ECU remapping is the reprogramming of the engine management software that is found in modern cars. It helps to improve the performance of the car providing the driver with improved acceleration, more uniform revs, and can even help to reduce fuel spend by improving fuel economy. ECU remapping can provide benefits to both petrol and diesel cars and is especially useful for those cars fitted with turbos.
By using a professional ECU remapping company it is possible to greatly improve the performance of your car. The bespoke settings created for you mean that you can enjoy greater acceleration, improved all round performance, and it may even offer improvement to your fuel economy depending on your driving style and how you use the extra gains that ECU remapping provides.
Improved acceleration from the engine means that the car will pull away easier, retain revs more uniformly, and torque can be increased by 30% or more. Following ECU remapping, if you continue to drive in the same way then you will be using less petrol and this means that you will make cost savings on your fuel spend. Alternatively, you can use the extra drive that your remapped ECU gives you. You may not experience fuel savings but you will enjoy a much better drive.
ECU remapping can be used for turbo diesel and turbo petrol engines as well as non-turbo petrol. The gains offered with non-turbo diesel are not usually significant enough to warrant ECU remapping but once you’ve enjoyed the improvement in performance that most drivers experience you won’t turn back. In fact, many people ensure that their ECU can be remapped before they consider buying a new model of car.
