Everything Works in Harmony

Everything works in Harmony Tuning a vehicle is not fitting white speedometer dials, wings, skirts or even different camshafts or exhausts! Tuning is simply adjusting the three things an engine works with to be at the best possible combinations for all conditions....

Free Flow Exhaust System

Do Free Flow Exhaust Systems Really Work? In years gone by, engine tuners used to throw three words at you for extracting more performance from your engine. These were head, cam, and exhaust. Because an engine is basically an air pump, the idea is to get more air into...

Altitude Can Determine Your Car’s Attitude

Altitude influence Does altitude influence engine performance at all? Let us think about this for a moment. An internal combustion engine’s power output depends on the amount of air that it can suck into its combustion chambers. The more air it can get, the more fuel...

Fuel Consumption Data

Suspicious claims Claims about fuel consumption data can be the subject of many heated discussions. During such discussions, it is often difficult to determine fact from misinformation. You will stumble upon that car owner claiming that he can squeeze 16 km/l from his...

Wheels And Tyres: The Pros And Cons Of Fitting New Ones

Wheels and Tyres – What is the difference? We need to do something before discussing the pros and cons of fitting new tyres and/or wheels to your vehicle. Believe it or not, but there are people who use wheels and tyres as referring to the same thing. They are not....
Tyres – Understanding Them

Tyres – Understanding Them

Tyres – Understanding Them Better. Car tyres are so technologically advanced that they rarely call attention to themselves, so we hardly spare them a thought. However, there are certain things you have to know about these vitally important car components. Think for a...

Engine Control Unit (ECU) Magic

Engine Control Unit (ECU) Magic. The engine control unit (ECU) or engine management system (EMS) is certainly a revolutionary innovation. It was only an idea in someone’s mind’s eye back in the 1970s and 1980s. Indeed, electronic controls for automotive applications...

Money Matters – Spend It Well

Money matters, spend it well. Cars are expensive and often emotional purchases. Many people see their cars as extensions of their personalities. As such, they often want their cars to be just as unique as they are. To this end, people spend thousands on after-market...

Not All Engines Are Created Equally

It is sad but true when it comes to engines, they don’t manufacture them similarly. The user manual and official literature might state that your car’s engine produces, let’s say, 100 kW.  Well, they just round that figure off from the average that they obtain from other similar engines. Very few of these engine types will develop exactly 100 kW. The reason is that engines are mechanical devices that consist of hundreds of parts. These parts all have to fit together well to make it work. The constraints of economical mass production mean that manufacturers allow a certain tolerance range for the parts it manufactures. That means that these parts have to be of certain dimensions within an accepted range of variance. It would simply be too expensive – and virtually impossible – to mass-manufacture engines to such fine tolerances that they are identical.

When It Comes To Car Tuning, Unichip Knows That “Everything Works As A Unity”

Car tuning does not happen in exclusion, it affects a system. Within any system, there is not a single redundant part or component. Every part and every component serves a specific purpose. At Unichip, we understand this concept perfectly well. This is especially true when it comes to car tuning. We apply this principle throughout the design process of our revolutionary Unichip tuning device. The Unichip tuning device tune and optimise certain parts and components within the greater system of the combustion engine. Doing so ensures that the entire system functions better.

Can Vehicle Chip Tuning Achieve Balance?

Vehicle chip tuning nowadays is not as it was in the olden days. In the olden days, it was different. Vehicle tuning and modifying meant we had to ready ourselves to sacrifice some aspect in the process. The following examples may bring this point over in a more practical way. You decide to strengthen your vehicle’s suspension to improve handling and road-holding, but now you are paying the price in ride comfort. You modify your engine to improve horsepower and torque in order to gain better performance, but now you suffer when it comes to fuel economy.
