Ford Ranger 3.0 TDCi | U-Connect Plug & Play Uni chip Performance chips
How It Works
The Ford Ranger U-Connect unit is not to be confused with the mostly, overseas sourced chips, local condition non-specific chips and re-flash methods of tuning that most performance enthusiasts seem familiar with in which the OEM ECU code is simply generically re-written with a hand held programmer via the vehicle’s OBD port.
With the Ford Ranger U-Connect, all the changes occur within this unit and are electrically communicated to your vehicle’s engine control system. No changes are made within the OEM computer, and thus all the engine safety parameters as set by the manufacturer remain in place.
The Ford Ranger U-Connect unit comes as a complete stand-alone product, complete with a wiring harness that plugs directly into the OEM ECU via connectors that are perfectly matched to the factory connectors on your vehicle.
There is no dangerous or complicated cutting into of wires on your vehicles existing main wiring harness and there is also no room for errors by wiring the wrong wires together.
From start to finish, most installation times are less than five minutes (depending on the options you choose) and everything stays as is in your vehicle. No extended and inconvenient vehicle down time, no long hours spent on the dyna, and no stripping and modifying of parts.
As already mentioned, the U-Connect unit is completely removable, and this means that you can choose to remove the unit from your vehicle when you want to sell it or you can transfer it to another vehicle of the same model type should you upgrade your vehicles.
The basic U-Connect unit comes in the form of a unit that has only one performance option fitted and is non-switchable to other performance maps.
But you can also opt for the more flexible multi-map unit, which includes a two-position option via which you can change between a standard map and the upgraded map, or you can configure that same unit to allow you to choose from up to five different map settings for your vehicle.
So now you can have an everyday traffic map, a map for towing, a map for open road performance but to name a few of the options that can be tailor made for whatever motoring requirement you might have.
At this stage, this technology and switching capability is via a neat and functional unit supplied with the U-Connect unit, but Bluetooth switching is currently being developed so that you can change the performance map on your car via your cell phone in the future.
