Here at Velocity Tuning we take pride in producing safe, reliable and also powerful remaps suited to our customers exact needs whether they need more fuel economy from their long motorway journeys or additional power to shave seconds of their PB at Brands Hatch. Most of our business is providing stage 1 and stage 2 remaps for those wanting to release untapped power waiting to be used.
We are able to provide gearbox tuning increasing clamping pressure of the gearbox, increasing shift speed, optimising gear change points and increasing the torque limiters to allow the engine to produce more power without the gearbox interfering.
Here at velocity tuning we are big advocates of water meth injection, the cooling benefits and increases in power available with these systems make them them highly beneficial to modern cars affected by high intake temps or fuelling limitations as commonly seen on BMW & Audi/ VW platforms due to the high pressure fuel pumps being easily maxed.
We provide tuning for those with aftermarket turbos whether that is for your M4 S55 with larger ball bearing turbos or a Fabia VRS PD130 with a GTD1756 turbo and 4bar map sensor.
Whether your work van is capped to 55mph or you want to exceed the 167mph M car limiter we are able to remove this from the cars software allowing the car to reach your desired speed.
For cars with their catalytic converter removed the ecu software also needs adjusting to stop an engine management light appearing.
Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve, This item is prone to failure and causing limp modes. For cars not used on UK roads we can disable this troublesome emissions item.
Diesel Particulate Filter, This is an emissions item placed in the exhaust designed to catch damaging gasses which is prone to failure by becoming blocked and causing reduced power. For off road vehicles this item can be removed and deleted from the software allowing the vehicle to once again run correctly.
Swirl Flaps are placed on the intake manifold and in some cases are best removed as they are known to break and go into the engine causing severe damage. We are able to correct the vehicle software to allow these to be removed.
Most modern petrol vehicles have a loud cold start procedure when initially started to warm the catalytic converter to a temperature where it is more efficient therefore reducing emissions, for cars with no catalytic converter or quiet surroundings we are able to remove the cold start from the vehicles software.
For those not able to travel to us in-house or wanting multiple maps we are able to offer the velocity tuner with full customer support and guidance. This is a handheld tablet that allows you to read your vehicle data at home to then send back to us where we then we can create up to 5 custom maps to fit your needs, for example economy map, cold start off map, race fuel map, burbles map and more aggressive maps for off road use whilst also allowing for us to send updates online for new modifications. The device is small and discreet, can read fault codes, return the vehicle to stock and if you purchase a new car once returning to stock the device can be used on your new car also.
