Rav4 2.2 Auto Remap


Recommended Posts

I have found a specialist tuning place that can remove the ECU and perform a remap. Is there any problems doing this on an Auto Rav4 2.2 D-CAT?

I do not trust the tuning boxes and would prefer a professional remap. Anyone done this? Thanks

Well Satts67 seems like no one has had a remap done on their Rav4 then? I am happy to note that your stage 1 remap courtesy of Pro remaps performance tuning went well and the torque and mpg has improved giving an overall 3-4 mpg increase. All done via the OBD2 port so no need to remove ECU to read the file. Feel free anyone to join the chat.😀

Just to keep the conversation going with myself here is an update on the remap.

Car performs best overall in Normal mode. When eco mode is selected I get better mpg but runs pretty much as it did before the remap. Not tried sport mode yet.

For those not wishing to go for a remap the Lindop kits are still available from Lindop Toyota @ £375.

Continuing the conversation with myself (feel free to join in!) I have noticed that the tick over rises to 1200rpm when the shifter is moved to 'park' and back to normal 800rpm when moved to 'drive'. I cant remember if it did this before the remap (or if it did I did not notice it) Can someone with a Gen4 2.2 Auto verify if this is normal please and why it would do this?

For years the main reason that owners used tuning boxes was that Toyotas were difficult to successfully remap, unlike some other makes.

I don't have the same version and mine is manual... but it has an 'idle up' button that causes the engine to increase the idle speed from approx 800 to 1200. Maybe you have the same button and it has been pressed?
