How remapping your Hyundai Tucson diesel improves engine performance and fuel efficiency

What is remapping? 

Remapping is the popular term used to describe the process of enhancing your engine’s performance and fuel efficiency.

The results you enjoy will depend on the remapping specialists you select and their industry experience.

Your chosen remap specialists will carefully reprogram the parameters of your vehicles engine management software located in the ECU, to obtain the results you want.

You should take great care when selecting a good remapping company, you should choose a company with extensive experience in the industry, with great customer reviews.

What is chip tuning?

Remapping, or chip tuning, is altering your vehicle’s operating system to improve its power and efficiency. You can add more horsepower or torque to your car, truck or van without modifying the engine or supporting components at all.

Remapping is the most cost-effective way of boosting power and fuel efficiency, without spending thousands on new parts.

Can I do it myself?

Your Hyundai Tucson is an excellent vehicle, but to gain maximum benefit from its power plant, you need a professional tuner to improve performance, efficiency and maintain mechanical safety.

If you like working on your own vehicles, there are DIY tuning options available. But it is very risky and you could end up with a bricked ECU.

Unless you know what you're doing and understand safe remapping procedures it is wise to leave it to professional tuners that have the experience, professional tools and backup support required.

Can I remap my car legally?

Most aspects of remapping are perfectly legal, although your insurance company do require you to notify them of any modifications including performance enhancement.

Again it's wise for you to use a professional to ensure you stay on the right side of the law.

Chip Tuning vs Re-mapping

The difference between ‘chip tuning’, and ‘re-mapping’ is a very simple answer.

If you are confused by all of the different acronyms surrounding chip tuning, such as ECU chips (or chips), remaps or re-maps? You’re not alone. 

It can be confusing at first, but once you grasp the basics, it will soon become a lot clearer.

both chip tuning and remapping achieve the same goal which is reprogramming your engine management software, it's simply a different method used.

If you imagine a crosshead screwdriver or flathead screwdriver, they both remove or insert screws, just slightly different tools.

Chip tuning is a more old fashioned method now, while it is a method still used occasionally, it is typically only used on older vehicles.

Chip tuning requires the memory chip inside the ECU to be removed, inserted into a chip tuning device to enable reading and writing of data, hence the term chip tuning.

Remapping normally refers to OBD (diagnostic port) Bench or Boot programming methods, yet the end result would be the same regardless of the method used to access data.

Choosing a Good Tuner is as important as choosing a Good Doctor.

You will be presented with a bewildering selection of companies, all claiming to be the best in the industry. Unfortunately the industry has been flooded with “Get Rich Quick” merchants all desperate to take your money from you. In many cases the “Get Rich Quick” operators have invested in “Cloned” counterfeit remapping tools off the internet. They have little “if any” industry knowledge, experience or liability insurance…

Don’t get sucked in by a good story and what appears to be an incredible price. Instead of taking the word of self-acclaimed tuning experts, a search on google will reveal some very interesting, yet disturbing facts about a few “so called” professionals. Unlike some testimonials “Bert for Bognor says we are Brill” our customers are real people. Don’t take our word for it, ask the people that know best “Our Customers”

I went for a remap on my T5 as it had an awful flat spot around 2800 rev's I got great personal service and its like having a new engine in the van smooth power and greater economy.... Highly recommended wish I'd done it months ago it would have paid for it self already thanks a lot hills are no longer a drag.

Popped in to see Mike on Friday to have my A4 2.0TDi 170hp remapped. Have to say I was a little pessimistic at first having being told by another firm that remaps on these were a nightmare so was expecting the worst! Thankfully, nothing of the sort, straight in, one error message unknown but Mike worked it out and all done in no time. Straight out for a test run and the drive is very different, certainly mid ranged (where these engines seem to suffer) pulls away nicely and can definitely feel the benefit. Best money I've ever spent on a car in, well, forever! Thanks again Mike

Had the ECU my 320D remapped by Mike yesterday. Very impressed with the results. Noticed it straight away after having it done. Service was also great, talked me through all of it to get exactly what I wanted out of it. Highly recommend mpg tuning.

Took my Civic Mk VIII 2.2 CDTI to Mike following a recommendation from a friend who's had his last few cars remapped at MPG., professional service and answered any questions I had. Customised remap that gave me a good balance between performance and economy. Mike was happy to let me watch the whole procedure and explained what he was doing. Makes a good brew as well! Would highly recommend, Will definitely bring my future motors here.
