Unichip

Will a unichip be able to run a turbo on a non turbo engine?
For example if i have an XF efi engine and i bolt on a turbo and bigger injectors etc. will a unichip cope with the changes or will i need to go for a completely new injection setup like motech etc?

Thanks
Dan

The ems stinger is only $990 and it's a stand alone ecu with auxiliary outputs for whatever you want, pluss fitting etc say $1500. Whats the pri$e of a piggy back?? Not much less and the Ford eec will work its way around it in time...

ebxr8, unichip is about $1200-$1300 from most places, installed and tuned.

DansEdgli, yep, unichip would be ideal IMO, they are designed to handle non standard engine setups, but you are best speak to your local unichip dealer

Interesting... I've never heard this theory before...

Would you mind explaining what you mean, mate?



Cheers,

So you are saying a u/chip is better than a stand alone system? lol...
I DON'T think so !!!

For an extra $200 I know whats better!!! "On a modded motor"
Thats just for starters then there's 3d / duel sport,, the skys the limit. But the lower end is good value for money compared to unichip..

Unichip are located in Bayswater so they can assist with fittment or also jsut call them and they can tell you where your local Unichip agent is. I had a unichip on my EF and it was well worth the money compared to other systems on the market.

Um it's 1200 INSTALLED AND TUNED for the Unichip while the cheapest ECU (Stinger I think) is $1100 for the ECU around $900 to install and tune.
Then on top of that you need customer sensors as most ECU's only work with there own sensors and don't like the standard ones.
So it's 1200 for the Unichip (Max, I've seen them fitted and tuned for as low as $900) or $2000+ for an Aftermarket ECU +install.
Plus the unichip can be reprogramed when ever you like for about the same price as a decent tune for an aftermarket system.
I know what I'll be doing when I put my turbo's on.

But on an XF or E series not EF would the unichip control the timing and spark? Doesnt the factory ECU only control air/fuel ratios? Making a piggy back only good for adjusting the same?
