As one of the nations leading dealers in vehicle remapping we have invested in remapping hardware that will allow us to remap virtually any vehicle. In general there are 2 types of remapping process. The majority of vehicle can be remapped through the vehicles OBD (diagnostics) port, although some later vehiclesAudi, BMW and Mercedes may require a Tri-core remap. We are also able to remap most vehicles from Japanese/Korean manufacturers.

Please speak to one of our experienced technicians who will advise you which process is applicable to your vehicle.


By utilising your vehicle diagnostic port we will download your vehicle engine map directly from your ecu. Elite Remaps technicians will then use state of the art software to customise your vehicle map to your exact requirements. We will then re-install your custom remap straight to your vehicle. The process is quick, mess free and instant.  We will then hold your original map on our vehicle database, so should you wish to put your vehicle back to standard the file will be available to re-install.

TRI-CORE  Remapping

Certain vehicle manufacturers from 2008 began to install Bosch Tricore Processors. A particular feature of this type of processor is its ANTI-Tune software that disables the ability to remap through the OBD port.  We have the ability to conduct remapping of this type of ECU using our Kess Boot-Loader hardware. We remove the vehicle Ecu and also remove the cover to gain access to the ECU circuitry. Our technicians then locate the specific point on the ECU that allows us to download and add

information. We then conduct the remap in the same way as a standard OBD remap, by reading the data we require and having the original vehicle map customised by ELITE REMAPS. Once the customised map has been re-installed onto the ECU we reassemble and seal the ECU and replace onto the vehicle. Due to the extremely technical nature of performing Tricore remapping we are one of the only re- mapping dealers in the whole of Yorkshire that offer this service.

PDACAR NEVER use “stock” maps, not only is this not in the customers best interest, but can also be potentially dangerous to the vehicle electronics.  All of our maps are modified to our customer’s exact requirements and re-installed onto the vehicle in a discreet manner. Our remaps our installed in such a manner as to be generally undetectable by dealership technicians.
