The Unichip is a sophisticated, piggy back computer that works in harmony with your vehicle’s factory computer. It electronically resides between your car’s ECU and engine, giving you full control over your vehicle’s engine management system. The Unichip does not alter your vehicle’s factory engine management control unit in any way.
Increased Engine Power
The Unichip delivers torque gain and increased power across the entire RPM range. Power gains up to 13 % is common in normal aspirated vehicles and in turbo vehicles a 30% gain as measured by an accurate chassis dynamo-meter can be expected. It is however difficult to predict exact power gain because it is influenced by the design and condition of the engine and the factory calibration of the engine control unit. That said, the Unichip is far more advanced than “generic plug-in performance chips” and it delivers the most personalised power result every time.
Fuel economy is at the top of car manufacturers priority lists these days. However, even in this rat race for best fuel economy the Unichip stands it’s ground. The Unichip will almost always improve fuel economy in vehicles with even the slightest modification such as an aftermarket air intake. This is especially true and more obvious in older and highly modified vehicles. We receive frequent testimonies from customers about increased fuel economy after installing the Unichip.
Works in Harmony with ECU
A major advantage of Unichip is that it works in harmony with the factory ECU to enhance and unleash the best possible performance result without compromising engine durability. Unichip is loaded with an operating system and program which enables it to correctly communicate with your vehicle’s ECU without making physical, electrical, or electronic changes to the factory computer.
Suitable for Most Vehicles
The Unichip is a universally applicable module designed to work in virtually any vehicle. Most EFI cars, whether normally aspirated, turbocharged or supercharged, respond extremely well to Unichip enhancement. It is individually programmable and fully adjustable to cater to exhaust headers, cat back exhaust systems, high flow air cleaners, performance cam shafts, or larger turbochargers and inter coolers.
