Why Choose Ultimate Remaps?
Ultimate Remaps is not just “another tuning company”, we have many years of experience in both electronic & mechanical tuning, and work in partnership with some of the biggest tuning houses across Europe to offer the very best product & service available in the world today.
We give you the choice for the level of tuning you want, be it performance or economy tuning, we are able to meet your exact requirements.
Will re-mapping invalidate my vehicle’s warranty?
There are several ways to upload modified software to a vehicles ECU, however due to our extensive investment in the latest tuning hardware, we are able to re-program 99% of the vehicles we cover via the vehicles OBD port (on board diagnostics) and as such, leave no physical evidence behind for work we have done, leaving it completely undetectable.
All codes and diagnostics that a main dealer may read will remain exactly the same. We say this with confidence because of the rigorous testing regime all our files go through, and we even give a lifetime software warranty to you.
In the case of some pre-2000 Vehicles, Bikes, Trucks, and Agricultural & Marine applications, the removal & re-programming of the ECU direct may be required. If this is the case for the vehicle you want tuning/mapping, we will inform you before-hand. But be warned – not all tuning companies can say this.
Can the process be reversed?
The answer if YES, if for any reason you would like your vehicle returned to its original settings, maybe when you make a decision to sell the vehicle, we can reverse the whole process and this service is offered free of charge. In most cases, the enhanced performance may help to sell the vehicle.
Should you lose the modified software due to dealer actions or parts failure, we will be more than happy to re-install the map onto the car free of charge for as long as the vehicle is owned by you, now that’s a guarantee that only Ultimate Remaps can give you!
Should I tell my insurance company?
Although the upgrade is undetectable, as a responsible company the answer is YES, your insurance company should be notified. However, many insurance companies do not penalise you for upgrades of this nature, particularly if you’re tuning to gain increased fuel economy.
Will my fuel consumption increase after re-mapping?
No, not necessarily. If you choose to have a track map installed on the vehicle and you are driving under the conditions with which a track map is intended, you’re likely to find a slightly reduced mpg figure.
If you choose a performance tune for your vehicle, but continue to drive the car in the same style as you did before the upgrade, then your fuel consumption will most likely improve as economy tuning can have a dramatic effect on fuel consumption, with considerable improvements being achieved along with huge money savings on fuel.
Will re-mapping increase engine wear?
No, not at all with an Ultimate Remaps upgrade. But sadly some engines can be over tuned, “stressing” the engine, transmission, cooling systems, etc. This is why it is really important to choose the right company to complete your re-map.
We take great time & care to ensure that all of our modifications have no detrimental effect on your car. In a lot of cases, the economy tune actually helps to extend the life of components such as the clutch and gearbox by making the delivery of the power far less aggressive and smoothing the overall drive of the vehicle.
How long does it take?
To re-tune/re-map most cars, it can take on average 1-2 hours from start to finish
Are plug and play tuning box’s or pre modified files on the Internet any good?
There are a number of basic power upgrades available in a plug and play format or are downloadable from the Internet. Whilst some of these can offer slight increases in power, they operate by merely adjusting a specified signal within the ECU by a set tolerance, in most cases the fuel pressure.
It’s impossible to compare these inferior upgrades with a full custom re-map based upon your original software, which measures and adjusts hundreds of signals and data files within the ECU.
We advise that these generic files and unsupported devices for sale on the web should be avoided at all cost. We have seen too many customers come to us after having a bad experience – and when there is no one else to turn to either.
We are always happy to advise you on your tuning needs so why not contact Ultimate Remaps now!!
