What is ECU Remapping/Tuning
ECU remapping tuning, also known as tuning or chipping involves altering the standard parameters in your factory ECU.
This is done by reading out the factory software and modifying its tables using highly specialized software. We then write the software back into your ECU with the changes made.
We always keep a copy of your factory ECU file so we can revert back to the factory program at anytime should this be required.
What is altered?
A variety of parameters can be changed and fine-tuned to achieve the result ‘you’ require. We can change fueling, injection settings, torque limits and targets, boost pressure and a host of other specifications.
What we change really does depend on your specific requirements for the machine. Truck Tune Australia will not just raise settings in the ECU file, instead each one is calibrated in details to achieve the desired result.
Even the smallest of changes can result in significant gains in performance or fuel savings.
What makes it safe?
Modern trucks are controlled by many computers, they control everything from air fuel ratios to torque output. We work with these computers rather then installing a piggy back box influencing sensor signals. By working with the factory computers we can safely increase power, torque and more often then not improve fuel economy and productivity.
Many manufacturers will use the same engine and ECU but change the mapping on the ECU to produce more power or torque, essentially we are doing what they would do but at a much lesser cost and actually changing your mapping to suit the job you are doing.
Due to many 1000′s of hours of testing our products and services we have fully warranty on all of our products. This does not replace your factory warranty.
Will my tractor be out of service?
Most of the time we perform all work on site so the tractor is not out of action for any time at all.
We have dealers that service most corners of the country! Using the latest tooling and hardware we are able to perform the upgrades on the vast majority of vehicles without needing to remove the ECU.
