Engine remap without certification

Hi all,

One of the cars I brought over with the relocation has had a mild stage 1 remap done by a lesser known tuning company in Austria. This comes without a TUV certification, but the tuner states the emissions standard compliance has not been affected, and the car is otherwise stock.

I can declare it when the time will come for the MFK in autumn, but I fear trouble or even impossibility of getting it certified. I can also "forget" to mention it, as I somehow doubt they have access to manufacturer files to compare checksums etc.

Did anyone go through this, how has your experience been?

Who cares? It's only a problem if it fails the emission test.

They don't/won't/can't check these things at the MFK. I've got visible plug-in chips on two vehicles, and although I usually remove them for MFKs I've definitely forgotten to do so on at least one occasion, with no consequences.

Re: Engine remap without certification

That's what I've figured.

I've also asked colleagues at work - one chap says it can become an issue with insurance claims, as apparently they're in the habit of checking if there's a serious incident. I somehow doubt that as well, as again they'd require access to the OEM manufacturer files ...
