This is a new section for vRS World as we have been researching performance tuning or remapping our Skoda Octavia vRS.
ECU remapping (tuning) is fine tuning the program that deals with engine performance. As well as producing greater power and torque.
Petrol (Naturally Aspirated)
Remapping a petrol engine ECU will produce 10 - 15% BHP depending on exact specification, the engine will also be more responsive on initial acceleration and produce more torque (up to 20%) through out the entire rev range, giving more response on lighter throttle.
Remapping a petrol turbo engine ECU will produce 20 - 30% BHP depending on exact specification, the engine will be significantly more responsive with power coming in immediately relative to throttle input with no lagging at higher revs.
Remapping a diesel turbo engine ECU will produce 30 - 50% BHP and 60 - 75% torque depending on exact specification, diesel engines give the most impressive power and torque gains available. Extra power is gained through out the entire rev range and under all load conditions.
Serial port programming allows us to remap an ECU (Engine Control Unit) without removing the ECU from the car, the remapped software is uploaded direct to the ECUs EPROM via the vehicles diagnostic socket, this allows for the performance conversion to be totally invisible with no soldering or removal of components.
Here are some examples of what the power changes can be when adjusting (flashing) the ECU.
|Fabia VRS 1.9 PD TDI (130HP) DIESEL||130bhp/198Nm||158bhp/255Nm|
|Octavia VRS 1.8 20V TURBO (180 BHP) PETROL||180bhp/173Nm||210bhp/225Nm|
