Worse than chip tuning: how a service kills an engine by increasing the power class

Now a large number of services that service premium cars have begun to offer a service to increase engine power. And this is not chip tuning, but a softer intervention in the car. The AvtoVzglyad portal tells what to be afraid of with such a procedure.

Usually all this work is called chip tuning. However, it isn’t. Installing a chip with a new “firmware” implies an abnormal intervention in the engine control unit (ECU) and, accordingly, the replacement of the old chip. When “raising the power class” none of this is necessary. Work goes only with the “native” driver.

Where does this method come from? The fact is that European manufacturers have been offering the same engines for years, but with different degrees of forcing. This is only achieved by calibrating the ECU. “Iron” is not touched. Here, speed enthusiasts came up with the idea of ​​​​using programs designed for “charged” units. For example, the Mercedes-Benz A180 has 122 hp in stock. Of. Changing the “software” helps to reach 156 powers. The increase is a solid 34 liters. Of. And the C200 sedan is “accelerated” from 184 horsepower. Of. up to 245 litres. Of.

Do not think that everything is so simple. There were many nuances. Therefore, the service begins with computer diagnosis (even if the car has no mileage at all). After making an analysis of the software already installed. And based on all the data received, they offer a new “software”. In general, the amount of data is huge and you have to be able to work with it. It also requires special equipment. Not what you need for chip tuning.

Further. Of course, marketers and engineers working in Germany are well aware of this possibility. Therefore, they try to intervene in every possible way, invent cunning “tricks” and introduce multi-level access to the “brain” of the car. As a result, it can turn to big trouble to the first Russian master to come across. Even a new car will begin to produce many errors, fuel consumption will increase. And in the worst case there will be an explosion. She will take the unit to a major overhaul. In addition, there may be problems with the automatic transmission, since the settings are “tightened” for certain characteristics of the internal combustion engine.

The problem is that it is difficult to restore the normal settings. And it is not clear what to do with such a “spoiled” car. There is only one way out – to look for specialists in “software”, which are few even in Moscow. And to pay fixed money for the return of the “German” to a normal “life”. So if you really want to add “horses”, choose “chip”, but only in services rendered.
