We connect to the vehicles ECU or ‘brain’ with a laptop through the vehicles diagnostic socket (OBD port) and copy the current engine management file.
That is then sent to head office and customised to your vehicle and requirements. We then upload the modified file back into your ECU.
On some vehicles it is not possible to carry out
this function by the diagnostic socket, in these cases we have to connect directly to the ECU, and in others the ECU has to be removed and opened so we can connect directly to the circuit board to lo
load the new map.
The end result is the same, only the process is different.
Depending on the vehicle, the process can normally be completed in less than 2 hours.
