Are you looking to get ECU remapping done on your engine?
Looking for ECU remapping to increase your car’s performance? You’ve come to the right place! At Just Autos, our speciality is ECU remapping. Our workshop is fully outfitted with high-end equipment and tools that will allow us to professionally remap your ECU.
What is ECU remapping? An ECU (Engine Control Unit) is the brain of your internal combustion engine, which reads a range of data from different sensors that are hooked into the engine. This data is then fed into a range of computerised tables which calculate the vehicle’s base air and fuel ratio, boost levels and much more.
By constantly monitoring the air and throttle input, the intake, coolant temperatures and many other inputs, the ECU will adjust to get the performance results it’s programmed to.
ECU remapping is, simply put, adjusting these base table parameters to get your desired results. If that is more power, better fuel economy or engine efficiency, ECU remapping is the way to achieve this. Basic ECU remapping can be done with no other modifications, because when manufacturers set up their ECUs, they account for a huge amount of variation in the operating environment.
A common reason for there being untapped power and performance in stock diesel engines is that manufacturers de-tune the engine to less than what they’re capable of for the sake of longevity. They apply factory standard settings to suit a variety of environments and factors.
Our professional ECU remapping experts, combined with their suite of relevant hardware and software, means that Just Autos can tune your vehicle to almost any parameters you need. We choose to modify at the point of the ECU as it allows unrestricted access to additional ECU parameters to further enhance your vehicle’s performance, rather than downstream chip-tuning which can have its own issues.
Vehicles which are not naturally aspirated, or which are turbo-charged or super-charged, are ideal to provide ECU remapping for. This is because the larger and more powerful engines provide the greatest difference when they receive performance enhancements. Naturally aspirated, small engines may only receive minimal performance increases.
There are a number of benefits to ECU remapping. Vehicle manufacturers do not sell their cars already tuned because they err on the side of safety: not everyone will take good care of their car or even supply their car with the right fuel or lubricants, so vehicle manufacturers created a ‘one-size-fits-all’ style of motor, in that they are generally prepared for all types of owners and environments.
A custom ECU remap will alter your car’s performance, depending on what you’re looking to improve. Some of the benefits of ECU remapping include:
For the most part, diesel engines are worker engines. They are great for towing trailers and caravans; perfect to go off road with; and they are ideal for transporting large loads. A hard-working engine like a diesel engine needs a job! However, factory ECU settings often see these engines struggle in one performance area or another.
You may notice poor acceleration or throttle response, that your vehicle struggles under a load or when towing, or even that ‘city driving’ throws any fuel economy you had out the window. With common rail diesel performance tuning, it is possible to remove these issues. You can fine tune your engine to be as rugged and powerful as it was meant to!
Thinking of getting ECU remapping done? Enhancing your vehicle’s performance with an ECU remap should be carefully considered. Be sure to consider the type of vehicle you have, as well as the engine; does it tow?; is it turbo-charged? Also, consider what you want from the ECU remapping. Are you looking to increase your fuel economy or your vehicle’s overall efficiency? Are you looking for more torque or power? Do you need your vehicle to be able to tow more? All of these elements come in to play when we provide you with custom ECU remapping.
