Default Re: Petes : 30% off on Stage 1 Remaps

I line in chennai and i reached out to Raghul of Petes Coimbatore for remapping my Vento TDI which is suffering sluggishness due to VW emission 's update fix. Since he travel to chennai every week he agreed to do the remap at no extra cost (only 14,250 for remap and they need 3 working days to come back and fix the update one. Help me with my below questions:
1) My car is due for 2nd year service - should i need to wait till Dec or grab the offer now - More than the offer it's the excitement of getting back the lost power and couple of highway drives planned before December, i wanted to get it done immediately - but at the same time i am concerned VW should not reflash the ecu during the 2nd service - Any suggestions
2) Will petes give me a Challan or receipt acknowledging that they took my car's ECU? Should i insist for one.
Please let me know,Thanks.

4) I l live in chennai and will i be in a position to use their service from chennai itself.[/url]
I may be able to answer your queries partially.

1. There were no complaints from any of BHPian's after petes remap. However we should not forget that we are altering several engine parameters to squeeze more power, so there may be more stress on the engine than stock.
2. Warranty will be void, If VW finds that you have tampered ECU.
3. Petes will be updating the ECU free of cost later, even if VW updates ECU.

P.S: I am in the process of remap my 1.6 TDI Skoda Rapid. Damage to my pocket will be 16,250/-.

A BHPian shares his experience of remapping his Vento TDI from Pete's:

Quote:
On 18th Sep, I confirmed to Rahul (from Uber Werkstatt - dealer of Petes in Coimbatore) on my decision to remap and fixed an appointment for 7 pm in evening. Rahul travel to Chennai every week end and leaves for Coimbatore by Monday night, so there was no extra cost associated for me to bring him to Chennai.

Rahul arrived at my residence on 18th evening and performed the following: 1) Battery terminals were disconnected 2) Air filters were removed 3) ECU was removed and he took the same with him and left for Coimbatore the same night. He is expected to come back to Chennai on 22nd morning and do the remapping. The plan is for him to unlock the ECU at his workshop and make it readable and writable. Three days went like 3 years for me and I missed my car much.

On 22nd Rahul arrived by noon and fixed the ECU into the vehicle, replaced the air filter and connected the terminal and started taking a copy of the stock ECU and then he left to his home in Chennai to get the software edited. He again arrived in the evening but due to sever issues we have to wait for 30 minutes. Once the server was up and running, he made the ECU remapping done successfully in matter of 10 minutes. Following are my observations:

• We started the vehicle and it started in a single crank – engine noise was considerably reduced – RPM during idling came down from 1100 to 800.

• Took the car for a test drive but due to rains and hectic traffic we could not take the vehicle more than 2600 rpms and have to come back home – but for sure I was able to experience the sudden surge of power at its wheels from 2000 rpms itself and I was excited. Waited till 11 pm expecting traffic will settle down by then but it hot happen and hence I could not test it again.

• Next 6 days was busy for me in office and I happen to drive the car only in bumper to bumper traffic for short distance(20kms.day). I had plans to go to my home town on 28th and was eagerly waiting for the day to come so that I can test the vehicle on highways. On 28th I started early from office and reached home by 4:30 pm to pick my wife and son – Loaded all the luggages and started the car only to realize that my car won’t start – it showed up battery/alternator symbol. I was paranoid that this issue should not be related to remap – called up Petes Rahul and he assured that it could be battery issue and certainly not related to remap. The local battery dealer confirmed me that battery went dead and needs to be replaced, he had only 65Ah stock with him instead of 60 AH and he tried convincing me to go for 65 AH. I called up VW to find if that is fine but VW rep asked me to go ahead with 60AH and Exide only not any other brand. I asked him if I could buy it from VW(due to my urgency to travel hometown) for which he said that they had done the Auyudha pooja and can only make the sale to me on Saturday (as Friday is holiday for Auyutha pooja)

• Battery dealer reached out to Exide company and procured one 60AH battery at the cost of 7K after taking the old battery. I had no mind to negotiate with him but I wanted to confirm that my car would start with a new battery. I asked him to jump start the car and we were successful. Hence the replacement was done and car started fine by 8 pm and I decided to travel early morning the next day in fear of the hectic night traffic on highways.

• On Highways the 29th Morning:- the car behaved like a beast with surplus power at its wheels , sudden surge kicking in once again in my car after 1+ year but this time it was much more aggressive and it brought back the grin on face again. Overtaking has become a breeze once again and I no more need to do calculated overtaking. Engine no more feels strained and car pulls effortlessly.

Cost incurred is as below:
Remap – 14,250
Air filter – 450
Total - 14,700

Note: Petes dealer in Bangalore told me that he would charge me a remapping cost of 16,250 for vento plus travel cost of 4K.

While I am extremely happy about the remap by Petes dealer at my doorstep, following are something that I wanted to share with you and get your opinions.

• At 1X position the wiper takes more time to do a wiping than the stock timing– can this be corrected.

• After reading El lobo 6061’s post on his 5th Service update, I understand that battery needs to be charged as the ECU remap process could drain the battery whereas in my case it was not done – I guess since the remap is done at my residence, charging the battery was skipped. Is that the reason why the battery could have gone dead in my case - What’s your thought guys? (Note: The battery showed no signs of draining at all so far and it had worked fine in situations where I started even after being idle for 15days when I went overseas)

• Rahul suggested that the air filter alone needs to be replaced once in 6 months and I can stick on with my regular service intervals. Any suggestions from you guys for me that I need to be mindful of take care of as “after remap” care.

I got in touch with petes Bangalore thru facebook for a stage-1 remap on my Laura TSI & I was quoted a whopping 54,000. It's shocking to see people getting it done for as little as 14,000.
Agreed they are from a segment below but still the cost difference is almost 4X.
Any thoughts?

Pete's get Custom Code UK Remap for 1.8 TSI. They are one of the reputed tuners in Europe for VAG cars. Yes, 54k looks very expensive. I suggest you to check with other famous VAG tuners in Bangalore like APR, E tuners Motorsports etc.

54K?

Thats outrageous, I have had people mapping theres for less than 30 by Pete's.

I suggest you contact Revo or APR at that price. You can also get in touch with Code6.

Jetta diesel. It was a stage 1 remap (180bhp/400Nm claimed). Went there all of a sudden one night to check the compatibility, gave the car next day morning and got it the same day.

Yes, their price for diesel VAG cars are much lesser. For 1.8 TSI, 2.0 TSI the maps are from Custom Code UK. Petes do charge more for them.
