Unichip...

Hey guys..

Ive got an EL XR8 5 speed..
Just wondering if a Unichip is worth getting?
My car is booked in for a Unichip this Tuesday with Spiro at Autotech, also getting my ss induction & bmc air filter installed..
Its already got an excaust and pacemakers..

I plan on doing alot more to the car in the near future, ie. heads, cam, throttle body, etc..

What are your opinions/recommendations?

Cheers..

Re: Unichip...

Yes, it is worth it.You'll be amazed at the improvements and honestly wonder why you didnt do it ages ago.
Be it unichip, chiptorque or XEDE, the improvements a chip will make over a stock ECU is stunning.

Re: Unichip...

Thanks mate!

I needed some reassurance.. I started to doubt the whole thing and maybe even cancel the Unichip install! ..All because of a few bad comments

But will the Unichip support the modifications i will do to the car in the future?
Ie. heads, cam, throttle body, etc, etc..?

Cheers.

Spiro has done mine(unichip that is) and Bluedriver's and several other forum member's cars. In fact I'm hoping to be back very soon to get my chip remapped after some more mods coming soon.

Definitely a worthwhile purchase. Once it's done you'll definitely be back on here telling us all about it lol.

Re: Unichip...

The unichip will not only support further mods, it will bring out the best in them. You will need a retune each time but its worth it.

Dont cancel it, look forward to it because your going to be stunned.

Re: Unichip...

I hate to put a spanner in the works, but personally I would cancel it. Not for the reasons you think though.

They most certainly work, and work well as most here have pointed out, however if as you say you are going to do future mods, you'd be better off getting most (if not all) proposed mods done and out of the way before you have a chip fitted.

This will save you having to re-map it each time and costing further money.

That's how I would do it anyhow.

Rick.
