- Safer overtaking.
- An efficient and noticeably quieter engine.
- Greater fuel economy saving you money on fuel bills
- Custom made files (MAPS).
- Diagnostics and data logging before and after tuning.
Why get a car remap?
A car remap works by reprogramming the Engine Control Unit (ECU) which controls the ignition timing and imposes speed and rev limits on your car engine. These ‘safe’ limits are often put in place by car manufacturers who will set up a car below the threshold of the engine in order that the vehicle will not have any issues during the warranty period. It is also done in order that car manufacturers can sell cars which have the same engine but different horsepower which is achieved by tuning and remapping the ECU.
A car map is specific to each make and model of vehicle and the configuration can be adjusted to remove the restrictions previously imposed on the vehicle. The car remap re-programmes the ECU leading to better performance, and it can even be used to fine tune your car’s fuel economy, especially if you know at which speeds you spend the bulk of your time driving.
Speed limit removal
Mainly fitted to commercial vehicles, speed limiters are used to reduce speed and enhance fuel efficiency and safety for drivers of fleet vehicles such as BT or British Gas organisations.
These restrictions can cause dangerous situations whilst overtaking or accelerating under required load.
- ECU or software controlled restrictions.
- Body control unit adaptations
- Speed limiter device on foot pedal or within the dashboard.
- Achieved by remapping or adjust the map data to remove the limiter or restriction.
- Reset the limiter with a diagnostics tool.
- Remove limiter device.
