Car Performance

A Unichip Can Improve Your Car’s Performance

One can argue that power is not everything, but very few things are more satisfying than having a vehicle that faithfully responds to throttle inputs and delivers ample performance for safe overtaking, when you need it most.  In addition, car performance is very important in motorsport and for drivers who frequently use their vehicles in staged events to show off their performance, or on a race track.

For this reason, chipping has become an important industry.  A competently programmed “chip” affords a vehicle owner far more control over his vehicle’s engine control unit, offering possibilities that were not possible with the standard ECU settings. While car performance can often be improved to a marked degree, a non-invasive piggyback chip that manipulates the ECU’s outputs can be put to great use for all types of purposes.  Since such fine control is possible, lower rev limits can be imposed for when the vehicle is left at a dealership for servicing.  Similarly, lowered boost pressure can be set for vehicles with forced induction.  Speed limiters can also be imposed in places where strict speed enforcement is crucial, like at mines. 

Of coure, most private vehicle owners will pursue chipping to enhance their vehicles’ performance and economy and very favourable results are possible with most brands of vehicle.  The standard ECU settings with which a vehicle leaves the factory are merely averaged settings meant to work reasonably well on a wide cross section of engines. Chipping can fine-tune these settings to suit your particular engine, enhancing power under full throttle conditions and improving economy under part throttle conditions.

The Unichip piggyback chip represents the state of the art and is the result of many years’ research and development. To find out more about how it can benefit your car’s performance and economy today, contact us.
