Why Should I Remap My Vehicle?
Updated: Jun 21
If you're wondering "Why Should I Remap My Vehicle?", there are several compelling reasons to consider this service.
“While tuning an automobile for best performance may seem overwhelming and expensive to many casual drivers, you’ll be amazed to learn that tuning can be done in as little as 30 minutes by remapping” shared used vehicle broker Burke Wilson of Great Rides.
What Is Remapping?
Remapping, also known as ECU (Engine Control Unit) tuning, is changing the parameters of a vehicle’s software to enhance several aspects of your vehicle’s performance. The specialists at TayTec Tuning can remap your vehicle to handle airflow, fuel injection, boost pressure, and more by overwriting the current settings with customised programming, all within safe limits.
Should You Remap Your Vehicle?
Here’s what you’ll get when you remap your vehicle.
Reason #1 - Remapping Takes A Couple Of Hours
Including our complimentary full diagnostic check, we can remap your vehicle in as little as one hour. Some exceptions to this, but we aim to have most jobs completed in a couple of hours max so you don’t have to be without your vehicle for long.
Reason #2 - Remapping Eliminates Flat Spots To Boost Power
Flat spots are removed during remapping, resulting in better power delivery. Without flat spots, you can boost your vehicle’s power at higher RPMs resulting in a better drive and smoother driving experience.
Reason #3 -Remapping Increases Your Vehicle’s Torque
Torque is a measure of an engine’s capacity to do work, and more torque equals faster acceleration. Your vehicle’s torque should increase by 20-30% after a remap (roughly 5% on normally aspirated vehicles). More torque translates to faster speed and reduced in-gear duration, both of which are critical for safe and easy overtaking.
Reason #4 - Remapping Improves Fuel Efficiency
Under typical driving conditions, you won’t need to use as much throttle to accelerate since greater torque is generated at all revolutions per minute (rpm). This leads to improved fuel efficiency, and as a consequence of our remapping service, our fleet clients have seen considerable fuel savings.
Reason #5 - Remapping Rekindles Your Driving Passion
Nothing is more frustrating than driving a sluggish vehicle. It’s not just annoying, but it may also be dangerous. Remapping may extract 20-30% additional torque and power from your engine, which is a significant increase that you’ll notice immediately, the first time you get back behind the wheel.
Reason #6 - Remapping Is Cost-Effective
Remapping gives HUGE performance improvements compared to independent exhaust, turbo, and air intake enhancements. Installing a new performance exhaust, turbo, and air intake. For example, you’d be fortunate to get an additional 35bhp out of a 2015 Golf GTI for a more than £2000 investment. In contrast, a remap would give you a baseline 50bhp and 50 lb/ft performance boost for over 60% less. All while using your vehicle’s original components.
