VW GOLF VII 2014 GTI – Case Study

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 by andy

Market leading development is one of our core business principles here at Viezu Technologies. The car pictured above is the Volkswagen Golf GTI 2014, with 230hp stock flywheel BHP. This car is currently in development for ECU tuning or engine remapping to be carried out. But this would leave our customer base without a performance upgrade option until the ECU tuning is developed.

We are proud to announce the release of our brand new V-BOX application for the VW GOLF MK7 GTI. Below you will be able to read through the highlights of the fine tuning of the unit on our in house Mustang AMD-500 AWD 3000hp dyno.

Base lining the vehicle is always the first step in any product development. This is where our dyno facilities allow us to stand head and shoulders above the rest. Being able to monitor the vehicle operating parameters, EGT’s, IAT’s, AFR’s, knock sensors etc etc etc … oh and of course checking the car with the tried and tested det-cans to add a human element into the data logging to monitor any adverse ignition events in the engine.

The car, as expected, ran very good power in stock form, producing just over 200hp at the wheels. The newest ranges of VW’s are running much lower drive train losses than their predecessors as the manufacturers strive to produce ever more fuel efficient cars.

After the original runs the new VBOX was fitted to the vehicle and the calibration fine tuning was carried out.

Above you can see 1 of the two sensors fitted to the vehicle – here to the master MAP sensor

Above you can see our technician James fitting the unit to the salve MAP sensor

Installation took approximately 5 minutes and required nothing more than some clear day light to see your connectors and couple of zip ties to install the excess cable next to the stock loom.

Following the installation we ran through a number of test procedures on the vehicle and began to trim the unit up to the maximum safe level for the car. It is always vitally important to point out that when tuning a vehicle, either via a Viezu Remap or a VBOX, that the vehicle is tuned safely and responsibly. Too often we see crazy figures quoted and crazy modifications to cars only to see them suffer mechanical failures or issues with longevity. We DO NOT do that. Our tuning is about smooth progressive power delivery that is kind on components and the drive train and also offers manufacturer levels of reliability and component longevity.

After several runs trimming the software to obtain the ideal fuelling and overall performance we were looking for. We settled with a superb and consistent level of tune offering up to 35hp at the wheels and  up to 35ft lbs of torque (50nm for those calculating in metric).

Below you can see the final runs from the test vehicle. The car had less than 3000 miles on the clock and is still bedding in as it’s a little tight and restrictive still, but it went VERY well with the VBOX installed.

The latest V-Boxes allow you to tune more.

Viezu are proud to announce a solution to the latest vehicles including the F Series BMW.  These boxes have been developed to offer both performance and economy for most vehicles.

The New V boxes also cover Volkswagen Golf MK7 and Lexus IS, allowing you to offer the very best for your customers with some very impressive performance gains.

RANGE ROVER 5.0 SC 2014

Thursday, April 24th, 2014 by andy

The Range Rover has long been seen as the pinnacle of 4×4 excellence, both in off-road capability and luxury. However, the brand new Range Rover has raised the bar even higher.  Viezu Technologies has stepped in to raise this bar even further. Being the first tuning company in Europe to build and develop a brand new custom ecu remap or software calibration on this vehicle!

As with all development work, before we tune the software we have to collect data and benchmark the vehicle in order to understand what the vehicle is doing in standard trim.

With the car strapped to the dyno we collect the stock data from the vehicles ECU along with benchmarked data such as the horsepower and torque out of the vehicle at the wheels.

With the data collected from the Mustang MD 500-AWD, we were able to analyse the ecu software against the physical power and torque output of the engine to identify the key areas of improvement.

With all large capacity v8 the gains are always going to be smooth and progressive. This is important as it maintains the characteristics of the vehicle that the manufacturer originally designed and marketed the vehicle to have.

However, the torque output of the vehicle is very strong from very low down in the rpm band an pulls hard through the midrange and finally up to the max rpm. But, the torque output in stock ecu calibration is very flat and linear. It is smooth, of this there is no question, but the vehicle sometimes felt a little ordinary for our liking.

The new Viezu Remapped ECU calibration, tuned the torque of deliver a stronger mountain like wall of torque in the midrange, transforming this Range Rover Sport into a supercharged animal.

The new Viezu tune develops up to 40 additional bhp and 50 ftlbs of torque increase (or 67 NM of torque for those on the metric system).

The delivery is smooth and progressive still, but the Viezu remap transforms the way the vehicle drives and accelerates in such a way that the car feels like it is constantly pulling stronger through the rpm band, instead of one constant seemingly flat acceleration curve in stock form.

This remap is a must for anyone who owns one of the new production Range Rovers. Remember though, this is the same engine in the brand new Jaguar’s, including the F-Type 5.0sc. The same is available to all of you who drive these vehicles also gains of up to 40hp can be achieved on these vehicles.  The example below was of a customer who wanted approximately 30hp gain maximum, but all of the torque he could achieve.

The Viezu tuning software remaps the Audis RS6 tuning the engine to a real and genuine 490 + bhp  (depending upon the original performance)

Viezu is constantly developing and improving its ECU tuning services. All development work is carried out in Viezu’s state of the art environmentally controlled Dyno cell, which houses Viezu’s 3000bhp rolling road and emission testing system.
