Simon has always been happy with his well used Wrangler, but didn’t think much of the chip he had bought for it. After writing a few custom tunefiles to suit the mods he has we came up with one which we knew he’d be happy with.

Early indications using our OBD2 rolling road sim software which has been surprisingly accurate in the past has seen power go from 108kW at the wheels to 139kW and 347Nm to 386Nm he has also picked up a 10% increase in fuel economy. The lag and throttle response has also seen a dramatic improvement.

Its a no brainer when comparing to chips and modules which were throwing annoying check engine lights whilst yielding no power gains at all yet cost the same or more than the $995.00 for our OBD remap.

One Response to Jeep JK Wrangler 2.8 CRD ECU Remapping Results
  1. I was never with happy the results from the raising the pressure in the fuel rail, from using a diesel performance chip. The results just weren’t as good as I hoped, and I wouldn’t recommend a mate get one. My research eventually leading to getting my ECU re-mapped with ECU West. On the drive home I reset my fuel usage and it was over a 1.5lt/100k’s better than usual. In the ‘rolling road tests’ it was a noticeable gain after the re-map, compared to a DP chip where you’d wonder if it’s been connected right. It now pulls with less hesitation and hopefully the annoying stalling will be a thing of the past.
    So far so good, I’ll post again after some more k’s and after I tow.
