Unichip was invented in 1995 to enable a skilled tuner to modify and customise a car’s electronics to increase performance. The Unichip undergoes continual development and the manufacturer of Unichip – Dastek, uses the latest design and production techniques to create a universal performance remappable ECU that works with the majority of the world’s car manufacturers.
Unichip allows you to adjust your engines fuel and ignition requirements and many other performance related functions, which allows you to extract the ultimate potential from your engine. Unlike other rudimentary modifications which will leave a footprint and tamper with the inner workings of your car, Unichip is a multifunctional, totally customisable ECU that can be geared exactly to your demands.
Unichip works by altering and optimising the original factory settings of a vehicle. Major car manufacturers ship cars to a number of different locations and environments. Varied climatic conditions, fuel quality, service intervals and driving styles will affect cars differently and manufacturers cannot hope to reflect this in their cars, and standardise their cars accordingly.
Unichip works by allowing you and/or your dealer to fine tune the settings of your car so that it is best suited to your driving, your environment and your requirements.
When a Unichip U-Fit is installed it never leaves any trace on your car. If your car is under warranty or through a hire purchase agreement, you can rest assured that the Unichip U-Fit will not tamper, change or leave any footprint on your car.
Competitor modifications are crude and simple. Figures are often manipulated, and often, performance results do not reflect reality. Unichip undergoes vigorous independent testing and our results speak for themselves. Contact us for more details about Unichip
Gains of around 8-10% are normal once a Unichip has been installed, as measured on a rolling road. On turbo petrol and diesel cars gains of 25% have been independently verified. How much you can extract from your car depends on the specifications and conditions of your car and engine. No two cars are the same, and your dealer will use before and after tests so you can objectively examine the results of having a Unichip.
In many conditions, Unichip will improve fuel economy as many modern fuel injected vehicles waste fuel by running very rich air/fuel ratios at part throttle openings. The Unichip can correctly optimise the air/fuel ratio over 12 throttle positions to maximise fuel economy for cruising and part throttle running.
With Unichip you can rest assured that your vehicle will be secure as the select-and-lock of Unichip will ensure that your car is safe when it is parked and unattended. If anyone does try to start the car, it will turn on but the engine will not start.
There are a number of different maps that you can set your Unichip to when it has been installed. You can have up to five maps from a power limit function map to an aggressively tuned map. When the Unichip is installed, a press of the button will change the entire performance and character of your vehicle.
