MORE THAN JUST MAXIMUM SAFE POWER
UNICHIP IS A PIGGYBACK SYSTEM THAT CAN BE INSTALLED ON ANY VEHICLE WITH AN ECU
What this means is that the Unichip does not permanently change or reprogram the inputs from your vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU). The system simply intercepts the signals, changes them as required and sends them to the various engine components.
Better Fuel Economy
In light of our ever-increasing fuel prices, achieving better fuel economy has become a priority for most people, but they do not always know how to do it. Short of the oft-preached mantra of driving more slowly, what else can one do to improve the fuel economy of one’s vehicle, if at all?
Reprogramming the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit can be dangerous and you may lose the ability to revert to the standard settings if something goes wrong. If you have opted for a Unichip Easy Connect, you can plug it in and remove it as you wish, such as when you take your vehicle for a service or replace your vehicle.
MAX SAFE POWER
Many performance chips simply increase the fuel pressure, boost and throttle input. The feeling of power is great, but there is nothing that monitors engine temperature, changes inputs for different driving needs, measures over-fuelling and the fuel-air mixture or the many other elements that are required to deliver safe power.
TOWING & 4X4
Getting the most power from your engine does not always help when you are driving in a technical off-road section where good throttle response is more important than pure engine power.
For these conditions, you can select an off road setting on your Unichip that gives you more low-down power. This is also an ideal setting if you are towing a large caravan or boat, or towing someone who does not have the power of a Unichip from the mud or water.
Select and lock the vehicle in this setting when you park and are worried about the safety of the vehicle. In this mode the engine is rendered completely powerless and it will not deliver any power to the wheels. Your engine will merely turn, but nothing will happen.
ROAD SPEED LIMITING
Road-speed signals are normally digital signals generated by the speed sensor in the transmission. They can also be inductive signals, or sometimes the ABS system will send road-speed information over the CAN bus to the ECU. The ECU uses the speed signal to calculate road speed and automatic transmission shift points. You can use the Unichip to manipulate the road-speed signal in order to remove road-speed limiters.
We do not make empty promises.
Our current success rate is 399 out of 400. We know of no other product with this success rate on the market.
In the heyday of South African production car racing many championships were won by cars using Unichip technology. In 1997 the first-class F car to use Unichip technology dominated so comprehensively that it was deemed an “unfair advantage” and immediately banned in this rookie class! Up until we were banned from the Economy Run, more than 85% of all cars that won any class or category were using Unichip technology! **If you live outside South Africa please confirm the exact terms of the warranty with the main distributor for your country.
We don’t make any claims with the Unichip about how much better any car will be after fitting it. We let the results speak for themselves. Because no two cars are identical it is impossible to predict just how far from perfect the vehicle will be before fitting the Unichip. Some cars are closer than others and therefore the results will vary. On some cars you may get better fuel consumption but maybe not much more power. On others the increase in power might be good but the fuel consumption might remain the same. Some might get a lot of improvement in drivability. In most cases you should be able to improve all of the above. It all depends on how close to perfect the car’s existing map is for that particular vehicle.
