Rover 75 MG ZT Diesel Remap
Now we all know the Ron's Synergy does a great job on our CDT/CDTi's however on my last CDT I had an Upsolute remap which provided great response in 4th or 5th from 40mph onwards but didn't pull at low revs so I added a tu3b and had great response across the rev range. When I upgraded to my new CDT I added a Synergy2 and although a lot better than standard I still think the response is lacking compared to my old CDT.
So I have been thinking of getting it remapped and there a chap on here called Pocketbike (matt) who has been mapping 45 TD's to around 150bhp and will do the CDT to the same level or maybe more depending on smoke. Matt charges a lot less than the Upsolute/CCtech guys and for about 3 remaps done as a group he has quoted £180.....not bad since the official x-power remap costs £200+ and only takes it up to 135bhp.
I suppose this type of performance enhancement differs from Ron's box in that it is invisable on the car, whether that's good or bad depends on your view point. I would have both the remap and Ron's box although Matt states that he could remap to an equivalent level as the remap and Synergy.
Anyone interested? or your opinions !
