Why RaceChip outperforms ECU remaps

    Remapping

    Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. In contrast, the process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU.

    Remapping

    RaceChip as well as remapping use software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). If durability is relevant, the results are usually the same, because they are only limited by the available power reserves.

    Remapping

    If you want, you can further adjust the individual software to your needs after installation e.g. via the RaceChip Smartphone App. Remaps are set in stone and not adjustable.

    Safe Engine Warranty

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered. Remapping leads to a loss of the manufacturer’s warranty.

  • Easy Reset to
    Factory Setting

    Easy Reset to Factory Setting

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    In contrast to remapping, a RaceChip can be removed in a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Plug & Play in 10 Minutes

RaceChip

Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. RaceChip works right out of the box.

Remapping

The process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU, if done wrong.

All Power reserves activated

RaceChip

Uses software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). RaceChip utilises power reserves smart and efficiently and can’t be outperformed by remapping in most dimensions.

Remapping

Also limited by the power reserves, if durability is relevant. Power upgrades by 40% are castles in the air without exchanging components or harming your car in the long run.

Fine-Tuning also after Installation

RaceChip

A RaceChip is programmed specifically for your engine. On top, you can fine-tune the settings after installation, if required (e.g. your specific engine variants slightly).

Remapping

Remaps may (but not have to) take standard factory model variations into account. Though, after installation they are set in stone and can’t be adjusted to your individual needs later on.

Two Engine Protection Systems

RaceChip

Manufacturers protection mechanisms remain functional, plus additional RaceChip Engine Protection System. This ensures maximum safety and longevity of your car.

Remapping

Manufacturers protection mechanisms can get overwritten. This e.g. leads to your engine not detecting overheating or too much pressure anymore. I.e. wear and tear are increased above an acceptable level.

Safe Engine Warranty

RaceChip

RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years, which covers all relevant engine components. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered.

Remapping

Remapping is detected during a normal service, which definitely leads to a loss of the manufacturers’ engine warranty. Most remappers do not offer a warranty on your engine.

Easy Reset to Factory Setting

RaceChip

Easy removal within a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Remapping

Removal is difficult and will remain detectable (manufacturers’ ECU counts each flash). Moreover, a remap may be overwritten during the service of your car.

Your Kia still has power in reserve.

Tap into its full potential with RaceChip.

Why do different Kia engines sometimes have such different outputs – despite having the same cubic capacity? Because in today's Kias, the main difference between the engines is the software – not the hardware. Our engine tuning products use the same principle.

With RaceChip engine tuning parts, your Kia will often have more engine power than the next up the Kia range. At a fraction of the cost.

Help differentiating CR/PD

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology.

RaceChip chip tuning is specially customised to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

Performance The following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable: Engine code CR Engine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
CAGB, CBAA, CFFA AZV, BMA, BNA, BRF
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)
CBAB, CBDB, CFFB,
CFHC, CJAA, CLCB,
CLJA
BKD, BKP, BMM, BMP

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
