Celtic Tuning Performance Vehicle ECU & DSG Remaps at Cheshire Care Care Knutsford
What makes our software maps different?
Modern management systems provide a finite level of control; this is a great advantage for tuning but can also be detrimental if not fully understood. At Celtic Tuning we develop all of our software in house with mechanical empathy and drivability as our major focus. Any ‘tuner’ can add fuel/boost to provide a power gain, but modern management systems have a myriad of limiters and control measures which have to be fully understood to ensure there is no detrimental impact on engine components.

Our Celtic Tuning Warranty
At the software installation date, a current original Warranty provided by the manufacturer of the motor vehicle is required for this guarantee to be operative, and it is a Condition that such Warranty remains in force until its normal expiry date. This Warranty applies only in the event and to the extent that the Manufacturer’s Warranty does not respond.
The Celtic Tuning Warranty applies (subject to the Terms & Conditions, available on request) to damage directly caused to the relevant Motor Vehicle arising directly from Mechanical Breakdown by reason of failure of the Celtic Tuning product installed during the period of this Warranty.
Being the sudden and unforeseen failure of a component of the Motor Vehicle directly attributable to the operating of the Celtic Tuning product, the subject of this Warranty, which has caused the Motor Vehicle to stop working and therefore requiring repair or replacement before normal operation can be resumed.
Period: The Lesser of:
- 12 months from the date of installation of the Celtic Tuning product to the Motor Vehicle by a Celtic Tuning Approved Installer; or
- 30,000 miles as measured on the Motor Vehicle odometer from the date of installation of the Celtic Tuning product; or
- the time period remaining on the original warranty provided by the Manufacturer of the Motor Vehicle at the time of purchase from new; whichever is the shortest, but subject to a maximum of 60,000 miles or 36 months.
Conditions and Limits:
You should be aware that failure by you, the Customer, to observe the Manufacturer’s recommended maintenance procedures/service intervals – stamped by a manufacturer authorised/approved dealership will invalidate any claim made. The vehicle should be serviced within the mileage or time frame stated in the vehicle service book. No sum in respect of economic or consequential loss is payable. Use excludes competitions, track days, pacemaking or rallying, and claims are subject to a limit of £10,000.00 in the aggregate in respect of any one vehicle. Normal deterioration or claims as a result of wear and tear are not covered. Celtic Tuning cannot be held responsible for modifications to the vehicle which lead to defects.
More power is not more strain on components
An engine producing 20bhp less at peak may have no control over the ramp rate of the torque curve at low RPMs, which can shorten the life-span of the clutch/flywheel and can also cause spikes in boost, leading to premature wear/failure.
Stage 2 Tuning
Stage 2 tuning often (but not always) combines either a stage 1 or 2 ECU remap with either or both physical removal of the EGR and DPF and electronically through modification of the ECU Software parameters. It can also require in some instances (including over-run burble/pop-bang remaps) a decat pipe to replace the standard catalytic converter(s) or 200 cell sports cats. We will provide recommendations on enquiry based upon your specific requirements. Stage 2 performance enhancements are most usually only applicable to Turbo-charged or Super-Charged engines.
Induction and Exhaust Modifications for even more power!
If you wish to modify your standard air filter or opt for a performance induction kit then we can supply and fit these before we remap your vehicle. Branded Suppliers of intake filters and systems include Eventuri, ECS , K&N, Piper Cross and ITG. The current leading exhaust brand suppliers include Akroprovic, Milltek, Scorpion, Remus and Armytrix.
If you are looking at a new exhaust system we can work with our exhaust suppliers and design and supply a custom one-off cat-back, turbo-back or full exhaust system including headers in either 304L Stainless steel, 321 Stainless steel, Inconel 625 Alloy, or for 50% ++ weight saving gains opt for titanium or Asnex titanium. Applications include fast road, or race systems. A custom system can be more cost effective than a recognised ‘branded’ system however the craftsmanship and materials used can be superior also.
Just tell us which exhaust system or custom system and or air filter you wish to purchase and we will order it for you. Please note a custom exhaust can take upto a week or more if custom headers fabrication is required to manufacture and fit depending upon design.
Due to the cost of exhaust systems and certain induction systems a 50% deposit will be required upon ordering.
Pop-Bang (Over-run Burble) Remaps
Celtic Tuning supply Over-run remaps covering most vehicles with a BOSCH ECU. Over-run maps for vehicles with other makes of ECU ie Delphi, Continental are available. Please contact us or email us your registration number so we can confirm whether an over-run burble map is available for your car. Please note that in all instances the catalytic converter has to be removed as over-run maps work by fuel ignition within the de-cat downpipe (hot) forward sections of the exhaust system. A catalytic converters life-span would dramatically decrease and would most likely melt if left in place. We can supply and fit decat pipes before remapping the vehicle.
