Gain More Power With An ECU Remap
The vast majority of modern cars are manufactured with an ECU or engine management system that monitors information such as gear position and throttle position and then dictates how much fuel and air should be delivered to the engine. This means that the ECU is responsible for determining how much power output your car delivers. Unfortunately, very few engine management systems use the most appropriate data for a particular driver and instead rely on stock data that is used in all cars of a particular model or class in all area’s of the world.
A single model of car is usually sold in various countries and to different styles of driver. While it may be true that you use the best quality fuel and oil, and you replace parts with the best replacements available, not all drivers will. Some will use economy fuel where premium would be better suited while others will opt for the cheapest available replacement parts even though they may not be the best suited to that vehicle.
What’s more, different drivers live in different conditions. Some owners may live in extremely cold conditions while others live in blisteringly hot weather conditions. Some will live in dry, arid areas while others live in wet and damp conditions. Manufacturers must make allowances for all of these possible conditions and driving styles when they create stock data for use in the engine management system.
Improve The Drive Quality
ECU remapping means removing this stock data and replacing it with something that is better suited to the needs of the individual. This typically means that you will enjoy greater driving results from the car. Flat spots in acceleration will be ironed out and you will enjoy a smoother and more entertaining drive but perhaps the biggest benefit is the power gain that can be made.
Increase The Power
ECU remapping can offer up to 25% increase in the BHP that is produced by your car. A 160BHP car can quickly deliver 200BHP instead. This is a significant improvement which can give you much greater power under acceleration or, if you continue to drive as you do now, it can provide you with savings of up to 20% in your fuel consumption.
