Bespoke Engine Performance & Economy Remapping
Only £199 inc vat
Did you know that you can boost both the power and fuel economy of your car? Simply by altering the settings on the engine control unit? It’s a process called ‘remapping’ – and it’s all the rage among petrolheads.
Bespoke Engine Remapping
At Burch Motor Works we have invested in the latest software & hardware to allow us to Remap most vehicles through the ODB port! Previously the procedure was ECU removal & circuit board probing, making a remap more time consuming & expensive. With the OBD remapping process, we can now remap your for only £199 inc vat. This covers most vehicles from 2009 onwards, not just BMW & MINI!

What is engine ‘remapping’ – and is it worthwhile?
The engine control unit (ECU) is basically a computer that controls how the engine works, a bit like a brain.
But the default settings – or maps – are not necessarily the best they could be, as manufacturers who sell their cars around the world have to take into account different climates, fuel qualities and laws when they program the software.
Fortunately in the UK, we have very good refined fuel quality & nice thick dense, cool air meaning remapping to vehicles here is very reliable and performance increases are noticed!
Car makers are also known deliberately to limit the performance of their cars through the ECU so they can release performance upgrades to models at a later date, with just a few software changes.
Remapping is intended to make the most of your car by overwriting the ECU’s default settings with new software which can be programmed to enhance the car’s overall performance.
It usually takes an hour, and modern technology means it’s pretty straightforward, through the vehicles ODB port.
Previously, the process was called ‘chipping’ and involved the removal of the main microchip from the ECU, which was then replaced with a modified chip. Lots of scope for strife in that process.
Power and Economy
You should notice an immediate improvement in the speed and power of your car. The engine will also be more responsive, so it will be easier to overtake, for example. With the extra power & torque, to drive economically takes far less throttle input, which in turn will improve fuel economy. You might also find that you don’t have to change gear as frequently, boosting the number of miles to the gallon.
