Our performance remaps are vehicle specific and carried out by professional software developers who have years of experience customising vehicle software. When manufacturers produce software for a vehicles ECU they tailor it to work in different altitudes, hot climates, cold climates and countries with poor quality fuel. Due to this you will not be able to get the best from your vehicle. With a custom performance remap we are able to tailor the software to get the most from your vehicles performance.
By having a performance remap on your petrol or diesel car you can expect to benefit from the following:
By having a remap specifically aimed at fuel savings, we will focus on increasing lower end torque which will in turn lead to better driving in higher gears at lower rpms, by adjusting the drivability this will lead to less throttle requirement. The savings in fuel consumption can vary but will be particularly best on turbo-charged diesel engines with gains up to 20% possible.
No. Remapping an engine ECU is not illegal
Yes, as a professional company we must inform you that you should declare that you have had the ECU remapped to your insurance company.
No, our remaps are carried out to improve the engine performance but still keep everything within its operating tolerances, there is no need to worry about damage.
ECU remapping is very hard to detect as no hardware changes are made - but if the manufacturer was to know it may affect your warranty. We keep all original files on our database so can revert you back to the original file at any time.
If for any reason you were not happy with the extra performance or fuel consumption gains we can happily put your original Map back on the ECU.
The process will usually take around an hour and half.
