“ECU REMAPPING IS THE ACT OF PERFORMING A CUSTOM SOFTWARE EDIT AND/OR UPDATE PERFORMED BY SPECIALISED EQUIPMENT”
WHY CONSIDER ECU REMAPPING FOR MY VEHICLE ?
ECU Remapping is for drivers who are seeking more from their vehicle with a Common Rain Diesel engine. Whether that be ambition be for;
- Torque and Power,
- Improved responsiveness,
- Enhanced towing ability and/or,
- Improved fuel economy.
WHO BENEFITS FROM ECU REMAPPING ?
By providing an all-round improvement in key aspects, those who see significant improvements are;
- Fleet Operators
- The family
As each driver’s requirements can differ, it is ideal to tailor a solution to suit the individual’s needs. Please get in touch with us to discuss your options.
WHAT EXACTLY IS AN ECU REMAP AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
An ECU (Engine Control Unit) controls the operation of the modern Diesel engine by sending and receiving data in real-time from a multitude of sensors from around the vehicle. An ECU Remap is when the action of the Remap changes triggers, reactions, timing, pressures, air and fuel ratios and temperature values relative to engine performance in many different “Maps” which make up the “File” of which the vehicle operates on.
There are almost an infinite number combinations of values inside ECU map files. How these Maps are tuned is a matter of road safety, environmental conditions, engine efficiency, power, and torque and engine reliability.
To correctly Remap the ECU of a modern Diesel engine requires extensive knowledge and experience with Common Rail engines and their characteristics, advanced knowledge and operation of tuning software platforms and an in-depth knowledge of mathematics and test equipment, accompanied by a high attention to detail. Experience comes with only with the best diagnostic tools and the technician’s knowledge for fine diagnosis is a must for fine-tuning.
Diesel ECU Remapping is a delicate operation for any vehicle. An ECU Remap is the safest way to tune a modern Common Rail vehicle, however, leaving a vehicle with an untrained operator who possesses poor equipment or lack of technical understanding is the most dangerous situation for any vehicle owner. There are many within the industry who profess to have this level of knowledge, most of which are false. It is very important to choose wisely when selecting a technician or “tuner” to perform an ECU Remap on your vehicle.
