Car Chip

A Well-Developed Car Chip Improves Both A Car's Performance And Economy

Car chip tuning is available for essentially all the car models available on the market today, because all modern cars use fuel injection and electronic engine management systems.  Such a chip is an electronic device that intercepts and modifies signals from the engine's ECU (electronic control unit), so it stands to reason that vehicles with mechanical fuel delivery systems like carburettors cannot be chip tuned.  However, not all chips are created alike, so be sure to have one fitted at a nationally and internationally known establishment with a sound reputation.

Standard, Mass-produced Car Performance is not Optimal

Your car performance may not be as good as it could be when you car leaves the factory and this is down to the constraints of mass-production.  Mechanical engineers realise that no two engines can ever leave the factory with exactly the same compression ratio, manifold ducting efficiency and many other parameters that should supposedly be identical but is not, because of natural variations in production tolerances.  Therefore, each engine should have its ECU programmed to suit it specifically, but that would simply take too long and cost too much money.  Car performance is therefore always slightly curtailed because of these “standardised” ECU settings with which cars leave the factory.

Bad Chip Tuning

A car chip that has not been well-developed may do more damage than good; there are many factors that have to be taken into account and here are just three of them:

  • A too lean mixture on a petrol engine may cause it to overheat.
  • A too rich mixture on a diesel engine may cause it to overheat.
  • Excessive ignition advance may cause detonation.

Chip tuning that prioritises power over everything else is asking for trouble and it is important to arrive at a happy medium between optimum power delivery, exemplary reliability and good economy.

Good Chip Tuning

Our car chip has become world famous for providing you with the best compromise and it can be tailored to suit your specific requirements through various mappings that can be programmed:

  • At full throttle, an aggressive mapping can be used that prioritises power delivery and performance over fuel economy, giving you maximum power when you put your right foot down.
  • At part throttle, a mild, economy-orientated map can be used to provide you with the best possible economy, like when you are driving sedately around town or cruising on the open road.
  • Additional mapping may be requested, like a track map that provides maximum power (and increased boost in turbo cars) for track use, or
  • A mapping that limits turbo boost and even revolutions, to safeguard your car against abuse while you leave it with a dealership for a service.

Having increased power and performance is good and well, but it brings little joy if your experience is tainted by excessive fuel consumption or poor reliability.  Speak to the experts today and bring out your car engine's full potential with car chip tuning that gives you the best of both worlds.
