Car Tuning

If you’re looking for a way to improve your car's performance, engine tuning is the answer that you’re searching for. Through engine tuning, you can dramatically alter factors such as fuel efficiency as well as the power output. There are a few ways that you can do this.

Chip tuning is one possibility. With chip tuning, you can modify or erase the ECU chip in your car’s engine. Think of your car like a computer. If you want a computer to run more efficiently, you just need to change the software. That’s essentially what’s involved with chip tuning. By modifying the chip, it’s possible to achieve a higher level of efficiency.

The ECU or engine control unit is located in the engine management system. When we access it, we can change a number of different parameters. This includes amount of fueling, ignition timing and turbo boost.

How Do We Do It?

During Engine remapping, you first need to read the original file. You can then download this file for modification. We can reprogram it and put it back into the ECM. The software is read and reprogrammed through the OBDII diagnostics support. There are no physical changes. That means that it falls under both servicing and emissions guidelines in the UK. We don’t alter the idle running or any other areas that would affect emissions.

What Type Of Effect Can This Have?

By engine tuning your vehicle you can increase both the power and performance . The big question is by how much. We believe, with all the mods in place, you could see a fuel efficiency increase of thirty percent. A welcome change, we think you’ll agree. You’ll notice the benefit every time you head to the petrol station.

How Long Will It Take?

Is It Better Than A Tuning Box?

The answer to this question isn’t quite that simple. There are a number of cars on the market right now where chip tuning and ECU remapping is not possible. For these vehicles, an add-on such as a tuning box may still be an appropriate option. However, it’s important to realise that a tuning box only changes how much fuel is put in. It doesn’t alter the turbo pressure, and therefore, the results are significantly less. That’s why we would always recommend ECU remapping where possible.
