Jason, be honest to the bloke if you are planning to use his car as a guinea pig or do you have a potential rental on the motor for the week :lol: .

Mate there is no malice meant in what I said but you can't except someone to go without their car for a week while you map it.

Hi,

Do you have a remap for a 118d (f20)? And if so what do you think I can get it up to?

And have any remaps been detected?

Thanks,

Striker you always post on my threads with malice meant that just you

As for tuning the new cars there not tuned in a day and it's far from it
As for using cars for guinea pigs how do you think the newest cars in the world get tuned
Or modified
We have a endless list of new cars to use for R&D work like this one we did

It's not just a case on tuning the car other logs need to be turned off or when you put your key in the nice blue key reader it will flag up more boost than standard, speed limiter exceeded ect
We have stopped sharing info with other tuners out side our group along time ago as we found out 1 of them was selling the info to the rest
(Let see how many ecu's you lot will kill now)
To all the under ground tuning sites that read this and post and ask why don't we share
Why should we,do your own R&D

We make our Remaps in house for the car we are tuning
We have see an extra 40-50 ft of torque from these 118d f20

So far non have been found but it is so easy to tell just by driving the car into the work shop that it's been remapped

Maybe I do Jason and maybe it is because I still hold you responsible for my turbo going bang.I Know I should have walked away when you had to remove my ECU and bench flash it, on a 2004 model. When I booked an appointment with another tuner on this forum, the files that where read from your map were not good. You just boosted the backside out of my turbo. Remember me driving up to you after I was complaining of turbo whine and not being overly happy with the map. You told me 2 days to change the turbo and that you didn't have time to plug my car in to the diagnostics.
By the way, I changed the turbo myself in under 4 hours !!

I want post anymore comments on threads that you start, and still to this day I won't recommend you either.

I must I add I had an incredibly bad experience with ChippedUK (that was Jason as well). Not sure if they are still trading but BW run by the same 'Jason'.

For my sins at the time I bought a Mazda 6 MPS. I took it Chipped UK when Paramount in Slough couldn't map it. Jason claimed he could and aftry allegedly doing it showed me a graph with a 70bhp increase. On the drive home car felt no different. Started to get a few issues with thr car and after numerous trips to Chipped UK and Paramount the car was rr'd again at Paramount. No increase in power. I tried to get my money back but no luck. It would seem both companies went under and I was left feeling ripped off.

I would not recommend Jason either. If you search there are plenty of upset customers with bad experiences....

Sorry Jason but just being honest.

I have to laugh at people who decide to ignore all the R&D and resources of BMW (or whichever other manufacturer) and let some bloke (no matter how experienced and intelligent) tinker with their car's 'brain'. It may well work out just fine, but they shouldn't be too surprised if it goes pear shaped.

I know you can tune more power into a car and for some 'mainstream' cars there is a great deal of knowledge out there. If that 'floats your boat' it's up to you. However, anyone who embarks on this journey should do so with their eyes open.

Sorry Jason but just being honest.
And so you should as well as telling the world what he's done

But before you go and try to ruin my 28 years reputation
This is what everyone needed a to know

We are 2 different Jason's
I'm jason balbier from BW chiptune / BW autorepairs the bmw technician

The jason your talking about is Jayson Corcoran from chipped uk who opened and ran Viezu in bromsgrove then changed his name to Jason heitmann his current name, he's dropped the Y out of his previous name Jayson Corcoran as it was a dead give away it was him and his old username on other forums was trubador
His new company's names are Heitmann technology and Zeus (Zeusflash.com)

Jayson Corcoran rang me back about 8-9 years ago to ask me if I could look at a bmw that had problems which I did as the customer was in London and needed a air mass meter to fix it
The then asked I could flash cars for him if he sent customers to me in London which he sent me his flash tool which was locked to him as he said my flashing equipment would read different size flies to what he uses
He then associated me with him which gave him a better reputation as I'm well knob for bmw cars in London

We then did a 2 big shows a week after rack other where we tuned cars on the day and he offered to come and help out
We tuned around 14-15 cars on the day and he did 8-10 cars with his equipment
A week or 2 went by then started to get call a few calls from customers cars from the show
When I look on my data base there was there cars with that reg
Got the cars in and found it was cars jayson Corcoran had done
I could read the cars as my German tools at the time would not read files from the cars if no read was wrote on the file
So I took the tool he sent me a flew out to the tool maker and paid them to turn it into a master and unlock it so I could read no read files
To my horror I found that the cars jayson Corcoran tuned had a vey very basic way of being tuned or had the standard file with no read being the only thing that had been modified in the mapping data of the ecu
We then call all the customers cars that jayson Corcoran had tune there cars
all had the same thing apart from 4 which where very good?(may he had brought a good file for these or already had them )
I then retuned the other cars our way

I then rang jayson Corcoran and told him what I did and court him out as a Fraurdster
He then started speaking fluent bullshit
(How do you know when jayson Corcoran who Is now jason Heitmann talks BS answer his lips move)

He offered to give me his old tuning system as he had just brought in a different new system which I took which was the worst thing he could of done as it's allowed me to unpack his dealer files he sent to them

I call all the customers that jayson Corcoran had sent me that had very basic or no tune on there cars to retune them my way for free and told them all what he did
Most of them tried to get there money back non of them got any think back and all where threatened with his solicitor if they posted

I've been around the world tuning and bumped in to unhappy dealers and customers cars of him and show them what did on there cars

I was the person to prove that jayson Corcoran chipped uk who now is jason Heitmann Viezu / Zeus (Zeusflash.com)
is a Fraurdster and this is well know to other tuners in the uk and on all tuning forums

main thing is Jayson Corcoran can change names as much as he likes, he's still the same person with the same history that ripped of so many people in the tuning world as well as customers cars which he said he tuned and people should know about him

I've have had other new so called tuners who paid Jayson Corcoran £3500 on a viezu training corse to teach them how to tune cars
with there customers cars on my dyno as there customers where unhappy with the tuning they did and the new tuner could
Not make more than 20bhp from a 120d 177bhp car
They ended up asking me to tune the cars to 220-225bhp so they could keep there customers happy

The latest think he is says is that Viezu has been taking from him on piston heads more BS
http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topi ... 2597&mid=0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I am sick to death of people mistaking me with him

40% on my work is fixing other tuners work where there customers have hit a dead end



Just search for Viezu on this forum to see more

I hope the other tuners on here have the bottle to post what they know about him

Striker

My last post was to the person with the Mazda 6 who got me mistaken for chipped uk as we have the same 1st names


As for your post
As far as I can remember your car was a 120d 2004
If I removed the ecu then I would of been 2008-2009 as our German tool for tuning the car over obd would of read the full ecu and taken 1hour to read and 1 hour write

So removing it and reading it was a lot quicker (20 mins)
Modern tools from 2012 would read in 25mins over obd but only the mapping parts of the ecu

You must of spoke to me in 2012 about a new turbo
If I told you it was 2 days it was as I needed the car for 2 days
1st day to strip and order the turbo from bmw for the next day to put it on and we would of charged you 3-4 hours labour to do this plus oil service and new breather as it's got the old type that blocks up

If your turbo had gone bang your bearing would of gone the exhaust and intake system would need cleaning and we would need it for longer

There's may reasons why turbos fail on these early cars even standard car turbos where wearing out at 50,000-60,000 miles

The remap was on your car for 2 years and your car was 8 years old in 2012 when the turbo went

Wil did tell me on the phone that you wanted to be malice about me on this forum

For what it's worth...

I've used Jason BW (not the other one) several times over the last few years. I have a 2004 120d which Jason remapped back in late 2011. So, I have had been running with the map for almost three years. I'd estimate having done 45K miles with the map. As far as I am aware, my car still has its original - almost 10 year old - turbo (I bought it from a dealer when it was 3 years old).

Personally, I haven't had any significant issues with the car. Sure, there have been a couple of issues, like needing to replace the air mass meter and my EGR got a bit gunked up recently, but the car is 10 years old so I kinda expect to have to spend a little bit of money on it (and it HAS been very little money in my opinion). In my case, there's no way of saying "ah, yes, this problem was caused by the remap!". My point is that, my personal experience has been positive, and given the age of the car I have had very few problems with it.

I don't know what the history is between people on this thread, but in one case it seems like it might be a case of mistaken identity.


I don't imagine Striker and Jason are about to kiss and make up, but maybe some of the other people reading this thread might be encouraged by some positive feedback.

Cheers,

Nik

Right, I read this post and to striker-your car is old now accept that the turbo blew.

Jason carried out work on my 2008 120D after I had taken it to Viezu as I was using stupid amounts of diesel and didn't really notice much of a difference. Jason is a very honest and helpful guy who answered any questions I had for him, invited me to stay the day while he worked on my car showed me all the graphs of the viezu map then put the car back to standard then dynode the car again, then tuned it to his spec and dynode it again, and after all that said he would not charge me a penny unless I was completely satisfied with the results. Viezu even afterwards challenged that they could safely get more power than Jason and that his map did not make that much power-they also threatened legal action which was a joke as all I was doing was speaking my mind( please see link below). When I told Jason what Viezu had said he asked me back and re tuned my car free of charge and brought the power up again but also reduced fuel consumption.

My experience with Jason and BW Chiptune was first class and I would recommend them to anyone considering tuning a BMW.
