CelticTuning: free BMW sample.xls
Dyno Chiptuning: free BMW sample.xls
I created this chip tuning database privately in February 2018 when someone asked me to scrap data from celtictuning.co.uk showing engine power and torque before and after ECU remapping. In April 2018 a second person was interested in similar database, by this way I made database public on website so everyone needing it can purchase. About 10 people purchased by end of 2018.
2 customers said that CelticTuning is not accurate and suggested to scrap instead from br-performance.be and dyno-chiptuningfiles.com. And probably tomorrow a 4th customer will say that all 3 above websites are not accurate and suggest scraping from a 4th website. I do not really enjoy scraping multiple too similar websites, and waste time updating multiple databases with less than 5 sales per year. We need to decide at ONE website. What makes one better than others?
Coverage: all cars and light commercial vehicles, plus some heavy trucks sold in Europe, earliest car included is BMW 3-Series from 1991, but completion is significant after 1995. Dyno Chiptuning include also few cars that are not sold officially in Europe (GMC, Holden, Pontiac, etc).
List of updates CelticTuning:
64 makes, 901 models, 4628 engines, as February 2018.
64 makes, 904 models, 4631 engines, as April 2018.
64 makes, 940 models, 4971 engines, as 18 February 2019.
List of updates Dyno Chiptuning:
76 makes, 862 models, 1445 generations, 7514 engines, as 28 December 2018.
78 makes, 866 models, 1455 generations, 7586 engines, as 18 February 2019.
82 makes, 926 models, 1591 generations, 8189 engines, as 16 October 2019.
Since 18 February 2019 when I updated both, as October 2019 Dyno got 7 sales and Celtic only 2 sales, giving me impression that does not worth to update Celtic anymore.
At the moment I created these databases I was not aware how tuning works. Several people asked me how to download the “tuning files”, I was confused what they meant since all what I am selling are Excel files with public data extracted from tuning company website (and many other websites).
This until someone informed me that anyone can tune his own car by downloading remapped files from internet and importing in their ECU. if you need this, you need to approach a tuning company, NOT me (database provider).
Later, someone else told me that can provide me few thousands ECU files in exchange of my Excel database. Can I trust this? If I get these ECU files, how do I should provide them to you and all people who want to tune themselves their own car?
