In Topic: 1.4 Tdci / Mk6 - Chipping A Good Idea?

Hi mate,
Fitting a Tuning Box will give you the torque you need for more "drive" so you do not need to work the engine as hard and you will be able to use a higher gear because of this..
Why would you not want a remap? It is far better than a tuning box unless it is down to cost..

Hi Bazza,
Remapping is the best way of getting more out of your engine than a tuning box. A remap alters all your ecu settings via new software written for your car.
A Tuning Box the fuelling so is more limited to the changes it can make.
With a reputable Remapping company you will also get a good warranty, our's is "lifetime", whereas with a tuningbox you will not get more than around 3 years.
A remap on your Galaxy will give 30bhp/80nm torque which will transform the way it drives. You will find it easier for towing etc, and it will need less gearchanging so top gear will be used more as less effort is needed due to the increase in torque..:) And you should see a gain in fuelsaving..:)

Hi as posted above, disconnecting your battery makes the ECU relearn it's values so you should normally see a difference, also worth doing if you change to shell v power etc..:)

Hi mate, been a long time since i did any work on older engines..:) if engine is running on for a few sec's after being turned off, then it's likely to be pre-ignition, usually down to carbon build up in cylinder head, needs taking off and de-coking as we used to call it..
Just a build up of carbon soot in head and intakes...
