“Just a short note to thank you … on the conversions done on a number of our vehicles…and today on my Fortuner 3.0 diesel.
The Fortuner 3.0 diesel … is a completely different vehicle. The car was ok. On the open road it was acceptable but it felt sluggish around traffic specially at low rpm and it ran out of breath just on 3000 rpm. Now this is a PROPER car!!! I cannot believe the difference in the power and torque. It pulls really well from low down and on the open road it is unbelievable.
THANK YOU very much for everything you have done.”
"I have seen an immediate improvement in the acceleration, and there is an increase in the performance of my vehicle. The Turbo-lag has also improved.

“Toyota South Africa has made extensive use of Mr. Pieter de Weerdt’s company, Dastek, for many years as an outside supplier of components to improve the performance of the company’s racing, rally and Total Economy Run vehicles …
Toyota has dominated the Economy Run for the past 6 years …
… We have also not had any ‘come backs’ from using Dastek’s special components.”

“ … The car really drove well, and really had a lot of power.
“Just got a chip on my RAV4 - Brilliant product! Well done. I enjoy it very much.”
Toyota RAV 4
“ … I am very happy with the Unichip …
… picked up 20kw over standard, raising hp from 112kw to 132kw at the wheels! … punchier out of corners and really pulled noticeably harder between 2-3000rpm. … more eager to keep its speed and the throttle only needed the lightest touch to keep the speed constant.
All up, I think its cheap hp per dollar and has made the Prado more driveable all round. “

“I have a Unichip fitted … it works like magic!”
Toyota Hilux 3.0 D4D
“… much smoother all over the rev range … mighty deceptive and now gets a proper skedaddle on when required … overall I am thrilled with the results. …
“… Very responsive, good power and fab torque … Bloody brilliant!
… Car is utterly perfect now … It’s a proper thinking approach to optimizing I’d say!”
“… it is a product which is well ahead of time with its ease of adjustment, universality and reliability.
The product has been utilized in various applications within our company with great success and can be recommended without hesitation.”
“I have already had two Dastek Unichips installed in two of my previous cars, and I was more than happy for years!”
“ … I did not drive carefully for this evaluation; … Fuel consumption has improved from 14,5 ltr/100 to 12,6 ltr/100. … an average of two tanks …
There is only one problem with the DASTEK UNICHIP – How to keep the speed of the truck below 140kph……..! because if you give it its legs it just wants to go…..”
“… went from 21 litres / 100 km over 4 tanks, … to 15.4 litres / 100km … after fitting the Dastek chip, drivability was noticeably better.”
“Performance much smoother. Doing 6.5km/l average while towing my offroad trailer at 120 – 130km/h. Doing 7km/l average in town.”
“After fitting the Unichip from Dastek, I can do about 100km more in town … This increases to over 200km more per tank on the open road.”
“It makes approx 1-2 litres per 100km difference and a 10-15% increase in power.
A definite must have on the petrol.”
Power increased by 14.3% at 5000rpm …. ”
“The only chip we recommend is the “Unichip” … between 14 – 28% improvement in fuel efficiency … between 10 – 18% improvement in Performance.”

“ … we have won 7 South African Production Car Championships in various classes utilizing Dastek’s Unichip Technology.
This Unichip Technology has also enabled us to win endurance races and many victories in fuel economy runs, demonstrating their ability to fine tune the engines, not only for performance but economy as well.”
“We, as part of the McCarthy Group, recommend to all our Alfa, Nissan and Fiat customers the concept of remapping their car’s ECU’s to get maximum results from our local fuel.
… torque is better throughout the rev range, the maximum power is better and so is the fuel consumption.”
“Quite simply – it is a different vehicle!
… economy has improved 5% - 10% …
… drivability … has improved dramatically. Acceleration is smooth and gear changes appear to be crisper with a noticeable improvement in “lag” between gears. … as my wife puts it: ‘The car is happier.’
… investment in the Unichip … best aftermarket product I have used.”
“Dastek has been responsible for ECU development for Opel Motorsport South Africa’s Group N race cars for the past 4 years (1994 – 1998).
The product has always performed reliably and has afforded us the opportunity to be self-sufficient in terms of re-calibration and mapping of our Group N engines. …”
“AutoXtra, … have used Dastek’s Unichip on numerous customer cars with positive results.
… improvement in torque, fuel economy and general drivability … had no negative feedback.
… prepared a Renault Mègane RXE 2Lt for the Total Economy Run … with the management system fine tuned by Dastek, we won the 2lt class convincingly using 6.3lts less than our closest rival.”
