When it comes to Diesel Tuning and Performance in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast areas, everyone has their own self-proclaimed expert opinion, especially when it comes to an ECU Remap. Misinformation is widespread amongst Facebook groups, website forums and the broader internet in particular, so a true understanding of professional ECU Remap is not so common, and nor do many trust it.

Diesel Tuning Brisbane is the most trusted Diesel Tuning, Service and Repair Centre near Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, specializing in a Professional ECU Remap service. Here are 5 common misconceptions about an ECU Remap that put to rest the rumours and misinformation, showing you the true benefits of a Professional ECU remap, and giving you the confidence to improve your vehicle’s driving performance in the safest way possible. 

Here is the truth about the 5 most common misconceptions about an ECU Remap.

Misconeption# 1: “An ECU Remap will damage my engine”

This is the most common concern for most people. Especially when it comes to changing the programming that runs your car engine. Experience, equipement, facilities and trust in the technician are a must for any professional ECU Remap. Any vehicle worth $50 to $250,000 is not in safe hands when left with a business without any of these factors.

It is true that poor tuning can damage the engine can damage engine and powertrain components, but this is not specific to an ECU Remap; moreover, any type of tuning. Experienced professionals like Diesel Tuning Brisbane possess the latest technology and highly trained technicians in a safe and controlled environment.

Misconception #2: “An ECU Remap Voids My Warranty”

After investing all that money in your nice new car, the last thing anybody wants to do is void their new car warranty.

Whilst some tuning can void the drivetrain warranty, a professional ECU Remap by Diesel Tuning Brisbane is most often invisible to OEM and Dealership scanners and can always be reversed before engaging with a manufacturer’s warranty program.

We have the ability to alter and restore the CVN (Calibration Verification Number), and Flash Memory Counters and implement tuning methods that bypass this process altogether, making our ECU Remap untraceable. How do we know this? Because we have all of the latest market-leading programming tools and a host of OEM Diagnostic Tools for popular makes such as Toyota, Audi, Volkswagen, BMW, Jeep, Ford, Mazda and more.
