The simple answer is YES! It will affect all components from the engine, through the transmission, down the drivetrain, to your axles. All of these items would be subject to greater forces than standard, and so they are effectively at a greater risk of failure than on a standard car. However, we understand the components on each vehicle are made to withstand certain loads, and we take care to ensure our work will not overstep the mark. We have our own 4×4 rolling road, and have performed hundreds of hours of testing, over many vehicles, even in different countries, and we know that our work will not cause any problems, ever!
Absolutely not! These devices offer an extremely crude way of producing more performance, and can only give very limited gains at best. We always reprogram the internals of the vehicles engine management system, where we have access to every parameter, allowing us to make perfectly balanced tuning that will always deliver.
Alive’s “Master Tuner” status means we are capable of performing our engine tuning on vehicles that are situated far away from us, using the internet to bridge the gap. We have been remap tuning for over a decade, using the finest tools, equipment, and software available in the world, which with our experience, ensures you’ll get that ‘Alive feeling’ every time you drive!
We have a carefully selected number of tuning centres around the world, from UK and Northern Ireland, and as far away as Australia and New Zealand. Most of these are equipped to deal with most models of Land Rover, as well as many other vehicles too.

We understand the lengths the manufacturers have gone to, to ensure every vehicle runs with minimal emissions, being sympathetic to our environment. This is something we take very seriously, and see this as a factor that sets up apart from the rest. Our tuning is designed to keep emissions as low as possible, while releasing the maximum safe potential from your engine. By doing this, we can be sure you will get the best possible performance, with our 'Socially acceptable Tuning!'.
Of course, a main dealer software update will delete our work, and although this does not happen very often, we would be only too happy to re-instate the tuning, onto your new software revision. There is normally a small charge for this service, simply to cover our time, and return postage if required.
You absolutely must declare all non standard modifications to your insurance company. Failure to do this does not bear thinking about, should the worst happen, so it simply isn’t worth the risk. Often the difference in premiums is negligible and so there really isn’t an excuse not to disclose modifications.
