What exactly is chip tuning?

By default, the values ​​of the parameters of the engine management software are not optimal. The engine management software can be affected or changed, with the focus being on retuning these parameters. We call this process chip tuning. When chip tuning, the values ​​of the parameters are thus optimized within the limit values ​​specified by the manufacturer of the respective vehicle. The amount of fuel that can be injected and the precise moment at which this happens are improved, so that chip tuning leads to an optimization of the performance.

What exactly does OBD chip tuning mean?

OBD is the abbreviation for On Board Diagnostics. OBD chip tuning is a way that is used to easily remove the software from the car. With the aid of a fault diagnosis plug, the data from the engine management is read, after which this data can be changed.

What advantages does OBD chip tuning offer in practice?

There are three important advantages of OBD chip tuning. Firstly, it is made impossible for authorized dealers to detect the changes through diagnostic systems. In addition, it is very easy to restore the motor driver to its original state. Finally, the software is easy and quick to install again, because there is no longer any need to solder in the ECU engine driver.

Chip tuning cannot be seen on the electronics, so apparently nothing has changed. It is, of course, true that a dynamometer can measure the improved power. However, this never happens at the dealer, especially because a diagnostic device is used for this. This equipment is not able to detect the adjustments.

Why is the software not optimized by car manufacturers?

Many people wonder why car manufacturers themselves do not directly ensure optimal performance by fine-tuning the software. This is mainly due to the fact that the cars are sold all over the world. In India there is an excellent quality of both fuels and motor oil. In addition, vehicles within India are regularly well maintained. Manufacturers have to take into account poor maintenance and a widely varying quality of fuel and engine oil. It is therefore not possible to optimize the software ex works. The good product quality and good maintenance in India ensures that the lifespan is preserved after chip tuning.
