If you compare the features offered in the cars of yester years and the cars of today’s generation you will notice that the cars manufactured are equipped with the features which almost two decades back were considered impossible to be merged in one unit. But going through the vast technical developments the cars manufacturers are customizing the cars with unbelievable features, in-fact day is not far when we will be traveling in driverless cars and even flying car.
Anyhow, do you know that the car that you have just taken out from the dealership believing to offer you the optimized performance while you drive at its top speed. Unfortunately, it would not be the actual performance of your car that you would be driving, of-course you might be surprised to know it but you will be more shocked and stunned if you come to know that this reduction in the performance of your vehicle has been done intentionally by the car maker then definitely you will not only feel cheated by the manufacture but will also feel your hard earned money going in the dustbin.
Well, before you make any such assumption and plan to sue both the dealer and the manufacturer let me make it clear that this deficiency in the performance of the vehicle is done according to international driving standards prevailing in different countries across the world. Interestingly, you need not have to lose your heart as still there are some options by which you can enjoy the minimized potential of your car by remapping it also called as car ECU remapping.
Engine Control Unit (ECU) can be considered as the brain of your car that is used for controlling the overall performance of your vehicle with the help of computer program installed in the ECU. As the programming of any computer can be changed according to your requirements similarly the programming controlling the functionality or performance of engine can be altered according to your requirements.
Now the question arises that when by altering the programming of ECU its potential can be enhanced then why the makers hide the actual performance of car while launching it. An answer to this question is to make the vehicle capable of combating the problems like presence of poor quality fuel, varied environmental conditions, driving roads etc and availability of an economic car desired by the car buyers. Because if they sale the car strictly according to its determined efficiency then there are chances that in absence of required driving conditions the engine of vehicle can be damaged. Therefore to prevent the engine from any damage they de-tune the engine and making it compatible for an average car owner.
Nevertheless if you can find high grade fuel and standard driving conditions in your country, by remapping the settings of engine control unit you can unleash the hidden power and performance of your car. Remapping the engine enhances the performance of fuel pressure, fuel injector, boosting pressure of turbo engines, timing of fuel to the engine and various other diameters that improve the power of engine and minimize its level of emissions.
In today’s scenario engine remapping the best possible way to improve the performance of both types of vehicles whether they are newly launched or old vehicle. The only thing you need to keep in concern is to get the whole process get accomplished by an expert mechanic. Once you get the remapping carried on your vehicle you will have to drive it according to the new determined parameters and instructions and get it regularly serviced on time without ignoring it.
