Dou you ask yourself what exactly happens during chiptuning? And what the difference between chiptuning and software tuning is? We have got the answers. Chiptuning means that the software in the engine control unit is optimised. This is why chiptuning is also often referred to as software tuning and means the same. How does it work? To improve the performance of your agricultural vehicle, several parameters such as the amount of fuel, injection time and boost pressure are adjusted to each other.
Good for the Environment, Good for your Purse
Reliable and economical agricultural machines are an important part of every farmer’s work. No matter if you have a tractor, a combine harvester or a forestry machine – allcartuning develops technologies for a more efficient use of raw materials and energy. This does not only help you save costs but it also protects nature. By using our ECO technologies you can achieve lower fuel consumption for your agricultural machine, you save costs for raw materials and at the same time receive a better performance.
Results of Chiptuning
By chiptuning your tractor you can achieve torque increase by up to 30%, an increase of horsepower by up to 20% and a reduction of fuel consumption by up to 5–15%. Due to chiptuning or software tuning, a reduction of fuel consumption is achieved very often while the driving style stays the same. How does that work? By shifting the torque. This enables the driver to drive at a lower engine speed and reduces fuel consumption. After chiptuning, your vehicle has the same power at a lower torque as compared to before with a higher torque.
Results of Chiptuning at a Glance
- performance improvement between 5% and 20%
- torque increase by 5% and 30%
- reduction of fuel consumption after chiptuning
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do the vehicle manufacturers not carry out the chiptuning themselves?
The manufacturer develops a vehicle for the international market. In doing so, they have to consider various framework conditions such as national emission standards, regional differences in temperature, different types of fuel or specific categories of insurances in different countries. This means that an ex-works vehicle needs to be equipped for a wide range of different influencing factors. The adjustment of the above-mentioned parameters to one single target market can therefore be carried out only by chiptuning.
Does Chiptuning Shorten Engine Life?
This depends on the degree of the chiptuning modifications. If no limit values are exceeded during the software tuning and you have a “normal” style of driving, no increased wear is to be expected. If the requested modifications deviate from normal standards and/or your driving style does not comply to “normal” standards, the same signs of wear as the engine would be exposed to without chiptuning are to be expected.
