What is an ECU? What is a Remap? How does a remap work?
ECU Remapping is the process that involves modifying the files and parameter data that is held within the ECU. The ECU has a whole table of data parameters which it uses to make real time adjustments whilst the engine is on. By ECU Remapping an ECU, we actually change the parameters within the data table, allowing more flexibility for the particular engine parameter. For example, we can modify the boost control parameter, allowing the turbo to work at a higher efficiency rate by increasing boost pressure.

All modern vehicles are fitted with an Engine Control Unit or ‘ECU’, this is the engines ‘brain’ and it has evolved from a simple circuit that controlled the ignition to a very sophisticated computer that now controls virtually every aspect of the car’s engine, from the amount of boost the turbo will create, when and how much fuel is injected, when the spark plugs fire, what pressure the fuel rail runs at, Exhaust Gas Recirculation or EGR, and Diesel Particulate Filter or DPF function and regeneration.
When car manufacturers programme this ECU to control the engines function they have to be very liberal with the setting, taking into account the various markets that the car may end up in, the lack of maintenance certain owners will embellish on the car, poor fuel quality etc, etc.
However car manufacturers will also down tune certain cars so that they fit into certain market categories as well as certain insurance categories. Many times a lower model will be a down tuned higher model, using exactly the same engine components but simply down mapped at the factory to produce lower power.
ECU remapping is the art of subtlety tuning the engines running parameters to achieve a higher state of tune. An ECU that is well remapped will result in a car that not only produces more power and torque it also returns a higher MPG and will drive smoother and be far more responsive that its standard counterpart.
