AD Auto Electrical is in partnership with Quantum Tuning, one of the most respected remapping brands on the market. We offer remapping/chip tuning to improve a vehicles performance; increasing both bhp and torque whilst improving fuel economy
ECU remapping improves the engines power and torque figures as well as sharpening the throttle response and widens the power-band. This makes the power delivery a lot more linear resulting in the vehicle feeling a lot livelier to drive and the engine more flexible. Frequently the vehicles power output is restricted by the manufacturer. This ensures that the vehicle fits into a class to suit fleet buyers. As a driving enthusiast, you don’t need or want such restrictions placed upon your vehicles ECU and its performance. Therefore you can benefit from the hidden power and torque locked away within your engine management system.
The other main benefit of remapping will be a reduction in fuel consumption. Extra torque especially at the bottom of the rev range will give a fuel saving. This is because it will require less throttle input to maintain motorway speeds. Therefore you can drive in a higher gear at a slower speed. It also helps significantly when fully laden, towing or on gradients and even in start stop traffic.
When we remap a vehicle, especially when fuel saving is the priority, we particularly focus on improving the low end torque and widening the power-band as far as we can.
This increase in low end torque will mean less throttle pedal input is required to maintain cruising speeds when fully laden or when on a gradient. It will also mean that the vehicle will be more comfortable in higher gears at slower speeds as well requiring fewer gear changes overall.
Combine these factors with adjusting your driving style to make the most of the extra low end torque and you will see an improvement in fuel consumption. This is most effective on turbo-diesel engines where the savings could be as much as 20%!
