One of the most controversial topics in the automotive world…
What is ECU Remapping / ECU Tuning?
An ECU Remap is a process of changing calibration & limiters found in a engine ECU with the aim of changing engine performance characteristics, usually going for more power and torque. This can be achieved through different strategies, however the overall take away is that for more power we will be using more fuel.
A big selling point for Remaps is that they are safe non-invasive, non-destructive and provide better fuel efficiency and more power from the same hardware. The lows of Physics don’t agree on this topic. There is no such thing as a “free” lunch and sooner or later there will be trade offs.
Things to consider before a ECU Remap
- Quality of remap
- Quantity of power increase
- Vehicle usage
- Vehicle maintenance
- Who is able to repair the vehicle is something goes wrong
