Frequently asked questions

A tune up for a vehicle is merely an optimization of its software settings. Mostly all modern vehicles are equipped with an ECU (Engine Control Unit), which is effectively a small computer controlling all signals and different parameters in the engine. Running at the default software settings vehicles are far from optimized.

There are various reasons for this like different countries having different climates, fuel quality, laws and emission restrictions, which the software settings on the ECU must take into account. The manufacturers are selling the same engines all over the world, standardizing the software settings are therefore cost effective.

Meaning, running a vehicle on the default software settings limits the performance. Optimizing the software settings will release the full potential of an engine.

Traditionally, the only way you could tune a vehicle is by having it done at a specialized shop. Meaning, if you don’t live nearby one with competent software designers, you wouldn’t be able to.

However, cutting edge technology is now breaking down the traditional barriers.

Our innovative products and services make it possible to get a top quality tune up wherever you live.

Purchasing one of our consoles, you are easily able to make a copy of your vehicle’s default software settings.

Sending us your software settings via e-mail, our experienced software designers and developers will optimize the settings tailored to your vehicle. We have over 15 years of experience, and will never push a tune up to the limits of component failure, making sure you will get enhanced performance without compromising on safety.

Having received the optimized software settings, you activate it in your vehicle via the console.

For all the money and time you have put into your vehicle, it’s far from being optimized.

Most modern vehicles engines come with an ECU (Engine Control Unit), this is effectively a small computer with software controlling how the engine works.

A tune up will optimize these software settings, unlocking the full potential of your vehicle.

We stress that we will only tune engines within safe limits. The results you can expect vary depending on which vehicle you own. As a guide, you can expect a 15 – 30% boost in power, and reap the benefits of:

  • Increased performance
  • Increased torque
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • A more comfortable driving experience

Every tune up done by us will include optimized software settings specially tailored for your vehicle. We will never standardize our tune ups. The default software settings of your vehicle are our starting point. We stress that we will never compromise safety functions when optimizing.

On your request, we will also include these services in your tune up:

  • Deactivation of EGR
  • Deactivation of AdBlue
  • Speed limiter removal
  • Deactivation of Start-Stop

The EGR-valve recirculates a portion of the exhaust back into the engine and can be found in both diesel and petrol engines. Engines at high temperatures will emit nitrogen oxide, and EGR is a system for cooling the engine and thus reducing its omission.

Because the EGR-system recirculates exhaust gases, the EGR-valve can be clogged up with carbon deposits over time.

The EGR-system runs optimally when you’re driving on state-of-the-art highways, allowing you to drive at higher speed and revolutions over time. Meaning, the system doesn’t work well driving in urban environments.

If your EGR-valve is clogged up, you traditionally have two options. You can either clean the valve or have it replaced altogether. Cleaning the valve without changing the driving pattern will cause it to clog up again in just a matter of time. Replacing the valve is an expensive option.

The cheapest and most effective solution, in most cases, is to deactivate the EGR-system. By turning off the system before any problem occurs will save your engine a lot of wear and potential repairing costs.

Deactivating the EGR-system can be done by changing the code in the vehicle’s software settings. We include a deactivation of the system upon your request.

First, you have to disassemble the EGR from the engine. Then using a small brush and a carburetor cleaner to clean off the carbon clogging up the valve.

Then, you reinstall the EGR-valve. Make sure that it’s attached to the exhaust return and vacuum hoses.

However, unless you drastically change your driving pattern, it will just be a matter of time before it’s clogged up again. Meaning, the best solution, in most cases is to deactivate the system.

Deactivating the EGR-system can be done by changing the code in the vehicle’s software settings. We include a deactivation of the system upon your request.
