Car Tuning/ Remapping for diesel and petrol engines
McCormack’s Auto Service -tuning the engine of your car to its optimal performance! Increase power and torque of your engine and reduce fuel consumption.
The Engine Tuning Process
Performance engine tuning, also known as remapping or chip tuning, is the process of modifying the engine’s parameters to get more power and improve fuel economy. In the past, the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) was modified by swapping a microchip with an improved version. Nowadays, those alterations are performed via a laptop by overwriting the existing settings with a new customized software, staying within safe limits.
Benefits of Engine Tuning / Remapping
Performance engine tuning is a complex and comprehensive procedure that can significantly improve engine torque and power, and improve fuel economy. More torque means better throttle response for maintaining the same cruising speed. Other benefits include 20% to 30% power increase and 10% to 20% decrease in fuel consumption. You will notice the difference from the first ride.
A dynamometer or dyno for short, is a device for simultaneously measuring force, torque, and power. The vehicle is driven onto the dyno and we perform a run, evaluating road driving conditions at different speeds, RPMs, elevations and loads. The dyno’s computer generates a graph to show the torque and power that the car produces within a RPM range. We can also gather other data, depending on the vehicle, including air fuel ratio and turbo boost pressure.

Is Engine Tuning Safe For Your Car?
When carried out professionally, performance engine tuning is a safe and harmless modification. At McCormacks Auto Service we enhance and optimise the power of the engine, staying within the factory safety parameters. Also, if you ever need your car put back to original, we always keep a secured copy of your vehicle’s original file settings as a backup. We can easily revert the tuned file at no additional cost.
Why Don’t Car Manufacturers Do It?
Because car manufacturers sell their vehicles on various markets, and their priority is the majority of buyers, they follow the principle of standardization to achieve an optimal balance between investment and quality.
Each country, however, has its own features. This means that a vehicle would be operating in different conditions. That may include different climates, altitudes, humidity, fuel quality, emissions regulations, tax systems, servicing standards, etc. Having all those factors in mind, car manufacturers create generic software for each vehicle. The engine is built to suit the average driving conditions in each country and to minimize the chance of problems occurring. As a result, the vehicles overall performance is not fully optimized.
