In the long term our tune up system could save you Thousands, whilst providing you with a greater road experience. Contact with our technicians today for a free no obligation assessment and find out just how much we could improve your vehicles performance.
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.
