Linea Tjet – The story of transformation to a 150hp beast.
The TJet comes with a 1.4 Turbo Petrol engine that churns out an 112hp power and 207 nm torque.
After the success and acceptance of switchable remaps in 1.3 MultiJet engines by the Fiat fans across India, we thought we should extend our R&D to the Fiat turbo petrol as well. Till now only remaps were available for the 1.4 T Engines worldwide.
Our hunt for a used TJet started and without much searching around luckily we could get hold of a well maintained car from Malapuram, Kerala which ran just 15,000 kms. Thanks Dr. Abdul Missiah for maintaining the car in immaculate condition and FMCians Cijith and Nimish to help us connect with the car owner. Finally Wolf acquired a 2012 model Tjet on 31 May 2014, for exclusive research on switchable remaps. Driving the car we got a WoW..feeling.. such a nice enthusiastic car, awesome handling and great performance when compared to its peers. A perfect trade-off between comfort and handling.
Before procuring the Tjet itself , the process of extracting the code and analyzing started way back in Dec 2013. Thank you Mr. Rengarajan for his kindness to extend his Tjet for research. Remapping the car was as easy process, but retaining the stock and programming multi-mode selection was a tedious task. Finally after 7 months of solid research we achieved a breakthrough in the switchable remaps on Linea TJet. After rigorous testing and fine tuning the final version was rolled out by July 2014.
Details of switchable remap
The ECU: ME 7.9.10
The Process: We took the TJet ECU on bench and extracted the code. Working on the code level we
cracked the ECU code and were able to program multi-mode. The switch indication is programmed in
the Tachometer. No-lift-shift and Launch controller programs are still under testing.
The Maps :
Mode 1: Stock map
Mode 2: 140 hp/ 230 nm
Mode 3 : 150 hp/ 240 nm (Advanced timing for 93 Octane Fuel)
Mode 3 can be used only when you use the car with 93 Octane fuel. The timing in this mode is advanced
for high performance.
