THE COSTS OF ECU REMAPPING
The cost for an OBD remap now starts from just £150, yes £150!
And the more complex remaps where the ECU has to be removed from the car start from just £220 too, so again another real saving!
But that’s like £100+ less than some deals I’ve seen? Correct yes it is, so why am I so cheap?
Because I am a Motorsport Engineering degree qualified ex BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) mechanic that loves working with cars and putting a smile on customer’s faces! For me the reward of remapping a car is the gains / benefits that are seen by the customer and the friendships created from doing them, monetary gains to me are negligible
Have you got an issue with someone else’s remap?
When I started remapping ECU’s in Yeovil and the surrounding areas 40% of my initial work was putting other local companies / individuals remaps right. These issues can be caused by numerous reasons but most are because people cut corners, for example:
- Poor tuning (where only 'some' of the maps in your ECU are adjusted not all of them!)
- Poor application (the writing process to the ECU is delicate and requires precision)
- Use of clone tools (some buy a cheap chinese remap tool and think they can do anything....wrong!)
- Poor judgement (each car is different and will therefore benefit from having different things done)
As mentioned previously we pride ourselves in our work and therefore only do a job if we believe the final product will be spot on, there have even been several occasions where we have fixed a customers issue before theyve brought the vehicle to us just by listening to their issues and giving advice.
So if you’re experiencing any issues then please let us know and we can help you get them rectified ASAP before any long term damage is done to your pride and joy. Some common issues experienced are:
Kangarooing at low speed
Jumping at certain engine RPM’s
No fuel economy increase
Minimal power increases
