More often than not when an owner brings his Land Rover to JG4X4 for a remap they are looking for more power, torque and fuel economy. This Discovery 3 owner was looking for all 3 plus he asked for an EGR delete.
Remapping or chip tuning is a way of increasing the power output from All modern ECU controlled engines. The ECU’s default program is read from the car then certain operating parameters including fuel pressure, boost pressure, timing and others are adjusted and uploaded back to the ECU.
The main benefits include:
- The engine becomes more responsive with a smoother power delivery.
- Easier driving with fewer gear changes & improved acceleration
- Safer overtaking, increased low-end torque means less throttle is required – which results in fuel savings (most effective on turbo-diesel engines where a fuel saving of 10% is typical but can be up to 20% if driven sensibly!)
