Remaps in Wakefield
At Art Motor Engineers we offer re-mapping for a variety of vehicles.
We use Evolution Chips to supply us with what we consider the best remaps on the market. Don't trust your remap to a "man in a van tuner with nothing more than a mobile number" .... if you lose your tuner, you lose your original map profile and this can cost thousands to rectify if anything goes wrong.
"Art Motor Engineers have been here for a long time and will continue to be around for a long time to come. This is the ultimate reassurance when it comes to having your car remapped".

We can remap most makes and models of cars, with Petrol, Petrol Turbo, Diesel and Turbo Diesel models giving the best performance increases, both in the Torque and Bhp. This gives the car much better drivability than the usual "factory fit". Of course, what this means in layman's terms is that after remapping, your car will become both faster, more powerful, increased fuel efficiency.
How is this possible? Manufacturers are by law required to add a dip to the power map on your engine between 2k and 3k RPM. This was originally meant to increase fuel efficiency. However, all this has meant in reality is that people just put their foot down more to compensate for this lack in power, using more fuel instead of less! One of the many processes involved in remapping a car involves removing this power dip, making for a smoother power graph as you move up through the gears. This smoother graph means you actually have to change gear less often, therefore increasing fuel efficiency.
Whether you require smoother power delivery, better fuel economy or just a little more "Ummph" Evolution Chips delivers and more.
What do you actually do to my car?
No actual hardware is changed during a remap. We just change the ignition timing, how much fuel and are mixed together and when the turbo kicks in etc. All these settings are stored as maps on your ECU (Engine Control Unit).
The whole process takes between an hour and 90 minutes with testing.
Is there any risk to my car?
Because all the work done on your car is localised to the ECU and is software based, this is a very low risk to your car. If anything goes wrong, we repair and replace. Just a quick look around the internet for "remap disasters" will show what a rare thing it is for anything to go wrong. Millions of cars and vans have been remapped.
Is "remapping" the same as "chipping?"
Chipping is in fact the older method of remapping. Chipping involved removing the ECU and remapping it directly, this came with more of a risk of damaging the ECU when it was removed.
Nowadays, the ECU is mapped in place, without removal. Far less dangerous than chipping.
Does it matter if my car is manual or automatic?
Not really, no. Similar gains can be seen across both gearbox options.
How could my vehicle benefit from a remap?
- More power
- Better power delivery
- Smoother power delivery
- Better fuel economy through petrol and diesel engines
