What is a Unichip Module?

As previously stated, the Unichip Module is a multi - functioning "Piggyback ECU". The Module is installed between your vehicle's stock ECU & your engine's data sensors - leaving all of your electronic and & mechanical components unaltered in the process.


Once installed, it's calibrated by our elite team of tuners to deliver an refined tune, typically programmed with up to 5 maps to cater for virtually any driving situation - on and off the roads. 





about us what is a unichip module piggyback ecu


What is a Piggyback ECU?

A Piggyback ECU is a type of Aftermarket ECU, designed to work alongside your vehicle's existing ECU. Intercepting information between your engine's sensors & it's ECU, a Piggyback ECU is able to manipulate the data, (or "signals") after it's been sent through your ECU - fooling your standard unit & creating it's own adjustments.


Considered a stepping stone between generic ECU remaps & a Standalone ECU, the Piggyback ECU is the most appropriate & cost-effective means of creating truly custom tuning files. Having said this, the Unichip Module can be used at any stage of tuning - with remarkable results through advanced tuning.

How does the Module work?

Unichip works by altering & optimising the original factory settings of a vehicle. Simply put, by working with & intercepting your factory ECU’s original settings, the Unichip will control power delivery using many different engine signals, & with consideration of many different environmental factors - delivering a unique multi map engine tune unlike any other. 


Typically, your Unichip module will have 5 separate maps that you’re able to choose in real-time – they’re all distinctly different & each offer a unique user experience. So, whether you feel like saving on fuel, or switching to performance mode on the open roads – we’ve got you covered. 


Our only interest is giving you the maximum amount of power, as safely as possible. Your engine’s integrity is our priority.
