Peugeot 206 GTI Performance Remap Shrewsbury


This customer came to our remap Shrewsbury Car Care Centre to enquire about having their car remapped. But because his car was not turbo-charged or super-charged, he was a little dubious that the gains would not be worth it. Below we explain why a remap is the best money you can spend on a naturally aspirated car.

As with all manufacturers, because the standard settings are made to cope with the worst of all situations, the performance of the engine is de-tuned. By making slight modifications to the engine mapping, gains can be made over the standard characteristics.

An Ace Remap in Shrewbury will  give the engine much improved throttle response and better lower down torque, this in turn gives better driveability. These gains although only slight on paper, can be felt and appreciated when driving, which is obviously what we are trying to achieve.

If the vehicle has other modifications as well, we can take even more advantage of these when we write the Ace Remap Shrewsbury, for example, by putting a sports exhaust on a vehicle, it will not necessarily give increased performance. It may  sound better and look more sexy, but due to alterations in the exhaust pressures, the engine may well not perform as well as the standard one.

By remapping the engine to suit the exhaust, an even bigger advantage can be made of both products. This exponential effect can be had on induction kits as well.

We are confident that an Ace Remaps Shrewsbury is the best value for money, £pound per extra bhp to get reasonable performance gains from a normally aspirated engine.

You would need a quality induction and exhaust upgrade, or serious mods like camshafts etc, to get similar increases. These sort of mods are likely cost considerably more than our remapping, and in some instances could compromise the drivability of the car.

Getting gains from a normally aspirated (fuel injected) engine can be challenging, with it having no forced air induction, but an Ace Remap will certainly be one of the best value for money optioned compared to almost every other product. And with our 14 day no quibble money back guarantee , our customers have absolutely nothing to lose by trying it.

After a few little tweeks with this 206 GTi, this customer was so pleased with the result, he called back in to our Car Care Centre from 20 miles away to tell us. And to top it all, the little Pug had just flown through the MOT on emissions, which were the lowest the MOT tester had seen on 1 of these cars ever!  🙂

VW Golf 1.9 TDi Remap Shrewsbury


Golf 1.9 TDi Remap From Ace Remaps

This customer visited our Ace Remaps Shropshire Remapping centre in  Shrewsbury  wondering whether to get Golf 1.9 TDi Remap for his pride and joy.

To begin with he was very skeptical of whether it would be worth it, but after we had explained the gains in Horse Power & Torque, as well as Fuel Gains he could achieve, and the improved throttle response, he found it hard to believe. But that’s where out 100% no quibble money back guarantee came in, so he’d haveno risk with a Golf 1.9TDi remap from Ace Remaps.

Here at Ace Remaps remapping in Shrewsbury, we try to make your visit here as easy as possible for, and tailor our service around you, the customer.

We not only remap turbo engines like this VW Golf 1.9 TDi remap,  but also do a wide range of naturally aspirated engines, which experience has shown our remaps have made a big difference even with a small engine.

As if he needed any more convincing, we showed him some feedback we received from a customer who had also had a Golf 1.9 TDi remap:


 “Hello mate, yeah very happy with the car pal, it’s amazing, I’m that impressed I had a look if the new Golf has the same engine 🙂 I wasn’t really into cars before as I have a big bike, but you and the team have made me think otherwise, thank you again mate, it’s nice to know there’s people you can trust with your car, cheers”

Remapping Your Motorhome


A Ace Remaps Remap For Your Motorhome?

Ok, so you’re all packed up and ready to set off in your motorhome. You’ve cancelled the milk & the papers, you’ve set the sat nav up, and you’ve triple checked that there’s enough gas to fry the bacon in the morning.

You’ve probably done all of these things and a hundred others before you set off on your road trip in your motorhome, but probably the last thing you’ve thought about or done is to get it remapped.


Isn’t remapping For Sports Cars?

The simple answer to that question is NO! Whilst it will make sports cars even more sporty, a remap is far more than just about making things go faster. With Ace Remaps remapping, we fine tune the settings inside the Engine Management system to make the engine work more efficiently, and effectively.

We take out the ‘de-tuning’ that the manufacturers have built in to comply with things like world wide emissions regulations, poor environmental conditions, future commercial opportunities, and much more (read our FAQs).


Why Remap A Motorhome?

Because a Ace Remaps remap will make the engine work more efficiently, this means that it will generate more torque (pulling power!). And because of this extra low down grunt, you can use this to change gear earlier, and not have to change down gears as much.

All of this means that if you use the extra torque sensibly, you can get a decent improvement in fuel economy, with lots of owners reporting 10%-15% better MPG after having their motorhome remapped by Ace Remaps. With the cost of fuel constantly rising, and most large motorhomes using quite a lot of fuel on a road trip, this soon mounts up to make a remap self funding.



What Else Does A Motorhome Remap Do?

As well as saving money on fuel, because of the fine tuning we do with the ECU (Engine Control Unit), we can alter the driving characteristics and make it better to drive. You will notice this with smoother acceleration, less turbo lag  (the momentary wait before you start going after pressing the accelerator pedal ) on TDi engines.

Also because of the extra power and torque that the more efficient engine produces, this makes overtaking far quicker and safer, and a lot more relaxing, with less gear changes.


Wont A Remap Damage The Engine In My Motorhome?

All Ace Remaps remapping comes with a written warranty to give you total peace of mind. In addition to this, you get a lifetime software warranty too, as well as a 14 day no quibble money back guarantee if you’re not completely convinced or satisfied with your more efficient and improved motorhome.

Audi Q3 2.0 TDi Remap Shrewsbury


Remap Shrewsbury Audi Q3 2.0 TDi

Here at Ace Remaps Remap Shrewsbury we remap a wide variety of different makes and models of vehicles. The objective of our process is to  optimise the settings of your cars engine management system (ECU), to ensure it is tuned to the best possible level .

The owner of this Audi Q3 2.0 Tdi had visited the Remap Shrewsbury website and completed the simple enquiry form to get a quote for his Audi diesel, then just waited a short while for his personalised quote to get emailed to him.

Once he had received the figures and statistics showing how much his car would improve, with up to 35% more Power & Torque & up to 15% better fuel economy, he was very impressed.

When he also learned his Audi Q3 2.0 TDI remap also comes with 1 YEARS mechanical warranty cover (see details), and a LIFETIME software warranty for peace of mind, he wanted to book his Audi in for a Ace Remaps remap right away!

He new that it would be a risk free purchase, because as well as the warranty he gets, there was also a 14 day money back guarantee if he wasn’t happy with his Audi Q3 2.0 TDi remap. This would give him the option to have his settings reverted back and a full no quibble refund.

But why would he want that when he’d get so much more from a Ace Remaps remap on his Audi?
