UNICHIP VERSION Q BY DASTEK
Unichip is a state of the art piggy-back ECU (Engine Control Unit), designed to optimise the tuning of your petrol car in harmony with your existing ECU. Because every UNICHIP is live tuned to your vehicle, you can be sure you're geting the very most out of your car and any modifications you've made to it.
When a car comes from the factory, it's ECU is set up with very cautious settings from the manufacturer, designed to take account of a wide variation in engineering tolerances, driving conditions and environmental factors. To fine tune each engine off the production line would take more time money and resources than makes sense for the manufacturer.
This is where the UNICHIP comes in. Using the up-to-the-minute tuning facilities of the UNICHIP we can guarantee to give you 100% of your engine's performance 100% of the time. What's more, using our unique modular design UNICHIP can control just about any performance modification you can think of, including Turbochargers, superchargers, nitrous injection, water injection, propane injection, launch control, full throttle gearchanges and much more. Check out the features below and compare it to any other engine management upgrade - we're sure you'll be impressed.
FAQ on UniChip Version Q
Q. How much power will I get from fitting a UNICHIP?
A. As much as is possible! As every car is live tuned on a rolling road and every car is different, it's impossible to quote exact figures, but most normally aspirated (non-turbo) cars will see 7-12bhp gains, with turbocharged cars giving anything from 20-60bhp depending on make or model. However, no other chip will give you more.
Q. What makes the UNICHIP better than the competition.
A. In short, live-mapping. Only UNICHIP is fully customised to your individual car, so only UNCHIP can get the maximum performance out of your car whilst retaining all the standard safety and diagnostic functions of your standard ECU.
Q. Will it damage my car?
A. Absolutely not. All cars are tuned within the manufacturers safety limits. UNICHIP achieves its gains by running the engine more efficiently, not more harshly.
Q. Will it harm my fuel economy?
A. No. Because UNICHIP is tuned for maximum performance at full throttle and fuel efficiency at partial throttle, your fuel economy is actually likely to improve slightly provided your driving style remains the same.
Q. How detectable is the UNICHIP?
A. Because the original ECU's programming is not affected, it will be invisible to the on-board diagnostics. And because of the unit's compact size it can be installed virtually anywhere in the car to make it as discreet as possible. The most obvious way of spotting it is by driving the car! However you should ALWAYS declare ALL performance modifications to your insurance company.
Q. Why should I install a Unichip in my car?
A. The most obvious reason is for power gains across the entire RPM range. In addition, your engine will be smoother, more responsive, and get maximum fuel efficiency. If you have a modified engine, the Unichip will provide the full performance potential of your modifications. Standard engine management systems are not programmed to optimize for exhaust headers, cat back exhaust systems, high flow air cleaners, performance cam shafts, or larger turbochargers and intercoolers, etc… and therefore do not provide maximum power when those components are modified.
