With the changing times, not only the methods of building cars change but also the methods of maintaining and servicing them.
Car manufacturers have started using computers to control the functionality of various components. The tuning box or chip is replaced by an engine control unit which is placed under the cover that is closed to the internal diagnostic connector.
The software is installed on the car engine control unit which controls the entire mechanism of the car, including fuel consumption and energy efficiency. You can experience the multiple benefits of remapping in your diesel engine.

To improve vehicle performance, mechanics must now rewrite or adjust software settings installed in the vehicle engine control unit. Changing the engine control unit is the process of improving the performance of any vehicle by simply installing or rewriting the program.
Installing a tuning box or chip is the easiest method which does not require any experience. Someone with poor mechanical skills could install a new tuning box or chip in your car.
While realigning the engine control unit requires a mechanic who is familiar with the use of a computer to program the software with new parameters resulting in improved vehicle performance.
Whether you are changing the tuning box or rearranging the engine control unit, it is important that your car is properly serviced from time to time and drives the car to the standards set by your mechanic.
