Re-map: Something to think about?

I was out in the 993 today on a rare (too rare) excursion - piccy below

As I was driving I could not help thinking that the car, being 19 years old (therefore a pre varioram), would surely benefit from a trip to see Wayne.

It would be a good opportunity to dyno the car and see...

1) How much of its orignal 272 bhp has gone AWOL;
2) How much torque has been lost and where it is being produced in the rev range
2) How much better its perfromance could be if the engine mapping was optimised.

I don't push the car into the higher revs too often so I am probably not getting the full benefit of the torque most of the time - which comes in at 5,000rpm(ish). I feel that a re-map might enrich the driving experience through...

- sharper throttle response
- higher torque - especially lower in the rev range, making the performance more accessible.
- higher overall power output.

I know that a lot of varioram cars have seen some fairly dramatic improvements, especially in the BHP figures - but understand that the earlier pre-varioram cars offer less opportunity in this respect.

Two other questions would be in my mind...
- How it would affect the car's value (I am not so bothered by this as the car is definitely a keeper)
- How the Insurance premium would be affected - I hope that, as it is on a classic policy, any increase would be pretty immaterial)

How do others feel on this? :?:

Edit for Mods: This topic appears to have posted multiple times (not sure how). Please can you delete the other threads :oops:
 
I really want to get mine done. Like you I would hope for better drivability and mapping for the higher octane fuel we probably all use.
My worry is that my engine is on 140k, and although my specialist always comments on how strong it is would a remap be kind to the old dear?

Wonder if we could get a group buy on a remap :?:
 
I'm having mine done by Wayne later today :grin:

I will update my journal in due course............

I presume we're talking about Wayne Schofield here?

I had my old boxster done by him a couple of years ago after i'd done some mods to it. He worked wonders with the map and even sorted out some issues I hadnt noticed until he'd finished!

The guy is a genius with that stuff!

I thought 9M was doing it :dont know:
 
He uses their dyno in Warrington :wink:
 
He uses their dyno in Warrington :wink:

so I get best of both worlds ie I get to snoop around Ninemeister projects at the same time (hopefully) :D
 
This is definitely something that I want to get done now that I have the 200 cell cats fitted.

I'm only 20 mins from 9M so it's pretty handy that Wayne now uses their dyno.

Be very interested to see how you get on today Jon.
 
Id be interested in this too at some point :popcorn: :popcorn:
 
Hi Chaps,

Yeah interested to hear how you get on Jon. I find when you pull out of a roundabout in 2nd, that first sort of 20-40mph feels like there just isn't much there - but i assume they are all like this until you get above 4k revs or so? I am comparing it to my old 420bhp RS4 so not a fair comparison. But as soon as you get in to the higher revs its a lot of fun and pulls like a train....!!

I guess you just have to keep the revs high... but at 20mph i shouldn't be going into 1st should I??? Tip box by the way.....

So will the remap help in the lower revs??

Lig.
 
Had mine remapped a couple of years back by Wayne. At his own premis I might add.

In a nutshell:
In=245BHP varioram system not working.
Out=300BHP with Varioram frigged.
improvement in overall fuel consumption.

Was told it should be good for a few more BHP now the VRam is fixed and working properly.

Result= Well worth the trip up and money spent.

IIRC people say that Non-VRams benefit very well from a re-map.
 
I would be interested in this too. Would Wayne do a "group buy"?

Will be fitting de-cat this winter lay up so next spring would be good.......
 
You could try a group buy, but TBH, spring is Wayne's busiest time when the race teams want their cars prepared for the coming season.
The biggest problem with Wayne was always trying to get through to him. His ansafone was always full. You have to call, leave a message and wait a week or two for him to call back, then book an appointment for about 4-6 weeks ahead. :frustrated:
Unless things have changed.:dont know:
Good luck.
Steve.

Can you send me his number please? I am off work until 1st Oct so providing he can fit me in I'll get it done....
