My remap was customized and tested on dyno. So version 4 of the original remained. They changed some values on the remap to be more suited to my car. So instead of +50HP and 75nm i got + 65HP and +110nm of torque. Also they mentioned that it is not making more particles so dpf is not going to be needing more cleaning. So far I would say that its true, i hardly notice that is cleaning.what do you mean by "tweak the remap to the waer level of Your car engine"?
There should be something but my logic was because XF S with 275ps comes in 355 as standard and 240ps version comes with 326, probably insurers could argue braking power is not enough to stop a car with that HP within spec.is that legislated?
e.g cars with X bhp must have discs of Y
I have a weak memory that Michael onces said the part number for injectors are different. I haven’t checked thoughsorry, just realized I forgot to finish what I wanted to say in my last post.
So, as both 211 hp and 240 hp engine variants can be software boosted to 290 hp, one would presume they are identical, hardware-wise. Also torque can be boosted to 570/575 Nm respectfully.
However the S model with 275 hp can be boosted to 325 hp and significantly more torque, so one has to presume that there are non-software components in this S engine variant allowing this to be achieved.
I think you may be right Gav.. I also 'seem' to recall the differences work along the lines of it's the same 'bare' ECU/PCM until programmed on the production line and can't be reprogrammed afterwards, the workshop manual definitely says that the ECU/PCM has to be new as a used one can't be reprogrammed, I read that part this afternoon.Funny I have a week memory to Michael said there was no difference in the injectors parts and the difference was only software (ecu)
Interesting. We have similar encrypted software for our high-end fluorescent microscopes that only Zeiss/Leica have access to, not us as end users or our technical support staff.I think you may be right Gav..

It is probably true that dealer level SDD can't reprogram a used one, probably not even JLR tech specialists, with their higher level SDD access, that get sent out to help troubleshoot at dealers can't either.. but, I'll bet JLR very senior technicians/developers have access to the higher levels again to be able to do that though.. but would never admit it..
@08292 & @Onotole may have the knowledge.. or at least have a good idea how you may be able too...
