Car Performance Upgrades
The tuning market is currently flooded with companies offering vehicle tuning and engine remapping, and again we have watched in dismay as these so called “professionals” offer cheaper and cheaper performance upgrades.
At Burwains Service Centre we offer a Performance Upgrade Service that starts with the basic vehicle health checks required to assess whether it is even safe to improve your engine’s performance. Not only that, there is no point trying to extract more power from an engine that is not running correctly to start with, the full benefits of the remap or any other upgrade would not be felt.
We wouldn’t be offering a professional service if we didn’t carry out these checks and we have, in the past, refused to carry out upgrades to vehicles based on their condition.
Performance Upgrade Health Check
- Assess condition of engine oil
- Check for oil leaks
- Check all fluid levels
- Carry out full diagnostic scan for stored engine faults
- Carry out check for induction leaks using smoke machine
- Carry out road test
Once these checks have been carried out it’s time to discuss what improvement you are looking for. In most cases one of our engine remaps will deliver the improvements you’re looking for. We are agents for BHP UK – a local company, specialising in engine remapping, this allows us to carry out top quality engine remaps in house.
