M B JARVIE – REMAPPING GLASGOW SPECIALISTS


M B Jarvie Remapping Glasgow will optimise the performance of your car, whilst improving drivability. Engine tuning, for petrol or diesel engines, will change your driving experience. But why? Manufacturers nowadays build in limitations to your vehicle’s engine management programme, ultimately restricting its performance. There are many reasons for this. It is cheaper for a Manufacturer to make one engine and then fit it to several different vehicles. The engine’s power and performance output is altered with different engine management programs (software) to suit the different vehicle models. Another reason Manufacturers limit your engine’s performance is to allow for the inevitability that some drivers will not adhere to the recommended service schedules or fill up with poor quality fuels. Now for the good news. This is where engine tuning and remapping comes in. Via engine remapping, working with the margins left in place, we are able to remove the Manufacturer-inbuilt limitations of your vehicles engine management programme. So if you want the best from your car you need an engine ECU remap. Just contact us at M B Jarvie Remapping Glasgow and we will remove the limitations from your engine, giving you a more satisfying, exciting drive. Fall in love with your car all over again.

Remapping – A Bit of Background

M B JARVIE – REMAPPING GLASGOW SPECIALISTS


You may have heard a few of the terms mentioned here before. Let’s start at the beginning with a bit of background. After the introduction of the engine ECU (electronic control unit) in the early 1990s, the process of “chipping” was born. The on-board engine ECU is responsible for controlling critical aspects of the engine’s operation, including ignition timing, fuelling, plus other parameters throughout a vehicles full range of speeds and loads. Chipping, and now ECU remapping, allows us to alter the way the engine is controlled, ultimately giving you an enhanced driving experience.  M B Jarvie Remapping Glasgow develops a completely unique, optimised ECU remap for each car we tune. No two remaps are the same. TDI engine tuning is different from a GTi remap. A turbo diesel remap for one car cannot simply be copied applied to another. This also applies to petrol engine ECU remaps. The number of variables in the ECU remap process extend far beyond basics like make, model, fuel type and vehicle configuration. M B Jarvie Remapping Glasgow, working with ZipTuning, provide bespoke, performance-optimised ECU remaps for your make and model of vehicle. Our remaps are developed to lift your engine’s limitiations and optimise your vehicle’s performance with a focus on safety and reliability. In the majority cases the vehicle’s remapped file can be applied via the car’s on-board diagnostic socket (without the need to remove or open the ECU – the ECU is not disturbed in this case.). We always carry out an extended road-test on remapped vehicles before readying for collection to confirm everything is operating as intended.

Remapping FAQs

M B JARVIE – REMAPPING GLASGOW SPECIALISTS


As part of our remapping service, when the vehicle enters our workshop, we carry out a number of preliminary checks before giving the “all clear” for engine remapping. We will carry out a road test to confirm the vehicle does not display any drivability issues. We also complete an engine diagnostic scan to confirm engine health. If we find issues that we recommend are addressed prior to carrying out engine remapping, we will contact you with a report. These preliminary checks are included in the cost quoted for your specific vehicle.
If you haven’t been doing this already, following engine remapping it is strongly advised that you:

  • use quality fuel
  • change your vehicle’s engine oil & filter annually (at the very least)

As with any vehicle modification, you should inform your insurer of any modification to your car’s performance. Our customer feedback reports that insurance premiums frequently remain unchanged. We have, to date, never had a request to restore modified engine software to standard.
If the dealer overwrites your vehicle’s ECU, M B Jarvie Remapping Glasgow will supply a new remap free of charge. However, if this involves removing the ECU, a labour charge will apply depending on ECU accessibility.
Most of the time, no. Some manufacturers may be able to tell that something has changed, but not necessarily what.
Every situation is different, but if you have a turbo-diesel, in like-for-like you should typically see an improvement in economy of upto 10%. We cannot make claims for potential economy improvements for petrol-engined vehicles, but in like-for-like use the economy should not be any worse.
Yes. All our remaps are written to remain legal and pass current MOT emission requirements.

If you’re interested in getting the most from your engine, safely and without the need for additional modifications, click below and take a couple of minutes to submit a Remap Quote Request. Please note: Given the vast number of different ECUs installed in modern cars, sometimes the only way to confirm the correct ECU type, in order to provide an accurate remap quotation, is by visual inspection. If we need to see your vehicle we’ll let you know. In the mean time please fill out the form, including as much information as you can.

Want an Oil Service First?

M B JARVIE – REMAPPING GLASGOW SPECIALISTS


There is never a bad time to renew your vehicle’s engine oil and filter. If your wondering when your vehicle’s engine oil and filter was last changed, doing this before engine remapping is a great time to do it. Select your brand below for more information.
