What are the performance gains for my vehicle?
Please complete the vehicle request form on the ECU remapping service
page of this website and we’ll come back to you within 24 hours with details.
Are there any risks? Are you insured / Is your work warranted?
There are two parts to this question.
Firstly our workmanship – All our technicians are highly skilled and trained using only the best equipment to protect your vehicle from the risks of damage during the ECU remapping process. Saying that we would not take any risks with your vehicle so for piece of mind UK Carbon Cleaning guarantee to you that all our technicians are fully insured.
Secondly – Can a remap damage your vehicle? If the code is altered correctly no! No two vehicles are the same therefore it makes no sense that generic code should be supplied even for same model vehicles. We only supply custom remaps and all our code is written within safe modification limits. We will not push beyond the boundaries of your vehicle engines capability. Sticking to these rules means we can categorically state that our remapping is a safe option. However, it is important to understand that increasing the performance of a vehicle does increase responsibility. Simply put more power = more stress on the engine’s components. Like any other supplier, we cannot be held accountable for such circumstances. With this in mind, we do ask all clients to sign a disclaimer that they understand and accept the associated risks. If you have any further questions regarding this your local technician will be happy to answer them.
How long does it take to remap a vehicle?
The actual remapping service usually takes between 30-60 minutes. However, there can sometimes be a short delay in receiving the updated ECU file from our coders, therefore, we recommend allowing 2 to 2 and 1/2 hours including a test drive time to be on the safe side.
Does remapping invalidate my warranty?
Yes. If you’ve been told or heard different elsewhere you’re unfortunately been lied to. Car manufacturers make painstaking efforts to clearly state that unapproved modifications to any components will void their warranty. For remapping, this will cover the engine including turbo or supercharger, clutch, and gearbox.
Can the manufacturer check if a vehicle has been remapped?
Yes but generally the dealerships do not have in-house tools that would be able to detect if your vehicle is remapped. However, should your vehicle experience a failure (eg. a gearbox issue) that would require an expensive repair it is normal for the OEM manufacturer to assess your ECU (engine computer) and would almost definitely find the remap. In such circumstances, your chance of a warranty claim being processed positively would be very slim.
Can you take the remap off my vehicle for warranty work?
Yes, this can be arranged at an agreed cost with your local technician.
Can you supply dyno charts of remapping results?
Some of our local technicians have teamed up with local dyno units and will be able to supply this service. Please contact your local technician to find out if this is available in your area and at what cost.
Do you do offer live dyno mapping?
It’s a myth a standard production car with a standard ECU can be programmed on the dyno or even on the road, this option only applies to aftermarket ECUs. A vehicle with an OEM ECU can only be programmed with a stationary engine.
Are there any discounts?
Yes, we offer multi-service and multi-vehicle discounts.
