Toyota Hilux – Unichip and Powerplug Plug and Play

Did you know that your Toyota Hilux is probably not performing at its very best performance. Brands like Toyota Hilux for the ultimate performance.

The guys at Dastek Power has decades of expertise in designing and building specific Unichip Powerplug systems for vehicles including Toyota Hilux, which improves performance, efficiency and durability.

The Unichip Powerplug is known the world over thanks to the technical expertise of Dastek Power, the Centurion business enterprise that creates

Dastek Power is the creators of the Powerplug and Unichip performance chip and they design specific systems for every kind of vehicle.

There is a custom built Powerplug wiring loom specifically for your Toyota Hilux that links to every electronic signal sent by your vehicle’s ECU. The Unichip is equipped to this Powerplug harness, which means that the performance upgrade chip takes over all the necessary signals without the need to cut into your vehicle’s wiring loom.

Every type of Unichip Powerplug is created specifically for the vehicle which it is fitted to, so that means you do not ruin any of the vehicle electronics and you'll be able to fit and take out the system as necessary, for instance when you service or replace the vehicle.

A Unichip can outperform other chips on the global market and the Powerplug system is created to work exclusively with a Unichip. Just about every performance program code is controlled by this completely programmable performance pc, not simply the usual fuel pressure levels and accelerator response.

With a Unichip system you can reprogram your engine performance in many ways at the same time in a system called 3D mapping. In other words you can improve the power of your Toyota Hilux in a variety of ways, without reducing engine durability or risking extreme fuel usage.

At Dastek Power the team tests every newly developed Powerplug system on a dynamometer to make perfectly sure that the power delivery is repeatable. You can also know that if you fit a Unichip and Powerplug system, your engine performance on your Toyota Hilux is going to be everything you expect, safely.

If you prefer full control over the performance of your vehicle, you cannot find any better way to do it than by using a Unichip system. It offers you full command over the vehicle performance, often from within the cabin, it ensures the cleaner combustion of fuel and it will, in some models, improve vehicle safety with a special vehicle immobilising option.

UNICHIP PROMISE

We don’t make any claims with the Unichip about how much better any car will be after fitting it. We let the results speak for themselves.Because no two cars are identical it is impossible to predict just how far from perfect the vehicle will be before fitting the Unichip. Some cars are closer than others and therefore the results will vary. On some cars you may get better fuel consumption but maybe not much more power. On others the increase in power might be good but the fuel consumption might remain the same.

Some might get a lot of improvement in drivability. In most cases you should be able to improve all of the above. It all depends on how close to perfect the car’s existing map is for that particular vehicle.

We promise the customer that the car will be as light as possible on fuel when he drives calmly and it will make as much power as possible when he puts his foot flat on the accelerator. We also promise him that if within three months he feels that it is not worth having the Unichip we will remove it and refund him the full amount, including installation and mapping fee.
We do not make any other promises. **

Our current success rate is 399 out of 400. For every 400 Unichips we have installed we have removed only one. We know of no other product with this success rate on the market.

In the last four years 80% of all South African production car championships were won by cars using Unichip technology. In 1997 the first class F car to use Unichip technology dominated the field by so far that it was deemed an “unfair advantage” and immediately banned in this rookie class!

Up until we were banned from the Economy Run, more than 85% of all cars that won any class or category were using Unichip technology!

What is Unichip?

Your vehicle is a beautiful example of modern engine technology in action. Your turbo diesel or petrol engine is far more efficient, delivers more power and uses less fuel.

Your car is also fitted with more sensors than ever before and a modern German, Japanese, American or European car literally has kilometres of wiring inside the body that connects all the different sensors and the engine to the central computer, which is called the Engine Control Unit (ECU).

Performance enthusiasts have already figured out that you can remap and reprogram the ECU to make the car perform differently. Since then, they have also figured out that you can fit your own pre-programmed chip to the ECU to make the car perform like you would like it to.

But fitting your own chip has proven dangerous and sometimes stupid. Many of these chips can only control one or two signals from the ECU, so they are set to change the fuel mixture and perhaps the boost pressure, without touching anything else.

With only one or two changes from your new performance chip, you may soon pick up problems. You may find the engine overheating, the fuel consumption shooting through the roof or the timing system going haywire. These problems can cause damage and often a dealer will be able to pick up from the vehicle’s sensors that you have tampered with the ECU.

Enter the Unichip. This is undoubtedly the most advanced performance chip in the world, because it can take over virtually all the vehicle’s controls from the ECU and you can programme it specifically for your engine and your needs.

The Unichip does not replace the ECU, but it is fitted between the ECU and the engine sensors. It receives the signals from the engine control unit, translates every single one and sends it to the engine and other sensors.

As an example the Unichip could increase the fuel pressure, monitoring boost and injector performance and managing ignition – all at the same time. This means you get reliable, safe and repeatable engine power every time you step on the throttle.

But to fit a Unichip, you need professional help from specialists like Dastek Power. Read more about the work and research of Dastek Power here.
