Is It Worth Remapping Diesel Engines

If you have a turbo-diesel engine, then a remap can make a significant difference in the way your vehicle performs. You’ll see increases in power and torque, as well as improvements in fuel economy and performance. So, if you’re looking to get the most out of your turbo-diesel engine, then a remap is definitely worth considering.

If you’re expecting huge performance increases on a naturally aspirated engine, then you might be disappointed. Although you will see some improvements in power and torque, the gains are usually minimal.

There is a lot of debate over whether or not it is worth remapping diesel engines. On the one hand, there are many people who swear by the results that can be achieved through remapping. So in this blog post, we’ll explore more into diesel remapping and why you might consider it.

What Is Diesel Engine Remapping

Diesel engine remapping is the process of changing the way a diesel engine is tuned to get more power and torque from the engine. This can improve performance and fuel economy, as well as give the engine more oomph to improve drivability and help in scenarios where you may feel confident with extra power.

How Does Diesel Engine Remapping Work?

The new mapping data is downloaded from a computer onto the ECU, and then the ECU is re-programmed with this new data. This is usually done with a specialist piece of equipment, but some garages now offer this as a service.

Diesel engine remapping works by changing the way the engine is tuned. This is done by changing hundreds of parameters on your vehicle’s engine to optimize its efficiency. All of these things changes affect how your car responds and the amount of output power it can generate. For most diesel engines on the road today, you’ll find that they’re underpowered and tuned allowing the engine to gain additional power.

The Benefits Of Remapping A Diesel Engine

There are many benefits that can be gained from remapping a diesel engine. These include:

More power – This is usually the main reason people get their engines remapped. By increasing the amount of fuel injected and changing the timing, you can see significant increases in power.

More torque – As well as more power, you’ll also see an increase in torque. This can be useful for towing or hauling heavy loads.

Improved fuel economy – Although you might think that increasing the power would mean worse fuel economy, this is not always the case. By remapping the engine, you can often improve fuel economy by making the engine run more efficiently.

Better drivability – With more power and torque, you’ll find that your car is much more responsive and easier to drive.

The technician came all the way to Birmingham to do the remap. Gave him the keys and one hour later he gave me a ring (inside my work), and all done. My Jag runs brilliantly now.
