Consumers are often grappling with the decision between buying a car that performs or one that doesn’t hurt their wallet at the gas pump. New hybrid models are on the market, but it is really possible to increase your vehicle’s power while actually saving fuel? Engine tuning by racechip allows you to increase engine power without compromising any of your vehicles features. Turbo diesel and turbo petrol engines can achieve up to 31% more power with this chip tuning technology and save up to 1 litre of gas per 100 kms.
So how does it work? Engine tuning by racechip is exactly what the name describes—a computer chip is retrofitted to your vehicle’s model. Data about injection timing, injection pressure and boost pressure from the engine control unit is analyzed and then used to improve the overall performance of the engine. Less fuel is required, allowing your car to reach optimal performance while saving you money. And there’s no risk to your vehicle’s main software because it remains unchanged. Depending on the make of your vehicle, installation of the racechip can take approximately 10-15 minutes. It’s the best of both worlds: adjust performance to your driving habits and maximize fuel-saving.
