Advantage #1: Improved Fuel Efficiency
Installing a performance chip on your car will help to improve your vehicle’s fuel efficiency in many instances, particularly if you have a car that’s quite the gas guzzler already. By altering the operations of your car’s internal systems, the chip will essentially trick your car into reacting differently to readouts, and these alterations can result in up to 4-7 miles per gallon in fuel savings. Sure, you may not be able to transform your vehicle into a hybrid or electric car, but those are some significant fuel expenditure savings to consider.
Advantage #2: Enhanced Horsepower Output
Once your car has been outfitted with a performance chip, you can expect to see anywhere from single digit horsepower gains to up to 60 extra horsepower. While paling in comparison to a turbocharger’s results gains, a performance chip is also substantially less expensive (under a hundred bucks for a chip compared to several thousand dollars for a turbo kit). Plus, if you pair a performance chip with a turbocharger, you can expect to see results that are on the higher end of gains, as the enhanced systems regulation provided by the chip is most helpful in maximizing turbocharger aid.
Advantage #3: Easy Installation
Many vehicular upgrades that provide dramatically improved performance and efficiency results are quite difficult to pull off, meaning hours of time invested. For that reason, usually only experienced car upgrading enthusiasts and professional installers work on adding most upgrades to vehicles. With a performance chip, even a novice can complete installation in under a half an hour. With only basic automotive tools, 15-30 minutes to spare, and a knack for following simple directions, anyone can get this ECU chip installed and benefit from its many potential enhancement effects.
