Using A Battery Support Unit for Remapping and Diagnostics

Unbelievably I see some people in the industry playing Russian roulette with customers vehicles, by not using a battery support unit (BSU).

Why Is That a Problem?
IMO carrying out a remap or diagnostic procedure without using a quality high capacity BSU is one of the major causes of ECU failure.

Of course, we are dealing with computers and as anyone that uses a PC, they can and will let you down at the most crucial times but that aside why take a risk that you have control over?

Therefore, You Should Use A Quality BSU During Remapping and Diagnostics

Simple really, but a surprising number of tuners take the risk just to save a bit of time and money.

If you have chosen a get rich quick amateur “based on the cheapest price” you will find that they do not take recognised precautions and take risks that a professional would never consider.

Quality BSU (Battery Support Unit)

Is essential for OBD remapping, with various remapping tool manufacturers recommend a minimum voltage of 12.5v, with some tools failing to write data to your ECU with inadequate voltage supply.

Without sufficient voltage supply, communication with the ECU can be lost via OBD and the vehicle could end up not starting, in the worst-case scenario, your vehicle might need a new ECU

In our industry, it is common knowledge that many tuners take short cuts and end up bricking (damaging beyond repair) customers ECUs?

In any trade, people will try to cut corners and don't invest in equipment, or follow tried and tested practices that could massively reduce the risk of ECU damage during programming.

Inadequate Battery Support and Possible Results

A battery support unit is designed to maintain a constant voltage to the battery during remapping or diagnostics as failure to do so can cause issues, in some cases death of the ECU.

Modern vehicles draw power whenever the ignition is turned on, but that power draw can be affected by a range of factors including but not limited to radiator cooling fans kicking in during the remapping process.

GYS FLASH 100.12 HF

We use GYSflash 100-12, this provides a 100AMP supply with adjustable voltage, not cheap at £600 but worth the investment to keep customers vehicles safe.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

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.

Adrian McManus

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

Mark Patterson

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.

James Aston

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.

Dan Wright

My boyfriend has exactly the same car as me 1.5 diesel fiesta, had his remapped and was over the moon with it. I had never thought of having a car remap but after driving his, mine felt heavy and slow so decided to get mine done too, now I am converted I love it even more and I am getting about 80-90 miles per tank better than before, very happy , great friendly service and awesome cuppa while we waited
