Remapping is a relatively new concept. Many contemporary vehicles consist of an ECU (or Engine Control Unit) which a small computer regulating exactly how the engine works. Vehicle makers de-tune the engine by setting the software application on the ECU to default prior to sending the car out. This is done due to the manufacturers having to offer their cars all over the world and this means that the software settings on the ECU need to take into account various climates, laws & limitations and differing quality of fuels. Vehicle remapping is basically the modification/replacement of the make’s default software on a cars ECU.
How does remapping work?
A vehicle remap replaces default software application on the ECU, overwriting it with brand-new software which can be programmed to optimize the vehicles overall efficiency. This is referred to as automobile remapping since the ECU is basically a program that controls how the engine works. When your automobile is remapped, the tuned software is connected into your cars serial port (or OBD port) which then overwrites the engine map with the new version to improve engine performance. The capability to flash straight through the OBD has actually brought the tuning niche on leaps and bounds, with consistent development on the engine now being much quicker through the flash process, it has enabled Celtic Tuning to establish a few of the very best software application in the world.
Exactly what is Chip Tuning?
Chip tuning is the initial definition of exactly what modern day ECU Remapping has actually ended up being. Chip tuning requires the removal of the Eprom from the ECU and the software application is programmed to the chip on the bench. The software inside the chip is exactly what is referred to as remapping, i.e. changing the basic software application within a chip. Chip tuning or chipping has ended up being less and less common in the market place as, considering that 1996, OBD remapping has taken its place making it possible for remapping to be done through the OBD (on-board diagnostics) port.
We deal with all ages of ECU from the early EDC’s needing chip tuning right the method through to contemporary MEDC17 locked tricore processor ECU’s with tuner defense. A Celtic Tuning superchip from Turbo Dynamics can offer you with all phases of upgrade from a standard ECU Remap right approximately full engine conversions.
Exactly what are the effects of ECU remapping?
Many people state that ECU remapping does not impact fuel use, however this is not technically real. Because of the process involved in ECU remapping, more fuel is going to be eaten in order to produce the boost in power. If the vehicle is driven in an enthusiastic way after the remap has been accomplished then the fuel economy will not increase (and in many cases might reduce). If, however, the driver modifies their driving style to maximize the improved power and torque throughout the rev array then fuel economy can be enhanced. An example of this could be that the improvement in torque produced by the engine after remapping implies the driver no more has to drop down an equipment to preserve speed on an incline or may not have to change gear as often in traffic. All of these little things add up to an improvement in fuel economy.
Why choose automobile remapping?
There are numerous needs to pick vehicle remapping. Firstly, you will discover that your engine responds better when the accelerator is pressed. The general torque and power will be noticeably increased. Power delivery will be smoother making for a much safer driving experience, which in turn likewise makes it simpler and safer to surpass. During normal driving you will discover that your MPG is better which not only decreases the cost of fuel that you will need to pay, but it likewise decreases your carbon foot print. Throttle response will be improved and the rev range will be boosted.
