Chip tuning your vehicle is a great way to improve the performance of you vehicle in a number of different ways. Not only does it provide your car with additional power when you need it, but it can also help you improve the fuel economy as well. A chip gets plugged into the onboard computer of your car and it takes control over the engine for you.
When you take a look at the overall performance of the vehicle and you consider the increase in power and fuel efficiency, you will see that the vehicle’s performance has increased by up to 15% In some instances you may even be able to get up to 20% depending on what it is that you do the vehicle and how you programme the chip inside it.
What Can These Chips Really Do to Your Car
These days, most new cars on the road have a built in onboard computer that helps control and govern the engine. In most cases the manufacturers will put the vehicles together according to an industry standard, so they can guarantee certain performance out of the vehicle. That way they can also give out warranties on their vehicles without worrying that the manufacturing itself is faulty.
When you modify a vehicle though, you tend invalidate the factory warranty by modifying the engine and they can no longer be responsible for anything that happens to the engine of your vehicle as a result of the modifications. However, if the modifications have been done correctly and professionally, you will immediately start to see a difference in the way your car runs.
The chips can be programmed for additional power or better fuel economy or a combination of the two; however that requires additional programming or a switching mechanism that allows you to change the chips function to switch from economy to power so that you can give your car a little more gas whenever you need it.
The Benefits of Chip Tuning Your Vehicle
If you vehicle has the ability to be chipped then you should definitely consider having it installed. If you are prone to longer journeys for work purposes then you would consider the fuel management to control how much fuel the vehicle is using. You can then extend the mileage per tank and prolong the life of the engine.
On top of that you can extend the distance between services as well, allowing you to save money on the maintenance of your vehicle with the help of chip tuning.
