High Performance Chip

Fitting A High Performance Chip

If you want to get even more out of your high performance motor vehicle then you need to take a look at the vibrant after market fitment of chips for just these types of vehicles. The fitment of a high performance chip can allow a skilled tuner to get even more out of even the most high performance vehicle. A high performance chip piggybacks on the existing engine control unit and allows the tuner to reset the parameters of the factory fitted ECU. This can increase power output when the vehicle is under high revs, increase fuel economy under normal driving conditions and in some models of car even change braking and handling characteristics if these are under the control of the ECU.

When fitting a high performance chip it is essential that the owner of the motor vehicle finds out from te manufacturer whether or not the fitment of a high performance chip invalidates the manufacturer’s warranty on the motor vehicle. In some instances the manufacturer will give permission for the fitment of the chip, however in most instances the manufacture will indicate that fitment will invalidate the warranty. There is however a solution to this problem as some of the higher end chips allow the user to remove the chip prior to the car being services, this will mean that the default settings of the vehicle will automatically be restored.

Always make sure that your high performance chip is installed by an accredited and professional tuner. There are very few of these sophisticated devices that will allow the average user to set the performance parameters of a high performance vehicle. Often this requires highly sophisticated diagnostic equipment which is not available to the general public but only to accredited tuners.

If you would like to fit a high performance chip to your motor vehicle then only deal with professionals. For more information contact us.
