Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. WHAT IS ECU REMAPPING?

ECU Remapping refers to changing or modifying an erasable programmable read only memory / data / files in an automobile's or other vehicle's electronic control unit (ECU) to achieve superior performance, whether it be more power, cleaner emissions, or better Fuel efficiency. This makes use of the engine manufacturer to generally use a conservative electronic control unit map to allow for individual engine variations as well as infrequent servicing and poor-quality fuel.

Q2. WHAT DO YOU DO EXACTLY ?

We work on ECU's of vehicle's, where we modify stock files of your ECU. Our re-mapping process  provide you with superior Power, Torque, Fuel Efficiency keeping in mind the safety of your vehicle and it's components.
 
Extra power will also result in fewer gear changes. Manufacturers have to build in a tolerance for the parts in the engine, to manage the effect of wear and tear, production variations, and to ensure their warranty claims during their warranty period normally 3 years.
 
Most race and rally engines are pushed for every last bhp, and thus they more common to fail, whilst normal car / bike / lorry engines are limited back, well away from probability of multiple failures. Each individual engine is different as in how much it can be pushed in a remap.

Q3. IS IT SAFE FOR MY VEHICLE?

We provide customized remaps with aim to use 100% potential of a vehicle keeping in mind the safe limits meaning not pushing the limits defined by manufacturers for parts / components of a vehicle to handle stress safely, we never get close the limits of component failure, which is the golden rule followed by all good quality tuners all over the world.We remap your vehicle without suggesting you to change your daily driving style. All the good tuners have developed vehicle gains similar to each other.

Warning : Tuners who claim significantly more, it’s either lies hoping that the average customer wouldn’t be able to tell the difference, or the engine is being pushed too hard and will quickly become unreliable or definetly in longer run.

Q4. WHAT IS BETTER ECU REMAP OR TUNING BOX ?

We do not fit add-on tuning boxes, which normally just interfere with engine management signals to trick the injectors into adding more fuel. Our service is a custom re-map of your ECU, specifically for your vehicle. These differ from how a remap works. A tuning box relies on the principal of more diesel fuel = more diesel power. That theory is correct and boxes do increase power, but they can’t control the amount of black smoke (maximum permissible visible smoke limit) coming out the exhaust.
 
Too much smoke is undesirable, both environmentally and visually. More importantly, the black smoke is un-burnt diesel fuel attached to combustion chamber, with deposits exiting straight out the exhaust pipe, thus wasting fuel which hasn’t had any effect on power gain. The results are raised emissions, a higher thermal load on the engine (i.e. exhaust temperature) and frequently defects such as "bucking" are often the result. It should be clear what this means for your engine.”
 
In a modern engine there are complex engine control systems that cooperate with each other to make everything work perfectly. A diesel box manipulates some signals in order to either increase the injection time or fuel pressure. Unfortunately this manipulation is done entirely without the engine control system’s knowledge. This means that a diesel box tricks the engine control system of the vehicle and the consequence is that a large amount of values and control data will be incorrect, resulting in:
 
The on board trip computer shows improved fuel consumption, but the real amount left in the tank is less, as fuel is being injected without any of the sensors detecting the additional amount entering the cylinder.
The anti skid program (ESP) is disturbed because of incorrect torque value
No loose boxes and wiring flexes in the engine compartment
The automatic gearboxes get incorrect torque value
Torque reduction when shifting gear (for comfort and durability) is not retained
The regeneration (emptying) of particle filter will not be optimal
The calculation of exhaust temperature is disturbed
The calculation of service interval is disturbed
The diagnostic system is disturbed

Q5. WHY DO I NEED IT ? or HOW DOES IT BENEFIT MY VEHICLE ? or WHAT IS THE REQUIREMENT OF ECU REMAP ?

If you want to tune your diesel vehicle and still keep the vehicles safety and durability functions for the engine/transmission/ESP intact, the only way to tune a diesel vehicle is to make changes in the existing control system of the engine. 
That is exactly what we offer with a remap. Our tuning process has total control over all parameters at any moment, and we don’t disturb the safety functions of the car, by deceiving the system.
Apart from an obvious power, torque and fuel economy benefits you get the following advantages with a remap:
The Remap is installed within the hour, normally without lifting the bonnet
Nothing needs to be connected to the vehicle after tuning to get the benefits
No loose boxes and wiring flexes in the engine compartment
Torque comes soft and smooth
Torque is adjusted/limited on lower gears (to avoid damage on the transmission)
Boost pressure and air flow is optimised
The original settings can be reinstalled if required
On board computer shows correct fuel consumption
Anti skid program (ESP) function is fully retained
Torque reduction when shifting gear (for comfort and durability) is retained
Regeneration (emptying) of diesel particle filter (DPF) is retained optimal
Correct calculation of exhaust temperature
Correct calculation of service interval
The diagnostic system is retained
No enlarged NOx, HC, CO, CO2, Soot emissions compared with original when going for MOT and servicing

Q6. DO I NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MY FUEL CONSUMPTION ?

We can help you increase your fuel economy by up to 20 % in Turbocharged Petrol / Diesel engine, and from 5-12% in naturally aspirated petrol engines.

Q7. WHY DON’T MANUFACTURERS DO IT?

Engine mapping is directly proportional to sales, marketing and profit of vehicle manufacturers.  Manufacturers generally sell one vehicle that covers various markets and demographic locations, with different tax and emissions regulations, different climates with extremes of heat, cold, humidity, different fuel quantities, different operating altitudes, etc. All of these factors into consideration and make substantial compromises in the vehicles operation. So the vehicle sold to customer is underpowered and far away from its true potential.
 
The Economy Tune remap service specifically focuses on providing your vehicle with more power in the low-to-mid rev ranges. This increased torque at lower rev ranges will in turn ensure that less gear changes are required which will increase your Km/Litre at the end of the day. Fuel savings of up to 30% can be achieved. Manufactures also build in tolerances to account for people who may not have their vehicles serviced in accordance with the recommended service period. A way of doing this is to limit the power available through settings in the ECU. Additionally your vehicle will be restricted to take into consideration sub-standard fuels which we no longer have in India.
 
During the development of an automobile the manufacturers have to, in many respects, find compromises in terms of fuel efficiency, horsepower output, drivability and these days, the most important issue, exhaust emissions. Factors like fuel quality, ambient temperature, air quality, maintenance, operational circumstances etc. as well as financial aspects i.e., insurance classifications, have to be taken under consideration. The manufacturers have to assure operational reliability for the final product worldwide, which means, that in most cases the actual engine potential is not reached.
In a Stock Car, the ignition, injection, boost e.t.c. patterns programmed, are on the safe side or too underpowered.
 
ECU remapping is an engine tuning service which enables some of the restrictions put on a vehicle by the vehicle manufacturer to be lifted. This is to take into consideration sub-standard fuels and the possibility that vehicles may not be serviced on a regular basis and in accordance with the manufacturers recommended guidelines. ECU remapping unblocks some of these restrictions so that the vehicle being remapped can perform as was originally designed. More power, greater response and lower fuel consumption are some of the advantages that a remap will offer. What’s more, remapping a vehicle has no negative effect on exhaust emissions or the life of an engine.
 
CO2 emissions will decrease after a remap in a diesel engine:
 
Vehicle CO2 emissions are linked to how much fuel your vehicle uses.  For every litre of fuel your vehicle burns, 2.63 kg of CO2 are released into the atmosphere. This is not dependent on how you drive or indeed what you drive, but how much fuel your vehicle consumes. Indeed, with our remap, we can help you to reduce your vehicle CO2 emissions by ensuring your vehicle uses less fuel.

Q8.  DOES IT AFFECT THE MANUFACTURES GUARANTEE ?

It is invisible to service station while carrying on with their standard procedures, manufacturers won't be able to detect the changes.
