What is ECU Remapping?
Most modern cars contain an ECU (Engine Control Unit), a small computer that controls exactly how the engine operates. Vehicle manufacturers generally set the software on the ECU to standard, default settings before sending the vehicle out. Because car manufacturers sell all over the world, the default software has to take into account varying climates, laws & restrictions as well as various quality of fuel.
ECU remapping replaces this default setup of the ECU software with new software that optimises your cars performance.
What are the advantages of ECU Remapping?
After your car has had it’s ECU remapped you will notice that overall torque and power will be increased. You should also notice that your engine responds better when you accelerate and that power delivery will be smoother, making it easier to overtake and offering a safer driving experience. Throttle response will be improved and the rev range will be enhanced.
During normal driving you should also see an increase in your MPG, decreasing the cost at the fuel pump and reducing your carbon footprint.
The ECU Remapping Process
All ECU Remapping at PD Motor Repairs is carried out by a trained technician who will read the electronic program within the ECU and adjust specific settings to enable you to get the most performance from your vehicle.
The remapping process takes approximately one hour to complete and the benefits are effective immediately, as soon as you drive away.
What is Chip Tuning?
Chip tuning is the origin of what modern day ECU Remapping has become. Chip tuning requires the removal of the Eprom from the ECU with the software programmed to the chip on the bench. Chip tuning or chipping has become less and less prevalent in the marketplace with most ECU Remapping now done using the OBD (on-board diagnostics) port directly in your car. For older vehicles we still offer the chip tuning service.
