Default tuning box or remap

details
57 plate 407 sw 2.0 hdi 136hp my dads car
He needs 2 tyres ect 200 soon and the heating fan or something 1400 and a rear bumper and tow electrics ect sorted 200. He did look to buy another car but not much out there.
As his looking to spend this money his looking at increasing the power as he feels its under powered for towing his 1600kg loaded caravan.

Looked into a few thing
1 400 before and after rolling road with universal remap 35hp
2 450 custom remap to suit car up to 40hp
3 75 adjustable level tuning box up to 40hp

I tow with 1600kg 170 hp bmw but less torque and it pulls like a train

Now I not really interested in option 1 as the 50 extra for custom map is surely worth while. but at 375 more than a tuning box seems pretty step.

whats peoples experience please and do you think there suitable to use for Towing Thanks

Personally, and this is just me. I wouldn't dream of re mapping mine.
I saw the bill for the replacement of the dmf and clutch on my x-line. Luckily, that was a warranty job.
Also, 1400 on the heater?. Care to elaborate?. Could be dealer leg lifting.

Thanks for reply


The issue with heating is the passenger foot-well gets red hot in summer when air-con on and then in winter its freezing when heating's on. 800 replacement unit and 2 and a half days lab our.

I forgot its also got a drip of oil from diff that needs looking at and his having the sat nav help thing removed too. Whilst dash is out

Sounds like it could well be the heater flap problem.
You can DIY that (sure I've seen repairs with felt tip pens or something)
Or you can buy a reasonably cheap repair kit that includes new flaps. The biggest bum would be the dash out bit. But just think, a day or two of pratting in your drive and over 1k in your pocket

Plenty on here with heater fixed ( me included 100 roughly)
Remap should be 250 ( power increase and dpf off)
I had my 407 1.6hdi mapped from 110 to 146

lol yeah I read about, bodge job repairs and yeah 1000 would be nice but Im only just about aloud to be a passenger in it. My dads never liked me driving his cars lol. Did let me fix his fiesta once but it was snowing and he had actually broken down. Just the master fuse had blown.

Diesel particulate filter. Or, in Peugeot parlance - FAP. Filtre a particule.

I've the same motor but in a 307sw.

Personally I went down the remap and DPF removal at a cost of 350. Not the cheapest quote but the company had good feedback and was local enough to make sense.

Rather than go for full out power which would have been around 165-170bhp I opted for a mild eco tune so its now around 150-155bhp.
Plenty of poke but sensible economy and should be a little kinder on the clutch and DMF.
