If part of your business involves running a machine then you’ll know that its performance can directly impact your bottom line. An ECU remap can benefit you on the road and in the field, and financially too. Let’s take a closer look.
How does an ECU remap work?
If you know about your engine then you may already understand how an ECU remap works. If not - here’s the lowdown. When you purchase a truck, bus, ute, tractor or any other machine, your engine is set to work in standard conditions. That’s fine as long as you’re driving on average roads, across average land, in average weather and with average operating conditions. The problem is that not much of New Zealand conforms to the definition of average.
When your ECU is remapped, the settings for your engine are adjusted to suit your environment. Your engine is set up to give you the best performance possible for your working conditions. Here are some of the results you can expect to enjoy.
1. Increased power
A boost of power could be just what you need to get over the hill in a little less time or increase your load by the few kgs that stop you needing to do a second journey. Adding power to your engine is a great way to help you to increase the efficiency of your business. The end result is you should be able to save money by getting the job done faster.
2. Increased torque
Improving your torque is closely connected with your increase in power. By remapping your ECU your torque is increased which will get you moving faster with more power. That’s sure to come in handy for those uphill climbs or tricky journeys through the dirt.
3. More efficient fuel consumption
Because your remapped engine is tuned to your environment, you can expect to find yourself able to do more with less. That means less fuel going into your engine but more power coming out. All businesses welcome the chance to reduce their costs or increase their profit. A remap of your ECU could be a great way to make a little more money by getting the job done.
