ECU Remapping for extra power and performance
Have you ever wanted just a little more power from your Vauxhall?
ECU remapping could be the answer you have been looking for...
At Picador we can utilise performance software that has been developed to maintain Vauxhall reliability levels and original service intervals, whilst delivering a huge gain in power and torque of up to 30%. This will give you better throttle response, faster acceleration and importantly, better fuel economy.
Like most manufacturers Vauxhall need to limit the power and mpg of their vehicles because they sell across various markets that have extreme climates, different tax/emission regulations and diverse fuel quality. They must take all these factors in to consideration and therefore need to make substantial compromises in their ECU tuning set-up. However, Picador are able to offer a remapping service which can safely optimise power and torque outputs and unlock engine potential to deliver great performance.
- Increased horsepower
- Increased torque
- Better throttle response
- Smoother power delivery
- Safer overtaking
- Improved fuel economy
- Lifetime warranty of the software
ECU - What is it?
The Engine Control Unit (ECU) is the ‘brain’ of the engine. Amongst other things it reads, understands and makes decisions based on the accelerator pedal demand angle, engine temperature and oxygen content in the burnt exhaust gases. Dependant on this data, it will control the correct quantity of fuel to provide a mix of fuel economy, performance and emission control.
What is ECU Remapping?
The process to remap is to read the ECU’s existing processor of a vehicle’s standard map and then to tweak various parameters within that map. When carried out correctly, this process will successfully unlock engine performance.
ECU programming will improve power and torque figures, increase throttle response and widen the power-band, resulting in a more flexible engine and a much sharper drive.
Another major benefit of remapping is a reduction in fuel consumption. Extra torque at the bottom of the rev range requires less throttle input on acceleration and when maintaining steady speeds. The vehicle can also be driven in a higher gear at slower speeds, thus reducing revs, and this also applies to driving when fully loaded, towing or driving through elevation changes
ECU Remapping is a safe process. It is just allowing the engine to perform as it can and should do without the compromises.
