Performance Chips - Frequently Asked Questions
Does a performance chip damage my engine?
No. A performance chip will not cause damage to your engine or transmission as it does its job of enhancing horsepower and torque. That's because the additional power is generated by harmlessly adjusting your air/fuel ratio and ignition timing to the best performance settings... actually a performance chip can even protect your engine from damage, given that it ensures everything acts in perfect unison at entirely correct settings.
What is the difference between remapping & chipping?
You may have heard of remapping and right now might be thinking the process sounds quite similar to performance chips. The result is actually very similar - better performance and efficiency from your engine - and both processes involve adjusting the Engine Control Unit (ECU) to illicit these results. However remapping relates to the reprogramming of the existing ECU without opening it, whereas a performance chip requires the ECU to be physically opened.
How much extra horsepower can a performance chip add?
With a decent performance chip you can expect to see power gains from 10 to over 50 horsepower, with usually improvements on zero to 60mph of about half a second.
Are performance chips legal?
Yes. Performance chips do not change the emissions of your vehicle at all and so are totally legal.
Will a performance chip void my warranty?
Almost certainly, absolutely, yes. Any tinkering with your vehicle's computer will almost always void your warranty.
How much does it cost to install a performance chip?
Professional installation can cost anywhere fro+7m $400 to $700 depending on the type of vehicle that you have. If you want to install yourself, the component cost range runs between $300 and $600, again depending on your vehicle.
