Can this be done on a Swift? What would the palpable changes one could expect during daily city driving?

Also curious to know abt any fallback measures were the remapped ECU to malfunction while driving . I know abt EEPROMS not having any moving parts and other fundamentals from my Engineering days.

even if the ECU could possibly feed the car wit more fuel or more air for that matter wouldnt you have to go in for bigger intakes and injectores.......even then i dont think we're looking at more than 10bhp increase in output.......max.

i know ford rocam said something like this b4.....but still people wanna chip their accords and 1.6 palio's.

jus my 2 cents......
hi , bits of what you say are correct. not to sure of the waste of time bit,yes the returns [bhp increase] is higher from a turbo d vehicle [ increased boost& ing timing] but kept in moderation your turbo is safe as long as your oil change intervals are shortened proportionatly. my tdi now runs 21psi[with larger nozzels] and have had no probs at all, just wide grins.as i said earlier my palio[non turbo] give me lesser effects of a remap compartivly[10-15% palio,25-30% octy].

hi air870...... i didnt mean to put anyone off by saying waste of time..... but ECU chipping and remaps cost about 500 euros as we have seen thats like 25000INR not including the delivery charges and the fact ur car will be put off operation for a while!..... u could get a Free flow, polished and ported heads along with a good intake system with the downpipes and everything for that price. i'm sure all the above mods would give u at least 15% increase in power....if not more. and these are easily available and easier to diagnose(if ur having trouble).

the octy for sure must be having u grin from ear to ear!!! thts one astonishing car!! its quick, poised and comfortable all at the same time!! and now with a ECU remap ....... must be goin wild!!!

P.S are u sure shortened oil change intervals will save your turbo from frying too soon with the ECU remap? i didnt know about that.

I dont think any of you guys would spend 20-25 grand for 7 to 8 BHP,right?

the ecu remap costs [300 euros for the palio and 400$ for the octy] under 500 euros. shipping and handling should be around 30 euros and 25$ respectivly. the ecu remap is usally the last thing in your list of mods as all the earlier work has to be factored into the remap, hence the engine breathing[intake,port/polish and exhaust] have already been done earlier. as far as the oil change bit, any mod that stresses your engine requires attention to parts that are likely to be at their limit. a little TLC helps. with over a 40% increase over stock in the octy one better be very carefull.

If its Pete's box that you wanted, then you need a diesel car.
I think he can remap your car's ECU though but wont be worth price-wise. There are people who does remap and sort.

Start with air-filter,header and sort which are wallet friendly when you compare it will remaps.

I have a 2007 Swift VXi (petrol) and done Wind CAI at Petes. When I asked him about the ECU, he told he doesn't have anything other than Wind for Petrol Swift (No ECU work). I don't think he has ECU upgrade for small petrol cars. Anyway get in touch with him at petes.in and send a query.

What you guys don't seem to figure out is that Pete's only offers ECU Remap for Skodas and Merc's and other international brands. Thats because these cars are originating from abroad and already have tried and tested engine remaps from dozen of tuners.

They are not outright ECU tuners who will sit down with your car and remap no matter what the model is. They are only remapping cars with engine maps received from Custom Code, and that means they can only cater to those cars for whom Custom Code creates engine maps.

P.S. The above statements are not meant to disturb anyone's business deals but purely for educating the public. The job done by Pete's is highly commendable as they are responsible for the boost in Indian Car mods scene.

Default ECU upgrade question..new and happy to be here

Anyone with interests in ECU mods? I have a swift diesel and an older 540i that I would like to upgrade from the stock performance. Can anyone recommend a shop or an expert who can do this without any physical mods? but just help with firmware upgrade? Thanks

Did you mean sending them the ECU and they will retune and send it back to us... I would defenitely like to know how you did it. Please share some more info on this...

OK may be a bit off topic. I replaced my O2 Sensor on my Ford Ikon 1.6 today because it was damaged. But i do not see any difference at all. After enquiring with my mechanic he said that i need to run for around 50 kms before the ECU is rightly mapped. Is this the case?

OK i just saw a different thread reg ECU reset. Mods can you please post this question there?

HI Guys,

You might also want to consider a remap from Zakie Ismail of Tuned I-Chips who offers remaps for almost all cars Petrol or Diesel.

Default Remapping my Baleno

Can we remap the baleno 1.6 motor. or any other mods that are not too expensive but increase the power without affecting the mileage. If so please specify a shop at trivandrum, kerala to get this done.
