Car engines database for tuning companies

Excel database made for tuning companies and webdesigners working for these companies. I do NOT provide ECU files. Individuals who want to tune their own car should contact a tuning company (dyno-chiptuningfiles.com or others).

FREE sample: Dyno Chiptuning SAMPLE.xlsx, alternate formats: CSV and SQL.

I advise everyone to purchase Dyno Chiptuning database (above) so I can reduce number of databases that I need to update regularly. I keep CelticTuning below in case someone wants to purchase specifically this database (or both).

Description & updates

For many years, tuning companies were buying my original Car Models & Engines Database that I compiled manually from books, and write themselves remapped power and torque.

In February 2018 someone asked me to extract data from celtictuning.co.uk showing engine power and torque before and after ECU remapping. In April 2018 a second person was interested in similar database, by this way I made database public on website so everyone needing it can purchase. About 10 people purchased by end of 2018. By this way I realized that there are many tuning companies among my customers.

2 customers said that CelticTuning is not accurate and suggested to scrap instead from br-performance.be and dyno-chiptuningfiles.com, which I have done in December 2018. New visitors asked me to scrap avontuning.co.ukecu-soft.be, olsx.lu and others too, tomorrow someone else will say that all above are not accurate and suggest another one.

If I scrap data from additional websites, I will end spending too much effort updating too many databases that will cannibalize sales each other. We need to decide at ONE website. What makes one better than others?

Coverage: both CelticTuning and Dyno Chiptuning include all cars and light commercial vehicles, plus some heavy trucks sold in Europe, earliest car included is BMW 3-Series from 1991, but completion is significant after 1995. Dyno Chiptuning include also few cars that are not sold officially in Europe (GMC, Holden, Pontiac, etc).

Since 18 February 2019 when I updated both, as October 2019 Dyno got 7 sales and Celtic only 2 sales, giving me impression that does not worth to update Celtic anymore. Few people asked me to email them SQL version too, so since March 2020 I am providing CSV and SQL files by default for everyone. At April 2020 update I found that Dyno Chiptuning’s number of brands and models increased significantly, they added many trucks, tractors and other agricultural machinery. Since March 2022 I am providing also a WordPress plugin made by a customer with permission to resell via my website. List of updates.

ECU files

At the moment I created these databases I was not aware how tuning works. Several people asked me how to download the “tuning files”, I was confused what they meant since all what I am selling are Excel files with public data extracted from tuning company website (and similar Excel scraping from other websites).

This until someone informed me that anyone can tune his own car by downloading remapped files from internet and importing in their ECU. if you need this, you need to approach a tuning company, NOT me (database provider).

Later, someone else told me that can provide me few thousands ECU files in exchange of my Excel database. Can I trust this? If I get these ECU files, how do I should provide them to you and all people who want to tune themselves their own car? Been informed by other customers that thousands ECU files are available on eBay for $5. Most likely above person was trying to save $115 by buying ECU files from eBay for $5 and exchange with my $120 database. Files sold on eBay are shit, they can damage your car or are not working at all. I do not have ability to read ECU files to see if they are real / usable.
