 Ecu Re mapping
So why should I remap my ECU? When vehicles are distributed throughout the world, manufacturers adopt a one map fits all policy. This one map has to take into account many different factors that are necessary for each export country. Areas such as climate, emissions, fuel quality etc all have to be considered by the manufacturer. What this means is that a vehicle ECU is never optimised for one individual situation
The increase in power and torque that is gained using ECU remapping provides a much smoother drive, with increased flexibility throughout the rev range, allowing for smoother acceleration and better overtaking.
We always carry out a full diagnostic scan before re-mapping any vehicle
What kind of improvements can I expect? As mentioned you will notice an improvement in power and torque right throughout the rev range, along with the possibility of improved fuel economy. See below for a general idea of average improvements for different engine types:

Petrol (non-turbo) By remapping a normally aspirated engine ECU, you would normally expect to see a 10 - 15% increase in power (bhp) depending on your exact engine specification, and around a 15 - 20% increase in torque (Nm) throughout the rev range. This improves engine response on a lighter throttle.

Petrol (turbo) By installing a modified engine ECU map on to a turbo engine you would normally expect to achieve around a 20 - 30% increase in power (bhp), with an increase in torque of around 20 - 40% depending on your engine specification. The large increases in both power and torque will greatly improve the engine flexibility in all gears and throughout the rev range.

Diesel (turbo) Remapping a diesel turbo ECU normally sees the greatest gains of any engine type. Typically you will achieve an increase of 25 - 50% power (bhp) and around a 50 - 75% increase in torque depending on your engine specification. The engine response is greatly improved throughout the whole rev range and in all gears. Diesel engines are well known for providing huge amounts of torque and in gear performance. A remapped modern turbo diesel engine has the ability to embarrass many petrol engine cars under normal driving conditions.

For those seeking the absolute maximum from their engines, we offer additional tuning stages of performance software & engine mapping.
Stage 2
The stage 2 software is designed for customers who have or are having an uprated performance exhaust fitted such as a full cat back system i.e. miltek or equivalent and/or a performance intake system.
We can either simply supply the remap to suit the modifications you have, or both the exhaust/intake and custom remap as a complete package, offering a discounted price compared to buying them separately.
Stage 3
This would be a custom remap with the exhaust & intake upgrades as above plus the addition of an intercooler, downpipe, or sports cat/de-cat fitted.
We can chip tune the early pre 2000 style ecu's as well
We can also remap the latest ecu's by programimg direct to the ecu
