Remap
Complicated installation process

ECU remapping requires very specialist software and equipment. It can also require the physical removal of the vehicle’s ECU and more modern vehicles may require the ECU unit housing to be opened.

Even if an remap has been removed it can leave trace counts within it’s history which could tell someone the vehicle has been tampered with.

Remap
Permanent alteration

An ECU Remap is a permanent physical change to the vehicle. It can be ‘undone’ by re-installing the original ECU software but the cost of doing this is often the same as having it remapped to start with, not to mention the trace count as above.
