There are two primary forms of ECU remapping. These are OBD remapping and KTAG remapping. The end result in both cases is that the ECU is reprogrammed to allow your vehicle to better reach its potential, but there are a few key differences. OBD remapping is the most common - and easiest - form of remapping. It involves plugging our specialist tools into the OBD (On-Board Diagnostics) port in your vehicle, and then installing software onto the ECU. For our highly experienced team, it is simple and safe, and usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour from start to finish.
The second of these - KTAG remapping - is where the vehicle’s ECU has to be physically removed from the vehicle, and then adapted. This is most commonly necessary in older vehicles where the ECU can no longer communicate effectively with modern technology. KTAG remapping is more time consuming, and must be carried out by trained time-served professionals like our Remap Kings team. We remove the ECU, then conduct the work in our fully equipped facilities to ensure there is no risk of damage to your vehicle, and return the ECU the following day with the remap installed. Due to the highly skilled and time-consuming nature of this work, the prices are higher than for OBD remaps.
