JEC Oxfordshire Had A Brilliant Visit To Performance Tuners VIEZU on 5th December 2019

On another dark, cold and wet night, 8 Region members and friends traveled up to Bidford on Avon for an excellent evening with VIEZU. After some free visual health checks, members received a comprehensive introduction to VIEZU and the mix of science and art that is re-mapping. Better still, especially for Stephen Haynes who could not himself even be there but still won, the Region and VIEZU raised £200 for the palliative care charity Sobell House, itself in Oxfordshire, for the chance of an otherwise free re-mapping !

When the meeting was over many decamped to a local hostelry for (another) convivial meal.

We are highly likely to return to VIEZU for a 'dyno day', in better weather, later in the year.

Remapping your car can clearly be good for your car, your enjoyment of it AND your wallet !!

Car technology has clearly come a long way. It is no longer about (or just about) hand tools and gas flowed heads. It is certainly not about fiddling with computer chips, so it isn't 'chipping' any more. It's about reprogramming your car's ECU.

VIEZU Technology Limited have won a Queen's Award for Innovation for their re-mapping services. With 'reassuringly powerful' and 'In Pursuit if Perfection' as tag lines, VIEZU are clearly leaders in this field.

VIEZU, as a name, itself reflects that ethos, coming from a Far Eastern dialect. Others suggest it reflects the name of an Italian river - a country from which some of VIEZU's kit happens to come.

VIEZU explained that masunfacturer's engine performance claims are typically 'at the crankshaft andf not at the road - where the numbers are inevitably and always much less.

With a network of licensed agents, customers can get remaps locally via an online service. An XF, for example would take about 11/2 hours, delivering a gain of some 25 BHP on a 163 base, +40 Nm, 10% fuel saving and +7- torque nm on a 400 nm base. So clearly, well worthwhile !

Membes learned that the process is about releasing the inherent capabiliities of an engine that, mapped differently, is often to be found in many other models in a range. It is not a case, again for an example, if simply turning that XF into an XFR or XFRS. The process is instead rooted in the particular attributes sought by the customer. and it can blend performance improvement with economy improvement - they are NOT mutually exclusive. Certainly, VIEZU won't remap a car that is itself unsafe e.g. if has issues with its tyres, brakes, bearings, bushes etc. etc.

A fascinating evening that showed us that a remap is well worth considering.
