Puma 2.2 Re-map question
Having ticked most of my initial jobs off the list for my new (to me) 110, I am now looking at options around a re-map (stage one). The aim is to smooth it out a bit and improve general drivability.

The two favoured options on here appear to be Empire and Alive. I am in Bristol so a long way from both and therefore would be using one of their local agents.

Would be grateful for any thoughts, or recommendations in this part of the world. Mine is a 2013 110.

Thanks!

You should go for Alives ATRIC, you can then do it remotely from home. Thumbs Up

Gary (the owner) would be able to talk you through it.

Have you considered Bell Auto Services ?
Pete Bell is a well established and recommended remap provider and has all the data on here to show how much you gain
It can be done remotely and he supplies a OB2 reader to link to your phone to read and clear faults
Pop onto. His site for more information

+1 for Bell Auto Services.

Pete's 150 map for my 2012 2.2 Puma made a massive difference to the way it drove.
I went for the remote DIY installation which was very easy to do and was money well spent.
At the time I think the insures ,LV, only wanted an extra Β£20 or so in increased annual premiums.

I ran the Defender for a couple of years with no problems whatsoever.

I also have no link with the company, just a happy customer.

Before going for a remap I would replace the intake ducting between the airbox ( contains air filter) and the wing side air intake. This pipework is highly restrictive and can be replaced with a much larger bore hose. This will allow the engine to breath much better and help with the MAP.

Photo courtesy of Yannis from page 10 in the link above which I have image edited.
I’m unsure what the yellow part is with the screw installed is, but the part I have surrounded in green is the part that is cut out, this is after the job has been done.
The black plastic in the blue area is what would be removed, the photo is from after the job was competed.**

I used Ian @ IRB Developments. He’s based in the Midlands but a good service and well worth the money.

Mine is a 2013 with the stage 1 and it’s transformed how it drives. Alex
