Achieve Greater Diesel Performance with the Help of Perth’s Infinitech Tuning
When drivers want to achieve greater diesel performance for their vehicles, the first impulse is often to trade out or add new mechanical components. Trading out your vehicle’s cold air intake, exhaust header, catalytic converters or exhaust system for newer, better, more performance-minded components can certainly improve the power and torque of your diesel car or truck. However, did you know that you might be able to achieve substantial improvements without ever even hiring a mechanic or getting your hands dirty?
At Infinitech Tuning, perform Perth diesel performance improvement services, but we primarily do it in non-mechanical ways. Indeed, our team is made up primarily of engineers, not mechanics! Our engineers know how to reprogram (or ‘remap’) your vehicle’s ECU (engine control unit) to provide substantial performance boosts.
Why ECU Remapping Is an Effective Way to Improve Diesel Performance
When drivers first get into the hobby of improving their cars and maximising performance, they are often surprised to learn how much of a performance boost it’s possible to achieve through ECU tuning. At Infinitech, we can deliver up to 40% performance improvements just by programming the control unit, depending on the make and model of the car. We are especially skilled with Toyota ECU remapping, capable of achieving up to 80% extra power and up to 30% fuel economy improvement—all without touching the mechanical components of your vehicle.
So how is it possible to accomplish so much just be reprogramming a computer system in the car? And if such huge performance boosts are possible from a remapping, then why don’t automotive manufacturers perform those optimisations before sending their cars to market?
The answer to the first question can be found just by looking at what the ECU does. In the simplest of terms, the ECU is responsible for deciding how much fuel and air to mix before injecting it into the cylinders. Because the ECU plays the key role in delivering fuel to the engine for use, it also plays a big role in determining a vehicle’s power, torque and fuel efficiency. A Perth diesel performance procedure that remaps the ECU can help control this process more precisely so that your car is smarter about how it mixes fuel and air.
The answer to the second question is a bit more complicated. Essentially, car manufacturers hedge their bets when it comes to performance. A car tuned for optimal performance can have a higher chance of breaking down if the vehicle isn’t maintained properly or if a driver repeatedly fills the tank with low-quality fuel. By using less performance-minded tunes for their cars, automotive manufacturers can improve reliability for these kinds of drivers. If you take good care of your vehicle and use the right kind of fuel, though, you can get just as much reliability out of a remapped engine with a lot more power and fuel economy.
