biggrin UNICHIP FOR EB 5ltr?

Does any body know how well the Unichips go in Eb falcon to suit 5ltr?
Would anyone recommend another brand than Unichip?
Approx. estimate of rwkw would be appreciated.

What mods have you got? Don't expect to gain on a std engine.

mods

Yes the motor is currently stock but I do have a 2 1/2" exhaust and a K&N panel filter. I do plan to put pacemaker extractors on later but if you say that there wont be any performance gains on the stock motor I may have to re-evaluate what I do.
I only want better economy and drivabilty with improvement of the exhaust at a later date. (If that made sense)
I hear the chip will make a noticable improvement whatever the cars current form.
The car has only done 160,000 and running in excellent condition but I want more from it in regards to 'bolt on' parts. i.e. Not having to touch intake manifolds or cam etc etc.

I must add here, if your going a Unichip try some other mods 1st, I had a unichip installed on my 92 EB Fairmont Ghia ages back, prob ended up with an extra 17kws, but it took a decent Dyno Tune to acheive this!

Red face turbo tune

The guys at turbo tune at edwardstown in adelaide were including a full dyno tune to acheive the maximum safe output from my car setup. They said they needed approx. 4-6 hours to fully program and test the chip according to what the car needs.
They pretty much said that no matter what the outcome, the car will be improved somewhat.
But yes they did need the car to be dynoed to get max. results!

Not cheap though, thats why I'm asking whether or not its worth while!

Save your money, just get a dyno tune and extractors. A unichip will do nothing on a stock to mild engine. When you get to the point your EEC cannot cope with the changes, then get a unichip or better a TwEECer or EEC tuner.

Couldn't agree more, many engines can have moderate changes before the standard ECU can't cope.
Money is much better spent on headers/exhaust, cam, porting.
