Pros and cons of the Piggyback ECU

Pros and cons of the Piggyback ECU

Piggyback ECU is very popular to obtain in the world of computer Audi car tuning: the reasons for that are many and that’s exactly why we are here to enlist there.

How does the piggyback system ECU work? The piggyback works exactly what its name tells you: it will not neglect the company’s ECU but rather it will work it and work with it. How to realize you have a piggyback tuning? You just need to check whether the brand’s own ECU is still responsible for some of the functionalities. In case it’s so, that means that you’ve got a piggyback system.

What we need to consider when it comes to the Piggyback functionality?

This means that the signals other electronic divides are all about will be held up or intercepted before they would even reach the brand’s own ECU. This method works based on speed. It has to be faster than the default system which means a great challenge when it gets to this.

This means that the ECU modifies the signal after the signal is past the stock ECU. The advantage of this is, that it’s very flexible to adjust and what it does is, that it basically fools the standard factory ECU making it think it has processed a job successfully, while in the background it will carry on making its own adjustments too.



Many people would deliberately go for this change first to test the effects of tuning and would then decide if they go for the full-on tuning or rather stay with Piggybank instead.
