Frequently asked questions.

Can you re-map my car?

We can Re-Map most cars from about 1999.


Do I need to come to you?

We will come to you but if you can come to me then I can do the Re-Map with a discount.

How will it affect my warranty?

Your car dealer cannot determine a software modification with his diagnostic equipment. Since we modify the original program from each car, all engine characteristics and VIN numbers stay the same leaving the modifications undetectable.


Is re-mapping different from chipping?

No, it’s just an easier way of doing it.

The program that holds your cars Engine mapping is contained in an EPROM (Chip). When you "chip" a car you have to open the cars ECU, unplug or de-solder the EPROM, Read the program, modify it, program a new chip with this data then either place it in its socket or solder it back onto the circuit board. When you Re-Map an ECU, you Read the data from the EPROM (chip) by connecting through the cars diagnostic socket. Once it has been Read you can modify the file then overwrite the EPROM with the modified file. This then allows you to apply different maps where applicable and also restore the original data should you require it. The benefit obviously of this is that it means you have not changed any standard part of the car and therefore warranty is unaffected etc and insurance company’s cant see that the ECU has been physically tampered with.


What about insurance?

This is where we cannot tell you what to do. Basically the change in the engine map is extremely hard to diagnose, even with the right equipment to compare it with. Secondly to say something has been modified you have to compare it to the original and with only one map on the car what can you compare it against to prove it has been modified.

 

Will this reduce the life of my engine?

Depends on how you drive.

The power reserves of the engine are so large, that you don't have to expect more engine wear with normal driving. We optimise the settings of the engine without exceeding the limits of the reliability. If the car is driven normally there are little or no decreases of the lifetime! If the car is driven hard over prolonged periods then expect the life of your engine life to decrease..

What BHP and Torque increase can I expect on my car?

Each vehicle is different, trust us you will tell the difference.


How long does it take?

Most cars take on average 1-2 hours.


What if I am not happy with what you have done?

You will get the chance to have a test run, we dont expect you to pay without trying your vehicle if you're not happy we will install your old file back into the vehicle conditions apply.

 

What warranty do you give on your work?

Disclaimer.

Since we are not changing any engine components on your car therefore we have nothing to give a warranty on. 

WE DO NOT cover any engine part's whatsoever its YOUR responsibility to make sure your car is in good running order before the remap. However we will do our utmost to help anyone who has a problem, including returning the original file however this will incur a fitting fee of £60. We only use GENUINE TOOLS and no files off eBay are used. 



What's the likely effect on fuel consumption?

Due to the increased torque at low rpm you are able to shift earlier. The result is that you are driving with an average lower rpm and therefore getting more mpg, but if you drive the car hard you wont get the extra fuel saving for nothing…
