Are you having trouble with your car’s engine control unit? At Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical, we specialise in ECU remapping. The ECU will store all the information from all the car’s sensors and driver inputs to define operating parameters for the engine. Over time, your car’s performance may begin to weaken. Hence, by utilising ECU remapping, we can tweak the parameters of your car’s factory settings and optimise the performance or economy of your vehicle depending on your desired output.
How Is ECU Remapping Performed?
ECU remapping will rewrite the ‘maps’ available in your vehicle. Basically, this ‘map’ refers to the car’s computer, which stores and accesses all information regarding fuel, boost, injection timing, and more. Remapping a vehicle will change the manufacturer’s default settings and software on the ECU – replacing it with new software that can be customised to suit the owner’s requirements. Once a vehicle is remapped, the old ECU is overwritten when the new customised software is plugged into the car’s OBD port.
The Benefits Of ECU Remapping
There are many benefits associated with ECU remapping. This includes:
- A dramatic improvement for engine torque and power
- Better throttle response
- Less turbo lag
- Wider and more accessible torque curve
- A more exciting car to enjoy
Removing unnecessary engine restrictions can drastically improve the performance of your car. Hence, if this is something you are interested in, get in touch with our experts at Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical today.
ECU Remapping Features
With ECU remapping, our team can provide you with a range of extra features for your vehicle. This includes:
Speed Limiter Removal
By adjusting the ECU data and utilising remapping, we can successfully remove the speed limiter from almost all vehicles.
REV Limit Adjustment
RPM limiters are set into place to protect the engine from excessive speeds. However, in some cars, these limiters are set very low. Therefore, we can safely increase these limits to expand the useable RPM range of the engine.
Star/stop technology is prominent in most vehicles nowadays. Some people love this feature, while others don’t. If you don’t want start/stop technology in your car, we can offer a start/stop disable service. In addition, we will change the coding inside the ECU to deactivate the system, giving you full control of the engine.
Launch control is designed to help the driver generate a quick launch from a standstill. If you’re having launch control issues and want to upgrade your system with ECU remapping, then get in touch with our experts at Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical today.
Should I Remap My Car?
It is important to note that not all cars can be remapped. Therefore, it is best to check with an automotive professional before planning any car modifications. However, if you want to get the most out of your vehicle, then a performance remap may be the answer. The process has numerous benefits.
