ECU Remapping Products and Services

What's ECU Remapping ?

When we remap a vehicles ECU we are fine tuning the maps that control the engines performance.
As well as producing more torque and power we also solve drivability problems such as low rev ranges that have flat spots and hesitation issues giving the engine much more torque which also results in a more responsive and enjoyable vehicle to drive overall.
All of our MAPS are custom tuned to each vehicle so all data specific to the vehicle is kept.
No generic maps are used by KEE Automotive ECU Remapping and all maps and files are custom designed for your vehicle.

Will ECU Remapping affect my vehicles warranty?

The methods we use to remap a vehicle are often virtually undetectable.  
Any diagnostic test that a dealer may make should not report any differences, and we even give a Lifetime software warranty to you.
If you have any concerns either before remapping or taking your vehicle in for warranty work then please talk to us to discuss first.

What warranty do you offer ?

 - Lifetime software warranty
 - In the unlikely event you feel remapping has caused a drivability problem with your vehicle bring it back to us and we will fix it free of charge.
 - If you can demonstrate remapping has caused a problem that we cannot fix we will put your car back to standard and refund you.
 - Please remember if you just change your mind we can put the remap back to standard free of charge but will not offer refunds.
 - Guaranteed better fuel economy in turbo diesel vehicles.
 - For DPF filter removals we cannot refund or refit the DPF filter once it has been removed
 - Very occasionally DPF software removal can be problematic, if your DPF light comes back on bring it back and we will reprogram
using the very latest and updated software removal tools.
 - The maximum limit of our liability will be the original purchase cost, we will not accept liability for consequential losses in any circumstances.
 - In summary we want happy customers and will will do everything in our power to ensure you leave us as a happy customer.

Will the life of my engine or the components be reduced?

Not at all when using KEE Automotive ECU Remapping.
Sadly engines can often be over tuned, “straining” the engine, components, etc, and reducing the life and reliability of you car or van.
This is why it is vital to choose the best – choose us.
We take extra care to ensure all of our remaps have no effect on your car or van and we only increase performance to within the safe parameters of the components of the vehicle.
In many cases the economy tune will actually help to extend the life span of components in the vehicle by making the power delivery much less aggressive and smoother.

Economy Remapping - How does it save me Fuel ?

More and more of our customers are asking for Economy remaps for their vehicles but also ask us
" How does this save me fuel ? "
With an economy remap we optimise and increase the engine torque and power in the low and mid engine speed range.
This increased torque allows the driver to change into a higher gear earlier or to maintain a higher gear for longer before down shifting.
This gear change strategy is generally know as " Short Shifting " and has been proven many times in the vehicle certification emission laboratories to save fuel.
Any driver who can short shift will save fuel but are often prevented from doing so by the power limitations of the engine.
With our Economy Remapping service these power limitations are significantly reduced allowing the driver to short shift as driving conditions allow.

How Much Can I Save ?
For Turbo Diesel vehicles typical savings are between 10% and 20%
For Turbo Petrol vehicles typical savings are around 10%
Non turbo vehicles have less potential but you could still save around 5%

To calculate your savings simply deduct up to 20% off your annual fuel bill and this will be how much you could save
Case Study - Assume 20,000 miles per year at 45 MPG with Diesel at £1.20 per litre.
20,000 miles equates to 444 gallons of fuel = £2419 fuel cost.
20,000 miles with a 20% savings equates to 355 gallons of fuel = £1935 fuel cost.

*** Fuel Saving per year = £484 ***
With our remapping service starting at only £200 inc vat this means you could recoup this cost within 5 months with the fuel savings you have made

Should I tell my Insurance company?

Whilst ECU Remapping is generally undetectable, the legally correct answer to this has to be “yes”, you should inform your insurance company.
 However many customers report back that their insurance company did not penalise for the ECU Remap particularly those that opted for the Economy Remap.
