Frequenlty asked questions

Question

How long will it take?

Answer
Re-Maps usually take about two hours from start to finish, however, we endeavour to be as flexible as possible to fit in with your availability and can often find alternative options that can reduce this time further where necessary.
Question

Is re-mapping the same as chipping?

Answer

Chipping is an older version of what re-mapping is today, which involved the ECU being physically opened and replacing the main microchip with a modified microchip. Our far more advanced methods mean that there is now no need to open the ECU, risking potential damage and failure.

Question

Can a re-map be detected by a dealer servicing the vehicle?

Answer

The dealer may determine that the ECU has been modified however this is not straight forward with their equipment as our software is designed to be non-detectable. Should the dealer accidentally overwrite our upgrade we will happily provide another software upgrade completely FREE of charge.

How does it work?

A vehicle remap replaces default software on the ECU, overwriting it with new software which can be programmed to optimize the cars overall performance. This is known as vehicle remapping because the ECU is essentially a program that controls how the engine works. When your car is remapped, the tuned software is plugged into your cars serial port (or OBD port) which then overwrites the engine map with the new version to enhance engine performance.

The ability to flash directly through the OBD has brought the tuning industry on leaps and bounds, with constant development on the engine now being much quicker via the flash process, it has Black Code to develop some of the best software in the world.
