Many people do not know that it is possible to boost the power and fuel economy of a BMW in about half an hour, simply by changing settings on its engine control unit (ECU)? It is called BMW Engine Tuning or BMW remapping, and it is all the rage these days amongst Liverpool BMW enthusiasts.
What is BMW Remapping?
Your BMW’s ECU (Engine Control Unit) is its engine’s ‘brain’. It constantly reads and takes decisions based on the angle of your accelerator pedal, the engine temperature and gas content in the exhaust gases. Based on this wealth of data, it controls the BMW’s fuel pump, so the correct amount of fuel is provided to the engine to balance fuel economy, performance and emissions. BMW remapping optimises these settings for your vehicle, rather than manufacturer’s default settings that are designed for BMWs used for all kinds of purposes, all over the world.
Liverpool ECU Remapping
The Liverpool BMW remapping process used to be called chipping, as it involved swapping a microchip in the BMW with a modified one. These days, the process is done by your BMW specialist garage using a computer interface. First, we read the BMW ECU’s standard map, and then we adjust various parameters such as its fuel pressure and the ignition advance to unlock engine performance. BMW engine remapping improves power and torque, throttle response and fuel economy. The fuel consumption of your BMW reduces because extra torque at lows revs means less throttle input on acceleration and lower revs for any given speed.
