These days the power and performance of most road cars is limited, not for mechanical or design reasons, but by the software that operates in the vehicles engine control unit (ECU).
While driving your car, computer algorithms are constantly running behind the scenes. These algorithms have an effect on various vehicle parameters, such as ignition timing, air to fuel ratio and turbo pressure. On modern cars, these parameters are usually set by the factory to meet in-production marketing targets, such as power output, fuel economy and emissions.
If you’re looking for greater engine performance and pulling power from your car, or if you’re seeking MPG improvement, your first port of call is that little black box under the bonnet.
By allowing a professional team, such as those at A1 Remapping, to analyse your ECU data and increase various performance factors, you can be sure to maximise your vehicles potential, beyond that of factory specification.
