Owning a two year old Navara auto I cannot really see the need for a remap as the power and performance is brilliant compared to any other truck I recently demoed. these modern engines of just over 2 litres are producing an awful amount of power and torque, I personally wouldn't want to push them any harder. Economy on the Navara aint bad either, service and back up From dealers and Nissan is another (long)story though!
The way I understand it is that the engines are programmed to all run within safe parameters for any climatic conditions it may find it's self in. This could be negative degrees in the Arctic to 50°c's in the Sahara. With all vehicles programmed the same in the factory.I've never got my head round remapping. Surely if it's that simple to improve mpg and power then it would come out the factory like that?
Im toying the idea of getting mine done ,,its a 3ltr so stands at 231 bhp now but my garage manager said it can easily go to 280 and its just plug and playSorry to resurrect an old thread but just wondering did anybody ever get a navara re mapped?? I have one and I carry a lot of weight in the back all of the time and the extra power would be nice.
Plug and play maps just leave you riding around with a grenade with the pin out under the bonnet imho. Proper custom map on rolling road is what you want and by someone who knows what they are doingIm toying the idea of getting mine done ,,its a 3ltr so stands at 231 bhp now but my garage manager said it can easily go to 280 and its just plug and play
My garage wouldnt do it if it wasnt a quality remap ,,ive been using them for 10 years and they know their job ,,theres another place in town that specialize in mapping and they have rollers in the floor for Dyno testingDepends on the quality of the remap. You could also fudge it up royally
