Td5 Remap worth it?

TD5 Remap for Discovery & Defender

As the years have go on and the TD5 engine gets older and older it still has to be one of Land Rovers best ever produced engines! It’s extremely robust in its construction, has minimal electronics and is HIGLY tuneable even with the standard hardware. There has been no other engine that has been made by Land Rover that can carry this crown, sure the 300tdi is just as robust and simple however trying to extract extra power from one wasn’t as straight forward as it is with the TD5.

With expected gains with no hardware to be around 160bhp! For both the 10p and 15p engine variants (122bhp Defender & 136Bhp Discovery) put simply it’s a huge increase literally from just changing the core calibration or “remapping” of the ECU. Add some uprated hardware parts into the mix you can expect to see gains up to 250bhp!

All our td5 remaps are designed specifically for you, your vehicle and its current modifications meaning you are getting a truly bespoke td5 remap not just some generic file that has been copy and pasted 100’s of times before!

We can offer various stages or “levels” of tunes for your td5 with all software being charged at a flat rate of £200+vat. What this means is we do not charge you extra because you have modified your vehicle and we will map it to its current setup at no extra charge. This is because regardless of the modifications you have the process is still the same for us it just means we can push your vehicle harder if you have the correct hardware upgrades such decat, egr removal, turbo upgrades, air inlet modifications to list just a few

TD5 Remap Benefits

Here are the top benefits of a TD5 remap:

  1. Increase in Torque and Power

Through the remapping process, we will optimise many areas deep within the calibration of the ECU (remap) allowing for more torque and bhp at a given RPM.

By fine-tuning the engine in this way, you will have more torque and power. The engine will run much more efficiently  (depending on the type of tune you want) and you will feel that you no longer need to use quite as much pedal input to get the same speed.

  1. Better Performance and Driving Experience

  1. Better Fuel Economy

A TD5 remap can help you increase the mpg and get the most out of your fuel economy. Fuel returns vary drastically from customer to customer and vehicle to vehicle and we always say that you will see gains in mpg after a week or so of having a remap (basically once you’ve gotten used to the new found power and settled down from racing every one of the line haha)

  1. Better Throttle Response

If you are looking to improve the throttle and engine responsiveness, there is no better option than a TD5 remap. It can significantly enhance the throttle and engine response, making your driving experience even better. Many TD5 users who are concerned about the performance of the vehicle opt for a remap.

Some customer prefer there td5 remap to be more focused on torque to help tow various trailers, where as other customer want the absolute best from it. In this case they tend to opt for one of a Hybrid or VNT turbo packages again offering various options in terms of turbo designs specifically for the customers setup.

Also included in the price is maf delete (makes the ecu ignore what the sensor is doing and uses the MAP sensor for its fuelling calculations, so can be removed completely from the vehicle)

Hardcut/Popcorn is also included td5 remap if wanted (some hardware modifications are required for this option).

Various levels of smoke is available from coal train to no smoke.
