These are three different methods we use in order to access or overwrite the files data in your ECU. 1:OBD method is through your OBD diagnostic port ( Most cars). 2: Bench method is by connecting directly to the ECU's pins on the connector - usually by taking the ECU out of the car onto work bench ( some cars ). 3: Boot mode is by splitting the ECU open and connecting directly to the motherboard ( Very few cars).
Unfortunately, No. Diesel self ignites inside the cylinders without spark plugs just by high compression as a result it is not possible to do overrun and pops and bangs on them like you see on petrol cars
Yes, we can upload your original file back into your car at anytime even if it was not remapped by us.
Simple answer is Yes if they can find out & prove it. If its under warranty, any modification you do to your car can potentially void your warranty at the time of claim. please refer to your manufacture's T's & C's
We recommend removing your cat for pops & bangs even if you have cat back exhaust, performance cat, res or backbox delete. The reason for that is, cat can potentially get damaged by the mini explosions of pops & bangs. Also around 40% of the sound of your exhaust is restricted by your cat, so it wouldn't pop as loud or as nicely as it would without the cat. But if customers still want pops and bangs before cat removals we can still do it for them. for flames we recommend straight through exhaust
There is no evidence to suggest that pops and bangs can damage the engine's internals, as the pops and bangs do not happen inside the engine. When there's 0 load on the engine, and its reving down, some of the unburnt air fuel mixture travels down and comes in contact with the hot exhaust which makes it pop & crackle as they explode. Flame works the same way but with more rich air fuel mixture. Many of the new cars come with overrun pops & crackles enabled from factory which indicates its not harmful for the engine.
Stage 1 is for stock engines without any hardware mods. Stage 2 is for slightly modified engines such as decat downpipe and cold air intake. Stage 3 is for heavily modified engines such as uprated turbos, uprated intercooler, decat, uprated coils and other uprated parts.
Yes as long as you have required supporting mods for each stages. Without supporting mods engine will not be able to perform according to the data request in the ecu's file
In most cases it would be a MOT failure
Yes absolutely ! We specialise in in house live/custom file developing according to owners driving style. Whereas most off the shelf files purchased from data bases/portals by majority of flash remappers only have power higher up the rev range and nothing low down.
Yes in most cases it can be remapped, however the gains wont be much especially for small engines below 2.0. On average of around 10 to 15hp at peak which may not be much noticeable, however on most cars we can enable slightly more low down torque and power to make it more responsive
Yes absolutely ! We offer file service to other remappers in UK and around the world with 24/7 support and guaranteed satisfaction.
Yes, you can be a flash remapper just like 80% of remappers out there, we can train you, supply you the tools and files, you just need to do the flashing.
Yes we also sell damos/map packs for winols for almost any ecu you wish to study. Please refer to our price list
It is absolutely impossible for the data inside your ecu's file to change by it self, even after 500 years, the ecu will still request the same amount of boost, fuelling & torque etc from your engine and its component. Your engine will follow those request according to its current overall health. eg lets say the ecu is requesting 2500milibars of boost from the turbo, the turbo will have no issues producing that amount of boost when its healthy, but lets say after 20 years 200k of use, wear and tear on turbo, so when the ecu still requests 2500mbars of boost, it might just be able to produce only 2400mbars. So when you experience issues or power loss, its usually a worn out component somewhere, the moment you replace it with a new one, it gets it performance back. So its not map data that changes, its the hardware, as all hardware have life span
Yes we can remap the DPF off before you physically remove it to get you out of limp mode. The reason we recommend gutting it is so the dpf doesn't get clogged even further as dpf regeneration will be switched off on the map
Not necessarily, although we do recommend it to blank it off to prevent any exhaust gasses going back into the inlet
Yes, when we delete a Fault code from the ecu, it will not reappear on diagnostics its permanent. we delete fault codes in situations where we remove DPF, EGR, Cat, Adblue Nox etc - we also delete their associated fault codes. We can also delete other fault codes where its not really affecting the performance at all.
Yes absolutely, if you just want pops and bangs or any add ons or deletes ( listed on the tuning options section on home page) alone we can definitely do that for you. If your car has already been remapped else where, then we would need to access your current remapped file and do it on top of it. Most older cars below 2008 we can access the remapped file from the ECU through the OBD port, however most later cars especially BMW and VAG group cars, we would need to bench the ECU to access its file. Alternatively, a brand new remap with your desired options through the OBD port.
