All modern cars and vans on the road today have an ECU (engine control unit). This engine control unit can almost be described as the brain of vehicles and contains a small processor that takes information from various sensors through the engine. Analyze information such as the temperature of the engine, the angle of the accelerator pedal, the oxygen content in the exhaust gases burned, as well as many more parameters. Using the information from these sensors, you can add the right amount of fuel, at the right time to provide a good mix of fuel economy, performance and emissions control by pulling, overtaking, pottering or reducing the highway.

Energy tuning and economy
Improved driveability


When a manufacturer develops a new car, it must take into account all the conditions to which it may be subject in all the regions in which it intends to sell this model. This means that instead of simply optimizing the ECU program or "map" to offer the best performance or the highest fuel efficiency you have to make concessions to the map to take into account these potential different operating conditions. These could include sub-standard fuels, extremes in temperature and altitude, different emission laws and even the possibility that the vehicle can not be repaired on a regular basis and in accordance with the instructions recommended by the manufacturer.

ECU remapping is taking a reading of the ECU processing chip from the standard map of vehicles and adjusting various parameters within the map such as fuel pressure, impulse pressure (in turbocharged applications) ignition advance and accelerator pedal control among others to release the true performance of the engine. It is a completely safe process, since it is only giving the engine the performance it should have had in the first place before all the commitments were applied to the original programming. Each engine will have its own unique map and by adjusting this we can fine-tune the characteristics of the engine; Releasing more energy and in many cases reducing fuel consumption too.


ECU programming will not only improve engine power and torque figures, it will also sharpen the throttle response and extend the power band. This will make the delivery of much more linear energy, which in turn will make the vehicle feel much more lively to drive and the engine more flexible. Frequently, the power output of the vehicle is restricted by the manufacturer for no other reason than to ensure that the vehicle fits into a class to satisfy the buyers of the fleet. As a driving enthusiast, you do not need or want such restrictions placed on your vehicle ECU and its performance can therefore benefit from the hidden power and torque locked within your engine management system.

The other main benefit of the reassignment will be a reduction in fuel consumption. With extra torque, especially at the bottom of the rev range, you will see fuel savings, as it will require less throttle input to maintain highway speeds, you can drive at a higher gear at a slower speed and Significantly help when fully loaded, Trailer or on gradients and even in start stop traffic.

Increase horsepower and torque


Many see the modern crop of turbocharged diesels as the future of road car tuning. Even in North America, a nation famous for its love of the gasoline engine is beginning to come to the benefits of turbo diesel passenger cars in particular. These engines offer fantastic potential for a reliable low-cost setting without removing any of the attractions of buying and running a turbo diesel vehicle, such as economy, reliability and longevity.
After your ECU upgrade to your turbo diesel engine, you can enjoy:

      Greater power
      Increase in torque
      Better throttle response
      Smoother feeding
      Improvement of fuel economy
      A safer overtaking

20-35% Extra Torque


Turbo gasoline engines have always been considered as the flagship sports engine for good reason. They boast much higher and torque figures than a non-turbocharged power plant with similar displacement and are usually fitted to the manufacturer's flagship models. They are also ideal candidates for programming since the ECU also controls the wastegate (turbo pressure control).

Better throttle response


The normally aspirated gasoline engine, although not the easiest to tune, can still benefit from a 10-15% power increase with an additional torque by carefully reprogramming various engine parameters into the map. Parameters such as fuel and ignition curves can be tuned to give better power and torque output. In some engines the timing of the camshaft can also be tuned into the map, giving additional improvements.

In many cases, "after-market" adjustment elements such as free-flow exhaust pipes, high-flow air filters and re-profiled camshafts can only be used by the engine once they have been made the necessary adjustments within the ECU. A careful recalibration of the correct maps can unlock the potential of the new engine parts. Other power gains may also be available when a higher octane fuel is used, allowing more ignition time.

Safer acquisition


When we remap a vehicle, especially when fuel economy is the priority we focus on improving low-end torque, in particular, and expanding the power band as much as possible.

This increase in low power torque will mean that less entry of the accelerator pedal is required to maintain cruise speeds, when fully loaded or when on a gradient. It also means that the vehicle will be more comfortable in higher gears at slower speeds, as well as requiring less gear changes in general.

If you combine these factors with the adjustment of your driving style to take full advantage of the extra low torque, you will see an improvement in fuel consumption. This is more effective in turbo-diesel engines where the savings could be up to 20%!

We do not change any hardware in your vehicle, we only modify the operation parameters in the program or map of the ECU. In many cases, the map stored in the processor of the ECU can be accessed through the vehicle's on-board diagnostic (OBD) port, which is usually located under the dashboard. On some newer models the ECU will have to be removed from the vehicle and the cover open, our technicians will then use the specialist's tools to read the original map directly from the process chip.

The technician will then load the original map to our map writing team that will adjust the parameters to maximize performance, fuel economy or a ready mix of both. Depending on the type of vehicle and ECU, the chip adjustment process can take less than an hour and if at any time you wish to return the ECU of your vehicle to its original default configuration, this can be done easily and free of charge since we always have a copy of the original software as a backup copy.
