Stage 1 remapping is a process that alters the functionality of a car’s ECU. The ECU controls the power of the engine, and can be used to place restraints on how much energy the engine uses.
Manufacturers use the ECU to design the driving experience as they want, or to comply with driving regulations. Using an ECU can extend a car’s lifespan too, as it prevents the engine from being driven too hard. It also prolongs the engine’s reliability – if the engine’s performance is limited in one model, it can be re-used in a later model with fewer restrictions placed on it.
Sometimes, however, this experience is a little too slow for some drivers. This is where car remapping comes in.
Remapping is a complicated process, but in simple terms, it’s altering a microchip in a car engine. This alteration removes the constraints on the engine, meaning we can offer an overall better driving ecperience. Overall, these are the key stages:
“Is remapping a car legal?” is a common question from novice car modifiers. Currently, there is no law against car remapping, but it is recommended to be undertaken by an experienced professional.
The only thing you need to do after remapping is to inform your insurance company of the change.
Sometimes a Stage 1 remap can improve fuel economy too. If a car is naturally faster and performs better, the need to hit the accelerator decreases. This naturally improves a car’s mpg and betters its fuel economy.
Not all remaps concern speed or acceleration, either. Sometimes, a remap can improve handling, making a car easier to drive.
The increased torque can improve a vehicle’s towing ability too, making it perfect for staycations and holidays.
