Why RaceChip outperforms ECU remaps

  • Plug & Play in
    10 minutes

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. In contrast, the process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU.

  • All Power
    Reserves activated

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip as well as remapping use software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). If durability is relevant, the results are usually the same, because they are only limited by the available power reserves.

  • Fine-Tuning also
    after Installation

    Remapping

    If you want, you can further adjust the individual software to your needs after installation e.g. via the RaceChip Smartphone App. Remaps are set in stone and not adjustable.

  • Two Engine
    Protection Systems

    Remapping

    Manufacturers protection mechanisms remain functional, plus additional RaceChip Engine Protection System. Remaps may overwrite or change manufacturers protection mechanisms.

  • Safe Engine
    Warranty

    Safe Engine Warranty

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered. Remapping leads to a loss of the manufacturer’s warranty.

  • Easy Reset to
    Factory Setting

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    In contrast to remapping, a RaceChip can be removed in a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Plug & Play in 10 Minutes

RaceChip

Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. RaceChip works right out of the box.

Remapping

The process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU, if done wrong.

All Power reserves activated

RaceChip

Uses software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). RaceChip utilizes power reserves smart and efficiently and can’t be outperformed by remapping in most dimensions.

Remapping

Also limited by the power reserves, if durability is relevant. Power upgrades by 40% are castles in the air without exchanging components or harming your car in the long run.

Fine-Tuning also after Installation

RaceChip

A RaceChip is programmed specifically for your engine. On top, you can fine-tune the settings after installation, if required (e.g. your specific engine variants slightly).

Remapping

Remaps may (but not have to) take standard factory model variations into account. Though, after installation they are set in stone and can’t be adjusted to your individual needs later on.

Two Engine Protection Systems

RaceChip

Manufacturers protection mechanisms remain functional, plus additional RaceChip Engine Protection System. This ensures maximum safety and longevity of your car.

Remapping

Manufacturers protection mechanisms can get overwritten. This e.g. leads to your engine not detecting overheating or too much pressure anymore. I.e. wear and tear are increased above an acceptable level.

Safe Engine Warranty

RaceChip

RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years, which covers all relevant engine components. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered.

Remapping

Remapping is detected during a normal service, which definitely leads to a loss of the manufacturers’ engine warranty. Most remappers do not offer a warranty on your engine.

Easy Reset to Factory Setting

RaceChip

Easy removal within a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Remapping

Removal is difficult and will remain detectable (manufacturers’ ECU counts each flash). Moreover, a remap may be overwritten during the service of your car.

RaceChip: Complex technology. Simple installation.

Plug in to your engine to release its power reserves

Sophisticated functionality – simple installation

The RaceChip Plug & Drive system: The tuning chip is placed in the wiring loom between the engine controls and sensors. No specialist knowledge or tools are required for this easy process.

Unlike conventional tuning boxes RaceChips are intelligent multi-channel boxes that work like mini computers or “add-on ECUs” and modify a variety of electronic sensor signals in real time.

Better fuel economy

Save money and natural resources

With RaceChip you don't have to choose between better performance or better fuel economy. RaceChip lets you have both. With appropriate driving habits, you can improve fuel economy by up to 20% when using RaceChip.
Besides increasing the efficiency of the fuel injection RaceChip

increases the available torque, which allows for earlier gear changes and overall less shifting. This lowers your car's fuel consumption. In contrast to remaps, tuning boxes are not able to fake the l/100km number displayed in the car.

RaceChip is made in Germany
and Autobahn tested

German cars are considered the best in the world. The leading company for chip tuning also hails from Germany: Today, RaceChip products are used in more than 135 countries. Over 500,000 satisfied customers enjoy more power, faster acceleration and a sophisticated driving performance.

RaceChip products are completely developed and manufactured in Germany and extensively Autobahn tested.

The new RaceChip App: Redefining Chip Tuning

Personalized engine tuning at the palm of your hand

As innovation leader in the field of chip tuning, RaceChip has developed a Smartphone app that enables you to communicate via Bluetooth with your performance chip. You can switch between three performance levels, which are specifically customised for your engine: Efficiency, Sport and Race.
The integrated warm-up timer allows you to set a warm-up phase for your engine before releasing the performance upgrade. This protects the engine even in the coldest winter nights.

The tuning software is shipped pre-programmed with settings that are specifically designed for your car. However, if you wish to make fine-tuning adjustments to these settings (e.g. because the power of standard factory models can variate +/- 10%), we’re able to adjust the settings for you - simply providing them as a download file.

In order to make use of this amazing extra feature please add the Smartphone Connect feature for just 50 EUR to your RaceChip Ultimate in the checkout process.

Performance on demand
