What is ECU Remapping?
The ECU is the engine control unit. This is the computerised system found in all cars built in the last 20 years or so. The ECU plays a crucial role in car manufacture today.
When cars are made the ECU is set to default settings to suit the mass market. This is so manufacturers can comply with different legislation around the world. As with a laptop computer the ECU in a car can be modified to change the settings so the car can perform better.
Modifying the setting on the ECU is known as ‘remapping’. The process of remapping involves overwriting the current default settings with new software which can improve the car's performance. AWM Auto Services are an authorised dealer of Elite Remap, the UK's premier chip tuning company. Check out their Facebook page here.
We offer economy remapping or tuning. The primary goal is to improve fuel economy by widening the power band which will make your vehicle more efficent.
We also offer performance tuning which enhances the power and performance of your vehicle by rewriting and updating the ECU software. This may involve altering timing, fuelling and turbo boost pressure. This effect is immediate from the moment you get back in your car to take it home.
DPF solutions tailored to your requirements also available.
At AWM Auto Services we have completed hundreds of ECU remaps on all makes and models. If you would like to find out more about this service, please give us a call and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
