Why RaceChip outperforms ECU remaps
Please click on the icons for more information below:
Plug & Play in 10 Minutes
Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. RaceChip works right out of the box.
All Power reserves activated
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.
Fine-Tuning also after Installation
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).
Two Engine Protection Systems
Manufacturers protection mechanisms remain functional, plus additional RaceChip Engine Protection System. This ensures maximum safety and longevity of your car.
Safe Engine Warranty
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.
Easy Reset to Factory Setting
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.
Optimization isnt just plain old optimization
Box and OBD tuning in comparison
In general two approaches to electronic performanve tuning can be distinguished.(1)Performance tuning by directly accessing and reprogramming the engine control unit (ECU), also called on-board diagnostics(OBD) tuning and (2) Optimization with auxiliary control devices also refered to as performance tuning, piggybacking and power boxes.
Direct ECU tuning and remapping
Performance improvements are achieved by optimizing the electronic signals. This is done via the OBD2 port or by breaking into the ECU and adjusting and/or overwriting the manufacturer’s software itself, usually refered to as remapping or ECU flashing. This remapping technology can be used in all engines with electronic engine controls.
Optimization with auxilary control device
Performance improvements are achieved by optimizing the engine’s electronic control signals. The auxiliary control device is placed between the engine controls and sensors, which enables performance upgrades of up to 30% using this tuning software. This engine tuning technology can be used in diesel and turbo charged petrol engines.
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.
Better fuel economy
Save money and natural resources. - An engine's fuel consumption depends primarily on two factors:
LOWER AVERAGE RPM = LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION
Put simply, an engine's fuel consumption depends primarily on two factors:
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.
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 app control for just 50 EUR to any compatible RaceChip in the checkout process.

RaceChip: Complex technology. Simple installation
Plug in to 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.
