Why you should install a Unichip in your vehicle

Unichip – Frequently Asked Questions
· What is the Unichip?
Unichips are fully programmable engine management systems which allow 408 fuel and ignition parameters to be altered through a vehicle’s standard Engine Control unit (ECU) to deliver maximum power, optimised drivability and improved fuel economy.
Unlike other performance chips, the Uni Q chip is not a replacement pre-programmed chip that is made to fit all vehicles of the same sort.

Unichips work in harmony with the standard ECU and is mapped on your engine while on a chassis dynamometer to obtain the safest maximum power, torque and optimum fuel economy.

Unichip vs other chips



Unichip Plug and Play

· Why should I install a Unichip to my Vehicle?

The most obvious reason is to increase engine performance.
Significant gains in torque and power across the entire RPM range are possible.
In addition, the engine will be smoother, deliver greater response and maximise fuel efficiency at all RPM and throttle positions.
A second reason is to harness the performance value of engine and exhaust modifications.
Standard engine management systems are not programmed to cater for exhaust branches, gasflowed cylinder heads, high performance air filters or reprofiled camshafts.

· How does the Unichip Increase Power & Torque?

Every engine requires optimum ignition timing and air fuel ratio at all RPM and load conditions.
The Unichip gives the experienced Dynamometer technician the access to, and ability, to adjust and optimise both the ignition and fuel system.
The Unichip has 17-RPM sites between 500 RPM and 8000 RPM and 12 load sites between zero throttle position and wide-open throttle position.
This equates to 204 possible adjustments for fuel and a further 204 adjustments for ignition timing. If you need more information, ask the Expert at the SAC Branch near you.


· How much extra Power can I expect from the Unichip?

Power gains of 10 KW to 30 KW are commonplace, as measured by an accurate chassis dynamometer.
Whilst less common, power gains of 50 KW have been verified.
The exact power gain however depends on the design and condition of the engine and the factory calibration of the engine control unit.
No two engines are identical.
The Unichip results represent the optimisation of each individual engine.

The Unichip results are verified by before and after dynamometer tests measured at 100% throttle opening across the entire rev range.

Ask your local SAC service provider about the various options available and the power figures associated with them.

· Will the Unichip Improve my Car’s Fuel Economy? Yes…

In most driving conditions, the Unichip will improve fuel economy.
Many modern fuel injected vehicles waste fuel by running very rich air fuel ratios at part throttle openings.

With the Unichip, it is a simple procedure to correctly adjust the air fuel ratio over 12 throttle positions and maximize the fuel economy for cruising at part throttle.

Ask your local SAC service provider about figures associated with your vehicle.

· How is the Unichip different from other “Performance Chips”?

The Unichip is a supplementary engine management system.
As such, it is far more advanced than “generic plug-in performance chip” products.
It is individually programmable to meet the requirements of the engine and the driver.
Being fully adjustable, the Unichip can cater for non-standard, current and future engine modifications.

Best of all, the Unichip can deliver the most personalised power result every time – uniquely tuned for fuel type and rating, and even particular ambient conditions of operation. Get a Unichip at the SAC Branch nearest to you.
