ECU Remapping

Book your service


At times, you might feel that your car runs slow, even when all its components are working perfectly. Most of the time, this is caused by a generic ECU programming done by your car’s manufacturer.

Vehicle manufacturers export their cars to countries all over the world. To comply with all the different emission standards, fuel availability, road safety issue, they often generically map the ECU.  It de-tunes your car, preventing it from performing at its fullest potential.

Numerous customers have complained about how manufacturers limit the output of their cars. True, it creates more problems than solutions, most of the time. To make sure that our customers do not suffer from limited performance, we, Superior Cars, are offering ECU remapping in Northampton.

  • Stepping it up a notch –

ECU, or Engine Control Unit, is a small-scale computer that is inside every modern vehicle nowadays. This tiny computer acts as the brain of your vehicle, controlling everything from its engine’s performance to checking whether all the other components are working fine or not. Overwriting the older software with a custom-made one; the newer version will increase your car’s performance multiple times.

At our ECU remapping garage, we use the latest version available to remap your car’s engine. Our technicians are certified to do both Chip tuning (updating the software directly on the EPROM), and ECU flashes via OBD port to make sure you get the best suitable one for your vehicle.

  • What’s the difference?

Not much actually. Whether you opt for a direct ECU flash, or a program replacement from the EPROM directly, you will get a newer version of the software installed.

Although, chip tuning is slightly out-dated. Since modern cars have OBD ports, most of our customers (and us) opt for direct remapping.

  • Should you go for a remapping?
