This procedure generally involves connecting to the vehicles diagnostic socket and extracting the files contained in the ECU (Electronic Control Unit), re-modifying them and uploading them back to the ECU.
...We can also tailor the re-map to your individual requirements...
Our method will take about an hour or so depending on the size of the file and how complex the modification. We can also tailor the re-map to your individual requirements, for example, increased torque in 3rd gear, better fuel consumption etc.

Most cars today are built with compromise in mind depending in which country they will be used. Heat, fuel grades, humidity etc. are a factor when the manufacturer builds "one vehicle to fit all".
Tax banding also means vehicles are being built to run excessively lean to meet lower tax banding as an encouragement to the customer to buy their product.
By remapping, we can unlock the full potential of the engine's capability.
Diesel cars, especially turbo diesels, respond better to re-mapping than petrol aspirated vehicles although there is still a good gain to be had on these.
In addition to extra performance, you will also get increased torque throughout the gears. A decent (7 - 15%) improvement in economy is also achieved as a desirable by-product from re-mapping.
Results will vary depending on vehicle and engine but we have found in general you can experience up to 25% improvement in torque and BHP.
For specific details of what we can do for your vehicle, please contact us 7 days a week.
All the files we use are tried and tested to give you the maximum gain safely.
The last thing anyone wants is to have engine components scattered across the motorway when you first open up the throttle!
We will always stipulate that all manufacturers' service recommendations are adhered to, and, as always, "red-lining" the revs is discouraged.

If your car is using too much fuel, difficult to start, stalling, misfiring, has MOT exhaust emission failure or engine management light illuminated, then it is in need of a MobileTune.

For specific details regarding the different services, please expand the sections below:
If your engine is due for a service, ask for our special fixed price MobileService which includes the standard Mobiletune plus:
If any ignition or fuelling settings are found to be incorrect during the electronic diagnosis, they are corrected as part of the service.
Take advantage of our low charges with a thorough check over to avoid faults developing in the first place.
Our charges for fuel injection work are a bargain - just compare them with garage charges! Replacing components is expensive so routine maintenance and fault diagnosis can save costly component replacement.
Major component replacements are not included in our fixed charge. However, accurate diagnosis of the fault enables us to outline exactly the work required to eliminate any nasty surprises.
In addition to ECU re-mapping, engine tuning and diagnostics, we provide a number of other services to keep your car safe and secure.

If you have an Air Bag Warning Light on your dashboard not only does it constitute an MOT failure, you may also wonder if your air bags will work in the event of an accident.
Recent figures* show that 171,000 people were killed or injured whilst travelling in cars in a 12 month period. Of these, 150,000 were drivers or front seat passengers.
If your light is on, for a small fee and peace of mind, it is well worth having it checked out.

If your car requires extra keys to be coded, fobs to be tested or immobilisers to be reset, then call Mobiletuning.
We can perform a full diagnostics check and rectification of your immobiliser system and, like all our services, this can be done at your home or work-place.
An ABS warning light informs the driver of a fault with the system and would constitute an MOT failure.
To diagnose the fault, the sophisticated equipment we use will identify the unique fault code and, if necessary, test the component when driving the vehicle.
Don't jeopardise the safety of you and your passengers, have us check it out for a very reasonable price.
All of our services are fully mobile which means we come to you either at your home or workplace.
