The Challenge

In this blog post, we delve into the benefits of tuning the Land Rover Discovery Sport. The Land Rover Discovery Sport, a luxury SUV that replaced the Land Rover Freelander in 2014, is produced with various engine options, including both petrol and diesel. Our focus here is on the Land Rover Discovery Sport with the 2.0L Ingenium diesel engine, released in 2016 and managed by a Bosch MEDC17.9 ECU.

Despite receiving many positive reviews, the 2.0L Ingenium diesel engine in the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is rated at only 150 horsepower. This rating is a result of conservative ECU settings designed to meet regulations across numerous countries, rather than optimize engine performance. Consequently, the engine feels restricted, leading to a less enjoyable driving experience. Additionally, emission systems like the EGR and DPF in this 2.0L diesel engine are known to cause performance and reliability issues.

The Solution

To address these performance and reliability concerns, we use the Alientech KESS3 to access and tune the ECU. Through ECU tuning, we adjust the settings to optimize the engine’s performance specifically for your driving environment and needs. These adjustments result in increased power and torque, leading to improved throttle response and safer overtaking. Optimizing the engine also enhances fuel efficiency, making the driving experience more enjoyable and cost-effective.

Emission systems can cause reliability issues when they clog and fail, leading to expensive repairs. However, by adjusting the emission settings within the ECU, we can eliminate these issues. Our emissions solution ensures that your Land Rover Discovery Sport remains reliable and roadworthy. Overall, ECU tuning your Land Rover Discovery Sport can significantly enhance your driving experience and reduce expenses.
