In addition to car servicing and repair, the team at P T Autos Ltd undertakes ECU remapping and programming on a wide range of vehicles for customers in Bedford and the surrounding areas.
What Is An ECU?
The ECU (Engine Control Unit) in your car is often described as “the brain” of the vehicle, responsible for the analysis of several key pieces of information such as engine temperature, exhaust and fuel quantity. The accurate assessment and management of this data by the ECU can help maximise engine performance and emission control when overtaking, accelerating and “pulling away”.
Most car manufacturers fail to program or “map” the ECU to its optimum potential, ensuring their vehicles meet a broad range of settings and legislative requirements for all the different countries in which they are sold. As a result, the Engine Control Unit is programmed to a default setting, with significant room for improvement!
Remapping / Reprogramming The ECU
When our experts “remap” or “program” the Engine Control Unit in your vehicle, you will notice a number of benefits. Firstly, the general fuel consumption and driving efficiency of your car will improve. You will be able to drive in a higher gear at a lower speed that will contribute to a reduction in fuel consumption.
Secondly, ECU programming will increase engine power and torque whilst sharpening the throttle response and widening the power band. As a result, the vehicle will feel much more responsive and lighter to drive, aiding in driver confidence and performance.
Benefits Of Remapping The ECU:
- Greater torque and engine power
- Heightened responsiveness
- Improved engine efficiency
- Reduced fuel consumption
- Additional horsepower
- Increased torque
- Safer overtaking
