PERFORMANCE TUNING

Autoplus Racing vehicle performance tuning is a process of modifying the engine and other components of a vehicle to enhance its performance. The goal of performance tuning is to increase horsepower, torque, acceleration, and speed, while also improving the vehicle's handling and overall drivability.

Performance tuning can involve several modifications, such as upgrading the engine, exhaust system, air intake, fuel system, and suspension. These modifications can be done individually or combined to achieve the desired results. The tuning process can also involve software tuning, as mentioned earlier, to optimise the engine's performance.

Some of the benefits of performance tuning include improved acceleration, faster top speed, better handling, and increased fuel efficiency. It's important to note that performance tuning may void the vehicle's warranty and can potentially cause damage to the engine if not done correctly. It's essential to consult with a trusted and knowledgeable mechanic or performance tuning company before proceeding with any performance tuning.

VEHICLE EXHAUST UPGRADES

Vehicle software tuning, also known as ECU tuning or remapping, is a process of modifying the electronic control unit (ECU) software of a vehicle's engine to enhance its performance. The ECU is a computerized system that manages various engine functions, such as fuel injection, ignition timing, and boost pressure. By tuning the ECU software, you can modify these parameters to optimize the engine's performance.

The process of vehicle software tuning involves altering the ECU's software to change the fuel and air ratio, ignition timing, and other engine parameters to improve power and torque output. This is done by connecting a specialized computer to the vehicle's OBD-II port and using software to read and modify the ECU's code. The tuning process is customized to suit specific driving requirements, such as improved horsepower, torque, or fuel efficiency.

Software tuning can also improve the vehicle's drivability, responsiveness, and speed, making it a popular choice for car enthusiasts who want to enhance their vehicle's performance. However, it's important to note that tuning may void the vehicle's warranty and can potentially cause damage to the engine if not done correctly. It's essential to consult with a trusted and knowledgeable mechanic before proceeding with any software tuning. Autoplus Racing has been enhancing vehicle performance and modifications with a dedicated and experienced team of mechanics.

VEHICLE DSG UPGRADES

A vehicle DSG (direct-shift gearbox) upgrade involves modifying the software or hardware of the DSG transmission to improve the vehicle's performance and driving experience. A DSG transmission is a type of dual-clutch automated manual transmission used in some European vehicles.

Modifying the DSG software can improve the shift speed and timing, resulting in quicker and smoother gear changes. It can also optimize the transmission's torque output and shift points, improving acceleration and overall performance.

Upgrading the DSG hardware can involve installing stronger clutches, upgraded gearsets, and improved cooling systems to handle higher power and torque outputs. This can also result in faster and smoother shifting and improved durability.

DSG upgrades can also include enabling certain features such as launch control, shift paddles, and shift lights, among others. However, it's important to note that DSG upgrades should only be performed by a qualified professional with experience in DSG modifications to ensure that the modifications are safe and reliable.

Overall, a DSG upgrade can improve the driving experience of a vehicle, especially for those looking to increase performance and optimize their vehicle's shift performance.

Additional Information - FAQ

Finding information on performance upgrades is challenging. Here is some information on the difference between performance mods and performance tuning.

What is the difference between vehicle performance modification and vehicle performance tuning?

Vehicle performance modification and vehicle performance tuning both aim to enhance a vehicle's performance, but there are some differences between the two.

Vehicle performance modification involves physically altering or replacing the vehicle's components to improve its performance. This can include upgrades to the engine, exhaust system, air intake, suspension, and other parts. Performance modifications can be done for various reasons, such as increasing horsepower, torque, or acceleration, or improving the vehicle's handling or braking. Performance modifications can also include aesthetic upgrades, such as body kits, spoilers, or custom paint jobs.

On the other hand, vehicle performance tuning involves modifying the electronic control unit (ECU) or engine management system to optimize the engine's performance. This can include changing the fuel and air ratio, ignition timing, and other engine parameters to increase horsepower, torque, and fuel efficiency. Software tuning can also improve the vehicle's drivability, responsiveness, and speed.

In summary, performance modification involves physical changes to the vehicle's components, while performance tuning involves optimizing the engine's performance through software modifications.

John Deo

I recently got a DME upgrade on my 2014 BMW 428i 2.0 Petrol-Turbo engine. From my initial phone call to driving out the door of AutoPlus Service Centre the blokes were professional, insightful and very helpful. As a mechanic myself, I am very selective of who I let work on my BMW but after seeing tuning profiles and the increase in performance from my vehicle these blokes have the experience and expertise! I Would highly recommend them.

Larry Gramth

I have been quietly impressed with the remap I had undertaken on my BMW F30 320i. From my initial query to completion of the work was a couple of days. I've not driven a great deal since the work, but I have noticed the car is noticeably punchier and more responsive to drive. The car is now running smoother, a lot quieter with much greater acceleration. I would highly recommend Greg at AutoPlus Service Centre as he was polite, professional, very efficient and knowledgeable. Greg and his team take pride in his work and is very punctual. Love my upgrades.
