Totally sealed electronics, watertight, dustproof, developed and calibrated for the Australian Outback’s harshest conditions.
Diesel engines function in a completely opposite manner to Gasoline engines.
That is to say, RICHER fuel/air ratios, (more fuel) results in a diesel engine running HOTTER and producing MORE power.
LEANER (more air) means a diesel engine running COOLER; however producing LESS power.
As a consequence of the above, contrary to assertions from many CHIP suppliers, it is fundamentally impossible to simultaneously offer substantially increased power from a diesel engine, directly coupled with improved fuel consumption, purely by installation of a CHIP.
However, fuel consumption CAN be improved by simultaneously installing other components such as improved flow air entry and exhaust systems, thus increasing engine efficiency.
A well designed, manufactured and correctly CALIBRATED ECU ( Engine Control Unit, not merely a CHIP), CAN offer substantial increases in power. Typically 25% by installation of the ECU alone and upwards of 50 to 60% over standard, when coupled with appropriately matched additional components. In some cases, these additional components may also result in improved fuel consumption under light load, or cruise conditions.
