On-board diagnostics, or OBD, is an automotive term referring to a vehicle's self-diagnostic and reporting capability. OBD systems give the vehicle owner or a repair technician access to state of health information for various vehicle sub-systems. The amount of diagnostic information available via OBD has varied widely since the introduction in the early 1980s of on-board vehicle computers, which made OBD possible. Early instances of OBD would simply illuminate a malfunction indicator light, or MIL, if a problem was detected—but would not provide any information as to the nature of the problem. Modern OBD implementations use a standardized digital communications port to provide real-time data in addition to a standardized series of diagnostic trouble codes, or DTCs, which allow one to rapidly identify and remedy malfunctions within the vehicle.

The OBD system provides owners with an early warning of malfunctions by way of a dashboard "Check Engine" light (also known as a Malfunction Indicator Light or MIL, for short). By giving vehicle owners this early warning, OBD protects not only the environment but also consumers, identifying minor problems before they become major repair bills.

In the engine tuning industry, three phrases are often used interchangeably. These are: 'OBD Tuning', 'Chip Tuning' and 'ECU Remapping'. OBD stands for On Board Diagnostic. To make sense of this the word port is important because without the port, on board diagnostics would not actually exist; just as it didn't exist in the 1980's. So any 'OBD port tuning' or 'obd port remap' is just engine tuning or engine remapping completed via the use of the car's obd port.

TDCI Remap

TDCI means Turbo Diesel Common rail Injection. Instead of having a distributor pump with a separate pipe to each injector, the common rail is just that. A single pipe (or rail) connected to all four injectors. The fuel is allowed through only when the ECU triggers the injector. These common rail systems run at extremely high pressures (in excess of 25,000psi) so please do not attempt to dismantle one unless you have the relevant experience. You might very well seriously injure or kill yourself!

Bosch Remap

Electronic Diesel Control (EDC) is an electronic engine-management system for diesel engines. Bosch presented the first system of this kind for passenger cars in 1986. Since 1989 it has also been used in commercial vehicles, where it has now become part of today’s standard equipment. EDC combines all control and regulation functions in one electronic engine control unit to which the injection system and a large number of sensors and actuators are connected.

EGR Delete

Modern engines recirculate some of their exhaust gases back into the engine with the aim of reducing emissions. This is the is the main benefit of the EGR system. The downside is that exhaust fumes containing carbon deposits are constantly being recirculated through the engine through time causing a build up of carbon deposits in the intake manifold etc.
