What is diesel tuning?

Diesel tuning, also known as diesel engine remapping or chip tuning, is the process of modifying the engine control unit (ECU) of a diesel vehicle to improve its performance and fuel efficiency. By adjusting various parameters such as fuel injection timing, turbo boost pressure, and throttle response, diesel tuning can unleash the full potential of your vehicle’s engine.

The Benefits of Diesel Tuning Services

Increased Power:

Diesel tuning unlocks the hidden potential of your engine, resulting in a significant boost in power and torque. This extra power can enhance your vehicle, acceleration and towing capabilities, making it ideal for anyone that wants better performance and enthusiasts seeking more thrill from their diesel cars.

Improved Fuel Efficiency:

Contrary to the belief that tuning turbo diesel decreases fuel efficiency, a well calibrated turbo diesel tune can often lead to improved fuel economy by optimizing combustion and reducing fuel burned. This also results in a more responsive vehicle.

Enhanced Drivability:

Diesel tuning does not exclusively modify the engine computer. Willys can also modify transmission computers and the characteristics of how the transmission behaves. This can lead to smoother and more responsive vehicle, reducing turbo lag and providing a more enjoyable driving experience by allowing the torque gains and power increase to get to the wheels. If the engine makes power but cannot get to the wheels, the end result will be poor.

Long-Term Engine Health & Reliability:

A proper tune can promote better engine longevity more efficiency as it optimizes performance without pushing the engine beyond its limits, thus reducing wear and tear. if you want a tune on your daily driver, reliability should not be compromised under any circumstance! With a poor tune, major engine failure is possible, that is why it is important to get your car remapped by the extremely knowledgeable team at Willys Workshop!

Model Upgrades

Many manufactures use diesel engines in their vehicles. When choosing a new vehicle, it’s important to look at the fuel efficiency and power of the engine. Many manufactures use the same engine across a range, with the only difference being factory settings inside the ecu remap. In some cases, even though the engine is running very well, it may not have as much power as it could have due to this. That’s where Diesel Performance Tuning comes into play. Willys can perform a model upgrade via ecu remapping. This allows extra performance of the higher model without the extra price tag.

What actually is diesel performance?

It’s a term that refers to the overall performance of a diesel vehicle. The term can refer to its power figure how well it accelerates, how well it stops, and what kind of fuel economy you get. If your diesel vehicle has been around for a while, it might not have the same high tech performance as modern vehicle. Not to worry, the performance can still be increased and optimised to get better fuel economy and a better power figure!  Diesel performance has evolved to encompass much more than power these days and the definitions of these different types of performance now differ from one manufacturer to another. Often a manufacture can consider better performance to be lower fuel consumption disregarding power figures even with a fully open throttle.

As diesel vehicles become increasingly popular, more people buy used cars with low mileage. However, the repair cost can be high due to poor or lack of maintenance history. This is where the right diesel tuner & suitably qualified workshop can help. We can not only perform performance tunes, extensive servicing & pre purchase inspections, but upgrades to suit your needs.

How Does Diesel Performance Tuning Work?

Diesel cars typically have more torque than horsepower, so they can pull heavy loads without using a lot of fuel compared to a petrol car. That torque, is also why diesel engines are usually heavier and have a shorter stroke than petrol engines, and are the preferred choice in big equipment.

The tuning process for diesel engines works by adjusting the air/fuel ratios, fuel injectors, and ignition timing. By doing this, the engine can produce more torque and power, which can help the car to pull more weight and go faster.

The best vehicles are Diesel, as they are more efficient than their petrol counterparts.

Maximum power increase :

You may be hungry for more power. In this case, a diesel performance tune is the perfect solution for enthusiasts who want to get more power and more torque out of their car. By doing this, you will get more power, better torque, even better fuel economy, reduced turbo lag and smoother power delivery than ever before, all from a car that’s already legal and easy to drive.

Increase fuel efficiency :

We also offer eco tunes remapping your factory ecu to run better, with a smoother power curve to get the power to the wheels while using less fuel. If you want to save money on diesel, try an Diesel Eco Tune.

Model upgrade remap :

While Diesel performance tuning is about improving the drivability of your diesel vehicle, we can also model upgrade your car, truck or machinery. Meaning, you can purchase the lower specification equipment, then contact us to upgrade it, for a fraction of the cost compared to what the factory would have charged you new. If you are not sure, feel free to Contact us to discuss this option.

How to Improve Diesel Truck Performance?

Diesel trucks are used for a variety of jobs. Whether it’s construction, garbage collection, or delivery, these vehicles require a lot of maintenance. If you own a diesel truck, you must take care of it and make sure it performs as well as possible. If the vehicle is in a well kept functional condition, we can perform a tune to the truck, just the same as a car! This is achieved by enhancing the drivability of the vehicle’s engine similar to a car, although with some very careful considerations as larger diesel engines are more difficult to tune well.

It is very important to ensure that your truck is functional as per the factory condition. Willys is highly recommended to bringing the truck back up to the same condition as factory. For instance, if you have a diesel truck with a faulty turbo, you would probably want to have the turbocharger replaced prior to tuning with only the best parts. Fixing this issue then ensures your vehicle is in tip top shape, As a result, your diesel truck will be easier to drive.

Using Diesel Fuel Additives

Diesel fuel additives are meant to clean your injectors & fuel lines. They can also help keep your engine running at its best. The most common issue with diesel vehicles is that they don’t get enough lubrication. The additive you add to the fuel will help prevent fuel system issues – especially if you think you may have gotten a bad batch of fuel!  If your engine is having problems, there are other diesel additives to try, such as

  • Anti Friction Additives
  • Complete fuel system cleaners
  • Water dissolvers
  • Fuel Stabilizers
  • Corrosion inhibitors

As part of all logbook service Willys uses specialised injector cleaners to ensure you get the best life and diesel performance possible.

Plug and play Diesel Tuners

Engine tuners are small electronic devices that help improve the performance of your diesel engine. They attempt to ‘tune’ your engine to your specific needs as a driver. This is not the case at all and for the reasons below do not recommend them, We only recommend a full ecu remapping service.

Tuners are the easiest way to both increase power, fuel efficiency and improve engine performance, Although we do not recommend them at all, as they are not a custom remap to suit your car. We only flash the factory ecu, so we can fully control all of the factory parameters for any particular engine, while still maintaining any safety guards and warning systems. Many of these plug and play tuners trick your car into seeing factory values, while actually pouring fuel into the engine. This will give you a power increase to the vehicle and a perceived increase in torque at the expense of possibly blowing up your engine. We have removed countless piggyback systems after engine failures, and then performed the ecu remapping service at our workshop.

The end result every time is an increase in power, more torque, less fuel and a better turbo diesel vehicle all around. At the same time as the rebuild we can also offer upgrades to improve reliability.

Installing Performance Air Filters & Cold Air Intakes

If you want a bit more out of your diesel engine, you might consider aftermarket air filters and cold air intake kits. These improvements will make your engine perform better. This will not only help to improve the airflow but also helps to improve engine reliability by removing the dirt and debris that can build up over time. A cold air intake will also help to increase the airflow. Installing a cold air intake is not just for the car enthusiast, but it can actually improve your vehicle fuel efficiency.

Exhaust System Upgrades

Your vehicle exhaust system is designed to reduce the amount of noise and improve the power potential. However, if you want to make a dramatic difference, you might want to consider upgrading your exhaust system. This will significantly boost power and possibly provide better fuel efficiency. Pairing a exhaust upgrade with a tune is the ultimate upgrade! This upgrade will make your turbo diesel vehicles increase in power and torque even more significant, so it’s worth considering paying extra for it as an upgrade.

Common Rail Diesel Fuel Injector faults & repairs

Updating your fuel injectors will help you get more power from your diesel engine. This is a great upgrade if you are looking for that extra bit of performance and improved fuel economy and efficiency. It will also improve your fuel efficiency by allowing finer control over the injectors. Often injectors degrade significantly over the lifetime of the diesel vehicle, with customers not even noticing. We have the ability to remove the injectors and test them on a bench machine to finely calibrated specifications. We have the ability to fault find and solve issues across the whole common rail system including on the high pressure pump, Suction control valve, rail pressure sensors, rail relief and other associated parts.

From the results of this injector test, we can determine if the injectors are the issue in your underperforming engine. Depending on the condition of the injectors will the result can either be repair, or replacement. With a set of replacement injectors in a diesel vehicle without a tune that had injector faults will be a instant improvement, both more power and more torque. Add Willys Diesel tuning service on top of this and it will feel like a new car!

If you have any of these issues you should book an appointment or click here to learn more about our diesel injector service every 100,000 KM for your car.

Emissions Systems

Emissions systems are on cars to meet legalities of exhaust emissions. Commonly a DPF Delete, EGR Delete or AdBlue Delete is not legal for on road use and should remain functional for ensuring compliance with road legalities. Unregistered cars such as for the track do not require these systems. Contact us for clarification or to discuss repairs to your faulty system.
