IS220d Remapped (2 years)

Remapped my IS220D SE-L 2 years ago

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Thought I should join to share my IS220d experience.

I had issues blanking my EGR few years ago as it would throw up all sorts of errors. tried cleaning but only eliminated issues temporarily.  

I found a company willing to do a remap. He managed to delete DPF and EGR. I then blanked the EGR with a plate and got the DPF gutted by a professional welder (mechanic) within a week of map. 

The car was at 120k mileage when mapped. it is now at 162k pulling strong on all gears. the economy, torque and response was an still is really noticeable. I manage 38>mpg on minor boost and 31-36mpg having fun with it. These figures vary dependent on weather and road conditions hence the large variations. 

To summarise,

1. hydrocarbon engine flush. (I just did it for the sake of it) 

2. remap (delete EGR and DPF from ECU) 

3. Blank EGR (blanking plate from ebay)

4. DPF gutted then re-welded professionally (from my mechanic)

Hope this helps,

      Hi! I am experiencing something that is rather annoing! I start the car and select first to drive off! All normal! Then i select second and as the revs go up just after 1800rpm there is this rattle sound that i can feel in the steering wheel and vibration! When it gets over 2000rpm it stops and then changing to third is the same going after 1800 rpm when picking up speed the vibration comes back until it goes past 2000 rpm...
       
      In this time i can feel the car vibrating like it struggles around this rev... all normal when 4th is selected! 
       
      If i rev the engine when parked i dont get that! 
       
      I recently cleaned egr and maf and after using shell v-power for months i put a tank of bp to see how it feels! Car accelerates and drives fine but i get that judder/vibration at that rev cound when picking up speed! 
       
      It is something like a BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

      Hi all,
      As it’s been forecast for strong winds like an idiot I opened my bonnet to top up with washer fluid! A gust of wind managed to remove the front plastic engine covers along with clips.
      i know the clips are poor however are any people using alternative clips to hold down there engine covers? I know most people have some missing or all of them so wondering what are people are using.
      Have looked on eBay and ones I have seen look like the poor ones I have already.
       
      cheers in advance
