Professional car engine remapping across Portsmouth and beyond
For the past seven years, TCM Tuning has been providing the people of Hampshire with high quality remapping services from our central tuning yard in the historic city of Portsmouth. In that time we have performed thousands of remapping procedures for people right across the county, including those in Brighton, Chichester, Crawley, Fareham, Farnham, Guildford, Horsham, Petersfield, Southampton, Winchester, Worthing, and beyond. With our motto of you come to us, or we come to you, we have made sure that any client – domestic or commercial – who cannot make it to our Portsmouth tuning centre for whatever reason, can be attended to by our mobile remapping team in the familiar surroundings of their own home or place of work.
What is remapping?
Whatever make of car you drive – Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Bentley, Porsche, Seat, or whatever it might be – you will have an engine control unit (ECU) that determines how efficiently your engine works. Assuming that the engine itself is in tip-top condition, the ECU monitors its performance and installs blocks throughout the engine’s system, preventing it from working above a certain level. There are sound reasons for this – an engine operating at full-throttle unchecked is more likely to break down in one way or another. Improvements in one aspect of your engine performance can put unnecessary strain on others. By remapping your car you can tweak the performance to improve efficiency whilst also limiting its effect on the rest of the engine. That is what we do when we remap your car.
When should I have my car remapped?
If your vehicle is suffering from poor performance, it is always worth your while seeing if there is anything that can be done under the hood to improve matters. Likewise, if you’re looking to increase the efficiency of your car’s engine, whatever that means in terms of its day-to-day use, then we would certainly recommend that you consider getting your car remapped.
ECU recoding services
If your ECU fails to work entirely – or if you have reason to suspect it has a fault – then an ECU recoding may be in order. This involves resetting your ECU to its factory settings and allowing it to reconnect to your system. Once this is done, a new remapping can take place from scratch.
