What is Chip tuning?
Process of ECU optimisation / chiptuning
Read out the vehicle ECU
This is done by specialised tools by reading the software over an OBD2 diagnostic port or, directly from ECU itself. It’s done either by connecting to ECU port via specific connector, or by connecting to the ECU port pins directly or, in rare cases, by opening ECU and connecting directly to the processor and special contact points.
Optimisation of the software
After reading and uploading the original file to our system, our experienced in-house developers modify the settings and map the values needed to achieve the desired results for each vehicle individually. Once the software optimisation is complete, it is saved in the database together with the original file, and delivered to the customer via our system.
Writing the software to the ECU
Modified software is developed specific for the exact vehicle model, year, engine, ECU hardware and software version including all specific options and can be written into the ECU in the same way as it was read. After the writing of the optimised software, your vehicle instantly benefits from the improved software and performance.
What are the Chip tuning
The main advantage is releasing the full potential of your engine and vehicle itself, which has been tamed from the factory to achieve emissions and fuel consumption norms for different markets, or to position vehicle in the lower price bracket due to marketing decisions. Further, it is a completely reversible if you ever want to go back to the original stock form.
Tuning or ECU remapping is the cheapest way of modifying vehicle software and thus altering performance, characteristics and functions of the vehicle. The price depends on several factors including workshop hours, professional tool & licence expenses, the remap development price for your specific ECU and desired options, and is set by each dealer individually for their market.
For the exact price it is best to contact one of our dealers closest to you.
