Many diesel tuners adelaide | Willys Workshop owners are looking to get the most out of their vehicles. Unfortunately, manufacturers are often overly conservative in their engine outputs and this limits performance. Professional tuners can unlock the power potential of these Toyota engines by making a few basic changes in the vehicle’s ECU. The results are astounding, allowing drivers to enjoy more power and torque without compromising safety or fuel efficiency.
Greening Up the Diesel Act: A Comprehensive Guide to Eco Tuning
There are literally dozens of ‘chips’ available online for between $80 and $280 that promise glorious diesel horsepower and torque gains. These so-called chips all plug into the Common Rail Pressure Sensor and ‘piggyback’ signals from this sensor to alter commands to areas of the engine like boost and fuel pressure. The problem is these chips don’t address a whole bunch of other issues that could result in over boosting and straining the engine, resulting in soot, high exhaust temperature, over fueling and more. A ‘Tune’ or ‘Engine Remap’ on the other hand actually addresses all of these systems and gives the ECU new instructions using the accurate real time information that comes from your vehicle’s sensors. This is much safer and far more effective than a chip.
A reputable tuner will extract and copy the original file from your vehicle’s ECU, then they’ll start to make adjustments. This will include modifying things such as the boost curve, fuelling and ignition timing. They will also match your engine remap to the modifications you have on your vehicle, such as a larger airbox or snorkel, to ensure that you get the best possible outcome. Finally, they’ll run your car on a dyno to test the results and check for safe operation of the engine and other systems.
