If a professional does it, remapping your car could improve its performance in many ways. So, let’s look at the benefits of professional auto remapping in Grays and give you some simple tips to help you make the best decision for your car.
What does it mean to “remap”?
When remapping a car, also called “chipping,” the microcontroller in the Electronically Controlled Unit (ECU) is changed to change the settings that the manufacturer put in at the factory. The engine power is controlled by the car’s ECU, which is a computer. Most ECUs are set up to limit performance.
Car companies put limits on how fast their cars can go for several reasons, such as to make sure the car lasts longer and meet noise and pollution rules. This also lets the company make a faster prototype without needing to use a different engine. So, remapping your motor can add between 20 and 35% more power on average.

As long as it’s done right, remapping can improve your car’s system in several ways. Here are some ways that a good-quality remap might help your car:
1) Inexpensive Procedure
Remapping isn’t very expensive, so it can be a quick and inexpensive way to get the most out of your car. Most of the time, remapping costs between £250 and £400, but the actual cost will depend on the make and model of your car.
2) A speed and power boost
The most common and well-known reason why people get their cars remapped is that it makes the car go faster and have more power. This will be especially clear when passing. With a remap, the manufacturer’s restrictions on your car can be taken away. By doing a reconfigure, you can make your vehicle’s settings more accurate, depending on where you live, how high you are, and the reliability of the fuel you have. When all of these things are tuned to perfection, the high torque output will go up.
3) Better fuel economy
By remapping your car, you can get more miles per gallon, which means your car uses less gas overall. Since your reconditioned car will be able to go further on each gallon of gas, you will fill up the gas tank less often, which will save you money on gas. Also, remaps for this purpose give you more precise control over the fuel, which means your car will get much better gas mileage.
4) Greater environmental friendliness
In addition to saving you money on gas, a car with a better fuel economy makes less pollution, which lowers your carbon footprint.
5) Controlled better
You ought to be able to feel that the ride is smoother and easier after remapping the engine. This is because the accelerator and engine should respond better and you should have better control. ECU remaps can make a big difference in how responsive the engine is and how the throttle responds. This is good news if you’ve been worried about how well your car works. Your car will always be easier to drive if its performance and handling are improved. Also, an ECU reconfigure can make these things up to 40% better.
6) More power to pull with
If you are using your car to pull a heavy caravan as well as a trailer, you may realize that it is hard for your car to go uphill or speed up.
7) Can be changed in any way
The good thing about remaps is that you can make them fit your needs exactly. You can also have more than one set of remaps so that you can switch between them based on what you need while driving. This is very helpful if you want to drive your car on different surfaces and in different weather conditions.
