ECU Re-Mapping probably sounds unbelievably complicated and whilst it is an extremely advanced technology, it is not a new thing anymore and as we move forward, remapping evolves more than ever before and take hudge part in all automotive industry and motor racing.
The key to understanding how remapping works, is to appreciate, that all manufacturers choose to limit the power and efficiency to the lowest common denominator of the markets they sell in and to comply with emission targets, cope with sub-standard fuels found in some countries, operate in areas with extreme environments and allow for some owners irregular service standards and intervals, so your car has literally been built to underperform both for power and for fuel efficiency.
All vehicles manufactured since 1999 are controlled by an on-board computer, which is known as the Engine Control Unit (ECU). The ECU controls many different engine functions such as ignition timing, air flow, fuelling, boost pressure, remove speed limiter, raise rpm limiters and etc. Within this computer a file stores the manufacturers settings that have been fixed to allow for build tolerances into their engines. Now with data taken from your individual vehicle using advanced tools to remap vehicles, so called "maps" can be adjusted to improve engine performance and get:
• Up to 35% more power & torque
• Up to 15% better fuel economy
• Smoother driving experience
• Enhanced throttle response
• Improved Acceleration/safer overtaking
• Lower your carbon footprint
• More torque to tow a vehicle or caravan
After remapping you’ll immediately see a massive improvement in both: the feel and drive-ability of your car along with significantly low fuel consumption. Your engine will feel more flexible, with a sharper throttle response and smoother, more progressive power delivery.
Engine ECU remapping improves engine performance without any need to change its components and give you more pleasure from driving thanks to increased power and torque. When we remap an ECU (Engine Control Unit) we are basically upgrading the program that deals with engine performance. As well as producing greater power and torque we also deal with fuel consumption, emissions and drivability problems at lower rev ranges such as flat spots and hesitation issues giving the engine more initial torque, making a more responsive and enjoyable drive.
Optidrive offers leading performance tuning and ECU remapping service for most vehicles. Remapping is fully custom written, this means we can account and adjust for your specific needs and vehicle modifications, including Injector tuning, Intercoolers, turbo and supercharger modifications, induction and exhaust systems, and other upgrades too.
