Remapping service


What is a remap?

ECU re-mapping, or chipping, is when adjustments are made to the standard 'map' which controls things like electronic fuel injection, ignition timing and turbo boost pressures, in the engine electronic control unit, the ECU.

When a vehicle is produced, the map programmed into the ECU by the manufacturer has to take into account various different driving conditions, outside temperatures, poor fuel and even the fact that some owners don't have their cars serviced when they should. 

When we remap a car, we modify the standard 'map' and make the car more engaging to drive. Each map has been individually optimised to the engine and rigorously tested to ensure it does what it's supposed to while safely eliminating those 'performance compromises'. In most cases this map is entered electronically through the car's diagnostic port without touching the ECU.

Then the car is tested before you come to collect it to make sure everything is operating as it should

What are the benefits?

In a nutshell, you'll notice improved fuel consumption and all round better performance.

In today's world of soaring fuel prices, you want better mpg from your car. Saving fuel is important but you still want to enjoy your driving experience.

Our engine tuning chip, or remap, gives you the best of both. 

Every optimisation gives you:

 - a more responsive engine

 - smoother power delivery 

 - improved acceleration for safer overtaking

For non turbo petrol car

 - up tp 10% more power

 - enhanced throttle rsponse

For turbocharged petrol cars

 - up to 20% more power

 - up to 25% more mid range torque

For turbocharged diesel cars

 - up to 30% more power

 - fuel economy improvements

How does a remap work?

We carefully match increases in turbo boost pressure with the remapped ignition timing and fuelling. It doesn’t affect reliability or the life of the engine. And most of the time this can be done through the vehicle's diagnostic port.
