In this part of the remapping practice, we will describe the characteristics of the vehicle by listing version, equipment, model year, traction and type of gearbox. Then, we indicate all the vehicles – even of different car manufacturers – equipped with the same engine or similar version, immediately followed by the detailed specifications of the engine control unit, including the identification data and the versions for the emission classes. Besides we talk about the types of connection with Alientech tools – which are used for the remapping – by indicating the protocols of use, the available functions and giving some practical advice for editing operations. Finally, the structure of the original file is presented by indicating the addresses and the various areas.

Second section:

This part directly addresses the remapping procedure. After a brief introduction, we present the summary list of the maps that will be modified, the Alientech modification method and its specific application to the vehicle in question. By following the wizard of this practical example, you will be able to create a mapping procedure that will ensure high performance and guaranteed reliability.

Third section:

This last part is dedicated to the discovery of the potentialities of this remapping practice: the new increases, compared to the original settings of the vehicle in a precise and detailed chart, efficaciously clarify how effective and surprising this remapping practice is.
