All of our services begin with an in-depth consultation with one of our vehicle experts to discuss how you would like to improve your vehicle and which particular services and adaptations will be the most beneficial and provide the greatest improvement in overall performance. We can also advise you on the best options available, to complement your upgraded vehicle, with everything from Types, Exhausts and Air Filters to Brakes, Suspensions and Alloy Wheels.
What is vehicle remapping?
Vehicle remapping is a highly specialised service which alters the default settings in your vehicle’s on-board computer or Engine Control Unit (ECU) – to optimise driving performance and improve power economy. Most cars are manufactured and set to perform at restricted levels to take into account driving conditions, petrol and diesel quality and the laws which govern the numerous countries which the cars are going to be sold in. Vehicle remapping, effectively, modifies these settings to provide you with the most effective settings for your individual requirements – resulting in better performance, better fuel efficiency and an altogether smoother ride.
What’s so good about it?
There are numerous benefits to having your vehicle remapped, which all make your vehicle faster, more responsive and safer and smoother to drive. You will notice that it becomes more responsive, especially in response to acceleration, which will also become faster. You’ll be able to overtake faster and more efficiently,(that tractor that you find yourself hesitating to over-take) which is an important aspect of safer driving. Changes to the ECU, to improve power and performance, mean your car will no longer struggle whilst driving, which will in turn will provide better fuel economy and more money in your pocket. You will see and feel a noticeable difference when you’re handling and accelerating out of tight corners and roads which require you to drive up steep inclines.
How do we do it?
ECU Remapping, or chip tuning as it used to be referred to, is the modification of the vehicle’s standard factory settings and on-board computer, using a complex set of refinements and computer programming techniques to re-programme the vehicle to respond differently. This process, basically, involves us downloading your vehicles current settings and making changes to some of the programming which control acceleration, power, torque and overall handling. In other words, we fine-tune the Engine Control Unit and then re-programme it by re-uploading a better more effective set of engine programming controls.
We can handle everything from: boats to ships, motor bikes to sports cars, vans to articulated lorries and not forgetting the farm tractor and other commercial vehicles. We can upgrade older models to give your vehicle more advanced engine control and tweak the programming on some of the latest ECU’s on the market to make their already advanced performance even better! Most engine tuning will result in an up to 40% improvement on pre-remapping performance and up to 20% fuel economy.
EGR & DPF Removal
In addition to ECU Remapping we also provide an EGR and DPF removal service.
Many modern vehicles come with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) which is designed to reduce pollution and reduce emissions but they can be more trouble than they’re worth and lead to expensive repairs when they fail. We can delete this feature from your vehicles programming to prevent any further problems and improve fuel economy. We can remove the Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve (EGV) too which can cause similar problems and expensive replacements when carbon deposits build up and block the valve.
If you’re looking to improve the overall performance of your vehicle, you may want to improve some of the other features to compliment your vehicle remap. We can also fit Performance Exhaust, replace Air Filters and upgrade your brakes, types and alloy wheels.
With improved performance and a reduction in motoring costs to look forward to; what are you waiting for? Contact our team today to arrange a Free Vehicle Tuning Consultation and no-obligation discussion about how we can help improve your vehicle.
