Vehicle Remapping

Cars, Vans, Motohomes & HGV's

WHY?

Image

Because when the manufacturer originally ‘MAPS’ or programmes the ECU (Electronic control unit) that controls your vehicles engine they have to take into account many factors. These include various world markets, with different tax and emissions regulations operating conditions that the engine may be subjected to including extremes in temperature, humidity, operating altitudes , fuel quality, servicing attitudes, etc.

Taking all these things into consideration restrictive ‘compromises’ within the ’MAP’ have to be made to create a ‘one size fits all’ leaving valuable gains to be made by Re-mapping those original compromises. The full power output of some modern vehicle engines, is also not made available for another reason, on a commercial front, manufacturers like to up-sell bhp hikes on some vehicle models, at a much higher cost than an after market remap, even though the engine may be identical to the lower BHP model.

Very few products, if any, will have such a profound effect on your vehicle as a Custom Re-map and it’s unlikely that you will not be delighted with the performance and economy benefits that come with it.

We can unlock the full potential of your vehicle ECO Friendly doesnt have to mean boring

HOW?

ImageAt West Mids Remaps we use specialist tooling and software to rewrite the software in your engine’s ECU, to totally transform your car. We gain power and torque, within safe parameters set by the manufacturer, so improve drive ability. There is the added bonus of enhanced fuel economy too.

Economy gains vary from one engine type to another but are typically between 10 and 20%, turbo diesels being at the higher end. It will transform every aspect of your vehicle’s performance. It will feel more powerful, throttle response is improved, flats spots are eliminated and turbo lag reduced, the new torque range is like gaining an extra gear Our remaps produce real results that are quite simply second to none.

WM Remaps are not just simple adjustments to fuel supply, like a ‘tuning box’, but are a full remap of the entire engine control function of the ECU, including fuel supply, torque maps, turbo pressure control, throttle maps etc. The result is the smoothest, most powerful, efficient enhancement to your engine you can buy.

Eco Friendly Doesn’t Have To Mean Boring!

WM V-BLEND (BALANCED)

This offers a good mix of the WM V-Blue and the WM V-perf. It offers a better driving experience while returning an improved fuel consumption figure.

WM V-PERF (PERFORMANCE)

This is a popular remap choice, offering the best improvement of power and torque, whilst good drivers will still see and improvement in economy. It is designed to de-restrict the engine and open the true torque and power range. It offers a better driving experience while returning an improved fuel consumption figure. (Parameters are carefully managed to optimise best burn times and achieve optimum in-cylinder pressures / exhaust gas temperatures are kept within manufacturers guide lines.)

HOW IS THIS ACHIEVED?

ImageFirst of all, unlike many remapping companies, we carry out a free of charge engine diagnostic check of your vehicle to ensure there are no current faults that would affect the reprogramming process and the performance of the remap. We have latest diagnostic equipment for cars, vans, hgv’s & psv’s. The remap is carried out by accessing the vehicles ECU via the on board diagnostic socket (OBD). With our specialist equipment the original files are read and saved, transferred to a laptop computer which sends via email the programme file to our specialist software developers who carry out the enhancements to your vehicles software. The enhanced programme file is then returned and uploaded to your vehicles ECU. On a small amount of vehicles it is not possible to carry out this function via the OBD. So in this case the ECU is removed and either a chip change or boot loading function is carried out, direct into the ECU. The end product is exactly the same, only the process is slightly different. We use the latest Alientech tooling.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DOES THIS AFFECT WARRANTY?
In most cases no because it is not detectable even when main dealers need to access the ecu, they cannot detect this with their equipment and it’s unlikely that they would ever invest in the necessary equipment.
DO I NEED TO INFORM MY INSURANCE?
Like every other modification to your vehicle, for peace of mind, your insurance company should be informed.
IS THERE ANY RISK TO MY VEHICLE?
No. West Mids Remaps will not increase the parameters within the software beyond a safe limit, however we do recommend regular servicing and general upkeep of your vehicle. Our maps from Viezu are covered by £5million underwritten insurance..
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Normally a remap carried out through the OBD port will take less than 2 hours. (If the ECU needs to be removed, we would need to vehicle for longer)
WILL MY FUEL CONSUMPTION GO UP AFTER A REMAP?

No, in fact quite the opposite. Even on a performance tune, if you continue to drive the vehicle in the same way as you did before the upgrade, your fuel consumption will probably improve. Economy tuning can have a dramatic effect on fuel consumption, with considerable improvements being achieved along with huge money savings on fuel.
