How does Remapping work.
A vehicle remap replaces default software on the ECU, overwriting it with new software which can be programmed to optimize the cars overall performance. This is known as vehicle remapping because the ECU is essentially a program that controls how the engine works. When your car is remapped, the tuned software is plugged into your cars serial port (or OBD port) which then overwrites the engine map with the new version to enhance engine performance. The ability to flash directly through the OBD has brought the tuning industry on leaps and bounds, with constant development on the engine now being much quicker via the flash process, it has enabled tuners to develop some of the best software in the world.
What does remapping do to your vehicle.
Many people say that ECU remapping doesn’t affect fuel usage, however this is not technically true. Because of the process involved in ECU remapping more fuel is going to be consumed in order to produce the increase in power. If the car is driven in an enthusiastic way after the remap has been carried out then the fuel economy will not increase (and in some cases may decreases). If, however, the driver modifies their driving style to make the most of the increased power and torque throughout the rev range then fuel economy can be increased. A good example of this could be that the improvement in torque produced by the engine after remapping means the driver no longer has to drop down a gear to maintain speed on an incline or may not have to change gear as frequently in traffic. All of these little things add up to an improvement in fuel economy.
Why would you want to remap your engine.
There are many reasons to choose vehicle remapping. Firstly, you will notice that your engine responds better when the accelerator is pressed. The overall torque and power will be noticeably increased. Power delivery will be smoother making for a much safer driving experience, which in turn also makes it easier and safer to overtake. During normal driving you will notice that your MPG is better which not only decreases the cost of fuel that you will have to pay, but it also minimizes your carbon foot print. Throttle response will be improved and the rev range will be enhanced.
Does a remap have to be done on a dyno ?
Dyno tuning/remapping your vehicle is false advertising. This simply because the ecu of a standard vehicle cannot be altered live while the vehicle is being run on the dyno (unlike aftermarket ecus where this can be done). The ecu must be read (info downloaded) Then modified with special software. Once complete it is then written (up loaded) to the ecu. Then the engine is started and run on the dyno to measure the power and torque figures and to give a dyno result sheet. It is commonly advertised by shops with a dyno that the vehicle “is dyno tuned”. There is no denying that seeing a print out figure is good to see comparisons of before and after you are also paying for this dyno time in the price of the tune. This is why i can offer the tune cheaper as not charging you for the dyno result. I believe in you road testing the vehicle to feel the results as nothing will simulate or prove this better than you actually driving it. If you would like a dyno result it can be done for extra cost. The reason a 30 day money back guarantee is offered is because we are that confident the tuning is that good we can stand by it and you will be 100 percent happy.
