Being a novice, you might not be aware of the maintenance tips for your vehicle. Performance upgrades, maintenance and proper tuning of a supercar will ensure that your vehicle operates at peak capacity for many years to come. The performance of your vehicle matters especially when it comes to fuel efficiency, handling and safety, in addition to keeping you safe along with the other drivers and pedestrians safe.
If you want to maintain your car performance at its peak, it is your responsibility to make sure it gets the proper tuning as and when needed. When it comes to getting more out of your engine, choose out of these two options i.e. chip tuning and performance tuning because each of them owns their benefits and costs.
But before you head towards a garage to get your Range Rover’s performance tuning, let us know about the key difference between performance and chip tuning.
What is performance tuning?
Performance tuning mostly concentrates on the physical parts of the engine. The majority of these hardware modifications and improvements concentrate on the powertrain like cylinders, exhaust, transmission or more. This type of tuning always focuses on getting more power out of the engine. The performance tuning could be carried out in the garages, but make sure you know very well what the workmen are actually doing. The actions like boring out the pistons, installing a custom exhaust system etc. are very complicated procedures and are to be done to very narrow margins. Being an owner of a classy supercar you should focus on getting the performance tuning by a professional expert.
What is chip tuning?
Chip tuning was originally meant for the chips in the Engine Control Unit (ECU) that were removed and replaced with the chips that had different software. The introduction of the diagnostic ports to car computer systems opened the door for engine remapping or rewriting the software without even replacing the chip. When a lot of people refer to chip tuning today, they actually mean remapping. Thus, to get the best possible results, get your range rover chip tuning done by a professional. After installing a high-quality chip, the professionals will put your car on the rolling road to check if the software is working accordingly.
Combination of the tunings
To get the most performance possible out of your car’s engine, you probably have to combine both performance tuning and chip tuning. Out of which performance tuning will allow you to switch out parts and tweak engine’s parameters. Once you got all the physical parts fine-tuned, chip-tuning will then allow you to make sure that the software is lined up to get the best possible response out of your upgraded engine.
