Remapping. Chip tuning. What?
I don't profess to be a motoring aficionado. If I get in the car and it starts first time, I'm happy.
Or I was until I met Aussie and self-confessed 'petrol head', Al Hunter from Cambridge remapping business, Mobile Remaps. Within weeks my big old estate was faster, more powerful, and best of all, economical. So how did he do it?
Through ECU (Engine Control Unit) remapping, which is also known as chip tuning.
Al explains more...
“Basically, your vehicle has a computer that controls the way it behaves. This computer uses maps to control your car's turbo, fuel injectors, ignition coils, exhaust gas recirculation valve and various other sensors and devices.
“A remap is an optimised file that contains modified maps. It is uploaded into a vehicle's engine ECU in order to improve a variety of factors – power, torque, response and fuel economy.”
How will you benefit?
“You and your vehicle can reap a number of benefits from chip tuning,” Al Hunter from Mobile Remaps in Cambridge continues. “Your car will feel more responsive, and because its performance has been optimised, you will enjoy a smoother delivery of power, making for a better driving experience. You will also see improved acceleration and fuel consumption!”
Turbo charged petrol cars will see up to 20% more power and 25% more mid-range torque. Turbo charged diesel cars can expect to see up to 30% more power and torque. Non turbo petrol cars will enjoy enhanced throttle response and up to 10% more power.
“It doesn't matter whether you own a supercar or family estate; with remapping, we can customise your vehicle's computer to behave in the way you want, whether that's to increase power and torque, or improve your fuel economy,” says Al from Mobile Remaps.
“In the past 25 years, our file writers have remapped literally thousands of vehicles, which include cars, vans, taxis – even motorhomes! We perform a free diagnostic test before and after the process to make sure that your car is healthy and you see the results you want.”
