"A much better driving experience with effortless torque and power and improved fuel economy! It doesn't get much better!"

HPF CRD-Flash tuning is THE state of the art way of improving both power and torque for your modern common rail diesel engine. By re-calibrating the factory engine computer unit (ECU) we are able to optimize the engine power and torque output as well as improve the vehicles fuel economy by as much as 10%. Reprogramming the vehicles ECU has a number of advantages not at least is that we can retain all of the manufacturers inbuilt safety features as we are not tricking or going behind the ECU’s back. Additionally, reprogramming the ECU gives us the unparalleled ability to alter torque management tables, throttle mapping, boost pressure, fuel pressure & injector timing to name just a few… something no individual chip or module can come close to claiming. Real world average gains of around 25% more power and 25% more torque with no degradation to reliability or drive-ability shows that with CRD-Flash tuning technology you really can have your cake and eat it too!

The process requires the vehicle to be at the Horse Power Factory for a period of one day, where our specialist tuners set the vehicle up on our All Wheel Dyno for a baseline dyno run. The vehicle is then connected to our state of the art ECU reading and writing hardware. Our tuner then continues by adjusting the ECU parameters, all the time monitoring the progress on the dyno screen and via our ECU logging devices and EGT sensors.

At HPF we custom tune every vehicle and each vehicle is returned to the customer along with a dyno graph showing the baseline dyno run and the final run, this graph will display the gains in both Power and Torque for comparison.

Additional Notes

  • We recommend all vehicles coming to HPF for tuning run 98 Octane fuel. Please contact us if you have a need to use different fuel.
  • Power figures listed are estimated kilowatts at the flywheel based on results typically obtained by HPF on HPF’s dynos. Typically these are based of a manual vehicle with standard driveline and standard wheels and tyres. Actual power can vary based on each specific vehicle.
  • Modifications such as this package require the vehicle to be in excellent mechanical order.
  • We advise against increasing the power output substantially on high kilometer engines, if your engine has in excessive of 150,000kms please contact us to discuss options.

    Hi Rob,

    Does anyone read the other questions before they ask the same thing over and over? I look forward to an upgrade in my v6 Rok for $1195!

    Hi I’d like to ask u a couple of questions
    I’m interested in doing a few mods to my car
    I have a 2013 model amarok 2.0 litter bioturbo

    I want to
    – remove and fit new dump pipe (or gut the existing DPF system)
    – remap the computer
    – remove the EGR
    -and after doing all that would I need to get a power chip shop ?

    Can you let me know what you can do out of the above and what the coast will be ?

    Can I get 200kw and 650nm from my V6 Amarok?
    What is the max power/torque you can tune this engine up to?

    Rob, you did a sdv8 Range Rover for me last year and was so impressed now looking to do Amarok v6. Do you have any output figures at stage 2 tune from any v6 rocks you have done? Want to go one level up from standard flash tune as the motor is obviously detuned to buggery for use in the rok.


  9. Any tunes yet for the VW Amarok TDI550 V6 TDI?

    I have a 2014 Touareg 150. Is it possible to go a little lower than the 216kw and 600Nm. I want reliability and longjevity as well as an increase in performance. Would be happy with 180kw and 500Nm!

    I have a 2012 Touareg TDi (180kw & 550Nm). It has done 65,000 km. Have you done any of these & do you have graphs available?

  12. Hi,
    My car is 2015 VW touareg 150 TDI, it has just reached 3000 kilometres now, I was wondering what the performance result will be after the tune?

    is it ok to do the tune in the new car or let it run for more and make the parts somooth, then do it?

    and also, will it influence my factory warranty?

    thank you in advance

      Hi Steven,

      I believe we can tune your Toureg 150 TDI but would like to see the car to confirm that as it is a 2015 model.

      There is no issue with tuning the car new and yes it may influence your warranty depending if any warrantable failure was contributed to the tune.

      Power increase would be 200KW and 600nm.

    I was wondering how the flash tune performs in the real world. I have seen the dyno graphs but what is the pick up like below 2500rpm when most time would be spent.

    Also, how have the Amarok’s held up in the long run with the tune?

      Hi Luke,

      What you will notice is better throttle response, improved torque when pulling from a stand still especially when towing, easier overtaking and improved acceleration even under light throttle applications. The power and torque is improved by at least 10% basically as soon as you touch the throttle. We have had no negative feedback from any of the Amarok’s we have tuned.
