    Default Byteshooter remap

    Have any of you guys heard of byteshooter? Longlife exhausts use it.

    Byteshooter is a tuning tool used by the remapping industy. It is a rather good, safe and stable method to reflash an ECU. i.e byteshooter is a brand of tool. I would be more concerned abou the quality of the remap file used rather than the tool used.

    They wont be creating their own files, they will be buying from a 3rd party. You can trust the tool, but without knowing where the file is from the quality of the remap is the real question. Chances are they are using a slave tool and dont know how to create a map file or how to look at a file to see if it is any good. Maybe find a tuning specialist with a dyno that create their own files and cut out the risk element.

    I write/look at map files all day every day, 90% of the cheap tuned files are nothing more than a standard map with the load map increased. Unfortunately that is the state of the remapping industry these days. No testing, no file development, no real tuning, just load a map to the ECU and away you go.


    The file you get might be very good, it may be rubbish, thats is the risk you take when having your extremely complex engine managment system fiddled with by an exhaust specialist, bit like having a heart transplant done by your plumber.

    i will keep that in mind. i might just stick with the exhaust with longlife, something they are good at and then go somewhere else who has a good reputation for remapping.

    Cheers fellas for all your comments!
