    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.

  • All Power

    RaceChip

    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.

    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

    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 Toyota still has power in reserve.

Tap into its full potential with RaceChip.

Why do different Toyota engines sometimes have such different outputs – despite having the same cubic capacity? Because in today's Toyotas, 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 Toyota will often have more engine power than the next up the Toyota range. At a fraction of the cost.

Toyota develops great vehicles

RaceChip makes it even better

Toyota is currently the world's largest car manufacturer. The Japanese are internationally successful with reliable and economical vehicles, from compact cars to large SUVs and pickups. However, sports performance has not been one of the brand's most prominent qualities. That's an ideal starting point for RaceChip, the German company for chip tuning with international success. You can fully utilise the latent power reserves in your Toyota with RaceChip tuning boxes and enjoy a much sportier drive.


Chip tuning with RaceChip is the most innovative method of engine tuning. We offer electronic performance improvement for almost all Toyota models, from saloons to estates and SUVs to pickups.


Tap into more power for your Toyota through electronics

Toyota says of itself, “Always a better way”. We here at RaceChip supplement this with, “Always a more powerful and dynamic way.” You'll get a Toyota driving experience that will thrill you more than anything you've been accustomed to in your Toyota.


The technology involved is very sophisticated, but the principle behind it is precisely adapted for your needs as a driver. For this latest method of electronic performance improvement a supplementary control unit is installed between the engine controls and your vehicle's sensors. This supplementary control unit is a mini-computer loaded with optimisation software designed and painstakingly fine-tuned to your Toyota engine. It optimises the electronic signals that control the engine. With our premium model, the RaceChip Ultimate, your Toyota can produce up to 25% more HP and 30% more torque.


With chip tuning from RaceChip you can tap into the manufacturer's power reserves built into your Toyota. Your Toyota can definitely do more. More power, more dynamics. And all of this from RaceChip is simple, tested and safe. Toyota itself also uses the principle of power improvement by optimising electronic engine controls when it offers models with different engine performance specifications based on the same engine block. Even with manufacturers, differentiation is increasingly achieved through software and less through hardware.


For example, Toyota offers the Land Cruiser with a 4.5 V8 D-4D diesel with four power levels ranging from 205 HP to 286 HP. This power range is primarily achieved through different engine controls.


Chip tuning from RaceChip follows the same technological principle of performance improvement used by the manufacturer. Plus, RaceChip makes no compromises when it comes to quality and performance. The performance improvement from RaceChip optimises only within the thermal and mechanical power reserves available in your Toyota engine. Performance improvement via supplementary control units also ensures that the integrated engine protection systems in your Toyota remain active at all times. You will definitely be able to always enjoy your better way.


Always experience a better way for yourself with your Toyota: with more power, dynamics and driving fun.

No matter which engine you drive, whether the D-4D or D-CAT, 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder or 8-cylinder: with RaceChip chip tuning you'll be thrilled with your Toyota like never before. Here are just a couple of examples of how you’ll always be better when it comes to your Toyota engine and RaceChip:


With the Land Cruiser, for which Toyota offers several power levels in the 4.5 V8 D-4D, you'll easily surpass the next-highest model with RaceChip diesel chip tuning. Plus, you'll get it at a price that's much lower than paying for more power from the manufacturer, i.e. the price difference between the 4.5 V8 D-4D models from Toyota.


A standard 171 HP drives you forward in the Toyota Hilux 3.0 D-4D. Simply install a RaceChip Pro 2 yourself and you'll be amazed at the 224 HP and 449 Nm. This makes the sluggish pickup a much more powerful beast of burden, allowing you to speed away effortlessly—even with the heaviest of loads. Torque is absolutely fundamental when it comes to this off-road vehicle. And with RaceChip you'll never complain about a lack of it again.


The Land Cruiser 3.0 D-4D offers more than enough space for family and friends on- or off-road. With RaceChip Ultimate it also finally offers more than enough power. From a standard 190 HP and 420 Nm you'll get 247 HP and 510 Nm, enabling the Land Cruiser to drive almost as if it weighed half as much. And you'll never say no to optimised fuel efficiency—especially with these kinds of vehicles. Even the entry-level version of our chip tuning is designed so that your transmission changes to the next-highest gear sooner. You can save a lot of money at the petrol station this way, especially if you drive heavy vehicles.


RaceChip Ultimate proves that you can really get more power with a Toyota 8-cylinder in the Land Cruiser 4.5 V8 D-4D. The standard 235 HP is far from what's possible; with the RaceChip it becomes an irresistible 305 HP and 723 Nm. Finally the V8 has the power befitting the majestic appearance of the Land Cruiser.


RaceChip also offers more for the top end of the Toyota power range. The most powerful Land Cruiser 4.5 V8 D-4D comes with a standard 286 HP and 650 Nm torque on the drive shaft. With RaceChip Ultimate it's suddenly an incredible 373 HP and 759 HP – better buckle up for takeoff and landing.


Even those in the mid-power range can achieve top-of-class qualities with RaceChip. The RAV 4 2.2 D-CAT with standard 177 HP is transformed with the RaceChip Pro 2; no wonder, as it suddenly moves ahead with 230 HP.


The Avensis 2.2 D-CAT blazes new trails when it comes to power with RaceChip. With the entry-level RaceChip One you'll have 222 HP and 465 Nm available that will have you looking in your rear view mirror more frequently.


There's still plenty of room for even more HP in the Toyota Hilix 2.5 D-4D. With RaceChip Pro 2 it draws a big dose of power to transform the standard 144 HP into 188 HP, and you'll experience first-hand the transformation from commercial vehicle to pleasure vehicle.

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.

The latest on Toyota

With RaceChip in the RAV4, nothing is impossible

It’s not without reason that the Toyota RAV4 is one of the most popular 4WDs ever. RaceChip now assists it in mastering that balancing act between driving performance and off-road mobility. In extensive testing, our engineers have customised our chip tuning perfectly to the RAV4's 2.2 D-4D. Coupled with the Pro 2, the performance of the diesel engine has been increased from 150 hp to 180 hp and it now boasts a torque of over 400 Nm (factory: 340 Nm). It's the best driving experience that can be had with the RAV4.
