- ECU Remapping
PD Motor Repairs
PD Motor Repairs offer complete Engine Control Unit Remapping, sometimes referred to as Chip Tuning for petrol or diesel engines. If you have a diesel engine and a Diesel Particulate Filter, or DPF, we can also offer services to resolve any issues you might have with it, all from our garage in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.
We use the latest technology to offer individuals and commercial businesses remapping services to optimise engine power, performance and fuel economy for their vehicle.
Most modern cars contain an ECU, or Engine Control Unit, which is a small computer that controls exactly how the engine operates. Vehicle manufacturers generally set to the software on the ECU to their standard, default settings for each vehicle model when it leaves the factory. Because car manufacturers sell all over the world, the default software has to take into account varying climates, laws and restrictions as well as the various quality of fuel.
ECU remapping replaces this default setup of the ECU software with new software that can optimise the performance of your car.

We only employ highly qualified technicians and adhere to the strictest standards.
After your car has had its ECU remapped you will notice that overall torque and power has been 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 providing a safer driving experience. Throttle response will be improved and performance is typically enhanced across the engine rev range.
During normal driving you usually see an increase in your MPG, decreasing the cost at the fuel pump and reducing your carbon footprint.
All ECU Remapping at PD Motor Repairs is carried out by trained technicians 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.
Chip tuning is the origin of what modern day ECU Remapping has become. Chip tuning requires the removal of the EPROM itself from inside the ECU on which the software is stored, when it can be reprogrammed or swapped. Chip tuning or chipping has become 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 this chip tuning service.
