April 22, 2017 -- EDO Performance is proud to announce our new partnership with Superchips Tuning U.K. to expand the availability of ECU tuning in the United States.
Being fully equipped for vehicle tuning applications, this new relationship allows EDO to become a go-to solution for quick and reliable power upgrades. Superchips Tuning U.K. provides engine control unit (ECU) upgrades to produce more power and torque for a wide range of popular vehicle manufacturers such as (but not limited) to):
The additional power is produced by re-mapping the ECU's settings by changing various settings created by the car's original manufacturer. The company also produces the Bluefin tool that plugs into a car's diagnostic port and allows for re-mapping to be done at home.
How It Works:
Engine chipping came about after the introduction of the ECU. Since the early 1990s, most engines have been controlled by an on-board computer, the engine control unit (ECU), which amongst other functions, defines the ignition timing, fuelling and boost pressure for all given engine speeds and loads.ECU remapping lets us change the way the engine is controlled – and engine tuning gives you a more engaging drive.
Superchips develops a unique ECU remap for each car. A turbo diesel remap for one car will be different from another. And petrol engine ECU remaps will be different again.
Superchips invests extensively in development and testing and brings over 30 years of experience to the job, arriving at the optimized settings for your make and model of vehicle, ensuring that each remap is as individual as the software inside your ECU, safely eliminating those ‘performance compromises’.
In most cases this remapped program is installed electronically and remotely through the car’s diagnostic port; there’s no replacement chip, and ECU itself isn't touched.
