Tuning FAQ





How will the remap affect my warranty?

The modification to the map is undetectable by main dealer diagnostic equipment and therefore unless you tell them that it has been done.

However on vehicles where it is not possible to communicate with the ECU through the OBD port it will be necesary to open the ECU and remap by either soldering the chip or via direct connection to the ECU board, this may void your ca'rs warranty.

How will the remap affect my fuel consumption?

Depending on what your requirements are and your driving style depends on what your fuel economy will be.
If you go for an out right maximum power output and drive it as so, you can expect to see it decrease as it would without the map. If you get the map to increase torque low down and drive conservatively then it is likely that fuel economy will increase.

How will the remap affect the longevity of my engine?

The remap will obviously increase the power output of your vehicle and depending on how you drive depends on how reliable it is for you. If you drive it harder then naturally you can expect to decrease the life of your engine, this would anyway be the same for an unmapped car driven in the same manner. The remap does not in any way compromise the engine, the remap does not affect the longevity, only your driving style.

Is remapping better then chipping?

It is a matter of different thechniqes, OBD remapping is the modern technique, it reads and writes your ECU via the OBD port.. Chipping your car requires opening of the ECU and installing a preprogrammed chip.

Why is re-mapping a better option than a plug in Diesel tuning box?

A tuning box returns modified sensor signals to the ECU. The ECU interprets these modified signals as if there is insuffient fuel entering the engine resulting in additional fuel being injected to gain the increase in performance.

Although they can be rendered invisible by their total removal, they do often leave a trail of errors idendified by diagnostic tools due to the higher emissions, higher engine temperature and poor running of the engne.

Consider this option if there is no alternative to a full remap and remember that a full remap directly effects the ECU data and takes into account fuel, turbo, torque and limiters throughout the RPM/Load range of the engine.

What if I want to sell my car?

If you wish to sell the car with the map on then no problem, if you wish to have it reversed back to standard after a period of time then again no problem, we charge £25 to reverse the map back to standard.

What about my insurance?

This is up to you. We have to advise that you inform your insurance companies that the remap has been carried out but as there is no way for them to read this map, it is up to you what you do. It is your responsibility.

What warranty do you give?

The changes we carry out apply only to the software in the ECU therefore we will do our outmost to correct any issues relating to the software and ECU only.
