Car ECU remapping and how did we start.
This is were it all started for us. Being a professional auto technician for over 15 years.
We started tuning cars when I was an apprentice started with a MK2 Volkswagen Golf running a 2.0 8v MK3 Volkswagen Golf GTI engine, lightened and balanced bottom end, with a Stage 3 rallye head all ported and polished, with Newman Race Cams fitted and a set of Weber Twin 40’s. We also had a Mazda RX7 with a highly tuned 12A engine.
We first started car tuning. Using OMEX that I installed, making looms up from scratch. Then live car tuning on the dyno. We also became IMI Qualified in 2016 in vehicle tuning. As well certified in Basic and Advance Tuning techniques
For ECU remapping cars we have a selection of tools to read and write ECU’s with; KESS, KTAG, ByteShooter, PCM Flash, Dimsport New Genius and Autotuner. We use these in different ways 1 does it via OBD, 1 does it via BDM and BOOT and 1 does it both in a different way to the other 2. Check our Tools page for more information.
We have carried out ECU remapping on cars from a little 1.0 Ford Fiesta EcoBoost to 6.3 Mercedes Benz C63 AMG. Our car tuning is reliable and powerful. With great aftercare and knowledge in tuning means you get the best service at a great price. Have a look at the BLOG PAGE or our Facebook Page
The time taken to complete the car ECU remapping process will vary depending on the vehicle. In most cases the process can be done in one to two hours. We store the original map file on our server and can restore your ECU to its original format at any time.
We pride ourselves in being both Hampshire and Basingtokes No1 ECU remapping company
When car tuning we make certain changes in the map data in these areas:
- Injection Quantity
- Injection Duration
- Injection Pressure
- Turbo Boost Pressure
- Spark Advance
- Pedal Maps and Torque Limiters
Tuning cars is the most popular service we do. We can tune 95% of the cars and SUV's on the road. We have 4 simple options for you to choose:
A popular choice with rising fuel prices. We are able to tune the car ECU data to improve fuel efficiency. The increase in torque, allows less gear changes and accelerator pedal movement thus resulting in improved MPG and drivability.
Stage 1 Car Tuning
Our most popular option. Designed for a standard and unmodified vehicle with no hardware upgrades. A Stage 1 Car Tuning increases power and torque while also improving fuel efficiency. Removes flat spots and gives a more responsive drive without compromising reliability.
Stage 2 Car Tuning
Bigger increase in power and torque than a Stage 1 Car Tune. Efficiency will still improve but not as dramatically as a Stage 1 Tune. Often requires hardware upgrades before a Stage 2 Car Tune can be chosen. Removes flat spots and gives a more responsive drive without compromising reliability.
Stage 3 and beyond
Up-rated hardware will be required, the numerous hardware additions require a fully bespoke car tuning to becarried out on our rolling road where parameters need to monitored in a safe and reliable way. There are exceptions to this, where Stage 3 and above development has already been proven out on your specific vehicle. Please contact us with your spec list and we can provide a custom quote and offer advice on the required hardware upgrades.
