What’s in this file?
The file includes all necessary program modifications to maps etc... to tune the vehicles engine management unit (EMU or ECU) to the specified stage (shown in the product title).
How can I use the file?
Most newer vehicles from around 2006 onwards have read protection enabled by default so the only option available on most tools is to write a file (without taking the ECU out and doing a boot mode read). Don't be fooled by tools quoting virtual reads ect, what this essentially means is that the tool (and software) will read the only thing they can, the ID, from the ECU and then download an original (ori) file from their own database. This is then modified by yourself or you can buy a tuned file from your slave tool dealer for an often much higher price as you’re locked in by your slave tool.Option 2 is to buy from us if you have a master tool and save a significant amount of money. You can then upload the file to the vehicle in question. You can also download one of our tuned files and copy the necessary map changes across to any full reads (OBD or BDM) using software such as winols (yes even 2.24)
What gains will I get from your files?
This one is obviously a lot more difficult to answer but as a rule you can expect anything from 25-40% gains depending on the stage selected. These gains are often dependant on the general running order of the vehicle in question so don’t expect great gains from something that already has faults and drives like it’s going through wet cement.
A remap WILL NOT FIX POOR RUNNING !! and will often make things worse. Please be aware that stage 2 and above generally are not suitable for an unmodified stock vehicle as they require changes to the induction system, exhaust system and often fuel delivery system as well as changes to the drivetrain (better clutch etc...) to make the tune stable.
