Well, the information, security details etc gets leaked from the OE itself in some cases. These tuning companies find their way out. It's not easy to crack everything without the help of some insider

The tool manufacturers and tuners basically hack into OE calibration, modify it by trial and error methods and sell them commercially as "remaps".

From the software POV, it is fairly easy to crack security details etc. And as Dr. Naren mentions, maybe the OEMs dont mind leaking out certain protocols/parameters to the market!! Afterall, warranty and the voiding of it is still in their hands

Plus the marketing of the hidden potential of any particular ECU [That is mod friendly ] is bigger than what one could imagine

It gets leaked by illegal means . OEMs should be well aware that how their calibration is edited and sold commercially as remaps. But as you have mentioned, they won't bother much because they can just void the warranty.

Good news for BMW Owners!

Most of the BMW Fxx series cars had to be bench flashed. ECU had to be opened and in some cases even the board had to be flipped. Good news is that GT Tunerz are able to provide 100 percent OBD solution for these cars, there is no need to open ECU. Only 1 tool in the world is able to do these cars fully by OBD and it has become hot news in tuning forums and groups. GT Tunerz have got those tools and I believe they are the only one to have them in India.

I have finally got the Remap Itch and am planning to do ECU Remap for my 5 Yr old 78k Kms Ritz VDI. I have finalized Wolf Moto or Viezu. Looking at the reviews, the favorite seems to be Wolf Moto. However, i am from Pune and they are based in Cochin. Though they said they make trips to Pune once in 3-4 months.
The main reason i am considering Viezu is because they operate in Pune. So, in case any Issues crop up, they are within reach. Also, Viezu has the Cost Advantage compared to Wolf. 18k vs 25k. Viezu is claiming 20 bhp Power and 45 Nm Torque improvement. Wolf i think 25 bhp and 45 Nm Torque.

Wolf Team is in Pune this weekend. But my Car Servicing is due Dec-end and i would like to do the Remap Post Service. So, it will take maybe 3-4 Months for their next visit to Pune.

Anyone has any experiences with Viezu if they are good enough and reliable?
Or should i go for the tried and tested Wolf?
Suggestions Please...

Viezu is a global brand and they have hundreds of dealers all over the world. They have remapped many Fiat 1.3 MJD's in Pune. It should be good .

Wolf Moto is famous for 1.3 MJD because of switchable maps. But I don't think they have switchable maps for Ritz.

Thanks Naren for the quick response.
Yes, i have confirmed with Wolf that there are no switchable maps for Ritz.
So, for a fixed map, i think Viezu should do fine.
My main concern was their reputation and experience since ECU is a Critical Component and we are making changes to it.
Thanks.

It's a simple OBD flash for 1.3 MJD. Many cars have been remapped and there is nothing to worry. You should be concerned only when it's a rare car / first time for the tuner like my S-Cross 1.6 .
