What is the U-Connect - Plug n Play?
The U-Connect - Uni Q Chip simply plugs into the vehicles standard ECU to unleash your vehicles full potential.
The U-Connect - Uni Q Chip is a highly developed, re-programmable tuning piggyback microcomputer which works in conjunction with the Engine Management System ( EMS) which is fitted to most of the new vehicles available on our market today.
The ability of the U-Connect to "Plug 'n play" has become one of the catchphrases of modern day tuning, and has made it easier than ever before to optimise the performance of modern cars without affecting any of the electronic safety parameters built into the engine's electronic control unit (ECU) by manufacturers.
The U-Connect - Uni Q Chip is not to be confused with the mostly, overseas sourced and local condition non-specific, re-flash method of tuning that most performance enthusiasts seem familiar with in which the OEM ECU code is simply generically re-written with a hand held programmer via the vehicle's OBD port.
With the U-Connect, all the changes occur within this unit and are electrically communicated to your vehicle's engine control system.
No changes are made within the OEM computer, and thus all the engine safety parameters as set by the manufacturer remain in place.
Why Fit the U-Connect?
The U-Connect interacts with an engine's ECU to optimize the air / fuel mixture, timing, boost and injector pressures under various loads and driving conditions. This can be done safely as the standard ECU's have been developed to suit world markets, with wide set tolerances.
Because it has a Unichip piggyback computer (Unichip chips) at its heart, the benefits of the U-Connect can be further enhanced on a dyna by fine-tuning the installation for the particular car to which it is fitted.
The U-Connect can even be fitted with its own exhaust gas and coolant temperature sensors that continually monitor the set values and if necessary alter them to safeguard the engine.
