What is chip remapping?
Most modern vehicles contain an ECU (Engine Control Unit), this is effectively a small computer which controls how the engine works. In all ECU’s there is software that controls all the signals and different parameters in the engine. The default software settings in any vehicle are far from being optimized.
The main reason for this is money. Consider the fact that manufacturers sell the very same engines all over the world. Different countries have different climates, fuel quality, laws and emission restrictions, which software settings on the ECU must take into account. Selling vehicle’s with standardized software settings saves a lot on the production costs.
Vehicle remapping and chip tuning are essentially a modification of the manufacturer’s default software settings in the ECU. The modified software will optimize your engine giving you enhanced performance and a reduction in fuel consumption.
How does it work?
Remapping the software settings of your vehicle is traditionally done in specialized shops. Meaning, it can’t be done if you don’t live nearby a specialized shop. Should you be so lucky that you live nearby one, you would suffer downtime on your vehicle while the software engineers are working on it.
With our innovative product and service, you can safely and easily do it yourself wherever you live.
As mentioned before, a vehicle remap replaces the default software in the ECU, which is an easy process with our power consoles.
With a console from us at hand, you are easily able to copy your vehicle’s default software settings within minutes. Connecting the console to the vehicle’s OBD-socket (On-Board Diagnostics socket), which nearly all modern vehicles have located in its cockpit, a simple step by step guide pops up on the console’s touchscreen. Following the guide to completion and you will have a copy of the default software settings on your console.
Having made a copy of the default software settings on the console, you connect it to your computer. You then attach the default software settings to an e-mail you send to us. Our software designers will then start optimizing your software before returning it to you, usually already by next business day.
The console is, once again, plugged into your vehicle’s OBD-socket. On the console, you select the optimized software settings which will commence the process of optimizing your vehicle. Once completed, usually by 2 to 15 minutes, you can unplug the console. Meaning, you can reap the benefits of enhanced performance without carrying any additional boxes or loose wiring. After all, it’s merely a software optimization.
It’s that easy!
Is it better?
We stress that we never compromise the vehicle’s safety and durability to increase power and performance. The only way to optimize a vehicle, while still keeping it safe and durable, is through making changes in the existing control system of the engine, the ECU software settings.
Our tuning process has total control over all parameters at any moment and doesn’t disturb the safety functions of the vehicle by deceiving the system. Something which is common for cheaper alternatives.
We optimize and deliver enhanced performance in power, torque, and fuel economy.
Exactly how much of an enhancement you can expect will vary from vehicle to vehicle. Check the improvements that can be made to your engine here.
Along with enhanced performance, these are the benefits we provide:
- Nothing needs to be connected to the vehicle after the installation to get the benefits.
- No loose wires or boxes in the cockpit or the engine compartment.
- If required, reinstalling the original settings is just as easy as installing the optimized software.
- The on-board computer will show correct fuel consumption.
Is it safe?
A proper job will never cause any damage to your engine. How much you can push an engine is different from model to model. Our experienced software designers will never get close to the limits of component failure.
We will always enhance power and performance of your engine within safe limits.
How can a more powerful engine save on fuel consumption?
We’re now entering a technical territory which is complex. The simple answer is that by optimizing an engine, the different components will work more efficiently together. A more efficient engine allows you to reap the benefits of enhanced performance along with a reduction in fuel consumption.
How much can I boost my vehicle’s performance?
As mentioned before, we 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
Are you able to tune any vehicle?
Unfortunately, no. We specialize in tuning tractors from John Deere and Claas, and a host of cars from different manufacturers. We have made a database of all the different car models we can tune, which also shows you how much of an boost in performance we can give each model.
To get your ECU remapped, as mentioned before, you would normally have to go to a specialized shop. Competent software designers are few in numbers, and Europe is the base of the majority of them. Meaning, quality service is hard to come by if you live in other parts of the world.
However, with the help of innovative new technology, and our drive to help customers all over the world, we have a unique product and service you can use wherever you live.
Our device gives farmers and car owners all over the world the possibility to optimize their engines with the best software available. We give you an ingenious device that gives you total control and freedom.
Moreover, every single software designed by us is unique! We will never use standard maps that are limited in its effectiveness. The original software from your engine is always our starting point, and from here we tailor new software optimized for your vehicle.
Our software developers and engineers have over 15 years of experience having designed software for several thousand vehicles.
We achieve a degree of sophistication for your engine and requirements that add-on boxes can’t deliver.
Powerconsoul values satisfied customers. If you’re not 100% satisfied with our products and services, we offer a full refund through our 30 days unlimited return period.
We are that confident that we offer a product and service that delivers on its promises.
