Not only tuning fans want more power for their vehicle but often it is also the whole normal motorist who has got used to the performance of the car and now wants more power. Higher engine power means more driving pleasure. There are various methods for optimizing engine performance. The engine power can be achieved, for example, by a chip tuning or the replacement or conversion of certain vehicle parts. The following article informs about performance enhancement through autotuning.
Performance increase through chip tuning
Each engine has performance limits. Most vehicle manufacturers use a uniform engine base for their turbocharged models. Good example is the VW EA211 four-cylinder, for example, in the Passat C8 125 or 150 PS makes. The different power levels are often defined only by the electronics and are not automatically related to changes in the hardware. Same hardware, different software is becoming more popular. Defined by the vehicle manufacturer parameters can be changed later by a chip tuning. All optimized values are within the engine tolerances even after tuning. The engine protection systems integrated by the manufacturer continue to remain active at 100%. Prerequisite is of course a serious tuner. Chiptuning does not change the software or the hardware. Therefore, structural changes to the engine can be dispensed with in the first step because the mechanical and thermal engine reserves are maximally exhausted. Those who opt for a chip tuning performance increase, has the choice between different methods.
different possibilities - via chip tuning
The different methods differ in terms of engine life and cost. The rule of thumb is: The cheaper the offered chip tuning is, the less likely it is that the promised performance increase will actually be achieved. An example of this is the 10 cent optimization (10 cent Tuning). This method uses a resistance between the engine control unit and the temperature controller, which causes the controller to receive incorrect values. As a result, the supply of the fuel amount is increased at best. Engine damage and the omission of the manufacturer's warranty can be the result. For newer vehicles, the engine is unlikely to start at all. Hands off!!!
Performance improvement by means of tuning kit
By buying a chip tuning kit, you can not only significantly improve engine performance, but also save fuel, as the optimized torque enables you to shift into higher gears at an earlier point in time. Driving at lower speeds saves fuel if the driving style does not change compared to the driving style before the chip tuning. In this case, the costs for the performance improvement are amortized within a few months. Our recommendation goes to a "real chip tuning“In which new software is installed directly on the engine control unit. Compared to the chip tuning tuning boxes, this variant can be implemented much more individually because you can respond very specifically to the vehicle. Are less recommendable for us the tuning boxes that are placed in front of the control unit. Here, the values are essentially only falsified and the control part is "tricked into". But here, too, a generalization is not really possible because there are clear differences in terms of quality and approach.
Of course that had not happened yet!
