Chip Tuning is a sure way to increase the performance of your vehicle. Modern cars are equipped with the engine control unit ECU (engine control unit), which affects the amount of fuel injected and ignition control, depending on the operating state of the engine. Automakers are forced to compile these programs according to certain criteria and with significant reservations. In a nutshell - a car that meets the production line, should also work well in extremely hot in extremely cold climates. It is a sufficiently broad series of data and take into account a wide range of other aspects (such as low fuel level, etc.). Consequently, the engine of your vehicle used for approx. 60-70% of its possibilities. This fact, however, can be easily and surely changed by adjusting the data stored in the memory control unit, called Chip.
This was done with early engine computers in the 80s and 90s. Nowadays, the term chip tuning can be misleading, since people will often use it to describe ECU programming that does not involve exchange of the chip. Modern motor control units can be tuned simply by updating their software through a standard interface, such as On Board Diagnostics. This procedure is commonly referred to as adjusting the motor or motor control unit. The engine control units are a relatively recent addition to the automobile, appearing for the first time in the late seventies.
As technology advanced, so did electronic devices that enter cars. The engine control unit in a modern automobile, together with advanced engine technology, allows controlling many aspects of engine operation, such as spark timing and fuel injection. The engine control unit can also control electronic accelerator control (cable drive), compass valve regulation, boost control (in turbocharged engines), anti-lock braking system, automatic transmission, speed regulator (if equipped) Stability control system.
Performance gains are made by adjusting the ignition timing advance. A different time may result in better performance. However, to cope with advanced timing, one must run on high-octane gasoline to avoid pre-ignition detonation or pinging. The design of the manufacturers for a specific time and this can limit the performance accordingly.
The reason for changing the engine control unit map is whether there is engine, intake, or exhaust modifications for the car. These "bolted" modifications alter the way the engine flows, often causing the air-fuel ratio to change. Without reassigning the fuel tables, some of the performance gains from the modifications may not be realized.
A poorly adjusted engine control unit can result in reduced performance, driving ability and can even cause engine damage.
The most common way to "update" the engine control unit is by using plug-in modules as mentioned above or by using a specialized tuner that will use an on-board diagnostic Flash tool. These devices are usually connected to the diagnostic port, although in some cases the reprogramming is done directly on the circuit board. The maps are supplied by tuners.
WHAT IS CHIP TUNING ?
The company chip in a vehicle contains something referred to a search table. The search table contains data that tells the engine how to respond in various circumstances. Taking an example, if you are driving down the highway going 50 miles per hour and you quickly press the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor, the computer will detect this and ask the chip what to do. The chip will refer to your search table and tell the computer how much gas to send to your engine, how and when to change your car in a lower gear (in the case of an automatic), how to adjust the time and quantity Turbo boost to provide, if your car is equipped with a turbo charger. On a factory chip, all these parameters are dictated by the car manufacturer for their own purposes. When a performance chip is introduced, this changes the lookup table and adjusts the parameters to obtain maximum performance with respect to fuel economy, emissions and other yield reduction constraints.

BENEFITS OF CHIP ADJUSTMENT?
In general, any car equipped with an engine management system can be tuned, which includes gasoline and diesel engines. However, chiptuning produces the best results in turbocharged or supercharged engines. Increasing the boost pressure of the turbocharger or supercharger allows for much greater gains in power, when combined with the correct timing of the ignition and the power settings. Motors normally aspirated (non-turbo) will only get a significant improvement in power if the manufacturer also offers the same engine in a state of significant deceleration by the ECU software alone. With a remapped car you can expect:
An engine that responds more avidly to your right foot
A smoother power supply that makes driving in the city much easier with less gear changes.
Improved acceleration for safer overtaking
20-35% extra power
SAVING THE FUEL WITH THE CHIP TUNER?
When we remap a vehicle, especially when fuel economy is the priority we focus on improving low-end torque, in particular, and expanding the power band as much as possible.
This increase in low power torque will mean less input from the accelerator pedal that is required to maintain cruise speeds, when fully loaded or when on a gradient. It also means that the vehicle will be more comfortable in higher gears at slower speeds, as well as requiring less gear changes in general.
If you combine these factors with the adjustment of your driving style to take full advantage of the extra low torque, you will see an improvement in fuel consumption. This is more effective in turbo-diesel engines where the savings could be up to 20%!
