The modern diesel engines used in today’s cars are much more advanced than in the past, these have a variety of sensors each monitoring how the engine is running and which feed into the vehicles engine management computer (ECU). These signals are processed many thousands of times a second to ensure that the vehicle is running correctly.
Car manufacturers make the smallest number of engine variants for different geographic regions. They use the cars ECU to govern the engines power output for the target region where environmental factors such as altitude, climate, fuel quality and emissions targets, all play a large part in the determining the set power rating when your car is built.
As a result, it’s never been easier to boost the performance of your diesel engine without the need for expensive equipment or ANY specialist knowledge.
Our diesel tuning module intercepts the connection between the fuel system sensor and the ECU, this allows us to control the way the fuel is delivered at all points in the duty cycle. We can as a result deliver more fuel intelligently when it’s needed in the RPM range to achieve higher BHP and particularly torque output. This module is NOT to be confused with a remap as it works in conjunction with the manufacturers ECU.
In many parts of the world where we have good fuel quality and relatively low ambient temperatures we can take advantage of the naturally low level of tune in the diesel engine. By actively managing the injection system millions of times a second the tuning unit is able to make precise alterations to the fuel delivery to match the engine load and rev range, this allows us to use more of the under used capacity in the engine cylinders to generate more torque resulting in a much smoother drive.
This additional torque also lowers the usable ‘power band’ which means that you will naturally change gear sooner and stay in a higher gear longer before you have to change down.(this applies to automatics too)
The end result is a vehicle which is significantly more fuel efficient and smoother to drive.
We specialize in the popular towing diesel vehicles especially used for New Zealand conditions. E.g. Ford Ranger, Holden Rodeo, Toyota Hilux, Land rover Discovery, Mazda B60, Nissan Navara and many others.
