What Is ECU Remapping?

ECU Remapping stands for Engine Control Unit Remapping; it is also quite often referred to as chip remapping. Its purpose is to increase your engine’s performance allowing for a greater increase in power and torque. Another added benefit is that your fuel economy and engine responsiveness improves. It normally takes around an hour to and hour and a half to complete.




When coming to resell a vehicle that has been remapped it is important to consider that the price that you can sell the vehicle for can be affected. There is also the possibility that your engine could be damaged due to improper remapping. By taking your vehicle to an experienced professional these risks are reduced, so it’s a personal opinion of whether the benefits outweigh the risks.


How much does it cost?


Price will depend on the level of power in which you decide to go for; it will usually be in the range of £200-£500. There are different variations of maps you can get, depending on your needs.


How does it work?


ECU Remapping works on the principle that a car’s manufacturer has tuned the vehicle to a standard with wide-range tolerance, they can then be recalibrated to be more accurate. Temperature, fuel delivery rate and engine load can now be precisely managed, resulting in a vehicle that has a reduced margin of error and is significantly improved and precise. There will be an increase in performance with up to 50% increase in torque and 30% in bhp.


ECU Remapping means you will need to use high-performance fuels and your car will be required to be serviced on a more regular basis. Some of the car’s components may wear out faster which would mean you will be required to change them more regular.
