Why should I remap my car’s ECU?
When car manufacturers create engine maps for the ECU, they have to develop them so
that the engines they control have a balance between fuel economy and performance for
all geographical regions and all driving styles.
As a result, the software on your car is not necessarily optimized for your driving style or
for fuel supplied in the country in which you live. Understanding this, many vehicle
owners wish to further refine their car’s engine map through the process known as “ecu
remapping” so more the engine’s performance potential can be released.
Typically non-turbo petrol engine cars have less to gain from remapping than turbo
charged vehicles regardless of whether or not the engine is petrol or diesel. Turbo
diesel engines tend to realize the most gain from ECU remapping as they benefit both
from the turbo as well as from their higher compression ratio. But equally performance
increases will differ because the requirement of the vehicle owner will be different.
Not every car owner wants the most powerful vehicle, some would rather a blend of
improved overtaking performance when required mixed in with improved fuel economy
for the rest of the time.
We offer a personal and quality Ecu remapping service for cars and vans from 2000-2012,
both petrol and diesel are cared for at affordable prices from only £199.
