The ECM (Electronic Control Module or Engine Control Module) is a vital component in the operation of a diesel engine. It serves as the engine's brain, responsible for monitoring and controlling various engine functions. The ECM receives input from sensors throughout the engine, such as the throttle position sensor, oxygen sensor, and coolant temperature sensor. It uses this information to adjust real-time fuel injection timing, air-fuel mixture, turbocharger boost, and other parameters to optimize engine performance, fuel efficiency, and emissions.
ECM tuning, also known as engine tuning or remapping, is modifying a vehicle's engine's settings and parameters within the Electronic Control Module (ECM). It involves reprogramming the ECM to optimize fuel management, ignition timing, and other performance-related factors. By adjusting these parameters, ECM tuning aims to improve engine power, torque, and overall performance while enhancing fuel efficiency. Additionally, ECM tuning can result in cleaner combustion, reducing emissions and promoting a more environmentally friendly operation.
The main benefits of an ECM tune are increased HP, better response time, improved engine health, and lower overall fuel consumption.
If you’re thinking about getting an ECM tune on your vehicle, our #1 piece of advice is this: do your research. There are a million home tuners out there that will throw any old tune into your vehicle without checking engine modifications or specifications and output an injector flow rate or incorrect timing code that ruins your fuel economy or wrecks your rig entirely.
We are a small team of professionals (and diesel drivers ourselves) who are trained and qualified to ensure that every truck we tune meets the customer’s needs. Do you want better fuel economy? We’ll ensure the flow rate is adjusted to ensure optimal efficiency. Do you want more power? We’ll fine-tune the trim codes and kick up the HP. The bottom line is, we talk to our customers to find what they’re looking for and then base our work off of that.
Our custom ECM tuning services range from $1500 to $5000.
Tuning Available for: Duramax, Power Stroke, EcoDiesel, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Caterpillar, International, 6.7L, 5L, 7.3L, and many more.
