where to get the uni-chip?

Hi all, I've decided to get a uni-chip installed, and was wondering where the best place to take my car would be? I live in canberra so i'd probably have to travel to Sydney. Any ideas?

Im sure someone in Canberra would be a unichip dealer mate, maybe one of the Canberra members can point you in the right direction. Other than that, try calling around the local performance parts workshops.

Look up the aps website to see if one's in Canberra, otherwise Autotech Engineering in Sydney has been getting great results for FF members of late.

Re: where to get the uni-chip?

With the Unichip its the experience of the guy doing the live dyno tuning that you are really paying for. The interceptor box itself and fitting anyone can do (well almost) but the tuning requirs some knowledge and I would say Spiro at Autotech in Granville is buildin up some Ford Unichip tuning experience that means the drive to Sydney would be worth it.

Re: where to get the uni-chip?

The Unichip (and others) will just make the most out of what your car can do. That is, they add power but only up to what your car is currently capable of. So, if you do more mods you'll get better results and be able to tune your car according to what mods you have.

Mine for example did 134kw with exhaust only. With the chip it bumped up to 146kw. Your factory computer can't properly make use of the changes you make to your car so the chip lets you re-tune it so it does.

I'd be looking at least exahust(inc extractors), maybe a better air intake. If you do internal mods eg cam, even better.

However even on a standard car you will see a difference.
