    Peugeot boxer 2003 Compass Avantgarde 400 RL 2003, 27000 miles. Is it worth remapping? What's the cost and who is in Scotland to do it?:Smile:

    One can of worms duly opened............

    Hi, you'll get a lot of strong opinions both for and against a remap. Out of warranty it might be worth it - if you do so, then much better to get a proper remap rather than a bolt on tuning box. I don't know who can do it up there but it might be worth contacting someone like wow tuning. Hope that helps a bit.

    You dont say what engine you have..
    I had a 2005 Fiat Ducato 2.8jtd.. A remap gave it a lot more torque and grunt up hills, MPG was the same but driving it was far better... Had the re-map on for about 4 years and no issues. Sold van with it re-mapped..

    I am waiting to do my 2.3 but as it's still only 18 months old I wanted to wait a while..

    Hi I got a quote from a company in Inverness for a Ducato 2.3 tdj 2007 at £250 but can't remember the name as only got the email the other day and now touring round Wales for 3 weeks. After some of the hills we have been up I'm certainly going to get it done when I get back North

    Engine type?

    Stay away from tunning boxes, they only trick the ECU into cold running mode. A re-map for 150 is to cheap imo, a proper re-map needs to be done on a rolling road to optimise changes to the ecu. Often the cheap re-maps are only tweaks made to the turbo (mechanical tweaks) but can give good results to low down torque but 150 quid for a couple of turns on a screw is a bit of a mis sell :Angry:

    Best thing I ever did for our Merc 313CDi. Now goes like sh*t off a shovel - even towing & saves 5mpg. £220 2 years ago.

    re map

    We`re just about to buy a new motorhome, had the current one remapped from new never had a fault with it, as someone said goes like the clappers and 25mpg plus from a 3 litre 29` long motorhome isn`t bad.
    We`ll definitely be getting the new Apache 2.3 litre remapped, as mentioned in previous post be sure to get a remap not a bolt on box. :thumb:
