Let’s start with chip and flash tuning as these two have nearly identical execution. Both methods rely on a computer to program a tune based on the specific needs of your car.
This tuning software will generally modify ignition timing and modify the engine’s fueling, as well as other important (read: power un-tapping) factors. It will be uploaded to your ECU which overwrites the OEM tune file.
A flash tune can be uploaded straight to your car while a chip needs to be physically fitted to the engine’s ECU. After you are done tuning your car with either method, you will instantly experience the boost in power the moment you drive your car – mainly because the car now responds more instantly to the prodding of our leaded right foot.
More like studying to gain more knowledge, cars have gone a long way when it comes to tuning their brains – called Electronic Control Unit.
Older cars relied on computer chips. Modern cars, however, can be flashed on a software level. The car’s diagnostic port is linked to a laptop which then uploads the new software to the car. As automobiles evolve and become more complex, ECU tuning became more advanced as a consequence.
But ECU tuning isn’t just grabbing your laptop, plugging into the OBD port, and input that you would like a million horsepower. Nope, it isn’t a one and done thing.
