If you're looking to maximise your driving pleasure by gaining sharper throttle response, reduced turbo lag along with additional power and torque, then a performance engine remap is the product for you!

Creative Auto performance software is developed to work on a standard vehicle maintaining manufacturer levels of reliability and original service intervals. A performance engine remap concentrates on the following:



  • Maximising safe levels of horsepower.
  • Maximising safe levels of torque.
  • Smoothing the torque curve.
  • Increasing acceleration.
  • Sharpening throttle response.
  • Reducing Turbo lag.
  • Widening the power band.





If you're looking to save money on fuel while still gaining sharper throttle response and reduced turbo lag along with additional power and torque then an economy engine remap is the product for you!  Very popular with commercial and fleet vehicles

Creative Auto economy remap software is developed to work on a standard vehicle maintaining manufacturer levels of reliability and original service intervals. An economy engine remap concentrates on the following:



  • Saving Fuel
  • Increasing lower down power.
  • Smoothing the torque curve.
  • Sharpening throttle response.
  • Reducing Turbo lag.
  • Widening the power band.

How do we do this? Did you know that the engine fitted to your car has actually had its power output intentionally restricted by its manufacturer? This restriction is imposed via programming within the ECU and it is done for many reasons, such as the manufacturer's warranty having to cater for drivers who insist on using sub-standard fuels and whom refuse to adhere to service schedules. It is done for various marketing reasons and it is also often done just to drop an engines power output into a certain class amongst its competitors.

If you would like to have these restrictions removed from your vehicle’s ECU then you have definitely come to the right place. Here at Creative Auto we don’t only offer performance remapping for performance cars, we also offer performance ECU remapping and fuel economy remapping for a whole range of vehicles.

On the 29th August 2012, Autoexpress published a Watchdog article on remapping cars and the following is an extract;



What are the benefits and potential drawback of getting your engine chipped? Auto Express investigates...


If you want more power or economy from your car, it’s worth considering a remap. This alters how the engine works in order to improve performance, and is also known as chipping. We get lots of letters and E-mails inquiring about this, so here we explain what’s involved.

Remaps are made possible by your car’s engine control unit (ECU). This controls the ignition timing, air/fuel mixture and (on turbo cars) boost pressure. It also imposes any speed or rev limits.

A chipping company can reprogramme the car’s ECU to change how it controls the engine and can also remove any limits placed on it. This used to be done by plugging a microchip with new software into your car’s circuit board, but these days, software can be installed using a laptop connected to its diagnostic port.

The gains can be impressive.

Chipping turbodiesel engines can increase economy by seven to 10 per cent, because it adds torque lower down the rev range. This means the engine doesn’t have to work as hard as before.

Many companies offer plug-in kits that are pre-installed with the software upgrade. These allow owners to remap their engines themselves. It means you can restore the car’s factory settings should you wish, plus there’s no need to travel to the company’s premises.

Some people are concerned that remapping could cause problems with their car. But it shouldn’t affect reliability if you use a reputable company ......

..... most cars’ engines are built to offer more performance than they actually deliver. “You find manufacturers launch a car with a set power figure, but then over the life of the model they’ll introduce a few facelifts and performance versions.” 

“They don’t develop new engines for each new version: mostly they limit the performance of the earlier models and then offer a little more power with each new edition. We just release the optimum performance.”

Obviously, you need to inform your insurer of a remap. But you may be pleasantly surprised by its reaction.

“Historically, insurers would run a mile from chipped cars,” ...... “Some still will, but for the most part it’s very different these days. Some will just say ‘thanks for letting us know’; others will have a set fee.”
