What Is The Black Code Service?

The Black Code service unlocks the restrictions imposed by vehicle manufactures to release more power, greater response and lower fuel consumption, safely and reliably. Our simple connection to over 70k+ vehicles allows you to modify the ‘Brain’ of a vehicle without extra hardware or engine components being altered in anyway.

We can unleash the true potential of virtually any vehicle by:

"So far I am very happy with the remap on my VW Touareg, the car feels more responsive across the rev band & the economy has improved by about 10% too. The extra torque enables the auto box to stay in 6th gear much longer rather than changing up & down, this is especially useful when towing my caravan.

Matt Partridge | VW Touareg

"I’m very happy with the remap. It’s running a noticeably quicker 0-60 time, I’m getting 29 mpg if I’m careful (Parkers Car guide quotes 21 mpg) and the throttle response is absolutely awesome! I called Black code after a recommendation from a friend. I previously had tried 2 tuning boxes on my diesel BMW, one of which seemed to do nothing and the other made the engine sound rough. So I called Bill and arranged to do things properly with a custom remap."

Chris Wells | Audi RS6 Avant

"I’m really pleased with the work that you’ve done to my car. There is a definite improvement in performance and economy. Feels like I’ve got a new car. All the staff were very courteous and really helpful and polite. A first class, efficient service. Thank you! PS – I was so impressed – I tell anyone who’ll listen about your services – I’m becoming a Black Code bore!!"

Louise Baker | BMW X6 40d

"We are really pleased with both theTransit Van and the car, the van goes up hill with ease now and the Saab seems more fun to drive, and more economical too! Our Son is also pleased with his car too. The service was excellent and would highly recommend your company to others."

Sean Jackson | Mercedes S320

"I would just like to thank you for re-mapping my Golf GTI yesterday, my car is running great, so smooth & the power feeds in great ! Thanks also for your help and advise. Hope you enjoyed your night out and if your ever out and about in Manchester I’ll shout you a beer! Thanks again."

Hannah Barns | VW GOLF TFSI

"I would positively encourage anyone looking to start a new business full time, part-time or as a bolt on to what they already do to Partner with Black Code. My only regret for me personally is I didn't do it earlier."

David Collier | Porsche 997 4s

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Is It Done?

The re-mapping is completely mobile enabling us to carry out the process at a time and location convenient to you. Alternatively, if it is more suitable, you would be more than welcome to drop your vehicle to one of our professional Black Code Workshops.

How Long Will It Take?

Re-Maps usually take about two hours from start to finish, however, we endeavour to be as flexible as possible to fit in with your availability and can often find alternative options that can reduce this time further where necessary.

How Effective Is Your Re-Mapping Service?

If you don’t immediately see the savings, if you can’t instantly feel the extra power or aren’t completely satisfied in any way, we will refund your investment in full! Black Code is the industry leader and our bullet-proof vehicle re-mapping is recognised throughout Europe for it’s reliability and safety.

Do Black Code Use Generic Files?

Unlike many competitors Black Code Maps are custom written in-house in the UK, with information taken from your individual vehicle and can be designed at your request to provide more power, better economy or a perfect blend of both. We NEVER use generic, third party or off the shelf maps.

Will A Black Code Re-Map Shorten An Engines Life Expectancy?

The simple answer is no; Black Code optimise the parameters within the ECU without exceeding the limits of the vehicles engine.

Can The Original Settings Be Re-Installed?

Black Code always backs up the original file on to our off site secure server so that the original file can be loaded back onto the vehicle at any time.

What Risks Are Involved With Re-Mapping A Vehicle?

We are, modesty aside, nationally recognised as the UK’s leading authority on vehicle tuning and ECU Re-mapping. All upgrades are undertaken by fully trained Black Code factory technicians ensuring the safest, most reliable and efficient upgrades.

ECU Re-Mapping Or A Tuning-Box?

Engine tuning boxes generally only increase the fuel pressure and injection periods. This leads to an uneven spread of power and spikes, due to poor quality signal processing. These problems do not exist with ECU re-mapping, because all the parameters of the engine management are adjusted in unison, including torque and turbo limiters which can not be accessed by a tuning box.

Can A Re-Map Be Detected By A Dealer Servicing The Vehicle?

The dealer may determine that the ECU has been modified however this is not straight forward with their equipment as our software is designed to be non-detectable. Should the dealer accidentally overwrite our upgrade we will happily provide another software upgrade completely FREE of charge. In some circumstances a car dealership may re-flash the ECU on a vehicle to upload the latest software. If this happens our modified file is overwritten. So all you do is call our local technician and they will re-install your optimized map completely FREE of charge.
