It has been a very busy few months for Rapid Remapping. With tuning a 2018 Volvo FL240 Fire Engine
Not only having my 3rd child. But work as well.
Lets start with this one to kick off back blogging about a really amazing vehicle.
We were contacted by Cornwall Fire and Rescue about a new Volvo fire engine they were having issue’s with. They had contacted the top 3 tuning companies in the UK and no one had a solution for them. We think outside the box and have great relationship with hardware developers to provide solutions.
It had a huge lack of power and torque when laden. Being a 2018 Euro6 fire engine variant means we couldn’t do our normal ECU tuning. Instead we choose a Dimsport RapidBox tuning box. These are fantastic tuning boxes, they are full adaptable to each vehicle. Not your normal box of plug and play, which cause issues and limp mode.
The Dimsport RapidBox comes with a remote control ON/OFF switch, and a handheld adjustment controller. In which you have change the cut in RPM, Boost Pressure and the amount the Injectors open for, making it fully customisable to its chosen application. On this application it required some soldering on to the ECU loom nr the ECU (We still made it easy to remove if required)
After fitting we adjusted the tuning box to suit the application. Then road testing the fire engine had been transformed, no more lag, more torque, smoother torque delivery.
We provide the most reliable tuning services on the market. If you would like more information on how we can support and improve your fleets MPG and performance. Call 07940462224 or PM us for more information.
