Vehicle performance is usually directly related to the type of engine you are running and the way it has been tuned. In most cases, the vehicle manufacturer will often do that to factory specification so that they all come out stock standard when you buy, but you will often find that they do the tuning too within approved safety specifications so that they don’t have to be responsible for mishaps on the road.
When you send you car in for auto chip tuning, you can push the performance of your vehicle beyond those specifications to give you more power and much better performance while you are driving. It’s important to note that even though your car is operating beyond the normal safety specs, it is usually still within a reasonable limit that can be handled by the person driving the vehicle.
How Auto Chip Tuning Actually Works
A standard internal combustion engine basically functions by burning a specific amount of fuel inside a cylinder. That resulting action is a driving force that helps turn a crankshaft, which eventually in turn causes the driving wheels to turn and push the car forward. Considering how short that explanation is, all you really need to know for the chip tuning is the fact that the chip itself manages the amount of fuel and air that gets pushed into those cylinders.
By managing the air flow and the fuel, you can increase the amount of power you get by adding more air and more fuel into the system. Unfortunately, you can’t just pump more fuel and air into the engine because you can cause serious problems inside your engine. You blow a gasket, wear out your piston rings or even cause the engine block to crack because you are essentially working with fuel that gets ignited under pressure.
All the chip does is it essentially manages the amount of air and fuel that enters the engine so that you get the right balance coming through whenever you need it. That way, when you are just driving around town or you want to pop down to the shops you can do so and it will keep things pretty standard, but when you want to punch it a bit, it will kick and deliver that extra power and speed that you need to get the car going.
The chip is installed into the onboard computer to help manage the fuel system and air intake and once it has been installed the whole vehicle needs to tune for the new system so that you can enjoy power on demand from your vehicle.
