Why ECU remap your vehicle?

A remap means you will get the best out of your engine – improving its performance, fuel efficiency and responsiveness.

You’ll also increase your vehicle's average MPG and save money on fuel costs.

Technically speaking, an ECU remap results in:

  • A boost in the power and performance of your vehicle by up to 80%.
  • Increased torque means less gear changes, a reduction in drivetrain wear and improvements in your vehicle's fuel efficiency.
  • Enhanced throttle and engine response giving you better control and a smoother drive.

Enter the manufacturer and model of your vehicle in the Vehicle Tuning dropdown on the right to see the performance upgrade that can be achieved.

What is engine (ECU) remapping?

A remap is a re-calibration of your vehicle's engine computer software, with either a focus on improving power/torque, or solely fuel economy.

Just about all vehicles built in recent times have an Electronic Control Unit or ECU.

It’s the ‘brain’ of the engine which not only controls its performance but also fuel delivery and emissions based on information it detects via sensors including temperature, air pressure and throttle position.

Why have remaps become popular?

The primary reason is, vehicle manufacturers have been reducing production costs by producing less physical engine variations.

For example, a car made in the 1990s would have been available with a choice of 1.6, 1.8, 2.0 and 3.0 litre petrol engines, all with different levels of power, then maybe three further diesel choices.

This meant that the manufacturer had to spend a considerable amount of money developing numerous engines which were physically completely different.

Move forward to today and we find that most manufacturers will only offer one petrol engine size and one diesel.

Although there will only be one engine "size" i.e 2.0 litre, there can be up to 4 different power levels available. And, more often than not, the only difference between these power levels is the engine computer software, the rest is identical.

This allows the manufacturers to reduce production costs, but offer variations in power by loading different software. This is where the remap comes in.

Let us take the 2015 Ford Transit Custom as an example.

They are all 2.2 litre diesel, available in 100, 125 and 155 horsepower variants. The engines are physically identical.

An ECU remap will take all three variants to an amazing 180 horsepower.

Obviously the owner of the 100HP will be a little more surprised with the results than the owner of the 155HP model, but the improvements are all very significant and more importantly, at a fraction of the cost of buying the top-of-the-range model.

How does a remap manage to extract more power?

When a vehicle leaves the production line it is tuned for a global market, taking into account all the varying levels of fuel qualities, differences in climates, temperatures and altitudes and countless other limiting factors.

Here in the UK, the number of variables is fairly limited.

This gives us scope for significant improvements on the original factory tuning by re-calibrating fuelling and turbo boost levels to better suit our specific environment.

Thus releasing the true potential of an engine, whether it's a petrol or diesel.

Will a remap affect the MOT?

Absolutely not. Our remaps are specifically designed to integrate perfectly with all of your vehicle's original equipment.

No physical modifications take place and the MOT and emissions test result will be unaffected.
