Car remapping sometimes referred to as ECU tuning is when the settings on a car are modified & tweaked based on the owner’s preference
When manufacturers build cars, they develop map files that operates the vehicle making it run. When creating this file they have to take into consideration that the vehicle needs to operate in a range of varying conditions such as extreme temperatures, altitudes, poor quality fuels, Changing emission laws and vehicles not serviced regularly as recommended. Taking into account all of these factors means a compromise needs to be made on power and fuel economy to standardise a map for the engine to run smoothly and safely in these varying climates and conditions.
In the UK, however, we have high quality fuel supply, no extreme altitude, and the air does not get hot enough to deprive the engine of oxygen. This allows you to safely take advantage of the additional power, torque and fuel economy you can gain from a quality remap.
"Is ECU tuning safe?"
"Is ECU tuning worth it?"
"Is Remapping a car good or bad?"
These are some of the most common questions asked when it comes down to remapping. In short, remapping is great for those who primarily want to get the best out of their car. By this we mean increasing horsepower, increasing performance & optimising for efficiency.
"Can remapping damage your engine?" – No. Not if done correctly. Although, the changes you make may put further strain on the engine. If the remapping is done by a trained professional then your engine will be perfectly safe.
Can all cars be remapped? – Not necessarily. We often find that cars built before 2000 are simply just too old and therefore do not possess the ability to be ECU tuned. Currently at We Do Motors we offer tuning via the OBD port.
