Remapping, also known as chip tuning, is the process of accessing the engine’s control unit (ECU) to rewrite the software. Rewriting the software modifies the way a car behaves and enables it to go past the limits that the manufacturer set it at. Offering your vehicle increased power, performance and fuel economy.

What Are The Benefits?

Having a remap isn’t necessarily for performance benefits. The nature of the remap enables your car to be significantly more economical and environmental.
Remapping your vehicle will offer an increase in torque and horsepower. Alongside this the remap will also enable the throttle to be much more responsive, resulting in a more efficient drive.
A remap is much better for the economy than you may think. From treating your car to a remap you will notice you will have better miles per gallon. As the remap enables the vehicle to drive more smoothly, the car won’t have to use as much fuel.
Should you not like the effects of the remap or you’re looking to restore your car to the manufacturer’s settings for selling purposes then it can be reversible. A copy of the original file is kept. Reversing the remap will remove all upgrades to the car’s power and performance.
Lower CO2 Emissions
As the engine becomes more energy and fuel efficient, it will result in a decrease in CO2 emissions. With better miles per gallon, it will mean that you won’t burn as much fuel and therefore release fewer greenhouse gases.
Different Stages Of A Remap
involves the basics of a remap, offering increased power, performance and throttle response.
Stage 2 Tunes the ECU after the intake and exhaust parts have been installed.
Used for off-road and competition use. Forced induction is installed in the car, enabling it to have a stronger performance all-round.
Involves the forging of the engine. As a result of this stage, the engine will be significantly stronger and have fewer issues.
