What is remapping?

Getting the most from your car in terms of performance and economy is a great way to improve your overall driving experience and save money on your fuel costs over the months and years. While tuning a car for optimal performance may sound daunting and complicated to many casual motorists, you may be interested to hear that it can be done in as little as 60 minutes, by ‘remapping’.

 

Remapping, sometimes called ECU tuning, is when the settings of a car’s ‘engine control unit’ (ECU) is altered to improve several areas of the vehicle’s performance. By overwriting the existing settings with new software, the owner can re-programme the car to manage the fuel injection, airflow, sensors and more (within legal limitations).

Can I have my car done?

Most cars upto current date can be remapped. We offer both OBD and Bench remapping. Drop us a message with your vehicle details and I will look into any requirements and current remap specs.

How long doe's it take?

All OBD remaps are done in 1 working day, normally within 1 hr once work commences. Bench remapping can take 3-4 working days due to the nature of the service. We always advise customers if this is the case before bench remapping is needed.

Do I get a warranty?

Remapping any vehicle carries risks. We fully cover ECU units that are mapped, but not the vehicle. Remapping and gaining extra power can show hidden issues with the vehicle and is normally a maintenance issue rather than a remapping issue. Its always highly advised that all servicing schedules are up to date and engine conditions including all pipework is in good condition. We always carry out a ECU fault code scan prior to remapping and refuse to remap any vehicle that has fault codes stored and present due to this risk.
