ECU chip tuning is changing or modifying your vehicles computer to gain many benefits related to its performance. Basically it is engine tuning where the computer in your engine can be modified to increase your fuel economy, pulling power, gain more torque or produce cleaner emissions.
That is dependent on your vehicle and what you plan to use it for. If you are putting a lot of miles on your car, then it may be advantageous to have an eco-tune that will optimise your fuel economy and emissions. If you are looking at racing your car, then you might want to consider a performance tune to give your car more power. If you want to know if a tune is right for your car, contact our knowledgeable team today and we will be happy to discuss whether an ECU chip tune is right for your vehicle.
There are a few tell-tale warning signs that there is an issue with one of your ECU chips. These include:
- Check Engine light coming on or staying on after resetting
- Problems with your car starting
- Your engine turning on or off for no reason
- Loss of spark
- Water Damage to your ECU
- Loss of fuel injection pulse or fuel pump
- Overheating of ECU
If you notice any of these issues, contact us today to schedule a vehicle diagnostic test to prevent more serious issues from occurring.
As long as you take your vehicle in to a qualified mechanic who has the skills and training, like our team at GMW, then it is 100% safe. Taking your vehicle into someone who has little experience in ECU remaps or programming can lead to your board diagnostics being misdiagnosed. This would create more serious issues and more costly repairs down the road.
