10 February 2012
Sorry that I am only touching bases with you now.
I hope you had a relaxed slide into 2012.
For us it has been a busy start and as you can see quite a few vehicles have been updated and added on the Dyno page.
Please be advised that our prices on headers (branches) & related exhaust components will increase by 10 % on the 1'st March :(
I get quite a few eMails that read similar to “die diesel triton hy kom nie naby die hilux se kragsyfers nie”. This is referring to the power gains by tuning.
It takes time & development, as well as experience to squeeze every last bit of reliable power out of a vehicle !
Of course it helps if you have the chance to work on a race vehicle for many hours J
For instance on the 3L D4d Hilux we control boost, timing & fuelling whilst most aftermarket chips are no better than a glorified fuel pressure regulator.
On some Diesel racing-vehicles we have gone into a super-enrichment scenario; where we really add loads of fuel to the motor for a short period ! Similar to where we go into over-boost on some Turbo cars. First tried successfully in the early 90’s, on my Lancia Delta integrale J
Because no two cars are identical it is impossible to predict just how far from perfect the vehicle will be before fitting the Unichip. Some cars are closer than others are and therefore the results will vary. On some cars you may get better fuel consumption but maybe not much more power. On others the increase in power might be good but the fuel consumption might remain the same. Some might get a lot of improvement in drivability. In most cases you should be able to improve all of the above. It all depends on how close to perfect the car's existing map is for that particular vehicle.
We promise the customer that the car will be as light as possible on fuel when he drives calmly and it will make as much safe power as possible when he puts his foot flat on the accelerator. We also promise him that if within three months he feels that it is not worth having the Unichip we will remove it and refund him the full amount, including installation and mapping fee.
We do not make any other promises.
We strive to promise less but do more.

Some have advised that they have difficulty browsing my site or that it looks incomplete.
So far it has always been an issue either with settings or “fingers” on the recipient side ;)
Please do advise if there is a fault ?
The index is in the red bar on the left:
If you drag the bar to the left then it will disappear. If I drag it partially it will look like this:
So it is possible to remove the red bar with your browser. Some browsers allow you to switch off panes and it will disappear completely.
You can skip the rest if you did get my Christmas wishes on the 17 December
