114i Remap Question

Post by baynton1991 » Sun Nov 10, 2013 4:18 pm

Hi Folks this is my first post not sure if its in the correct section, but here it goes.
I've tried finding this info out but no one has a definitive answer, why are the remaps being offered for the 114 not taking the power to at least close to 118 power, I've heard there's an exhaust piece that is different but is there anything else?
Is it possible to just put the 118 map on the 114i?
Any knowledge on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I highly doubt you'll get any decent gains from remapping a 114i.. There's not much point in remapping a naturally aspired engine because your only going to get about a 10-15bhp gain which you won't really notice

Isn't the 114i a 1.6 turbo?

http://mosselmanturbo.com/remapping-car ... f21-102hp/

That site is stating an increase from 102bhp to 121bhp. Not sure on how they program the vehicle but it looks to be a 'chip tune' or plug and play....

Also its a tad pricey at £725...

Thanks for the replys everyone. Spoke to someone from AC Schnitser and the only reason they cannot remap past 151bhp is bevause bmw will not allow them as they can only work in certain brackets. So hopefully when some other tuning companys start remaping they will be able to take it straigjt to 118 power

^^^^ theyre great figures and about a quarter of the price of others offering the same gains. Can you just put the 118i map on it, or is that not possible??

I just dont seem to understand why you would spend money mapping a 114

Sorry if you want more power then you probably bought the wrong car

But interesting too see what gains you end up with

Why not? It's the same engine as the 118i with the same turbo etc just a different manifold

Decent gains can be seen from any turbo car.

Same turbocharged engine, a section of the exhaust is slightly different though.

I'm not aware of anyone who's had theirs remapped yet. I believe Jason at BW Chiptune was looking into F series mapping via the OBDII port?

Hi Baynton,

I believe the 114, 116 and 118 turbo petrols are all the same engines with different bmw maps on them and any good tuner can remap to 220 bhp. I am getting my 116i done this week, I have a post out asking for members to share their stories after the map but no takers yet am still looking forward to it.

Cheers
Jeffers.
