And that's an indicated 120 mph, so in reality it's less.
 
I suppose the exact maximum speed will depend on what size tyres you have fitted.  Since I fitted a K&N filter, my van hits the limiter constantly at an indicated 203 km/h (126 mph).

The limiter is 118mph (and yeah, that's about 125indicated in my T5).

...and so the question remains...
Should i get a remap in the new year?
I am now at a grand 125,000 miles and certainly have no warranty and apart from my headlight leveller and a strange whirring noise from some kind of fan, i dont seem to have any issues (cross fingers). I do need more economy though and might even consider sacraficing performance for (much) more.
Incidently, it would be a proper one at somewhere like Celtic.

I would ask the guy at celtic what he thinks . i was the worlds most sceptical untill I had my van done at celtic . the results are certainly impressive . I had an economy map done as i didn't feel the need for any more power . It still gave my van 196 HP and a shed load more torque . i mainly notice the fuel is better on a long run , local running hasn;t changed a lot maybe 1 or 2 mpg better .
my bigest fear is that when I die the missus will sell my toys for what I said I paid for them

I believe it involves removing the ECU and "bench flashing" it due to anti mapping measures which are in place

last week mine had a software update done at VW. drives like it's been remapped in comparison..smoother, faster,quieter....all in all mental for a new van. It was the fix for regen light keep coming on / van  trying to regen but failing, lumpy idle, shit performance, fuel guzzling.

It sounds quite pleasing, and about right IMO

Mine is pushing 145 from their old 150 map. Now as ES says, their new map is 160+. Let the good times roll.

Anyone had a Forge Tuning remap?  or Revo?
 
Forge's is an OBDII tuning job and according to their web site has been supplied to some VW/Audi dealerships.  I'm curious as some overseas agents that handle Forge products also handle Revo - wondering if they are the same (?).

I just got quoted AUD1200 for a Revo tune.
 
UK price is GBP299 (AUD481)
 
There is a local expression we use down under - this is just taking the p!ss !!!  Censored
 
I'm going to make do with physical upgrades and will leave the electronics alone - unless I can get a Revo from the UK. Evil Smile

Yep, thats the direction I would be taking if faced with your dilemma
 
The tuned map comes in a plug in tool (that doubles up as a basic code reader), you simply connect it to your van, download the standard map (in case you need to put it back to standard for any reason) and upload the tuned map - simples
 
I believe Celtics version is called the "Emotion" but there are others along the same lines like Superchips who have their "Bluefin" version
 
It sounds to me like there is potential profit to be had here......Wink

Isn't there someone with a bluefin for sale on here or the other forum, I think he was asking for £150 but would take offers.

I have looked at BlueFin and that was one of my options.

I cannot remember reading if they have revised their code so that a rewrite does not increment the ECU log?  I'm also not sure how you go about "re-registering" someone else's BlueFin...

I'll make some more telephone calls once I'm back on R&R.
 
I certainly won't be buying local. Angry

i have been debating getting a remap and spoke to someone  at pedal performance after a recommendation on this site, The figures quoted by some of these other firms are total rubbish ,buy a slow van spend £200 odd and you have a speed machine ,I dont think so, VW would be doing it if it was that good
