Customized Re-mapping & Re-Flashing

Customized Re-mapping & Re-Flashing

Our Level1Tec Seattle tuning shop is offering great deals on re-maps. Starting at 450.00 for most re-flash’s you will definitely get your money’s worth on re-flashing services. This will include a mobile re-flash service which will allow for installation and testing on the spot for those who want to get more horsepower and performance out of their vehicle. This service puts the customer in complete control and allows Level 1tec to focus on both quality and convenience.

The Power of Re-Flashing

Performing any re-flashing involves a focus on the engine control unit, or ECU for short. The ECU is a chip that normally has a read-only program containing information that manages important vehicle features such as the engine RPM, sensor outputs, and so on. Performing an ECU re-flash involves removing the read-only aspect of that chip and adapting it to new specifications. By doing this, a person can modify a car’s performance specs and improve horsepower and other features. However, ECU re-flashing can be very risky if not performed by an expert. That’s why it’s important that we offer ways to bring those experts into the field and ensure that they can meet customer needs anywhere.

Benefits of the Mobile Service

By providing re-flashing on the go, we offer several benefits to our customers. First and foremost, it increases safety among car owners and anybody who will be on the road by discouraging unskilled re-flashing which can damage vehicles and put others at risk. If an expert technician can come to the person seeking modification, the odds of a hasty and poor re-flash are dramatically decreased. Getting to people on the move is also a great way to make sure that each and every customer knows that their time is valued appropriately. Finally, mobile re-flashing provides a way for the shop to make sure that all updates are performed promptly, thus ensuring a better service overall.

What the Service Consists of

There are three main stages of the re-flashing service. First, our experts from Level 1Tec read and write the new ECU flash on all applications that are pertinent to the engine’s performance. This can include short-term power boosts and long-term efficiency modifications. After the initial installation, occasional updates need to be performed. Individuals from the shop will come to you to perform any updates rather than make you come in for them. Following the initial installation and installation of any updates, the modification is tested on the spot to ensure that it works properly. All of these services are offered on a 24/7 basis, allowing the shop to work around customer's schedules.

By providing re-flashing services on a mobile basis, our automotive shop is putting control of a vehicle firmly in the hands of the owner. No longer is a busy schedule a barrier to getting the exact type of performance a person wants out of their car. Now, such modifications can be performed by skilled individuals day or night, no matter what the situation.

How Does Custom Dyno Tuning Benefit You?

How Does Custom Dyno Tuning Benefit You?

When you purchase a vehicle, there is a limited mechanical power inside to keep drivers safe on the road when driving and keep cars manageable for their owners. You may wonder, however, about the power inside your vehicle and how to optimize it. Dynamometers are machines used to measure the power, force or torque output of a thing. In vehicle maintenance, they are used to assess the condition of an engine in order to properly assess power transfer at different rates of acceleration. The benefits to regular dyno testing are long term when regular testing is done on your car, motorcycle, or boat.

Improved Daily Performance

Tuning unlocks the full capabilities of your vehicle within legal restrictions. The vehicle can be adjusted to suit your driving style, speeds, and other particulars only you would care to notice. Your vehicle will be more personalized to your driving and transportation needs. Modifications can be anything from audio, transmission, engines, and steering. Internal parts of the vehicle can be modified, rearranged, or completely remade to suit your preferences. Tuning your vehicle makes it more versatile, powerful, and comfortable to drive.

Improved Mileage and Economy

Fuel efficiency is a high priority for car owners in urban areas who have a long weekly commute. These kinds of drivers also tend to be environmentally conscious as to the damage their car may be causing the environment. Old engines, damaged flywheels, and other machine parts of the vehicle can create less efficient operation when driving. Tuning your car at an engine tuning facility will help you identify the issues present within your vehicle, and guide you in taking necessary changes for increased fuel economy. Your car will drive better, besides having less environmental impacts when operating at a higher capacity for efficiency.

Improved Engine Operation

Standard manufacturer standards for your vehicle can be enhanced and upgraded by modifying the engine control unit. Custom tuning can establish what additions to your engine can be made. Larger cylinders, poppet valves, valve timing for burning, and other engine modifications can push your engine to maximum potential. Extensive engine modifications are used in cars built for racing and other high-speed competitions.

These enhancements and upgrades will increase the value of your car, and quite possibly the appearance, making your vehicle more fashionable and in style. Assessing engine power is one of the main benefits of tuning your vehicle.

In all aspects dyno testing is beneficial cosmetically, economically, and in performance. The car is able to access greater engine power, and with appropriate modifications, you can harness the power behind the wheel. Modifications also look good on your vehicle externally or internally, and increase the value. Fuel is used more efficiently as your vehicle is no longer strained or limited in its output or harnessing of power. With increased efficiency comes greater fuel economy and lessened harm to the environment.

Testing your vehicle and having modifications made based off the results found with dyno tuning can only open opportunities to improve-the benefits to you and your vehicle are almost unlimited.

Seattle Car Tuning Shop Gives Life To One Bad Corvette

View more photos of Seattle Car Tuning Shop Gives Life To One Bad Corvette

Level1tec, a leading Seattle tuning shop that also specializes in automotive customizing, recently had the opportunity to work on a classic Corvette that was in dire need of some help to get it in top condition again. The mechanics at our Corvette tuning shop put in long hours, but achieved results that have people all over the area talking. An overview of the work they performed is listed below.

The professionals at Level1tec were approached by a Corvette owner from the Spokane, Washington area in late October 2014 about the possibility of performing extensive work on the vehicle. Since Corvette performance tuning is something in which they specialize, the team eagerly agreed to take on the project. In less than two weeks, their work was finished, with the final results leaving car enthusiasts all over Northwest Washington amazed at what they had accomplished.

Custom Tuning

Mechanics at Level1tec went to work immediately to perform a full custom Corvette tuning, which is something they are very well known for doing. One of the problems with this particular Corvette was the fact that the O2 (oxygen) sensors were hitting the headers. This in turn can affect fuel injection performance and emissions. The vehicle also had bag plugs, which was caused by too much fuel. These were also replaced to increase engine efficiency and enhance performance.

Other Adjustments

Aside from a customized Corvette performance tuning, there were a number of other adjustments made to this vehicle as well. A major adjustment involved replacing the clutch reservoir and its hose in order to improve the car’s braking ability. Mechanics discovered that a crimped line had caused the clutch not to disengage, but that replacing these parts resolved the problem. A heat barrier was also added to the underside of the Corvette. This was done in an effort to protect the car’s brake lines as well as the valuable electronic components that were located there. The end result was a vehicle that not only looked incredible, but performed better than it had for years.

Owner Response

The owner of this Corvette was overwhelmed by the transformation of his automobile, and bragged about the quality of work performed by Level1tec mechanics on social media sites. Owner Travis Johnson remarked that he was very pleased because his vehicle “finally runs like it should.” He praised the team at Level1tec for their quality of workmanship, and proudly proclaimed that the drive from Spokane was well worth it. Johnson was apparently so impressed with the quality of work he received that he promised his Corvette would never be taken to another shop from that point forward.

The transformation of this classic Corvette helped to reinforce the reputation of Level1tec as a leading Corvette tuning shop in the Seattle, Washington area. While the owner was exceptionally pleased with the way his automobile was cared for, the mechanics at this shop feel the level of service they provided was something they strive to achieve with each and every customer.

Just like everything else one should expect from a high level performance shop, this blog is right on the money!!! As the owner of this car, I can’t speak highly enough about the service and upfront communication provided to me as they discovered problems that were inhibiting the car ability to perform like it should. As this post does not include specifics about what’s under the hood, I can say that it took level1tec to bring it all together. Even after I got it home to Spokane they continued to demonstrate there support as they were asking for updates on the cars performance. With future upgrades in the plans when spring rolls around, I cannot wait to get the car back to them.

Anyone who has dealt with performance shops knows that it hard to find someone that will not only care for the performance but also understand that most of us put our heart and sole into our cars. When I went in to pick up my car, it was fully detailed inside and out. I knew when I seen it, before I even drove it, that this was the only place my Vette will ever be trusted to as they care for it as much, if not more, than I do!

What is ECU Performance Tuning Software?

What is ECU Performance Tuning Software?

Modern vehicles of all kinds are equipped with miniature computers in some capacity or form. The memory chips of these computers can be accessed and rewritten in order to increase the hidden capabilities of a vehicle to increase performance and better its fuel economy. Access of these electronic control units is done by ECU software. It has the capability of reading the control chip and overwriting the overall response of the car mechanics in various conditions and situations. A chip can be re-written or completely removed and replaced with a new chip with writing made to fit your standards for improvement. Doing this increases the value, reliability, and power of a vehicle.

Modifications with ECU

Almost all aspects of the car can be enhanced by ECU performance software, because almost all of the vehicle parts are controlled by the written computer chip. Proper tuning can result in a faster, stronger engine, smooth controls, and increased fuel economy. Ignition timing controls when and how the internal workings of the engine react from the time you turn the key in the ignition. Fuel maps within the chip can be rewritten to allow more fuel to be accessed by the vehicle. Poorly tuned cars will actually decrease in their performance and return from tuning with increased problems that with which they began.

Benefits of ECU Software

All aspects of the computer chip have to be read and rewritten in order for there to be benefit to your vehicle tuning. One modification cannot be made without affecting the entire vehicle. All the rewritten parts must coincide with the capabilities and limitations of the vehicle for a truly successful assessment and modification process. When done properly, your engine will be stronger and much faster, because it has access to more fuel at a given time, and the flywheel, pistons, and other engine components have been adjusted to work toward this result. Transitions between gears will be more smooth and without catches. Finally, gas economy will be more efficient than before, because of the modifications made to your engine and use of fuel.

Modifications to your boat, motorcycle, or car are made after their internal computer chip is read by ECU performance software. All the manufacturer writings can be accessed, and overwritten according to the capabilities of your car and what you want the upgrades and improvements to be. Improper readings and unskilled modifications, which ignore your car and all aspects of the internal workings, will cause damage and create more need for repair and rewriting. When done well, performance software and the modifications made based upon its readings will increase the overall efficiency of your vehicle. Engines will be capable of more power and your car will have more speed output. Fuel economy will be increased, and driving your vehicle will be a pleasure from increased control. Consider having individual modifications made to your engine, ignition, and the other mechanical and electronic components with readings made from ECU software.
