ECU’s were first introduced back in the 1980’s as a supposedly more efficient method of controlling engine fuelling, ignition timing, and emissions. The problem lies in the fact that all new cars have to undergo ‘Type Approval’, and part of this is getting the car through the ‘Urban Driving Cycle’ tests. Remote from European driving conditions these tests are based on a simulated trip around Los Angeles with the resulting noxious gases collected in a bag for testing. For example, the car has to cope with poor fuel quality, hot, dry and dusty environments and at the same time still provide reliability and economy. In order to meet these stringent requirements, modern day engines are now virtually detuned to pass the test. As a result the car never performs as well as it is mechanically built for, resulting in hesitancy and flat spots. Taking this in to consideration it leaves masses of room for an engineer to re-tune the car to vastly improve both economy and performance without infringing any emissions regulations.
How is it Done?
All modern cars built after 1996 are fitted with an OBD II diagnostic socket situated under the dashboard close to the pedals as standard, it is this socket that is utilized to remap your car. DYNACHIP starts this remapping process firstly by identifying the ECU type in the vehicle and the software version and any upgrades that may have been installed. The data is then copied using our reading equipment and an original copy saved in case you may want to restore your vehicle to its original settings any time in the future. This takes anything up to 20 minutes to download and save the dataset.
Once the original data has then been remapped with the help of our sophisticated engine management software, we re-save the new performance file which is then uploaded back on to the vehicle. The whole process takes approximately One hour and can be carried out at your home or place of work. Following completion of the tuning process we then ask you to road test the vehicle to make sure you are happy with the work carried out.
Diagnose you car's issues Quickly
This is a brief overview of the Autologic Land Rover diagnostic platform. Autologic has the ability to perform diagnostics, coding, initialization and programming for all Land Rover vehicles. For more information on Autologic please contact us today. The Autologic platform will also allow performance tunes to be done on specific vehicle configurations.No DTC’s (diagnostic trouble codes) logged,we can analize component/system waveforms using PICOSCOPE automotive ocsilliscopes,essential for intermittent faults or frustrating battery drains.

Custom Specification, Custom Build
Neil Davey formed Landranger Deeside 4×4 in 1986 and has been working on the ultimate defender ever since. His Defenders are the real thing – How they used to be in the good old days, no complicated electronics! The original idea was to take the Land Rover back to basics, make it easy to work on and eliminate all the corrosion issues that the defender has in the UK.
Neil starts every painstaking rebuild by stripping a perfectly good vehicle down to every component and starting again. One thing you can notice about Neil’s Defenders is how they shine from within. Every steel part on each donor vehicle is galvanised to stop corrosion . Chassis , doors, axles, bulkhead, body capping’s. bumpers and even body supports and brackets are hot-dipped in plating. Once the galvanised parts come back to the workshop and Neil starts building the axles up using new internals, a very shiny rolling chassis starts to take shape. Even the brakes’ internals are stripped out and replaced with stainless pistons. We use stainless clips to secure the cupro-nickel brake line to the galvanised chassis. A new galvanised bulkhead is used fitted with stainless nuts and bolts.
All our Defender projects are built to the exact customer specification. You can choose whether you run diesel or petrol, V8 or Gas conversion, the choice is yours! The one thing you can be sure of is that every component is stripped out and replaced as new with genuine parts. As with your engine choice you can choose a manual or auto gearbox and expect nothing less than perfection.
Expert 4x4 Alignment
Using PRO-ALIGN Live Computerised Equipment.During the 4 wheel alignment procedure the technician will approach each vehicle and discuss with the customer regarding load, tyre type and condition, and vehicle handling characteristics to establish if there are any problems that may exist with the vehicle.We check/adjust caster,camber,toe front and rear.
An incorrectly set 4 wheel alignment can cause many problems:
• Adverse tyre wear
• Tyre noise when cornering
• Steering pull
• Self-centering problems
• Steering unbalance and wander
• Fuel economy
Worn or damaged mechanical components can cause tyre wear or impact the vehicles handling. Wherever possible the technician will attempt to identify if any components are damaged or worn, and will recommend replacement or repair prior to adjusting the wheel alignment or geometry. Possible issues could be incorrect tyre pressures, incorrect tyre fitment, track rod condition, worn ball joints, worn wheel bearings, worn steering components, damaged suspension parts and possible body or chassis issues.
Damage Free Alloys
Whether you have factory fitted Land Rover alloys or bespoke custom made alloys, you will always want to ensure when it comes to changing the tyres, your beautiful alloys are not scratched or damaged in the process. That’y why LandRanger Deeside have invested in the right equipment to ensure your alloys leave in the same condition as when they arrived.
We use the innovative minds at the engineering giants at Hoffman who have designed a “lever-less” tire changer that prevents damage and scratches to Alloys, which is typically generated and found from cheaper “Lever” based machines. Watch there YouTube video for more details.
