
You may wonder how so much power can be extracted from some vehicles. Certain vehicles offer unbelievable gains in power and torque following a Remap. Often the vehicles that offer the best increase in power and torque were severely detuned from factory. It is now common practice for a manufacturer to produce one engine, yet offer several different power options. For example, the Ford Transit 2.2 TDCI engine has four available power options: 85 PS, 100 PS, 125 PS, and 155 PS. How is this possible when the engines are all the same size and all have identical hardware? The difference comes down to the map loaded onto the ECU from factory. Basically the 85 PS engine is a detuned 155 PS engine, the 155 PS model can be tuned to 180 BHP, therefore the 85 PS model can also be tuned to 180 BHP. That is a final increase of 95 BHP.
