    AOC Pricing

    AOC have managed to secure the following pricing for AOC members only. These prices are for the 7th Generation 2.2 I-CDTI engine only.

    Stage 1 or 2 remap (mobile service but excludes North West Wales and Scotland) £275 inc VAT

    Stage 1 or 2 remap (HQ Only) £200 inc VAT

    Performance Increase

    Stage 1 from 138bhp to 193bhp (Torque from 252Lbft to 292Lbft)
    Stage 2 from 138bhp to 204bhp (Torque from 252Lbft to 310Lbft)

    Celtic Tuning openly advise that their Stage 2 remap will require an uprated clutch due to the torque levels exceeding the factory specification (do other companies advise you of the need to do this?)

    2.2 i-DTEC Engine Tuning

    Celtic Tuning are able to offer 2.2 I-DTEC tuning. Due to the complexities they are unable to offer the above prices. Please contact them (as below) for details on their pricing.

    Tuning Charts


    If you do a quick search on the internet you will find remaps available for less and boasting 1000bhp! Please don’t be tempted by these, many of these “companies” are after a quick buck and have no care if your car runs unsafe boast levels etc. Will they still be around in 22 years like Celtic Tuning? Do any of these “companies” have business premises or are they just file uploaders? You have been warned!

    How to take advantage of these prices

    To take advantage of the above prices you must be a member on AOC. Contact Celtic Tuning via their website either using their online enquiry form or by telephone. Ensure you mention that you are an AOC member otherwise you will be charged differently!
  2. Dear Celtic Tuning,

    Can you do a remap that offers better fuel economy over increased performance?

    In fact I don't mind a performance decrease.

    Why? Well, I have a desire to meet that old 800+ miles on one tank gag.

    I am sure it is possible as I have achieved about 720 miles on tankful of diesel over the following conditions:

    Driving at 50 mph on cruise control
    140 miles per day
    Over four/five days mainly motorway driving but also urban as the journey was Bedford to Isle of Dogs, London (about 70 miles one way)

    I eagerly await your reply

    Hi Saran Solo I would like you welcome you to this forum, as for your questions surrounding viability of their claims, If you have joined this forum to seek clarification it would be better directed to them .Celtic Tuning may not pick it up.

    May I also take this opportunity for you to complete your profile and a little bit more about yourself. A first thread of such nature is looked dim light in my opinion. Please so not openly question this on this thread, please feel to get in touch with me if you want to raise your concerns.

    Fuel economy is not gained by reducing power, nor is it x amount of miles at x amount of speed will return x amount of fuel economy. Fuel economy is determined by a load basis using fuel maps. At high loads and at low RPM is the point in which your vehicle will inject the most fuel into the system in order to get the momentum of the vehicle.

    Thus in order to improve economy we try to improve the driveability allowing you reach your cruising speed in a reduced time saving reducing the amount injected into the system. When you hit a section that will increase the load on the vehicle in higher gears such as a hill, this will in turn increase the quantity injected over the potentiometer/throttle position, by increasing the torque in the system the level of increment of throttle depression will be reduced and in return inject less fuel, saving further fuel.

    The long and short is it comes down to how you drive and the most efficient driving style is not always the slowest speed possible in the highest gear. You haven't mentioned which vehicle you have, but realistically 800 miles is not going to be achieved from the experience we have on either generation of the Honda diesel engines.

    I would also suggest a remap would not benefit your driving style if you are driving as you have described.

    Hi Dean, you're best giving Celtic Tuning a call or visiting their website. They are so busy they don't get on much to answer questions. The petrol 2.4 doesn't appear on their website but that doesn't mean they can't tune it. I'm not sure what the possible gains are on that engine but as I said give them a call. (01726 892873 - Tell them you got their details from AOC).

    Does anyone know if Celtic tuning do an EGR off option to stop the EGR warning light if its blanked off?
    I have seen some Premier Tuning threads that mention this, but the Premier after remap power/torque figures on their website are considerably lower than Celtic's stated in this thread.
    Many thanks.
    Regards, Mark. (currently looking for a 7th Generation I-CDTI in Scotland).

    I think this is something I'll definitely be looking at in the future. Few niggles to sort out first but I've got big plans for my girl.

    I know the petrol engine isn't listed in the offer, but I've heard of 207-240BHP coming out of a Stage 1 on a 2.4.
