Unichip Q NOW AVAILABLE!!

Post by GotBoost on Sun 28 Jun 2009, 20:18

Hi Guys,

Just like to make you aware that i am now an official dealer for the Dastek Unichip Q, with prices starting from around 400 upwards depending on vehicle specifics. These piggybacks can be fitted to almost any vehicle and offer the advantage of 'live mapping' as opposed to the ecu flashes, this process provides 100% of the available power for any engine config, at a fraction of the cost of a full standalone system. The Unichip is obviously easily remapped in the future when you make more changes to your vehicle.

For further info or to make an enquiry, please email GotBoostTuning@aol.com or visit www.GotBoost.co.uk





The New Uni Q

What is Unichip?

Unichip is a fully programmable engine management system, which allows 408 optimised fuel and ignition parameters to be channeled through a vehicle's standard Engine Control unit (ECU) to deliver maximum power, optimised drivability and improved fuel economy.
Unlike other performance chips, the Unichip is not a replacement pre programmed "one size fits all" chip. Unichip works in harmony with the standard ECU and is mapped live on our rolling road to obtain the safest maximum power, torque and optimum fuel economy for your engine.


Why should I install a Unichip to my car?

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 maximize 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 changes, cat back exhaust systems, high flow air cleaners, performance camshafts or larger turbochargers and intercoolers.
How does Unichip increase engine power?

Every engine requires optimum ignition timing and air fuel ratio at all RPM and load conditions. Unichip gives the experienced Dynamometer technician the access to and ability to adjust and optimise both the ignition and fuel system. 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.

How much extra power can I expect from Unichip?

Power gains of 10 bhp to 20bhp are commonplace, as measured by an accurate chassis dynamometer. Whilst less common, power gains of 40bhp 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. Unichip results are verified by before and after dynamometer tests measured at 100% throttle opening across the entire RPM range.

How is Unichip different from "performance chips"?

Unichip is a piggyback 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 engine and driver. Being fully adjustable, Unichip can cater for non-standard, current and future engine modifications. Best of all, unichip can deliver the most personalized power result every time - uniquely tuned for fuel type and octane rating, even particular ambient conditions of operation. Unichip can also be used for idle control, drive extra injectors for aftermarket turbo installations, eliminate road speed governors and control turbo boost.

Is it safe to tune my car on a Dynamometer?

Yes, it is safe. A dynamometer does not create any greater load on the engine than what you experience in normal driving conditions. Very efficient cooling fans are utilized to ensure safe engine temperature control.

Does the Unichip need to be serviced or retuned?

There is no need to readjust the Unichip unless the engine has been modified. It is nearly impossible for the Unichip data to change after the Unichip ECU has been programmed, causing the engine to be detuned. It is possible however for the fuel pressure to drop (if the fuel pump deteriorates) which would cause the engine to run a leaner air fuel ratio than normal. Other items such as fuel injectors and spark plugs will need servicing from time to time which will also change the state of engine tune.
What time is required to install Unichip?

This depends on the engine configuration and whether the engine is standard or modified, normally aspirated or turbocharged.

How much to fit/map a unichip that i already have?

was removed from an old engine (1.8 16v with mods) when i fitted the new new engine (2.0 16v)

it is the older model i have i'll dig it out and see

it was mapped before with a 2nd map for nitrous oxide with 50jet and since removing that engine/unichip i've not had the same pull from the nos is that something you could do (provided you can get in to the software)
