In the past remapping the ECU of a car was a very niche thing. It was something that you would generally only find racers and enthusiasts looking into. However, today more and more people are looking at the efficiency and economy of their vehicles. That means there is more interest in getting the engine map right. Reidy Remaps can help, offering the highest quality ECU mapping Wiltshire drivers can ask for.
Originally the remapping process was known as chipping. It got this name because the process would literally involve removing a microchip from the ECU and installing one with a new map. It was trickier to do and more labour intensive.
Today, the process is far different. The advances in vehicle technology have really helped here. Now new vehicles include an Onboard Diagnostic Port (OBD). This allows technicians to plug a laptop in and diagnose any problems with the ECU. It can also find problems with other parts of the vehicle. For remapping, it makes it easy to upload a new map and means no need to replace the chip.
With the OBD it takes less than 30 minutes to upload a new map to a car. It takes about the same amount of time to restore the original too if there is any issue with the remapping. This makes it far more convenient than it was in the past.
