What is Remapping?
In a nutshell, car remapping, also known as ECU tuning, is the process of manipulating the settings on a car to suit the owner’s needs. Owners have the ability to alter the engine’s behaviour with a computer, dictating exactly what they want from their car. Obviously, legal limitations must be followed.
How Does Remapping Work?
Remapping a car is a straightforward process. The main change to be made is to the manufacturer’s default settings and software. We do this by replacing the old ECU software (Engine Control Unit) with our new custom software. To do this, we connect the updated software to the car’s serial port. Luckily, this process has gotten a whole lot easier!
What Exactly Does Remapping Do?
Now that we are familiar with what Remapping is and how it works. Here are a few examples of how ECU remapping benefits your motor:
- Increased power – One of the most common reasons for remapping an ECU is to increase the motor’s power. The driver will be able to accelerate much more quickly, resulting in increases in 0-60 & top speeds. The increased output usually leads to higher fuel consumption.
- Increasing responsiveness – Speed and power are often the reason for remapping the ECU. The settings can be altered by some drivers to improve fuel efficiency. This is due to the drivers being able to reduce the number of gear changes necessary to overtake or perform other driving situations that require torque and horsepower.

Can remapping damage your engine?
The answer is no. Not if it’s done correctly. However, the changes you make may further strain the engine. If your engine is remapped by a trained and certified professional, then it will be perfectly safe.
