With the technology advancements in modern-day vehicles today, tiny “computers” control and monitor the vehicle’s engine in nearly every new car that is purchased. This device is connected tightly to the engine. At this point, the engine control device takes internal signals and then calculates commands for the ignition, emission, and injection controls.

By now, you may be wondering what so-called Chiptuning is. In a simplified breakdown, chip-tuning provides two possibilities to increase the performance of your vehicle’s engine. A popular route is done by a second electronic control device. This is also called an OBD-tuning.

The chiptuning operation may sound complicated, but it’s actually fairly simple. The electronic of the additional device modifies the engine control in real time, which means that you can optimize the maps several thousand times per second. This results in a significant power improvement to your vehicle. The fuel consumption can even be reduced, making Chiptuning a popular option.

At RaceChip, we design our chip-tuning to encourage a do it yourself, simple installation. For the most vehicles, it only takes about ten to fifteen minutes to program, and no special tools are needed. All you have to do is connect the RaceChip chiptuning module with a plug system to the engine and the engine control device. Then you simply fix the RaceChip module, and you’re done. With RaceChip chip-tuning, you can individually adjust the performance increase of your engine to your road behavior. For example, if you want to deviate from the optimized basic settings for your vehicle, you can adjust maximum performance and fuel-saving, Eco-tuning. Another advantage of OBD Tuning is that the V-max can be neutralized. Even better, with OBD Tuning, a higher performance increase might be achieved.

If you end up wanting to sell your vehicle, you can remove the RaceChip module. Once removed, this chip generally cannot be tracked, and you can hold onto the chip until you are ready top put it in a newly purchased vehicle. This makes chiptuning a wonderful investment for your modern vehicle.
