What is a Remap?
ECU (factory computer) tuning refers to the process of replacing the original factory installed map used by the ECU of the vehicle to a custom tuned version.
- More power
- Greater Torque
- Better fuel economy
- Enhanced, sharper throttle response
- Smoother, more progressive delivery of power
- Reliable and safe way to power up your 4WD
The gains you will experience is a substantial increase in power and torque by up to 40% that develops a much smoother and more responsive driving experience for your 4WD. Another significant benefit you will experience is a fuel saving of up to 20%. All this extra power, torque and economy are achieved while still staying within the factory safety parameters and backed up by our own Roo Systems warranty.
Do vehicle manufacturers do this? Yes they do
Do you think that there is a difference between the stock/base, mid-spec and the luxury sports model variants of vehicles? Do you think you get a different engine with every facelift of a car?
Manufacturers build an engine and design it to give optimum power and performance, they are governed by many factors including saleability, economy, emissions etc.
The process of remapping a vehicle is usually a one to two-day process (most same day), as every tune is customised to each vehicle and not all ECU’s are identical in the same model vehicles.
ECU remapping is a complex and comprehensive procedure to alter a number of key parameters in the vehicle’s ECU including; injection timing, boost control, fuel delivery and torque limiters to name a few.
Roo Systems has been carrying out research and development for over ten years to refine ECU tuning to suit most of the popular 4WD vehicles and more importantly to suit Australian conditions.
Will this affect my new vehicle warranty?
We do not exceed the manufacturer’s limitations already set up on your vehicle. Because of this, our remap will not affect any other part of your vehicle manufacturer’s warranty.
Does Roo Systems offer a warranty?
Roo Systems provides a 5-year, unlimited kilometre conditional warranty. Our warranty will cover any components that fail as a result of the ECU remap.
What do I need to do to my vehicle after the Remap?
Other than enjoy it, one of our warranty conditions is that you have your vehicle serviced as per your manufacturers scheduled service intervals and use the recommended fuel and oils specified by the manufacturer.
We also strongly recommend, if you use your vehicle in dusty conditions, to please ensure that your air filters and fuel systems are kept clean.
