|Today's cars have changed so much over recent years, with the advent of car ECUs that take control of all aspects of car management, from the maximum power and torque an engine delivers to its economy and driveability. Whilst the huge advances in technical management of the way your car drives have made it far simpler for the consumer, it also means that tuning cars has become a far more complex task involving many small variables that can effect the ways in which your car performs. Thankfully Autotech Engineering are at the forefront of engine management or ECU tuning and offer a vast array of products that are designed to maximise the performance and economy of your vehicle in both stock and modified form.
Cars are usually manufactured with their stock ECU settings made to suit highest point of stress tolerance, meaning that they have conservative settings for power delivery and often run the engine 'rich' to deal with variances in climate and 'worse case' conditions that the may encounter. Because of these highly conservative' restrictions placed on the engine, simply re-tuning the ECU can deliver a good increase in engine performance and increase in fuel economy while still keeping the car well within the boundaries of safe operation.
Similarly, if you wish to increase the performance of your car with an aftermarket exhaust, or perhaps a turbocharger, you will need to re-tune your ECU with new settings to increase its performance and optimise its settings in line with the new components you have installed. Autotech's ECU tuning options can help you do this. Autotech offer a wide range of ECU management options from 'piggyback' computers that work together with your car's ECU management system, or full replacement ECU systems that manage all aspects of your car and replace its factory system. With any of the following ECU management systems installed, your car can see a new lease of life and performance with a simple re-tune to the stock factory car, or more advanced tuning together with a wide range of replacement or add-on components including exhausts, turbochargers and many other items you can read about on this website.
