A good car is not merely measured by the elegance of its interior and exterior but by its level of engine performance and fuel efficiency. These two aspects of the engine processes determine the level of control that drivers have on the cars in different condition driving conditions.
Many individuals who are in possession of a car always desire to get the best out of their cars whether in terms of fuel efficiency or engine performance. Maintaining cars that have poor engines can be costly and disappointing.
One way that you can use to improve engine performance and fuel efficiency is car remapping. This technology is a safe way of revamping old engines and boosting fuel efficiency, power, and performance. The advantage of this process is that your engine remains intact and your warranty unblemished. During the remapping process your car engine will not be dismantled and therefore there is minimum risk of developing mechanical problems.
What actually happens is that the whole work is done only on the ECU through a software program. Most modern cars are fitted with an engine control unit which regulates engine processes such as ignition timing, fuel and air intake and mixture and other engine processes. Settings for these processes are usually stored in ECUs in the form of maps.
During the remap, mechanics plug in special equipment which reads the maps. Once they read the maps, they use their experience combined with software to configure the best settings for a car. They then reprogram the car's ECU to the new settings the process which is referred to as remapping. The remapping process usually takes less than an hour to complete. This software and experienced engineers can determine the best settings for your engine so that it becomes more efficient in fuel intake and more powerful.
The types of engines that benefit more from a car remap are diesel engines. These types of engines have greater gains after remapping because they are more customizable than petrol engines which are less customizable. However you will still see a significant improvement to a petrol car.
So how does this process of remapping cars benefit your car?
Well, a car remap on a diesel turbo engine will make it produce more torque. This is essential to getting more from your engine as it becomes more responsive. This enables the car to get more out of each gear and reduces the need for gear changes when driving.
Those who are concerned about the reversibility of remapping will be pleased to know that if they want the settings to be restored to their original specifications it can be done. There is no limit to the number of car remaps you can have, it all depends on your driving needs.
