Chip Tuning

Chip Tuning refers to modification for a reprogrammable read-only memory chip in a vehicle's electronic control unit (ECU) to achieve optimal performance power enhancement, cleaner emissions or for fuel-efficiency.

  • One method for modification is by adding an external device, commonly referred to as a  tuning box, which works by linking to existing engine sensors and controls sent to the ECU (Engine Control Unit)
  • The quantity of sensors that are intercepted will depend and vary on the tuning box manufacturer
