Frequently Asked Questions

Diesel remapping, also known as diesel tuning, is a process of modifying the software settings of the engine control unit (ECU) to optimise performance. It involves adjusting parameters such as fuel injection timing, turbocharger boost pressure, and torque limits to enhance power, torque, and fuel efficiency.

Our remaps start from $1050 incl gst, check out our pricing page for more information.

Diesel remapping can offer several benefits, including increased engine power and torque, improved fuel efficiency, enhanced throttle response, and smoother acceleration. It can also be a cost-effective alternative to engine modifications, as it utilises the existing components of your vehicle.

While most warranty providers are fine with professional remapping, in some cases it may void or impact the warranty provided by the vehicle manufacturer/warranty provider. It is advisable to check the terms and conditions of your warranty agreement or consult with the manufacturer before proceeding with the remapping.

Properly done diesel remapping can improve fuel efficiency by optimising the engine’s performance parameters. By adjusting the fuel injection timing and other relevant settings, the engine can operate more efficiently, resulting in better fuel economy.

Yes, diesel remapping has the potential to increase engine power and torque. By adjusting the ECU settings, the remapping process can optimise the combustion process, improve airflow, and maximise engine efficiency, leading to increased power and torque output.

Diesel remapping can be performed on a wide range of commonrail turbo diesel vehicles, including cars, trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles. However, the ECU protocol compatibility and available performance gains may vary depending on the specific make, model, and engine type.

The remapping process can vary depending on the complexity of the vehicle’s ECU and the specific remap required (tune, deletes, etc). In general, it can take anywhere from an hour to a full day. We can provide a more accurate estimate based on your vehicle and requirements.

Properly done diesel remapping, which optimises engine performance within safe limits, can potentially improve the lifespan of the engine. By ensuring better fuel efficiency, smoother power delivery, and reduced stress on the engine components, remapping can contribute to a longer-lasting engine.

No, if the remapping is carried out by a professional and reputable tuner, it should not cause excessive wear and tear on your vehicle. The remapping process aims to optimise performance

The performance gains from diesel remapping can vary depending on your vehicle’s make, model, and engine type. However, you can generally expect improvements in power, torque, and throttle response. On average, diesel remapping can provide power gains of 20% to 40% and torque gains of 30% to 50%. These enhancements result in improved acceleration, better towing capabilities, and an overall more engaging driving experience.

Yes, it is typically possible to revert back to the original ECU settings after remapping. We keep several secure backup copies of your original ECU file, allowing you to restore the vehicle to its factory settings if desired. It’s important to discuss this option with us before the remapping process.

Yes, diesel remapping can be done on older commonrail turbo diesel vehicles as far back as the early 2000’s. However, the suitability and available performance gains may vary depending on the specific vehicle and its engine technology. Older diesel vehicles with mechanical injection systems have different tuning options compared to modern commonrail turbo diesel engines with electronic control systems and are not able to be remapped.
