When a manufacturer develops a new car they have to take into consideration all the conditions it may be exposed to. This means instead of just optimising the ECU’s program or ‘map’ to deliver the best performance or the most fuel efficiency they have to make compromises. These compromises allow the to the map to take into account potential differing operating conditions and the needs of the average customer. Some of the things manufacturers need to consider are sub-standard fuels, extreme temperatures and altitude, different emission laws and even the possibility that vehicle may not be serviced on a regular basis.
When we remap your ECU we read from the ECU’s processing chip of the vehicles standard compromised map and adjust various parameters within the map such as fuel pressure, boost pressure (on turbocharged applications) ignition advance and throttle pedal control amongst others to release the true performance from the engine. As a result we can optimise the ECU Map for your specific requirements and get the best possible performance from your vehicle.
It is a completely safe process as it is just giving the engine the performance it should have had in the first place before all the compromises were applied to the original programming. Every engine will have its own unique map and by adjusting this we can fine tune the characteristics of the engine; unleashing more power and in many cases reduce fuel consumption too.
