You know that there is more power underneath your engine cover than you are currently getting, but is it safe and reliable?
At Dastek Power we design, manufacture and test the Power Plug to be unique to every type of vehicle. We also test and programme the accompanying Unichip for your specific vehicle and specific engine and our network of specialised dealers will then fit, test and tweak the Unichip and Power Plug to be absolutely perfect for your engine and your needs.
By fitting a Power Plug you utilise the full power of Unichip, the world’s most advanced performance chip. To learn more about why Unichip is superior to virtually all other performance upgrade chips, click here.
Many different maps available on one Unichip
Did you know that you can programme your Unichip, with a Power Plug, to offer more than one performance map? Thanks to the constant testing of the performance engineers at Dastek Power, most of the Unichip Power Plug systems currently fitted through our network of approved dealers have four or five programmes available.
To access the wide range of performance maps, you simply fit an in-car selector called a Power Switch and you can change your car’s engine performance and entire character with the press of a button.
Here are some of the maps that we have created:
Anti-theft – available on most turbo diesel pick-up and SUVs
Select and lock the vehicle in this setting when you park somewhere and are worried about the safety of the vehicle. In this mode the engine is rendered completely powerless and it will not deliver any power to the wheels. Your engine will merely turn, but nothing will happen.
You may love the extra power that a performance chip gives you, but you will start to hate it if you are stuck in traffic where the extra power merely frustrates you and where your pick-up, SUV or passenger vehicle simply starts using more fuel.
By selecting the fuel consumption setting, your engine will still deliver more power than in standard mode, but it will also use much less fuel. The improvement will be immediately evident in the longer distances between tanks.
More torque for towing and driving in 4×4
Getting the most power from your engine does not always help when you are driving in a technical off road section where good throttle response is more important than pure engine power.
For these conditions, you can select an off road setting that gives you more low-down power at low engine speeds. This is also an ideal setting if you are towing a large caravan or boat, or towing someone who does not have the power of a Unichip out of the mud or water.
Our final, and most popular, setting unleashes the full power of the Unichip. In this setting the Unichip comes alive and optimises virtually every setting of your car to deliver the most power available.
In this setting, many seemingly standard pick-ups and SUVs have seen their power and torque jump by over 20% and in some cases over 30%. That may sound like a small number, but in a Land Cruiser 200 VX V8 Turbo Diesel, this setting unleashes nearly 1 000 Nm of torque. Just imagine the look on the hot hatch driver’s face when you leave him in your dust in your “slow” SUV!
