ECU tuning is for vehicle owners who want more power from their vehicles, or fleet owners who would like savings on their fleet operating costs.
owners who feel they want more. They want to go faster, quicker and enjoy the thrills
of the ride.
Better throttle response
Smoother power delivery
Improved fuel economy
Fleet owners are always looking for ways to reduce operating costs and the best ways we have found is to tune the vehicle for economy and limit the engine RPM to an area where you still achieve the power but are not overworking the engine, wasting fuel.
The improved economy in turbo diesel engines.
Reworking the torque limits on the engine at lower RPM you benefit from additional performance and improved economy.
Limiting the higher RPM the drivers will encourage to shift up through the gears and keep the engine running in its optimal performance window.
This is a very popular choice with large fleet owners where the extra mpg improvement counts on operating costs.
To achieve any of the above, we will first download the current ECU maps from the processing chip of the vehicle’s computer. Adjust various parameters within the map such as fuel pressure, boost pressure (on turbocharged applications) ignition advance, torque values, and throttle pedal control amongst others to release the true performance from the engine. In doing this we do not change any hardware, but only modify the operating parameters in the ECU’s maps. Remapping will not only improve the engine’s power and torque figures, but it will also sharpen the throttle response and widen the power-band. This will make the power delivery a lot more linear and in turn, will make the vehicle feel a lot lively to drive. The other benefit of remapping will be a reduction in fuel consumption. With the extra torque, you should see a fuel-saving, as with the extra power it is easier to maintain cruise speeds. You will be able to drive in a higher gear at a slower speed as well as helping significantly when fully laden, towing.
The importance of using genuine filters is to protect you from unwanted expenses on your vehicle or equipment. In my view, the image says it all. Even though genuine parts are slightly more expensive than aftermarket copies it is safer. At the end of the day you will save money in protecting your components. In…
If you are driving a modern turbocharged vehicle there is a lot that is going on under that hood that needs checking hence the reason for regular interval services. Now here we are only going to talk about the air induction system. Whilst we all feel our vehicles are running fine, by this I mean…
