We all want our cars to be able to perform as well as possible without having to suffer, with bad mileage. The best way to improve performance of your car and get the most out of your engine is with ECU remapping or chip tuning. ECU remapping rewrites the code within your car’s engine so that customise functions and rewrite parameters. Chip tuning your ECU can allow you to modify your engine’s fuel economy and torque.
Economy remapping, or improving the fuel efficiency of your engine, can be done while chip tuning your engine. The ECU dictates how much fuel is released when you push on the pedal at a certain degree and how much air should be mixed with the fuel in the engine. You can engine tune your car to change the parameters of your fuel efficiency with ECU remapping. Chip tuning can change the amount of fuel released every time you hit the pedal and the intake of air so that you will end up getting better mileage. You can engine tune your ECU so that you can have more precise control of the fuel mixture within your engine. Economy tuning your engine through its ECU is the best way to ensure you get the best fuel efficiency possible. Just think about how much money you will save in gas when you economy remap your engine though ECU chip tuning.
ECU chip tuning can also unlock the potential of your engine’s power and torque. The default setting for the torque of your engine is usually set at a basic level for the average driver. The torque enhancement within your engine goes hand in hand with the economy remapping. Your engine won’t work as hard since the additional torque is lower down the rev range. If you have the need for speed, chip tuning your ECU can enhance the torque to reach higher speeds. It is possible for your engine to gain up to 50% more power when engine tuning to enhance torque.
The torque improvement depends on the type of engine in your car.
Non-Turbo petrol engine: 15% to 20% torque increase
Turbo petrol engine: 20% to 40% torque increase
Turbo diesel engine: 50% to 75% torque increase
The bullets above are some torque improvements that are possible with ECU remapping your engine. Overall, engine tuning can improve performance of your car, power and torque of your engine throughout the rev range.
You don’t need to be a racer to want to maximise the performance of your engine with chip tuning. Modern engine tuning can allow you to get better mileage than ever before by chip tuning your ECU. Your engine can also get an extra boost in horsepower and a better torque through ECU modifications. Chip tuning allows you to override the factory settings of your engine to improve the performance of your car. You will be surprised how much money you have been spending on gas to power your engine that could have been working more efficiently with an ECU remapping.
