The diesel performance industry including tuners, modules, and programmers can significantly unleash the optimum performance and fuel efficiency of modern diesel-powered vehicles. Performance tuning involves usage of devices which are mingled into the term “chip”, involving modification of various operating parameters such as timing and fuel characteristics, in favor of maximum output, with little or no regard to vehicle emissions, with the aim of increasing performance, fuel economy, and modification or reprogramming of the factory calibration of an engine. When it comes to Em programming, it involves using a computer with microprocessor, with similar features and capabilities of your computer at home or office. There is a microprocessor involved in ECM programming that is used for receiving, interpreting, and acting to sensor input, and it consists of hardware (standard circuit board) that is encoded with a software program (tells the vehicle how to run).
Every car has an ECM system, but it is not really an important factor when making a decision between different models. Programmable ECM systems are required for modified cars which make them exempted from the rule. Remember that ECM is tasked to provide fuel and regulating emissions, and regardless of the make and model of your car, and the ECM, the inputs are pretty much the same in each system. The ECM system is used in monitoring and regulating the throttle position sensor, telling the engine how much air and fuel to mix to make power; the coolant temperature sensor, letting the engine know if it is running too hot (alerts the driver, with the use of the instrument panel light); the voltage regulator, for tracking and adjusting how much power is being sent throughout the car; the fuel injectors, providing fuel at precisely the right moment for optimum power delivery; the position sensors for the camshaft and crankshaft, identifying the engine’s cycles; the mass airflow sensor and MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor, for monitoring the different ways air affects the engine; the oxygen sensor, measuring exhaust quality; idle control; the EGR valve sensor, helping with emissions and the ignition control, regulating the spark plugs.
The ECM systems are not designed by auto manufacturers but are rather one of the components that is sourced and customized. Only a few of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) make ECM systems for cars. Each brand and type must be customized according to the specifications of the automotive manufacturer. There should be proper configuration of the ECM system so that the car can perform well, and the engine specs and other factors must be considered. The same system is used to tune to different cars even if OEM suppliers are offering different engine computer products, and a good starting point is that ECM systems are broken down into categories such as fuel type (diesel or gasoline), engine size, and so on.
