What Is Engine Remapping?

Engine Remapping overwrites the manufacturer’s factory settings, allowing your car to perform at its highest potential. Engine Remapping is only allowed to be undertaken by a professional since fiddling with your car’s engine yourself can be dangerous. 

When you get your engine remapped, you’re fully optimising your car’s performance, allowing it to exceed its potential. Even slight modifications can make a huge difference to the driving experience you’re going to have.

Sometimes, you’re also able to add physical changes when getting your engine remapped, these include spoilers and coilovers! This is a great process if you’re looking for a way to get the highest potential out of your vehicle. 

Engine remapping is also sometimes called ‘Chipping’. It’s not dangerous to the engine though it does put more strain on it. It also won’t affect the lifespan of the engine, this is assuming it’s been undertaken by an experienced technician at a garage.

The Ins and Outs

Engine remapping is a process in which code is added to the car’s software, re-writing the way it works, but what doesn’t it do?

When you choose to have your engine remapped, nothing will be removed from your car. The entire process is contactless and completely diagnostic. The technician will access the ECU via the OBD (Onboard Diagnostic Port) placed within a meter of the driving seat.

However, on occasion, the ECU might need to be removed depending on the model of your car and when it was made. The newer the model, the more likely it is the ECU will need to be removed to complete this process.

Depending on what you want to add and the process you’re aiming to have done, this entire process should take less than an hour in total to complete. If you need your ECU removed, this process will likely take over an hour. 

It’s also important to note not all cars can be remapped. Engine remapping is only available for newer and more modern models of cars since the software is up-to-date. The extent of the remapping on your car, no matter the model and age, depends on where you have this service done.
