Bench Remapping / Tuning
This form of tuning is a little bit more involved than the usual OBD Form as the ECU (Engine Control Unit) needs to be removed from the vehicle. Once the ECU is safely removed there is a glue that keeps the ECU’s case water tight. We then cut around this whilst carefully opening the ECU to reveal the main board with all the processers and chips etc. Bench tuning has been around for some time now, but the later ECU’s have what’s known as a Tricore processor (explained later).
Bench tuning is relatively simple and in most cases the ECU can be programmed over the OBD socket but is usually removed for other reasons. Sometimes you cannot access the full map data area over the OBD socket, The ECU has failed and needs to be cloned for replacement. Customers also can remove their ECU and post them to tuning companies, so the only option is to program them on the bench. We have full mobile facilities to safely remove your ECU and carry out bench tuning at your home or place of work. We also keep you fully informed. If your ECU needs to be removed, we will let you know when you contact us.
