Alfa Romeo vehicles can be modified to improve their performance. The methods we use - chip tuning or remapping - alter the data stored on a computer chip located in the Engine Control Unit, or ECU. The modifications result in improved performance, better MPG, and a smoother, more powerful drive.
Remapping involves reading the data stored on the ECU chip and changing it to better the vehicle's performance via the OBD/OBDII port. Remapping can be done on Alfa Romeo models dating from 2000, while chip tuning is a similar performance-enhancing process performed on pre-2000 models.
Chip tuning requires the removal of the ECU from the car and then changing the data in the ECU to improve the vehicle's efficiency. Depending on the type of engine in your Alfa Romeo, you can receive performance gains ranging from 15 percent to 30 percent over the initial performance. Performance gains from chip tuning and remapping are the same. The only difference is how the alterations are accomplished.
