CarHack are specialists in remapping the ECU. ECU remapping replaces the ECU’s default settings and overwrites it with new software designed to optimize vehicle performance. In essence, the program that controls the operation of the engine is reconfigured via the OBD port and the new version is designed for the specific car, specific to the climate and the driver’s setting goals.
The ability to flash directly through OBD has allowed the tuning industry to develop faster processes and CarHack to develop its own software.
