WHAT IS IT?
DPChip is an interactive computer which exploits the full potential of modern EFI diesel engines. Individual programming and re-mapping of the engine management system enables this simple-to-fit device to increase power by up to 25% and torque by up to 35%. It alters fuel, timing and air characteristics to create smooth power gains.
Over 90% of DP Chips sold are simple Plug & Play using OEM plugs to connect safely to your vehicle’s existing wiring. These systems generally take under 20 minutes to install. Some older model Diesel vehicles may require a wire-in harness to be installed. These systems may take an hour to install. Full instructions are provided, or you can watch their demonstration video at http://www.dpchip.com/home/?p=5042.
ON OUR VEHICLE
We felt an immediate difference in our 2012 VW Amarok 2.0L turbo diesel, as per the following:
|MAKE||MODEL||ENGINE||KW BEFORE||KW AFTER||NM BEFORE||NM AFTER|
|Volkswagen||Amarok 2.0 TDI Bi-Turbo||2.0L 4cyl||132||155||420||495|
IS IT SAFE?
After 20,000km – and most of that towing a large caravan – we certainly think so! Existing engine Safety Modes are always left intact, and DP Chip is the only tuning Module to offer a “Factory Backed Engine and Driveline Warranty” on vehicles still covered by their own Factory Warranty.
WOULD WE RECOMMEND IT?
Definitely. If you’re hesitating just on price, you will forget about that completely as soon as the Chip is fitted and you feel the difference in the performance of your vehicle. The installation is straightforward, and regardless of what care we have in the future, we will never be without a DP Chip.
