ECU Remapping

In simple terms, car remapping sometimes referred to as ECU tuning or Chip Tuning, is where the settings on a car are modified & tweaked based on the owner’s preferences. With a computer to hand the owner is able to customise how exactly the engine operates, dictating exactly what they get from the car. This, of course, has to be within legal limitations.

What Exactly Does ECU Remapping or Chip Tuning Do?

Now that we understand what Remapping is & how it is simply carried out. We can dive a little deeper into how ECU remapping can actually benefit & enhance your motor:

Increase in power – One of the most common changes of ECU remapping is to increase the power capabilities of the motor. This will allow the driver to accelerate much quicker, seeing an increase in 0-60 & overall top speeds. This will generally increase fuel consumption due to a noticeable increase in output.

Increase in responsiveness – Although speed & power is a common motive for ECU remapping. Some drivers take advantage of altering the settings to allow for better fuel efficiency. This is down to the drivers being able to reduce the number of gear changes required to overtake & perform other driving situations which require torque & horsepower.

Sydney Diesel Tuner's use a range of ECU tuning software to ensure we create the best possible custom remap for you and your vehicle, all of which are tailor made to your vehicle. Our ECU chipping files are custom written for our customer’s exact needs, meaning they aren’t just a generic tuning file but are truly bespoke to you, your car, and, most importantly, the driving experience you want.

Should I Remap My Car?

Is it safe to do? Is Chip Tuning the same thing? Is it good or bad for your car? These are some of the most common questions asked when it comes down to remapping. In short, remapping is great for those who primarily want to get the best out of their car. By this we mean increasing horsepower, increasing performance & optimising for efficiency. Let’s look a little more closely at some of the questions you may have:

Can remapping damage your engine? – No. Not if done correctly. If the remapping is done by a trained professional then your engine will be perfectly safe.

Can it be done to all cars? – Not necessarily. We often find that cars built before 2000 are simply just too old and therefore do not possess the ability to be ECU tuned.

Diesel Tuning

Diesel tuning is very popular because of how well diesel engines respond. When it comes to remapping diesel engines, we can offer economy and performance remapping or even a mixture of both. An effective ECU remap will breathe new life into your diesel car.

But Sydney Diesel Tuner's specialism goes further than just standard car remapping, with our expert diesel ECU remap offering a large increase over stock power, it’s also very popular for fleet operators, as it vastly improves fuel economy.

At Sydney Diesel Tuners, we specialise and offer all areas of Engine Remapping, Vehicle Tuning and ECU remapping – Diesel engine tuning is incredibly popular due to the very positive way that the diesel engine respond to tuning, very significant gains can be delivered in power, torque and fuel economy and, almost all vehicles with a diesel engine can be tuned in this way.

Diesel engine tuning can be specifically carried out to meet the driver’s needs, be it outright power, outright fuel economy tuning, or to account for the vehicles use, load bearing, i.e. towing or for tuning and modifications.


DPF Rectification

DPF Management is a controversial matter and there are some very important considerations for you to take before having this service.


Sydney Diesel Tuners can carry out DFP rectification tuning and DPF removal. However, please be aware DPF removal is for off-road use only.

DPF Cleaning and Servicing If you are having issues with your DPF filter you may want to consider cleaning your DPF filter, with our in-house DPF cleaning service. 

Diesel Vehicle Remapping at Sydney Diesel Tuners

Sydney Diesel Tuner's DPF rectification software and services can be combined with our various ECU remapping programs, and because our tunes are tailor made uniquely to your vehicle we can combine your DPF rectification software with other tuning services to include:

High performance tuning and ECU remapping

Fuel saving remapping and much more

In its standard form low mileage or city driving can lead to the DPF filter blocking up, which can be an expensive repair. To reduce the chances of this happening you may be able to remove or rectification DPF functions, allowing for improved reliability, servicing and performance (subject to legal requirements).

EGR Rectification

Exhaust gas recirculation works to minimize pollutants by recirculating a portion of the exhaust back through the engine. 

But because of all of the issues associated with the EGR, many operators opt to have it rectified. An EGR rectification consists of directing your ECU to remove the system from operation. The benefits include an improvement in engine performance, fuel economy and not having to worry about emergency maintenance on the EGR (or even the engine itself). Because particulates, soot and debris can accumulate over time when they’re recirculated back through the engine, the engine may require more maintenance than one that doesn’t work with an EGR.

The removal of your EGR is recommended for off-road use only.


Petrol Tuning

As you know, car manufacturers release vehicles with different power ratings, all with the same engine. The power that the engine delivers depends entirely on the vehicle’s electronics and on-board software.

So if you don’t get the maximum power out of your engine, you’re depriving yourself of something you already own. Does that sound right to you? We don’t think it does. That’s why we’ve come up with a way to help you get the most out of your engine. 

We pride ourselves on making tuning products that are safe and reliable. We’ll never exceed your engine’s in-built reserves.

Improved performance and reduced fuel consumption.

In today's uncertain financial climate you will almost certainly welcome the opportunity to save money at the fuel pump. Most drivers would agree that a car that is both more responsive and leaner on fuel can only be a good thing.

Our Petrol Tuning delivers:

  • Increased engine response across the power range.
  • Smoother delivery of power and a cleaner overall ride.
  • A more responsive and powerful engine when you need it most in overtaking situations.
  • Up to 35% more power.
  • Up to 15% better fuel economy.
  • Increased torque.
  • Lower CO2 emissions

We carefully analyse and match the tuning with your vehicle making sure that you get the best improvement from the remapping process. Most vehicles will see a positive upswing in performance from just a remap.
