Richard is now back in the West Country with his own custom car workshop, living his dream of working on cars, full time. He has brought Black Art Customs SW into being and is looking to expand his portfolio of services in the very near future. At the moment he offers re-mapping, window tinting and alloy wheel powder coating.
Remapping a car – also known as ‘chipping’ – means adjusting the programming on a car’s Engine Control Unit (ECU) microchip to overwrite its factory settings. This allows your car to function at its full potential. Remapping the software and fine-tuning the engine can increase a car’s power and torque output, maximising its overall performance by as much as 35 per cent. All kinds of parameters, such as ignition timing, air/fuel ratio and turbocharging boost pressure, can be tweaked to change performance.
We strongly recommend that you only let a qualified specialist remap your car, otherwise you risk damaging the engine. The procedure takes around two hours and, if done properly, you should notice an improvement in performance almost immediately. At the moment Black Art Customs SW can remap your ECU from £200, and provide a mobile service enabling them to come to you.
Window tinting is available and has all kinds of benefits to enjoying driving your car. Tinting can help protect you from UV rays, enable you to see the road better and keep you cool even in the heat of summer, and yet these aren't the only ways it will keep you safe. It can also protect you from shattered glass during an accident.
