Top Gear Tuning Ltd was initially formed in 2015 by Top Gear Director Stephen Kilcoyne and the ex racing driver Perry McCarthy who portrayed The Stig in the first two series of BBC motoring show Top Gear.

It should be noted Perry is no longer with the company and there is no association between Top Gear Tuning and the BBC. 

Tried and Tested

Tony Drake, our mobile Sales & Support Technician was entrusted with remapping two AA vans in 2016. The work was carried out at the shared AA and BT workshop in West Drayton, London.

Why don’t carmakers fine-tune their own ECU’s?

Large manufacturers sell vehicles across various markets that have extreme climates, different tax/emission regulations and diverse fuel quality. They have to take all these factors in to consideration and therefore need to make substantial compromises in their tuning set-up. However, without facing such restrictions, Topgear Tuning is more precise; we can safely optimise outputs thus unlocking engine potential.

Remapping is a growth market driven by increasing consumer demand and recognition of published gains for both engine performance and fuel economy. Principally, we are a business to business to business operation offering independent, through to large chain service centres, the opportunity to easily take commercial advantage of this drive. With our experience, expertise and unique brand marketing, we can deliver, manage and support existing tuners or new entrants in to the remapping trade.
