All our vehicles come with preinstalled factory settings on the ECU (Engine Control Unit) that dictate their performance abilities. These settings tend to be conservative in nature and don’t allow the vehicle to perform to its fullest abilities. But most drivers won’t give these settings a second thought as they are quite content driving along as prescribed by the manufacturers.
Those who aren’t interested in enhancing their vehicle’s performance are content with watching the speedometer and gas gauge for their need-to-know information but there is so much more data that can be read and used to enhance a vehicle’s performance. Gas and speed are only the tip of the iceberg. There are no hidden secrets in vehicles. You may have questions because you lack the data you need but if you can get answers, you can unlock the potential of your engine.
