by KCPerformance Overview Projects
At KCPerformance we are able to carry out all sorts of work: from a small service or diagnose to a complete tuning project or full restoration. We are also specialized in optimizing the software of a car, also known as chiptuning or mapping. So for software tuning you're at the right place: KCPerformance. All our software is written custom, in house, by our technical director.
That is why the owner of this beautiful Opel Corsa D 1.2 ecoFLEX came to us: to improve the engine's performance. The car's computer was read so we could start our tuning with the original files as a base. After looking into the engine program we saw that there was a lot of room for improvement. We adjusted these points to raise the performance of the engine within the tolerances of the manufacturer.
Once the software was worthy of a KCPerformance emblem, we uploaded it back into the car's computer and made a test drive. The standard 83hp and 110Nm felt more like an ecoFAIL than a ecoFLEX. With these software modifications to the engine management we were able to raise the performance to 100hp and 133Nm but by adjusting certain ways the engine delivers it's power we were able to make the car feel allot more nimble and faster. In such a light car as this Corsa, it feels like driving a go-kart.
The customer and us at KCPerformance were very happy with the result. The car felt more comfortable to drive with the gain in torque and the pick up of the engine was much better. The car also feels much safer because he is able to follow the traffic flow easily and overtaking can be done at a safe pace. That's why this ecoFLEX is now known as the ecoFAST!
