Our specialist tuners normally expect savings
in excess of 10%
on economy upgrades across the range of manufacturers. Even if the saving is
only 1 mile per gallon for average mileage drivers that amounts to 1200
miles a year and a lot of litres saved!
HOW IT WORKS
Modern cars use mini computers called Electronic
or ECU for engines and brakes. The
Computer Chips are loaded with software a set of instructions to follow called MAPS
(like road maps ) based on measurements from the cars sensors. Modern Car
Tuning adjusts the software so the ECU follows a new MAP to enhance either performance or economy
with significant torque improvements.
There are other various industry marketing
terms like CHIP TUNING, SUPER CHIPS where the original ECU chip was replaced
by a tuned chip mostly by soldering a new one in, back in the early days of
ECUs. Most modern ECUs are now programmed through the diagnostic port with
several advantages like being virtually undetectable apart from underneath
your foot, speed of installation and no hanging add on box with dodgy wiring
that lies to the ECU air temperature causing excessive over fuelling to gain
power sometimes resulting in lots of black smoke. Air temperature
measurement is a safeguard to stop your engine blowing up so thats why its
important to REMAP the ECU directly.
We employ the services of specialist tuners to build custom
ECU-MAPS for us so we can download the original manufacturers map from the vehicle and
upload a new retuned map. Our priority is to ensure the vehicles driveability
throughout the engines rev range building in a
margin of safety within the manufactures tolerances not to overstress the
We run a fully mobile service in Cornwall with national uk
contacts so could pass you onto a reputable Company near you. For those that
have the know how to remove the ECU, we accept ECU's through the post but call or email us first to ensure we
have the exact MAPS and connectors for your vehicle.
If you have faults or suspect faults with your vehicle they
must be repaired before using a re-map as it will only make things worse.
