The below instructions are for programming the VAG diesel cars using Galletto
MPPS is preferable over Galletto and easier to use - MPPS includes recovery mode if a map goes wrong.
If you intend on using clone Galletto leads please make sure you first read your ECU BEFORE you purchase the map. BLACKSMOKE supplys maps and do not offer full support on your PC with clone leads.  General support is offered relating to map selection etc.

99.99% of all remaps go fine, If you break your ECU by following the guide and using my files, send me your ECU and I'll send it back working!!

Once you click ok it will start reading the ECU map, if your car fails to read with a seedkey error, remove fuses 11 and 15 which will turn off the dash.
After the ECU is read it will ask you to turn off the ignition.

Buy a map from my site, it will automatically send the file to your email address you pay my website.
Please note that the the file extension is .mod, some computers think this is a movie file but don't worry. It is the correct extension for Galetto.

Click "Open file"
Select the file from my website.
Press OK
Turn on the ignition (be aware for the fuel pump noise if you have removed the fuses for the dash)
Get comfortable, don't open/ close doors. make sure the laptop is stable (internet, antivirus and unused applications should be turned off)

Breath in and out for the next 90 seconds (This is the bit people forget)

Enjoy your new performance!!!!!!!!

If you removed the fuses, put them back in and expect an airbag warning. This warning is due to the fact the airbag controller could not communicate with the dash once reset it will be gone for good.

If you are unsure which of my downloadable files are correct for your car please email me your original file to
