Chip tuning, as it is commonly known, is the art of modifying the factory engine management system’s (also known as the ECU) software. To take advantage of an ECU upgrade, the vehicle must be equipped with an engine management system.
Chip tuning means that the standard software is modified, especially the parameters relating to power, torque and fuel economy. In order to increase the power output of an engine, it is necessary to change the timing (and amount of) fuelling, ignition timing and turbo boost on turbo-charged engines. Proper adjustment of these parameters ensures the efficient combustion relied upon for power and economy.
