Back in March we highlighted the fact a number of ‘pop up’ companies are going around offering remapping services. If you’re considering an ECU remapping service you should be aware we have had two customers in the last week who both thought they had their cars remapped by supposedly professional companies.
When the cars were checked on our dyno they were not making a power increase at all. Further checking to the software showed one cars software was 100% original. The second car had some changes made but ultimately the most important settings were missed.
We think that if you don’t know the company you are using it is vital to have your car properly tested on a dyno so all changes can be verified and to make sure you are not being ripped off. We can do run a Dyno Test on any car for €30 which will includ a printout.
Take a look at how ECU Remapping takes place on our 700bhp Bosch Rolling Road. We can set a number of parameters and emulate weather conditions, allowing us to provide the best custom remapping service available.
With a growing number of pop up remapping companies around Ireland, how can you make sure you are getting a professional service?
No.1 Make sure the company you choose uses genuine tools. With a large number of cloned tools going around it is very easy to put yourself in a situation were you car is damaged. These tools can be bought for as little as €70 which means potentially anyone can decide to take up remapping, buying dodgy files off Ebay and putting them in your car.
No.2 Make sure the company you use has their own Dyno so you can be sure the files are tested and good quality. If they don’t have a Dyno, or use of one, how can they guarantee your car is going to be performing normally after the remap.
No.3 Make sure they have insurance and are a registered business.
No.4 Check out their reviews. Previous customers will tell you how good they are.
Lucky for us we tick all the boxes above and can guarantee you a professional service, with all our work proven by our Dyno and our customers. Check out our reviews on Google and Facebook.
