ECU Remapping Problems

Not all remaps are created equal

You have landed upon this page as you are unsure about the safety of remapping and googling ECU Remapping Problems is probably a good place to start. But a common sense approach needs to be followed searching any subject on search engines with the word “problems” on the end, you are bound to find someone who has wrote something negative about virtually everything.

Remapping when performed properly shouldn’t and can’t give problems, it is quite simply the best performance increase you can add for very little cost. We cannot speak for other companies, yet from our 25 experience (at the time of writing) a professionally written remap not only performs perfectly whilst safe for your engine at the same time. We have many happy customers that return car after car so we must be doing something right, our reviews speak for themselves.

We use a quality rolling road (Dyno) to develop our remaps. Mainly to  ensure the power is applied correctly and smoothly. On the flip side to this common problem we see are vehicles remapped by a remapper lacking experience to “over-tune” a vehicle.

Over-tuning is when the power is sent over the top.  We hear and read the stories ourselves. But with a common sense approach to the subject many of these are easily avoided. Here’s how…..

ECU Remapping is a highly technical and specialised trade.

  • Experience is everything. Choose an experienced company (like us).
  • Don’t buy the cheapest thinking its a bargain, its cheap for a reason.

Cheap isnt good
Good isnt cheap

  • Expensive doesn’t always mean better, we have seen big brand remaps costing £500 plus that have massively under performed.
  • Avoid the “man down the pub” or “remap on a car park” scenario, you will regret it. They are always sub standard, smoky and lead people to think that remapping is always like that.

Fixing the blunders of these cowboys is not something we enjoy. Customers crying down the phone saying they believed all remaps were the same it appeared to be a bargain. However we perhaps help them to fix their ECU Remapping Problems?
