All modern vehicle engines have their tuning controlled by an ECU (Electronic Control Unit), a small computer that receives information from multiple sensors on the engine, transmission, braking and other operating systems to equate engine tuning parameters at around 200 times a second. They are constantly monitoring and adapting themselves to your driving style and requirements.
EXCLUSIVE TO PACE AUTO WERKS – The new VIEZU Performance and Fuel Economy Tuning Technology
Almost all engine ECU’s are dumbed down from the factory to compensate for poor quality fuel and poor servicing (ie: blocked filters, worn spark plugs etc). By re-mapping the ECU operating parameters to maximize your engines potential, fantastic gains can be made in the vehicle’s torque, power and general drivability.
The benefits of re-tuning your engine ECU include:
- Improved power and torque
- Greater engine flexibility
- Increased fuel efficiency
- Smoother throttle response
About the ECU tuning Process
The process itself occurs over a two day period. Firstly, the information is downloaded from your vehicle’s ECU and, along with a general report on the engine’s condition, is sent away for software remapping. The next day we will receive the vehicle specific remapped software to upload into your car.
The cost varies depending on the make and model. You will recoup your initial outlay in the years to come in both fuel economy and driving pleasure. The tunes are tailored to remain well within the manufacturers’ design parameters so no engine damage will occur, however it may expose any weak points needing attention.
