• Why RaceChip outperforms ECU remaps

    •  Plug & Play in
      10 minutes

      Plug & Play in 10 Minutes



      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

      All Power reserves activated



      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

      Fine-Tuning also after Installation



      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

      Two Engine Protection Systems



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

    •  Safe Engine

      Safe Engine Warranty



      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

      Easy Reset to Factory Setting



      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.

    RaceChip: Complex technology. Simple installation..

    Plug into your engine to release its power reserves.

    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 R 495 to your RaceChip Ultimate in the checkout process.

Help differentiating CR/PD

Distinguishing between Common Rail (CR)
and Unit Injector (PD)

Applicable to certain Volkswagen AG model series with 2.0 TDI engines

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology. RaceChip chiptuning is specially customized to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

PerformanceThe following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable:Engine code CREngine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
