Chip Tuning Service Information

What is Chip tuning?

In chip tuning we adjust the parameters of the engine control in order to get more performance out of the engine. We optimize the specific maps, such as the boost, ignition, and fuel maps. It’s critical that the engine control’s safety features remain turned on in this situation. Modern engine controls have become extremely sophisticated as regulatory obligations, such as those relating to environmental protection, have gotten increasingly stringent. Few tuners are familiar with these functions and are aware of how they interact in the maps and at what moments. Our Top Tuners team has amassed the expertise required to produce a flawless outcome for your engine – much beyond the standard tuning parameters: we unleash the potential of your engine!

What benefits may chip tuning provide for me?

With our skilled chip tuning, we can boost your engine’s performance by up to 40% while putting a low additional stress on the overall engine. We also don’t forget about fuel consumption: it is feasible to cut fuel consumption while maintaining the same driving style. Your engine will be much more sporty and customised to you.

When do I need chip tuning?

Chip tuning is the most basic form of engine tuning: The first step in improving your engine’s performance is to tune the engine electronics. It may often result in performance boosts of up to 40% in most circumstances. If you still want more performance, for example, from upgraded hardware like a turbocharger, new injection nozzles, or a longer down pipe, you’ll need specific tweaking (chip tuning) to fully harness the potential of your updated hardware components.

Please bear in mind that when the components of your programme are updated, you must modify your software professionally. Our chip tuning specialists would gladly assist you!

Will my car still be practical to drive on a daily basis after the chip tuning?

Yes, after the chip tuning, your car will be perfectly suitable for regular drive. You may drive your car as usual in normal life without any concerns. Only one thing has changed: you will now be crushed into your seat when driving at full throttle! This sense of acceleration is what drives us to tune engines. We like the adrenaline rush, which is comparable to what you get on a roller coaster, and we want to share it with you.

Chip tuning makes sense because of the makers' reserves.

Engine makers always provide for certain reserves throughout the development stage, ensuring that each engine performs properly at all times and in all environments. These reserves might be as high as 40% depending on the engine. Both the hardware (that is, the fitting elements) and the software that controls the hardware must be built with the general public in mind. The makers ponder the following: Who will be the one to drive it? Is it a grandmother who travels two kilometres to the bakery or a child on the racetrack? What is the location of the engine? In the frigid north, at minus 20°C, or in the scorching heat of the Sahara Desert? All of these elements must be considered by the makers in order to guarantee that the engine they create achieves its intended performance without causing any damage.

How Chip tuning reduces fuel consumption

Once again, you must first comprehend how engine makers plan and proceed: The fuel consumption is determined by legally prescribed driving cycles. However, real-world fuel usage is influenced by a variety of factors, including the injection quantity recorded in the engine management unit’s map. The injection map is created on a roller chassis dynamometer, i.e. with a car on the roller, while a new engine is being constructed. To keep the rolling resistance as low as possible, this procedure simulates rather implausible conditions, such as extremely tiny and thin tyres. Unfortunately, these parameters do not exist in reality, and this is precisely where the cost-cutting potential of mapping under real-world settings resides. We can replicate a very authentic atmosphere on our equipment and so tune the engine to perfection. We can identify the specific operating state when the engine burns more gasoline than is required. In the long run, this may even save you money! Companies with a large fleet, such as business cars, benefit from this sort of optimization. Costs may be amortized quickly using our optimization under real-world test settings. Money is saved, and the ecology benefits as well.

The chip tuning procedure

The chip tuning process is broken down into multiple phases. We read the error memory after getting the car. This guarantees that the vehicle’s memory does not include any electrical faults. Following that, a visual check of the engine compartment is performed to rule out any boost system leaks or other flaws. If the car is in good working order, we read out and save the original software from the engine control unit. The settings of the particular maps are then optimized. We flash the optimized data onto the engine control unit after the programming is finished. Following that is a test drive, during which all metrics are monitored and read out in real time. If a value is out of range, it will be modified in the software and flashed on the control unit once more. The programming is complete once all settings are inside the ideal range, and you may enjoy your improved performance!

What if I wish to return my car to its original state?

We read out your original data and save it on our server before improving your control unit. You can flash it in our shop later.

Our final thoughts on chip tuning

With the real engine operating, we are able to boost performance through our latest equipment. This is done in the same manner you drive your automobile on the road, taking into consideration all environmental characteristics and peripherals. We tailor the specific software parameters in a targeted manner to a sporty tuning in order to fully use the engine’s potential. We leave the manufacturer’s component protection on; in most situations, gasoline is even saved! As a result, better engine performance does not always imply more pollutant emissions.

At a glance, these are the advantages of chip tuning:

  • More performance
  • Less fuel consumption
  • Better environmental protection
  • Including TÜV
