Welcome to the world of the reprogramming ecu and chip power. Here you will find everything you need to increase the power and performance of your car, without affecting its durability and factory warranty. We work with the best brands in the market and all of them are German because they are the only ones to get the TUV for its products.
Different ways to boost a car: there are several ways to get a increase of power in a car. The first is reprogramming ecu, the second chip of power and the third with electronic pedal. Let's see the differences between one and the other and see which you choose.
Reprogramming ecu: this is the most widespread in Spain, but very little used in the rest of the world. Consists in deleting all the data from the ecu of the vehicle, and then load them again. Summarizing is how to format your computer with windows XP to bring it to Windows 10. The big problem with this type of empowerment is that we can modify completely the ecu of the car with a few new parameters and is not reversible unless the rescheduler save your original maps to load them again if needed.
Chip power: it is the most used all over the world. Consists of connecting a chip of power or also called switchboard external to your car with all the data already loaded. What we do is replace certain car parameters in real-time in such a way that the ecu of the car is still running but reading these new data. If you would like to return to the previous state, we would only have to disconnect the chip-and-ready. This is ideal for use in car with less than 200,000 km, which are in series and which we don't want to lose the warranty of the car. Also widely used in cars, renting because you can take from car to car for a very low cost (just what the cost of the new cables and modification of ecu, about 80€).
Pedal-mail: this third option is used in the countries of northern europe. Is not to enhance the car but reduce the travel of the pedal electronically which improves the response of the car. We don't win more horses, simply better response. A very good combination is to use an on-chip power coupled with electronic pedal. On the one hand we won in horses, and on the other in response.
What Chip power or reprogramming electronic control unit?
Once you have arrived at this point we will have to choose between chip power + pedal-mail or reprogramming of ecu. As it is logical to choose the one which best suits our needs. Our recommendations are:
1-If your car is a car new or semi-new, with less than 200,000 km, you are unsure if you will like the new change and you want to leave your car fully OEM: Chip power + electronic pedal. The best brands are the German Race Chip and DTE Systems that are behind teams of engineers by creating the software for these chips. The rest of brands such as Italian or southern Europe are very unreliable and does not give warranties.
2-If your car is rather old man, is exempt from warranty, has a lot of miles and you are going to get your up to the end: reprogramming ecu. In a repgroamación switchboard ideally, before you charge is to look at all the parameters of the car and the fit-to-measure. Only the best brands such as CSR performance, TLR Sport or Revo do this, if you do a workshop neighbourhood forget, it is worse than any other thing.
However, if you have any doubts, ask us, specialists in chip power.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS OF CHIPS POWER:
What is a chip of power?
An on-chip power is a module that plugs into the engine of the vehicle, usually on the ramp, fuel injection, pressure sensor turbo, flow meter...
This module acts directly on the electronic vehicle's original falsifying the information received in the ecu and by changing the behavior of the vehicle.
These chips include driving modes and different programs to be able to choose the mode that best suits our driving.
What are the differences between an on-chip power and reprogramming?
Although it may seem like the same system, the differences are more substantial.
With a reprogramming traditional, we are modifying the parameter of the original vehicle, which is not reversible unless you go back to re-write the original parameters, this has a danger, if reprogramming does not complete successfully, you can get to gripar engine.
However, with a chip from power, never have that problem, and that acts directly on the original parameters without going to modify it, so all of the “changes” performed by the vehicle itself.
To make it more clear, an on-chip power acts in the following way:
The chip sends false information to the system through the sensor to which it is connected, such as, for example, we have a problem with the pressure of the turbo and is running at less bars than it should, then, the system acts supplementing that lack of power by increasing the injection, always within the original parameters, with this we optimize the engine performance, because the turbo is working properly, always working within the original parameters.
In addition to optimizing the operation of the motor, we managed to reduce the consumption of the vehicle using the engine inside of all of its capabilities.
What brand should I choose?
Within the world of the chips power there are two marks tips, namely:
• Race Chip
• DTE Systems
Both brands are German and of the highest quality, so the choice is left to the taste of the consumer, Race chip has a range more affordable while that DTE has a range more expensive but guarantees more power at its lowest version.
What kind of motors can I mount an on-chip power?
The chips power can only be installed on engines turbocharged Petrol or diesel commonrail, also supported by some diesel engines injector pump. Not valid for naturally aspirated engines.
However we have a seeker in order to find if they have a chip for our model.
What if my car is not in that list?
In this case, the DTE System provides us with an alternative, the pedal box or pedal-mail.
What is a pedal-mail?
A pedal-mail is a system that is installed in the proper accelerator pedal, as long as this is electronic.
Its operation is very simple, since the control of the electronic pedal we have several driving modes, these modes act on the pedal stroke, thus increasing the response of the car, it is very useful in automatic vehicles because they eliminate the famous lag.
Keep in mind that this product does not act on the motor, so that we will not increase or torque, or power, simply modify the behavior of the vehicle.
Can I mount a chip of power and a pedal-mail?
The answer is yes, systems are totally independent so that the use of one does not affect the other, you can mix brands, that is to say we can use a pedal box of DTE System and an on-chip power Race chip.
