NZ New Fabia vRS Mk1 otteinger ECU
« on: October 20, 2019, 08:22:55 pm »
Hi,

A couple of weeks ago I bought a cheapish Fabia vRS for a project car and to teach my eldest lad to drive a manual.

The car had a few simply fixed issues and weíve been working through those.

The car is an 03 and NZ new all be it with UK spec Speedo and LCDís with quite a good spec 6 disc CD changer, boot pockets, Fabia rubber mat set and an Oettinger sticker on the ECU.

The folkís over at  Briskoda advise that this was not a dealer option in the UK market. So I was wondering if it was a dealer option here and if not where might the ECU have been reflashed in. NZ and if anyone has any idea what tune this might have given the car. It certainly pulls well enough.

Any advice greatfully received.

Thanks for the reply

That makes sense the car is ex giltrap... Based on the service book..

Also thanks for the offer.. Iím happy with the way it goes. I was just wondering what the re map had done over the stock vRS tune?

Is the any simple way to find out?

Cheers

John

without logging and actually comparing to stock or putting on a dyno? You would not truly know.
personally I would recommend logging as the most crucial component. As the Dyno does not provide a full picture.
Only AFR, boost and possible power.

you might also find that somewhere along the lines? the car might have been retuned or reverted as well.
Regardless that the sticker is on the ECU itself.

Even in stock form, the Fabia's are amazing little cars.

Thanks for that,

When you say log ( and cut me some slack here as Iím relatively new to the world of ecu tuning and remaps)
Do you mean data logging the cars performance via the OBD2 port?

This will give me power output numbers etc??

I agree the Fabia is a cool little car and goes really nicely.. Although I need to get on and refresh the brakes all round..

Indeed,

Data logging the ECU parameters via the OBD2 Diagnostic port utilizing VCDS (known as Ross-tech)
It will provide you with enough information to advise, Air fuel ratio, boost pressure actual vs requested, fuel pressure, what the injectors are doing etc.
With all that information you can calculate power of a vehicle yes...

Never be afraid to ask questions on the VASK forum, there are many of us. Happy to provide information and help where we can.
