WHAT IS ECU REMAPPING?
Our trained & IMI-Certified Tuning Technician begins the process of ECU REMAPPING by reading the vehicle’s standard tuning map from the ECU’s processing chip. Various parameters are then adjusted (remapped) within the ECU’s software such as throttle pedal control, ignition advance, fuel pressure, boost pressure (on turbocharged applications), amongst others, to improve the engine’s performance, driveability and fuel economy.
When setting the tuning initially, manufacturers take into consideration a range of potential driving conditions, atmospheric effects and the regions in which the model will be sold and as a result the tuning is a compromise. Our tuning technician can remap your vehicle’s engine software to safely gain more power and torque to give improved driveability and throttle response with the potential bonus of enhanced fuel economy, especially on diesel engines.
OBD & CHIP TUNING
With remapping or tuning, there are three phrases which often used interchangeably. These are: ‘OBD TUNING’, ‘CHIP TUNING’ and ‘ECU REMAPPING’. OBD stands for On Board Diagnostics, a method of analysing a vehicle’s ECU faults by plugging into the standardised OBD port. Any reference to OBD remapping is simply engine tuning via the car’s OBD port.
‘CHIP TUNING’ is simply remapping by another name and involves the physical removal of the program chip from the main ECU in the vehicle and either re-programming or replacement with a new chip carrying a modified map. Technology developments mean that chip tuning is rarer now, but it’s still the only way to programme certain vehicles. Nowadays most remaps are carried out via the diagnostic OBD2 Socket, or direct into the ECU using special adaptors on the bench.
Our performance maps have been developed to work on standard vehicles, maintaining manufacturer levels of reliability and original service intervals. The maps we use at Eporsch are specially designed for high power & performance applications.
Designed to unleash the full potential of your engine, Eporsch Performance Remaps can be installed in both petrol and diesel vehicles – enjoy the ride!
