Chiptuning: More driving pleasure due to modifications of the vehicles’ electronic.
In modern vehicles, small computers control and monitor the engine. This computer, the so-called control device is connected to the engine with cables and plugs. The engine control device receives analogue and digital signals and then calculates control commands for ignition, injection, emission control and others.
, Basically, Chiptuning provides two possibilities to increase the performance of an engine: via an additional electronic control device or a so-called OBD-tuning.
Chiptuning via an additional control device.
For Chiptuning via an additional control device either you or a garage installs an additional electronic control device which is connected to the engine and the actual engine control device. There are no constructional modifications of the engine or the engine control device.
The operation is really simple: The electronic of the additional device modifies the engine control in real time. You optimize the maps several thousand times per second and thus create a significant and directly noticeable power improvement. At the same time – when your road behaviour is the same – the fuel consumption can be reduced.
RaceChip® Module as additional control device
RaceChip® Chiptuning is designed to enable in most cases a DIY-installation. For the most vehicles it takes about 10 to 15 minutes and no special tools are needed. You only have to connect the RaceChip® module with a simple plug system to the engine and the engine control device, fix the RaceChip® module, and that’s it.
With RaceChip® Chiptuning you can individually adjust the performance increase of your engine to your road behaviour, if you want to deviate from the optimized basic settings for your vehicle. You can adjust “maximum performance”, “fuel-saving eco-tuning” or an expedient mixture of both.
