Fuel Economy – General Information
Most turbo diesels and some turbo petrols can see an increase in fuel efficiency after a good quality remap. If your Alfa Romeo is a turbo diesel or turbo petrol you may benefit from up to 15% extra MPG.
There are many wild claims and misleading guarantees made about this on the internet. The reality is that fuel efficiency is affected by many factors such as driving style, vehicle loading, air temperature and humidity, tyre pressure, condition of engine, air filter and other variables.
After we have carried out our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning service, we suggest to customers to calculate any fuel savings over a decent period of time, typically 12 months of average driving. It is more reliable to measure your “tank fills Vs mileage covered” than to rely on your Alfa Romeo 156′s trip computer.
Over a typical year of driving, a saving of between 5% and 12% may be possible on turbo diesels and between 4% and 10% on turbo petrols. In some rarer cases greater savings of up to 15% may be seen and very occasionally even more. In some cases no saving will be seen, although this too is rare.
In any event, even after carrying out our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning service, fuel savings can be affected by the factors mentioned above and other factors out of our control therefore Performax ECU Remapping Ltd only provides these fuel saving figures as a general indication of what may be possible.
Fuel savings are not possible on vehicles not fitted with a turbo.
Our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning service will also ensure:
- Noticeable throttle response increases
- Your Alfa Romeo’s power is distributed more evenly throughout the RPM range
- Any turbo lag is reduced and often removed completely
- Any flat spots are reduced and often removed completely
- Much crisper throttle response in each gear
Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning Process
In most cases we will attend your premises to carry out our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning service. The job should take approximately 2 hours.
The first step is to drive your 156 and then carry out diagnostic testing to make sure the vehicle has no stored fault codes.
Next we copy the original software file from your Alfa Romeo and use this as the starting point for the software remapping upgrade.
We always keep a copy of the original on our servers. You are welcome to have a copy of this original file if you like. It is a master file and can be used by any tuner to return your vehicle to standard.
We then make changes to several parameters in the software and upload the changed file back into your Alfa Romeo.
The final stage of our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning process is to drive your Alfa Romeo with you to make sure you are happy with the outcome.
If you do not feel the gains at the time of the remap you will not be asked to pay for the work. Simply tell our technician on the spot and he will remove the software.
Mechanical and Electrical Breakdown Warranty
If your Alfa Romeo has covered under 90000 miles from the date of first registration, has been well cared for and serviced according to the manufacturers service guidelines, it will be covered by our 12 month / 30000 mile mechanical and electrical breakdown warranty. This covers your Alfa Romeo for the next 30000 miles, up to a total of 90000 miles traveled or 12 months whichever is the sooner. Click here for warranty details.
Software Functionality Guarantee
The software for our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning service comes with a lifetime functionality guarantee.
Performax ECU Remapping Ltd
We are an independent tuning company with a small team of highly experienced tuners. We cover most of the UK, carrying out our Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD 136 Diesel Tuning service as well as more complex upgrades for vehicles with tuning protection.
Additionally, in our lab, we ‘bench’ remap Alfa Romeo vehicles that cannot be remapped serially via the diagnostics port.
Performax is not part of a tuning franchise group. We are not a franchise agent and you will not find our software for sale anywhere else. This is an important factor to consider when choosing your tuner.
Do you want quality software from independent experts, or cheap but unpredictable software from a discount chain? For the sake of £50 to £80, is it worth risking your vehicle by letting a “dealer” install software he knows nothing about?
Alfa Romeo 156 DPF / FAP Removal
Some Alfa Romeo diesel vehicles are fitted with a DPF – Diesel Particulate Filter (sometimes called an FAP – Filtre A Particule). At no extra cost, as part of a remap, we can remove the DPF programming to facilitate physical removal of the filter itself by your mechanic.
Please note that on some Alfa Romeo vehicles, DPF removal is not possible.
Alfa Romeo 156 EGR Valve Removal
Some Alfa Romeos are fitted with an EGR (Exhaust Gas Recycle) Valve. At no extra cost, as part of a remap, we can remove the EGR programming to facilitate the fitting of a blanking plate by your mechanic. or we can simply close the EGR valve permanently.
Please note that on some Alfa Romeo vehicles, EGR Valve removal programming is not possible.
Speed Limiter (Removal or Installation)
On many Alfa Romeo’s we can remove the software speed limiter. Please call to discuss this.
It is also possible to add a speed limiter to many vehicles and some case in-gear RPM limiters can be added.
Removal or addition of speed limiters, where possible, is carried out at no extra cost as part of your remap.
