ECU TUNING is when we take a read from the ECU’s processing chip of the vehicles standard tuning map. We then adjust various parameters within the map such as fuel pressure, boost pressure (on turbocharged applications) ignition advance and throttle pedal control, amongst others to release the true performance from the engine.
When a manufacturer develops a new vehicle they take into consideration all driving conditions and regions in which they intend to sell this model, in other words the tuning is a compromise. We rewrite or remap the vehicles engine software to safely gain more power and torque. This gives improved drive-ability and the added bonus of enhanced fuel economy on diesel engines.
Here at Advanced Tuning & Performance Tuning, we have a very advanced SOLUTION FOR EGR. The valves can become clogged with carbon deposits, causing them to fail or stick, thereby causing error codes and the vehicle not to run correctly. Our software solution to disable the EGR valve is a simple and effective method of improving the efficiency of your engine.
Our EGR closed or banking solution and reprogramming of the engine management ECU results in lower engine temperatures, improved throttle response and economy and also can lengthen engine life by reducing oil contamination and carbon deposits.
Our ECONOMY REMAPPING works by improving the efficiency and power of the engine to make the engine work less hard, in any given situation. Redcued throttle load and the ability to be in higher gears sooner and for longer results in marked fuel efficiency gains.
Customers will see FUEL IMPROVEMENTS of typically 8-10% on most diesel vehicles, often more when opting for our Advanced Tuning & Performance Economy remap. Great for fleets too where the savings really count.
CHIP TUNING is simply remapping by another name, but involves the physical removal of the program chip from the main ECU in the vehicle and either re-programming or replacement with a new chip modified with a Advanced Tuning & Performance remap. Technology developments mean that Chip Tuning is rarer now, but is still the only way to programme certain vehicles. Nowadays most remaps are carried out via the diagnostic OBD2 Socket, or direct into the ECU using special adaptors on the bench.
There are three phrases which often used interchangeably. These are: ‘OBD TUNING’, ‘Chip Tuning’ and ‘ECU Remapping’. OBD stands for On Board Diagnostic. To make sense of this the word port is important because without the port, on board diagnostics would not actually exist; just as it didn’t exist in the 1980’s. Any reference to OBD remapping is simply just engine tuning, or engine remapping completed via the use of the car’s obd port.
Our PERFORMANCE REMAP SOFTWARE is developed to work on a standard vehicle maintaining manufacturer levels of reliability and original service intervals. Our Advanced Tuning & Performance Power calibration is specially designed for High Power & Ultimate Performance.
Designed to fully unleash the full potential of your engine, Advanced Tuning & Performance Power tune can be installed on both petrol and diesel vehicles – enjoy the ride!
