Your vehicle’s default settings aren’t necessarily suitable for all your driving needs. But that doesn’t mean you can’t adjust them to your liking. 

Custom tuning provides your vehicle’s ECU (electronic control unit) with new instructions. Tuning is all about the modifications you make that enhance an engine’s performance. 

Some people prefer to handle this work themselves using store-bought tuners, but you really need to know what you’re doing to achieve the best results. 

Who Is Tuning For? 

You don’t have to own a muscle car to appreciate the many benefits custom tuning (or ‘remapping’) provides. Performance custom tuning involves all kinds of improvements using different tools:

  • Custom exhaust stacks and systems can alter the sound and appearance of your vehicle
  • Chip tuning replaces the existing ECU chip with one that has been programmed to modify your vehicle’s settings 
  • Tuned suspensions raise the height of your car for improved performance 
  • Chassis dynamometer testing measures power, torque, and speed while accurately simulating your driving conditions 

With the proper tuning calibrations, any consumer vehicle (or race car) can drive out of the garage with improved engine efficiency and handling. 

Save on Gas

If fuel economy is important to you, professional tuning can help. A few tweaks to the ignition timing can reduce the amount of fuel that is wasted. Whether optimizing your deceleration fuel cutoff, adjusting your transmission calibration, or limiting your throttle response, every little fix makes a difference. However, the money you’ll save depends on your driving style (and many other factors). That’s why visiting a shop that tailors its mechanical expertise to suit your specific requirements is essential. 

Increased Engine Performance

Those who appreciate drivability will love the boost in horsepower and torque they receive by tuning. Adjustments to the air/fuel ratio, ignition timing, and turbo boost pressure deliver a more powerful (and powerful-feeling) automobile with faster throttle response. Depending on your car type and the reports you read, horsepower can be improved by 10% to 50% (or more). Motorists seeking a more exhilarating ride will want to explore all their options.   

Get the Extra Vroom You Crave

There’s nothing like the feeling of sitting behind the wheel of a car with a powerful, rumbling engine. A few adjustments can give your engine’s exhaust note that satisfying mechanical sound that distinguishes your ride from almost everything else on the road. Different mufflers, headers, and the lengths and diameters of pipes used all contribute to the sound of the mechanical symphony playing under your hood.
