ECU Remapping can save you money on fuel and improve your cars acceleration. Sound to good to be true? Read on…
New cars are designed to operate in a range of different environments across the regions the car may be sold in. What does this mean in laymans terms? In one word, compromise. Because the manufacturer needs to take into account things like poor fuel, extreme weather conditions (heat and cold), altitude and emission law the performance of your car will be compromised. Quite often a vehicles power output is restricted to ensure that the vehicle fits into a class to suit fleet buyers.
But we have a solution at Station Garage Kintore; ECU Remapping!
Every car and van on the road has an ECU (Engine Control Unit) which is a small computer (think of it as your car’s brain and you are pretty much there!). It analyses the engine temperature, accelerator pedal angle, oxygen content in the exhaust gases as well as many more parameters. It’s constantly monitoring millions of reading from sensors around the engine in microseconds to ensure you have the optimal driving set up meaning you have the right amount of fuel being fed to your engine to suit your driving at any particular time whether you are pulling away, overtaking, pottering down the road or driving hard on back country roads.
Station Garage Kintore’s ECU remapping service is a totally safe process that allows our specially trained technicians to remap the settings of the ECU adjusting factors such as fuel pressure, turbo boost, ignition advance and throttle pedal control to release the true performance of an engine. It’s giving the engine the settings / performance it should have had from day one unleashing more power and improving fuel consumption
Each car is unique and every remapping is different but the end result is a finely tuned engine operating at it’s best. ECU remapping will not only improve the engines power and torque it will also sharpen the throttle response and widen the power-band. The other main benefit of remapping will be a reduction in fuel consumption. With the extra torque especially at the bottom of the rev range you will see a fuel saving as it will require less throttle input to maintain higher speeds.
ECU remapping benefits;
- Increased horsepower
- Increased torque
- Better throttle response
- Smoother power delivery
- Improved fuel economy
- Safer overtaking
We do not change any hardware in your vehicle, we just modify the operating parameters in the ECU. Depending on the vehicle the entire process can take under an hour and if at any time you wish to return your vehicles ECU to its original default settings, this can be done easily.
