BEST ecus and computers PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!

ecus and computers


Not only do ECUs and computers help your car or van function effectively, they can also be programmed to boost performance levels, which is a useful function for those who are looking to modify their car. However, not all ECUs can be reprogrammed and here we will explain more about your car's ECUs and computers.

ECUs and computers

Nearly every modern car will have ECUs and computers fitted - ECU stands for engine control unit which is essentially a computer that will help control various functions so your car performs at the optimum level decided by the manufacturer. The computers are hardwired into parts of the car and they then manage and monitor aspects such as exhaust emissions and fuel economy. The ECU will use various senses dotted around the car for gathering data and then analysing it before taking suitable action that it has been programmed to take.

Replace the ECUs and computers in your car

It's possible to replace the ECUs and computers in your car with new OEM parts, or you could use an aftermarket universal fitting or use an ECU from a scrapped vehicle. Before anyone invests in a new ECU, you should appreciate whether you actually need a new one, or whether you should consider ECU remapping instead. Put simply, ECUs and computers in modern cars work in real time to process data from sensors and use microprocessors for doing so. This means they consist of hardware and software and will, for example, manage the amount of fuel flow into the engine to deliver the performance. However, some ECUs can be reprogrammed to alter how they behave. This means someone modifying their car can then change the tuning and calibration parameters but they may need a programmable ECU to do this since the one that's factory fitted may prevent remapping or adjustments from being made.

Install a programmable ECU

If you do install a programmable ECU, then changing the set-up is relatively straightforward and you will need to connect the ECU to a computer and using relevant software make the required changes. Otherwise, there are some excellent aftermarket ECUs that allow more control over fuel injection and ignition timing as well as offering more control over traction control and the intercooler as well as servo motors, pumps and fans.

If you are not modifying your car or looking to boost performance levels and your ECUs and computers have become faulty, for example, there may be issues with the starter motor, fuses or battery, which could highlight an issue with the ECU then it's a good idea to have a professional check the car to see whether a new ECU is required because they will have diagnostic equipment to make this assessment quickly.

Searching for ECUs and computers for cars
