Learn how to Tune Automotive ECU’s and gain the knowledge of how engine calibration works.

  • ECU tuning and remap is the process of making changes to the data inside the ECU to bring about performance changes to the working / behavior of the engine.
  • ECU Calibration is the Technical word used for it.
  • Discover the concepts and terminologies of  ECU Tuning (Engine Calibration) used in the Automotive Industry and the tuning strategies taken to calibrate the engine.
  • Learn how to tune and remap the ECU based the requirements such as for Race Applications, Motorsports, Fuel Efficiency or for devloping Performace engines.
  • On completion of the ECU tuning course you will know how to Tune OEM and Standalone ECU’s with complete understanding of Engine Calibration and Control Parameters.
  • Develop your Skill Sets in terms of Engine and ECU Calibration to enhance your career as a Mechanical Engineer or Automobile Engineer.
