If you require any further information about our remapping service please contact us.
When we remap your ECU we are fine tuning the program that deals with engine performance and management. As well as producing greater power and torque we also deal with driveability problems at lower rev ranges such as flat spots, turbo lag and hesitation issues giving the engine more initial torque making a more responsive and enjoyable drive.
We will give you the most BHP that we can give you safely but as a guide you can expect to get an increase in the region of:
Non-turbo petrol or diesel – 10-15%
Turbo petrol – 20-30%
Turbo diesel – 20-40%
The plain and simple answer to this is no. We never use generic ECU remapping files. We will always make a custom map for your vehicle and we never sacrifice the reliability of your car for a few extra BHP's.
Vehicle manufactures have been striving to be able to detect external software changes made ECU's, and in recent months BMW and VAG in particular have had success in this area.

We are happy to undertake remapping of cars during the warranty period, solely at the customers own risk, in regards to warranty implications.
