ECU Remapping - What is it?
The Engine Control Unit (ECU) is the "brain" of the engine. Amongst other things it reads,
understands and makes decisions based on the accelerator pedal demand angle, engine temperature
and oxygen content in the burnt exhaust gases. Dependant on this data, it will control the correct
quantity of fuel to provide a mix of fuel economy, performance and emission control.
The practice of remapping is to first read the ECU's processor of a vehicle's standard map and
then to adjust various parameters within that map. As an example: fuel pressure, boost pressure
(turbocharged engines) and ignition advance. When carried out correctly, this process will
successfully unlock engine performance.
ECU programming will improve power and torque figures, increase throttle response and widen the
power-band, resulting in a more flexible engine and a much sharper drive.
Another major benefit of remapping is a reduction in fuel consumption. Extra torque at the
bottom of the rev range requires less throttle input on acceleration and when maintaining
steady speeds. The vehicle can also be driven in a higher gear at slower speeds, thus reducing
revs, and this also applies to driving when fully loaded, towing or driving through elevation changes.
ECU Remapping is a safe process. It is just allowing the engine to perform as it can and should do
without the compromises.
Improved fuel economy
Better throttle response
Smoother power delivery
With our Remapping files we can often offer other services like:

ECU Remapping for Power and Performance:
Our performance remapping option delivers significant gains in raw power which results in a new lease
of life for your vehicle.
Our performance software is developed to maintain manufacturer reliability levels and original service
intervals whilst delivering a huge gain in power and torque of up to 30% which gives better throttle
response, faster acceleration and most often, better fuel economy.
HYDROFLOW - Engine Decarbonising Treatment Along with general
internal engine cleaning It can also help to clean and
unblock a DPF without removing it from the vehicle. The
Hydrogen gas continues to work post combustion in the exhaust system,
turbo, EGR & DPF. Because of this It should also be considered as a
annual treatment as this would play a major part in preventing a
DPF and issue's developing.
FORTRON INJECTOR MAX - Fuel Injector Cleaning Treatment
Along with Injector cleaning It can also help to clean
and unblock a DPF without removing it from the vehicle,
it does this with a special chemical process within the
gases post combustion by lowering the
regeneration temperature to make it easier to reach.
It should also be considered as a annual treatment,
this would play a major part in preventing DPF and other
ECU Remapping for Economy
A major benefit of remapping is a reduction in fuel consumption. We adjust the ECU profile to both widen
the power-band and give extra torque at the bottom of the rev range which then requires less throttle
input on acceleration and when maintaining steady speeds. The vehicle can also be driven in a higher
gear at slower speeds, thus reducing revs, and this also applies to driving when fully loaded, towing
or driving through elevation changes.
Combining our tuning with an adjustment in driving style to exploit the extra low end torque will give
an immediate improvement in fuel consumption. Our most effective results come from turbo-diesel engines
where we have seen fuel savings as high as 20%.
