What is ECU remapping?
ECU remapping is also known as chipping. It’s a quick and relatively cost-effective way to improve the fuel economy and performance of your vehicle by modifying the engine control unit (ECU) factory settings. You could think of it like a software update for your computer or updating the operating system of your mobile phone.
ECU remapping is done via the OBD (on-board diagnostic) port that is also used to diagnose faults in your vehicle. It generally takes a couple of hours to complete and you can expect to notice the difference immediately.
