4.4 sdv8 remap?

Hi, just wondering has any owners of the 4.4sdv8 ever had a remap done, tempted to get this done on mine as I've always had my cars remapped but just looking to know any real world experiences. Thanks in advance.

This might be a stupid question - but why? Surely it's quick enough at 6.5 secs to 60? L405 Vogue SE 4.4 V8 DIESEL ~ #16

I am thinking about a DTUK Pedal Box controller. It just sharpens up the throttle response and it very simple to fit, had one on a 535d and it was quite good.

Throttle controllers seem a bit pointless - the only thing they actually do is mean you have to move your foot a little bit less for the same amount of progress, and you lose precision because more of the pedal travel is just pegged at maximum.

I think you need to try one and decide for yourself , but in my last experience they do really make the car feel much more responsive and seem to reduce the lag. On a 535d I had the pedal box was a well worth addition,

I think I'm going to order one this week and see how it works with the RR

It is literally just a box increasing the rate of change of a voltage signal to the ECU (the accelerator is a potentiometer) - does not and cannot do anything but reduce the amount you need to flex your right foot.

So you could get the same effect by wearing shoes with a thicker sole. Laughing 2014 SDV8 L405 Autobiography. Luxor with ivory. 22's...

Australia 2012 Range Rover Vogue TDV8 Alaska White

I had my 2012 (L322) 4.4SDV8 remapped in Australia; It gained around 46kw and 150nm of torque. I've had it for 6 six years and its done 115000kms' Its been fantastic. I added twin 3 inch mandrel bent exhaust at the time so it sounds sensational under load, but quiet as when cruising. I had the 8 speed auto fluid changed last week as preventative maintenance (I tow a 3.5tonne off road caravan) and it was in good condition (fluid).
