Benefits of Chip Tuning

Generally, any car equipped with an engine management system can be tuned, which includes both petrol and diesel engines.

However, chiptuning produces best results on turbocharged or supercharged engines. Raising the turbocharger or supercharger boost pressure, allows for much higher gains in power to be achieved, when combined with the correct ignition timing and fueling adjustments. Normally aspirated (non-turbo) engines will only gain a significant improvement in power if the manufacturer also offers the same engine in a significantly detuned state by ECU software alone. .

With a remapped car you can expect:
  • An engine that responds more eagerly to your right foot
  • Smoother power delivery making town driving much easier with fewer gear changes
  • Improved acceleration for safer overtaking

Chip Tuning

Chip Tuning is a safe way to increase the performance of your vehicle. Modern cars are equipped with engine control unit ECU (engine control unit), which affects the quantity of injected fuel and control ignition, depending on engine operating state.

Car manufacturers are forced to compile these programs according to certain criteria and with significant reserves.

In other words, a car that meets the production line, it must also function well in extremely warm in extremely cold climates. It is a serial program data sufficiently broad and take into account a wide range of other aspects (such as low fuel, etc.).

Consequently, the engine of your vehicle used for approx. 60-70% of its possibilities. This fact, however, can be easily and safely changed by adjusting the data stored in the memory control unit, called Chip.

This was done with early engine computers in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, the term chip tuning can be misleading, as people will often use it to describe ECU Prpgramming that does not involve swapping the chip.

As technology advanced, so did the electronics that go into cars. The engine control unit in a modern automobile, together with advanced engine technology, makes it possible to control many aspects of the engine's operation, such as spark timing and fuel injection. The engine control unit may also control electronic throttle control (drive-by-wire), poppet valve timing, boost control (in turbocharged engines), Anti-lock braking system, the automatic transmission, speed governor (if equipped), and the Electronic Stability Control system.

Performance gains are realized by adjusting the ignition timing advance. Different timing may result in better performance.

However, to cope with advanced timing, one must run high-octane gasoline to avoid pre-ignition detonation or pinging. Manufacturers design for a specific timing and this may limit performance accordingly.

The reason to change the engine control unit map is if there are engine, intake, or exhaust modifications to the car. These "bolt-on" modifications alter the way that the engine flows, often causing the air to fuel ratio to change.

Without re-mapping the fuel tables, some of the performance gains from the modifications may not be realized.

The most common way to "upgrade" the engine control unit is using either plug in modules as mentioned above or using a specialist tuner who will use an On Board Diagnostics Flash tool. These devices generally plug into the diagnostic port although in some cases the reprogramming is done directly on the circuit board..

Maps are supplied by tuners

ECU Remapping

ECU remapping is when we take a read from the ECU’s processing chip of the vehicles standard tuning map. We then adjust various parameters within the map such as fuel pressure, boost pressure (on turbocharged applications) ignition advance and throttle pedal control, amongst others to release the true performance from the engineWhen a manufacturer develops a new vehicle they take into consideration all driving conditions and regions in which they intend to sell this model, in other words the tuning is a compromise. We rewrite or remap the vehicles engine software to safely gain more power and torque. This gives improved drivability and the added bonus of enhanced fuel economy on both petrol and diesel enginesAdding boost is one of the ways of adding power to a forced induction engine. If a car comes with a factory turbo, often it is tuned to keep boost levels reliable and efficient. By increasing boost, you’re increasing the amount of air packed into the cylinder. By adding air, you can now add more fuel. With more fuel burned, you can’t help but show your smile from ear to ear.

ECU or Engine chip tuning is a process where the electronic control unit of a car is reprogrammed, making the engine work within different parameters.

The ECU chip is located in the injection system and regulates the amount of air and fuel mixture that takes place. By reprogramming this, you can tell the chip what you want to happen with this mixture.

Thanks to the knowledge and experience acquired over the years The Mechanic is able to provide high quality professional ECU Tuning , the result of varied and extensive performance evaluations, ensuring maximum reliability and perfection in performance
