ECU Remapping Northampton
These days all vehicles are controlled by an "Engine Control Unit" called ECU (see picture - ECU in BMW X3). An ECU is responsible for parameters of work of engines in every condition of load and speed. That is how injection and gearbox or traction controls should works is established by a manufacturer's by table of value called map.
Usually memory of ECU has hundreds of those maps and thousands of single values. Changing some values in those maps (using professional equipment) will effect changes in the way the mechanical elements work. ECU Remapping optimizes parameters in those maps which effect an increase of performance and flexibility in revs over 2500 rpm.
The results we can get are:
Also having access to engine management details we can:
Main purpose of chip tuning is to adapt vehicle to individual requirements of the owner.
Let's see some main features:
ECO Tunning - what is that?
It’s a ECU (Engine Control Unit) software optimisation.
All manufacturers have to limit the power and mpg of their vehicles in order to adhere to the many different markets they face. From simple things such as differing fuel grades around the world to issues with marketing and affordability. So most of vehicles always underperform both for power and for fuel efficiency. Our economy tuning releases vehicles true potential for both Fuel economy and C02 reduction.
We simplify the whole issue with an expertly optimized economy tune on vehicle, delivering the optimum economy for the vehicle and providing a delightful increase to the power at the same time.
Savings are between 7,5% - 15% on trucks or buses and 5% - 15% on vans.
ECUs can be tuned to deliver considerable extra pulling power and torque. Vehicles will feel smoother and more powerful, mid-range acceleration and torque can be increased, reducing gear shifts and significantly increasing MPG return and driving pleasure.
Benefits and saving calculation
How much your company will save?
All vehicles can be tuned in our garage, but also we offer a complete mobile ECU remapping service, on site at a convenient place or depot.
