What does ‘remapping’ mean?
The process of remapping a car, otherwise known as ‘chipping’, involves adjusting the microchip in the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to change the manufacturer’s factory settings. The ECU is the computer in the car that controls the engine power and is typically programmed to limit performance.
Car manufacturers limit the performance of cars for several reasons, including those to lengthen the lifespan of the vehicle and comply with noise and emissions regulations; it also allows the manufacturer to release a faster model without having to use an entirely different engine. Thus, Automotive Tuning & remapping your engine to stage 1 alone can increase power by an average of 20 - 30%, But also return an extra 10-15% MPG when driving casually.
Vehicle Remapping isn’t very expensive, which can make it a quick and cost-effective way to allow your car to reach its full potential. Although the exact price will likely depend on the make and model of your car.
6 potential benefits of remapping your vehicle!
As long as it is done correctly, remapping can bring several improvements to your car’s system. Here are some of the ways a good-quality remap can potentially benefit your ride:
A boost in speed and power ✔
The classic, and most popular reason why people might get their car remapped is because it boosts both the speed and power of the car. This will be particularly evident when overtaking.
Better fuel economy ✔
Remapping your car can increase how many miles per gallon you can go, improving your overall fuel economy.
Lower fuel costs ✔
As your remapped car will now be able to do extra miles for every gallon of fuel, this means you will find yourself filling up your fuel tank less often, thus lowering your fuel costs.
Greater environmental friendliness ✔
In addition to lowering your fuel costs, better fuel economy reduces your carbon footprint, as you will be causing less pollution by driving your car.
Sharpened control ✔
After engine remapping, you should be able to feel that the ride feels smoother and easier, due to enhanced accelerator and engine response, and sharpened control.
Extra power for towing ✔
If you use your car for towing a heavy caravan or trailer, you may notice that your car has to work hard to climb or accelerate. However, remapping will give you extra power so your car will not have to work as hard when towing.
of a poor engine remap
However, it’s not as simple as doing the job yourself. You must ensure your vehicle’s remap is done by a safe and responsible specialist, such as the professionals at Torque Monkeys Automotive LTD. Most cars that are diesel or petrol can be remapped.
To illustrate just how important it is to use a trustworthy specialist, here are the risks associated with a bad remap:
Increased wear and tear ❌
Greater power can lead to a greater strain on the engine, and so major components like the brakes and clutch can suffer from increased wear and tear.
If your car’s remap is done incorrectly, this wear and tear can lead to you breaking down. However, if the task is handled by a professional, this will just mean you need to plan for getting your car serviced more frequently.
Reduced car value ❌
As it is a modification, remapping can also potentially reduce the value of your vehicle, and even more so if it is not done by a specialist.
Voided warranty ❌
Check the terms and conditions of your warranty. If you get a remap that isn’t approved by the dealership or the manufacturer, this could make your warranty void.
An invalidated lease contract ❌
Similarly, if you lease the car or have car finance, remapping the car can invalidate your lease contract.
Invalid Insurance ❌
Some Insurers will cover vehicles that have been modified by way of a remap or further in depth modifications. However, if this tuning has been done by way of "DIY". These insurance companies will invalidate your insurance as it was not carried out by a professional and is less likely to be "Safe". Always make sure your performance tuning is carried out by a professional and reputable tuner such as us at Torque Monkeys Automotive!
