Nissan Navara D40 Remapped vs a Plug in Chip
Crash" performed the DPS remap on my auto D40 Navara, as I was not happy with the plug in chip that I purchased from another supplier. The fuel economy has improved by around 2 litres per 100 km, also the power feels to have increased. The thing I like the most is that the engine does not feel or sound like it is under load or duress all the time as previously with the plug in chip. The power delivery also feels to be a lot smoother as well.
The customer service was also excellent.
I would not hesitate to recommend DPS to anyone looking to have their vehicle's ECU remapped.

Yes. We now have better low down torque and it doesn't die on the big hills. On our regular routes we were dropping down to 3rd low on the bigger hills, now we only drop down to 1st high. Not only that we find it easier to drive, there's no argument it's a better truck.
I take it you are now saving on Diesel too?
Yes we are saving now 10-15% on fuel.
Were you happy with the service of DPS?
Good, very happy.

What power gains did you notice?
"I was using our John Deere™ 7530 with an 11-row maize planter. But our existing re-mapped John Deere™ 6920, out-performed our standard 7530 in the field with greater speed, power and fuel efficiency. I was so impressed with the improvements that I had our 7530 re-mapped too!"
After your remap what sort of economy improvements did you notice?
"We have achieved tremendous fuel savings after re-mapping our various contracting machinery. For example, our forage harvester is now using five litres less fuel per hectare. That's a massive 12% improvement which should save us over $5'600............. per year – all with increased performance, which allows us to get the job done faster."
Would you use DPS again?
"We're very impressed with the standard of workmanship and the professionalism shown by the DPS team. We recommend them highly and will use them for all our future re-mapping needs."

I remapped my 6930 because I needed more power for the work I do. I was looking at buying a 7930 but I didn't like the bigger frame tractor. The smaller frame of the 6930 was better for the hill work I do, it is more nimble.
For me, remapping is a very cost effective way of gaining more torque and power. After talking to a few guys who have had their tractors remapped, I then had no hesitation in mapping my tractor.
Now that it has been remapped I don't need to have the RPM at full noise. I have dropped my RPM by around 200 revs and been able to use a higher gear because of the torque. I have gone from using 37 litres per hour to 32 litres. That saves me around $70 to $80 a day in fuel costs, which adds up over the course of a year.
I am now working around 2.6 hectares an hour – which is an increase of around 30% productivity.
I expect to recoup my entire investment in just couple of months.
We used to hire an extra tractor to get all our work done on time. But this isn't necessary now as we have increased our ground speed significantly with my "transformed" tractor. And best of all, the cost of re-mapping it was only a fraction of the cost of upgrading it.
The whole remapping process was completed by DPS in an extremely professional way, with a high level of service. Each question was answered thoroughly, and their service was backed up with good product knowledge. It gave me full confidence in the work that DPS do. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any other person interested in remapping.
What is remapping?
ECUs aremanufactured conservatively to account for different factors such as climate, fuel quality and emission standards. ECU remapping will optimise your vehicle's performance.
DPS's research and development team, based in Waikato, not only develop its own software for New Zealand vehicles, it also has strong connections with Australia and Europe. This strengthens DPS's experience and knowledge in ECU remapping.
Gains can be increased from 20 – 35 per cent BHP (brake horsepower), depending on your vehicle. A tractor alone may gain an additional 60 HP increase – more so on other vehicles, e.g harvesters.
DPS's passion and speciality is remapping ECUs in agricultural and commercial vehicles. However, their depth and support easily lends itself to catering for all your
remapping needs, including commercial vehicles, trucks, buses and private cars.
DPS is committed to providing both an excellent product and outstanding customer service.
Gus Thompson, Isuzu Gigga Remapped
Mark from Diesel performance Solutions approached me and answered all my questions about remapping and with the expected gains in power (60 hrs/pwr) combined with relatively low cost involved seemed to be a good choice.
Mark and the DPS team mapped my truck then and there. The level of service and professionalism was excellent. I was then left to try out my mapped truck.
Fully loaded, my truck now pulls out of the quarry with better low down torque. It has far better pulling power throughout the rev range, it is an outright better truck. I have not kept a close eye on fuel usage, but I do not believe I am using more fuel, it just seems to be performing so much more efficiently.
I would not hesitate recommending them to anyone.
