Today, the term chip tuning can be misleading, as people will often use it to describe ECU tuning that does not involve swapping the chip. Modern electronic control units can be tuned by simply updating their software through a standard interface, such as the vehicle diagnostic plug (OBD) or directly through the ECU using a boot device manager (BDM). ECU re flashing is the most common form of vehicle tuning these days, it is also the most cost effective option for tuning because it doesn't require use of the dyno as the file has been already been developed through rigorous R&D on the same vehicle on the dyno. Both options when performed by Torque Performance, are non evasive and no soldering is required when re-flashing to prevent ECU damage.
Torque Performance can tune a range of makes and models of vehicles. We are currently working on an update to our website with set upgrade packages and performance figures and prices.
Generally with ECU re-mapping the vehicle becomes more sensitive to fuel types and environmental conditions, so it extremely important that the tune is developed to suit the fuel used and where the vehicle will be operated. All of Torque Performance's tunes have been developed and tested for New Zealand conditions and fuels. Our re-flash tunes are also developed to suit factory vehicles or vehicles fitted with upgrade packages designed by us, so we always recommend vehicles modified beyond this to be custom tuned as there are too many variables that will require additional adjustments.
To find out what performance increases we can offer for your vehicle, please contact us with your vehicle details and budget and will reply with prices and performance figures. If you want to go ahead with booking your tune, you can either contact us or make your booking online through our online booking system.
