A vehicle's engine control unit (ECU) is the computer that controls how the engine works. However, the manufacturer’s default settings (or maps) are not necessarily the best they could be as they are forced to consider different laws, such as emissions standards, climates, fuel quality etc. in all of the countries that their vehicles are sold in. Car makers are also known to limit the performance of their cars through the ECU so they can release faster models at a later date, with just a few software changes and a higher price.
By overwriting the ECU’s default settings with new settings which are programmed to enhance the car’s overall performance. It usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour. You’ll witness an immediate improvement in the speed and power of your car.
The engine will also be more responsive, so it will be easier to tow a caravan, overtake and you might also find that you don’t have to change gear as frequently, meaning you’ll get more miles to the gallon… what’s not to like about that!
Searching for remap
Be advised that in the unlikely event that your dealer ‘detects’ our remap, this may invalidate your manufacturer’s warranty.
You are legally obliged to tell your current or prospective insurer of any and all modifications made to your vehicle.
Be aware that if your vehicle is purchased through a finance plan, such as Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Hire Purchase (HP), that you are the ‘keeper’ and not the ‘owner’ of said vehicle. You are therefore contractually obliged to contact your lender and obtain written permission from them for any non-standard modifications.
Please remember that every vehicle is unique and manufacturers will sometimes put different ECUs into the same car and many vehicles have unusual configurations or modifications which are only apparent when reading the ECU. As such, we recommend that you discuss the potential gains and tuning options available directly with our engineer.
Remap Kings tuning database is constantly being refined, amended, updated and expanded. Remap Kings is confident that its data is amongst the most comprehensive ECU tuning and remapping data currently available anywhere in the world.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure the data in above table is up-to-date and accurate, it should only be used as a guide. It is possible that the economy and performance gains available are in excess of those stated above, conversely actual gains may be less than the current data suggests.
