Why do manufacturers limit power?
There are various reasons why manufacturers program engine software without applying the maximum of opportunities:
1. Manufacturers create artificial differences between various car models to sell cars with higher performance for a higher price.
2. Taxes - manufacturers overpay for more powerful cars, however, you will not have to do that after chip tuning.
3. Environmental requirements in the producing country - installation of particle filters, EGR valve and catalytic converter.
The car’s performance is supposed to be higher, thus, removing applied engine restrictions within reasonability does not do any damage to it.
How to check how much more powerful my car has become?
You will feel the power increase at once - the most important is to have comfortable driving not only to have certificates with altered indicators.
However, we can check indicators and confirm the exact power increase when issuing a certificate. We measure power at the Dyno stand - before chip tuning, we test the manufacturer’s software and after chip tuning we measure differences. This service is included in the deal “GOLD”.
How chip tuning can help to save fuel?
Decreased fuel consumption is another side benefit of the qualitatively processed chip tuning.
If you press a gas pedal to its maximum you cannot hope for decreased fuel consumption.
On the daily basis, fuel consumption reduces because of regulated fuel mix parameters, as well as, torque is higher with lower engine speed.
Thus, there is no need to press the gas pedal to the maximum as driving already is very dynamic.
Can chip tuning be done if a vehicle has a manufacturer’s warranty?
If you have a manufacturer’s warranty, you risk losing it. In our experience, there is no case when a warranty would have been removed after chip tuning.
Manufacturers usually come to a step forward to clients as they are not interested to cause a conflict, whereas we from our side provide all necessary for high-quality chip tuning - CVN, registration of programming activities etc.
However, despite all the above mentioned, it does not give a 100% guarantee that a dealer will not detect a remap. Therefore we take full responsibility for what we do.
How does chip tuning affect technical inspection?
The power unit and engine’s characteristics do not change during the chip tuning. All error codes and diagnostics tests will be the same as before.
Thus, diagnostics are the same as in the initial manufacturer's diagnostics software - remap does not affect it.
How does new software appear?
We persistently develop new high-quality software for various car models.
We have a rich experience in the fields of electronics and programming, we work on software updates all the time.
Most importantly - we do everything by ourselves, thus we take full responsibility for quality.
Does it make sense to apply chip tuning to atmospheric engines?
In the majority of cases, it does not.
In atmospheric engines performance gains are small, usually increase is by 2-5%.
Another story is if power has been limited on purpose. In these cases, the removal of limitations helps to reveal the car’s actual potential.
What should I do if I am not happy with the chip tuning results?
If you are not satisfied with the result, we easily will renew the initial settings. We save your car’s original software when you come to us.
After chip tuning, you have 10 days to test a car. If you are not satisfied with the result, we improve chip tuning or renew initial settings.
