ECU remaps are amongst the most popular upgrades for your 4WD experience in todays market and rightfully so, if done right, they pack a powerful punch with a range of benefits for your 4WD which will have you wondering why you have not done it sooner.
ECU remapping (Engine Control Unit) is when your original 4WD’s computer software file is replaced. This vehicle remap replaces the standard manufacturers software in the ECU, overwriting it with new updated software which can be programmed to optimize your 4WDs overall performance.
We believe with the right tune and qualified technician, an ECU remap will take your 4WD to the next level, and here’s why:
- Increase Power and Torque
When you replace the default computer software with a fully customisable ECU remap file you remove the limitations which were set by the vehicle’s manufacturer. Our qualified tuner adjusts the parameters with new levels which suit your driving needs. Now you might be wondering how much increase can you expect? Every car is different, and therefore the results will be different. A power increase between 25 to 35% is quite common, however we do see some vehicles with huge increases between 40-60%.
- Better Fuel Efficiency
With the correct tuning the engine can achieve more power with less throttle, so your overall fuel economy could improve. Perfect for stretching that fuel of tank out!
- Improved Overall Performance
With an ECU remap your 4WD drivability will improve significantly on all aspects from accelerating, cruising, towing, braking and all off-road driving.
- Tailored and Customised to your 4WD needs
We all know you didn’t buy a 4WD just to do one thing… our qualified tuner will customise your tune to suit your exact needs for all your on/off-road driving.
Something to consider before you opt for a cheap tune.. Unfortunately, like any updates on your mobile phone, not all of them improve it. ECU remapping also works this way. Not every person who can offer you an ECU remap will necessarily up-date your files for the better. That being said, it is extremely important you have someone with experience and the right equipment to carry out your ECU remapping.
Our qualified technicians only use the best equipment including the latest Dyno Dynamics 4WD Dyno and Alientech tuning equipment and have extensive training to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
