Below are some of the more commonly asked questions, if you'd like more information or have other questions please feel free to Contact Us.
Are your remaps safe for my vehicle?
Our process enhances and optimises the power of your engine within safe boundaries, not beyond them. We only supply maps that have been properly tested on a chassis dyno.
Is remapping illegal?
No, remapping a vehicle is not illegal in the United Kingdom.
Do I need to tell my insurance company about my remap?
We advise that you should inform your insurance company about any modifications you make to your vehicle.
Do you keep a copy of my original ECU software?
Yes, every read we take is archived to secure storage.
How long does the remap process take?
Usually the process is complete within an hour, though occasionally at peak periods it can take slightly longer to receive the upgraded software back from our tuning panel, we therefore recommend that you allow at least 2-3 hours.
Will a remap invalidate my manufacturer warranty?
Technically Yes, modifying any part of your vehicle can invalidate some or all clauses of a manufacturer warranty, in almost all cases however we perform no physical modification to your ECU as the remap can be loaded via the diagnostic port.
Can a remap be reversed?
Yes, we can revert your car to its stock map for a fixed fee if you're outside of the 30 day money back guarantee period. Please contact us.
What warranty do you offer?
We do not change any hardware in your vehicle, and as such our warranty covers only the software we install against corruption and faults.
What level of insurance cover do you have?
We have £2M public liability and £2M professional indemnity insurance.
Will a manufacturer software update wipe out my remap?
In all likeliness the answer is yes, most updates are to ECU software which would overwrite the custom map we install.
Where do you operate?
We are mobile remappers, operating in Essex and surrounding areas.
I have a modified engine/bigger turbo/larger injectors, are you able to provide a map?
This is a service we are only offering on a limited basis at present though this may change in future.
Have your remaps been tested?
Yes, every single one of our maps has been tested on a chassis dyno prior to being installed.
What performance gains can I expect on a turbo diesel engine?
Turbo diesel engines respond exceptionally well to remapping, you can usually expect to see a 20-30% gain in performance.
What performance gains can I expect on a turbo petrol engine?
Turbo petrol engines respond very well to remapping, you can usually expect to see a 15-30% gain in performance.
What performance gains can I expect on a naturally aspirated engine?
Naturally aspirated engines do not respond quite as well to remapping as their turbo counterparts, realistically you can expect a 5-10% performance gain.
What is the difference between chip tuning and remapping?
On pre-2001 cars, for the majority remapping involved unsoldering a chip from the ECU motherboard and either adding a socket or a new chip for the updated map data to be stored on, with advances in technology we no longer need to do this as most vehicles can have their software updated via the OBD2 port.
