Tuning Emporium, based in Worcester, are specialists in the performance car tuning of engine management systems improving the efficiency of the engine and giving your vehicle increased power output, torque and fuel economy. From cars tuned for road or track applications to light commercials, trucks, agricultural & even marine engines we can provide a solution to meet your needs. By careful recalibration of the engine management system we can increase drivability with no detriment to reliability.
We are more than just your average tuning company as we develop our software in house whilst at the same time working with some of the best tuning houses from across Europe we have ultimate flexibility in both the range of vehicles that we tune and to be able to provide the customer with the very best solution for their needs
We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and it is the forefront of our operation. With reliability, drive-ability and satisfaction being our aim.
Tuning Emporium confidently guarantees the most precise configuration available. We offer stock-like drivability with extreme power gains by modifying your engine‘s timing, boost, and fuel mixture… and by applying our secret formula! Our custom tuning service reflects our goal of providing the most trustworthy, clean, and cost efficient method available for extracting the most out of your engine.
Air Fuel Ratios (AFR’s)
It is important to ensure optimum AFR is achieved in order to ensure that stoichiometric mixture. This in basic terms means that the engine isn’t running lean or rich fuel mixture. This is also important in ensuring that your engine is MOT compliant.
It is always important to monitor engine knock when developing a good and most importantly a safe tune. Knocking or detonation occurs when unburnt fuel in the combustion chamber explodes rather than a burning in a controlled manner. When engine knock is occuring the pressure within the combustion chamber rises dramatically to levels that can destroy your engines internal components within seconds.
It is important that correct boost pressure control is achieved to ensure that no spikes or dips occur to ensure maintained life of the turbo charger. A spike in the boost delivery can cause over-boosting which pressurises the compressor to a level beyond its tolerance.
Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGT)
When increasing the fuelling and boost pressures of an engine it naturally increases the EGT. It is important to log the EGT of an engine as there is a crucial limit which shouldn’t be surpassed to ensure maintained longevity. This is a good tool in monitoring the efficiency of uprated intercoolers etc.
Injector Duty Cycles (IDC)
This is crucial to know the fuelling limitation of the injector. On some modern cars we are seeing injectors with 100% IDC from standard meaning there is no room for further modification without upgrading the injectors (this is rare however). If it was a turbo application, and the boost pressure was raised, due to there being no additional fuel available, it would cause the engine to run lean and potentially melt your pistons.
You can rest assured that all our remaps are developed and tested to provide good, safe and reliable tuning. Never will we operate outside of the engines capabilities on standard components as your vehicles reliability is as important to us as it is to you.
DSG transmission tuning
Tuning Emporium have developed a host of DSG transmission tuning services. These DSG transmission upgrades can be applied to a completely stock vehicle improving its driving characteristics or added to tuned vehicle to make the very best from any tuning. Just like our range of ECU remaps, each DSG tuning file is custom written specifically for the vehicle and driver requirements. Every DSG tune can include launch control, shift and torque limiter functions and setting adjustments to give the driver the best possible driving experience.
Mild modifications to the DSG settings can be made to improve shift speed, responsiveness and smoothness, even if you are not a track day driver we believe all drivers will appreciate these changes.
For the more demanding drivers among you we have DSG fast road setup this is a custom tune with a slightly more aggressive feel, it is suitable for modified and tuned vehicles, with this setup your engines performance and vehicles modifications will be perfectly balanced to your DSG calibrations the modifications can include, performance exhausts, sport cats (or de-cat), DPF delete, supercharger or turbo charger upgrades.
Our final DSG tuning option if focused towards the occasional track day driver, we can include launch control, torque settings and optimised shift to suit your vehicle set up and driving style, this will be the most extreme DSG tune that can be applied to your vehicle and whilst maintaining a healthy transmission and is the best track setup and race feel available.
DSG Tuning Options & Benefits
Increased Shift Response
The shift response can be increased by up to 20% providing a smoother gear to gear transition, meaning a reduction of unnecessary clutch slip under full load acceleration protecting your clutch from premature failure.
With the reduced shift times you will also benefit from improved paddle-reaction-time by up to 40% in Sport mode.
Torque Limiter Modifications
The vehicle torque limiter/s are tuned as part of our ECU remap, however if your vehicle is equipped with DSG transmission then you could be missing out as the DSG control unit does have its own inbuilt torque limiters also. Through tuning the DSG control unit we are able to release the extra torque produced from your tuned engine whilst still ensuring the stability and capability of all mechanical moving hardware within the DSG transmission.
RPM Limiter Adjustments
Here just like the torque limiter tuning as above your DSG has control of RPM limiters for each gear there would be no point to make adjustments the engine ecu RPM limiter without the same changes applied to the DSG maps.
Increasing these shift points will give the driver full control and command of the engines power in the upper RPM ranges and we will set the DSG rev limit to work with your engines current setup.
Launch control can be activated in most cars but is particularly effective in DSG equipped vehicles.
A perfect launch can be achieved every time reducing 0-60 acceleration times by maintaining a perfect throttle balance to provide maximum traction off the line.
Making the right choice can be complex and sometimes it is best to have a chat with the experts.
Please call, we will give you an honest professional opinion on the best solution for your vehicle based on your budget and your needs.
