HELLO,,Hi all i was wondering if there is anything to gain from doing a ECU Remap on the B.T? Is there any power gain etc.?
Thank you in advance
The turbos are well done with 1 barbut the wastegate have a 1 bar secure spring so it doesnt matter if the car is mappet to blow 1.4 you will only get 1 bar,, i remember that when i was looking over Mr.X shoulder ,, that he had programmed 1.2 bar in to my ECU
nope, the original are 300ccthe injectors will be close to max flow as they are 360 cc
theres no one in uk who can do any mapping on a bt....chips have to be changed....sweden, germany,switzerland are places were you can get it done..... Cost anything from 1500 upwards depending how far you want to go THERES NO QUICK OR EASY WAY JUST ONE WAYthank you all for your answers you have been most helpful. I don't want to do any large updates. Just intesrested inas the car is now. Wondered if you could tweak it a little to increase the bhp etc

wasnt aware i was building any reputation fart but thanks for guidancecherrsagaiI was actually trying to defend you, I dont think your comments are really building a good reputation for you here and therefore I thought I might try to guide you somewhat. So I guess it makes us boyfriends then? Common man.. this is stupid. Nobody here thinks your comments are cool.
"banana dik-man" can stand up for him self, does not need me to defend him :cheers:
How to do is the problem. If it was easy everyone could do it. Like Rojer says not many are there who do it.remapping is easy if you know how to do it.
There are 1.000.000+++ TDI's and less than 500 BTs left. Your friend rather spends his money and time in remapping these new ECU's than technologie from the 90's. I can not blame him.This friend of mine is even remapping new-school tdi's for raceteams that really don't know how to do it themselves.
This would more suite if you have a 535i. How will you control the idle with the KMS? It can not communicate with the EML and installing an idle valve is a joke. I got a KMS on my M20B25 and idle regulation isn't there.That ecu fits more to people who only go flat out, Mr John M. needs to apply such regulations if he want to sell his system to people with cars like an Alpina. Allthough I wouldn't install a KMS in an Alpina I am happy with the features for a race car, nothing wrong with that. And there is nothing wrong with the stock ECU. It handles all the features the car needs.I agree with mister banana here. A BT is an old car with old technology, remapping is therfor maybe not the optimal solution, change it with a KMS, bigger and more modern injectors (the originals are just too small), a new handcrafted outlet manifold and a set of more modern turbo chargers: it will make this car much better, faster and more reliable!
There are enough people who already boosted there car 0,1-0,2 bar up to gain torque and power. At least 3 of them I know. It's the owners choice to do, it is his car. So it aint completely crap.But then again, 99% of the Alpina enthusiasts will keep their BT's original (including myself) so this whole discussion is crap.
