How to install performance chip

How to install performance chip

    • Open the bonnet and then close all doors before you start the assembly so that there is no residual current flowing on the Common-Rail-Sensor.
    • Wait for approximately 5 minutes so there’s no more residual current. Now you can start the assembly.
    • When the LED of the check plug of the cable harness doesn’t light up, please desist from starting the vehicle.

    An additional function of the check plug is to reset the car to its original condition (without tuning) by executing only a few steps. So please remove the Chip with ignition off and substitute it with the check plug.

    Due to the advanced technology it is possible to adjust it individually to your vehicle and your driving style respectively. It is regulated by rotary control switches on the circuit board inside the casing. The corresponding instructions can be found below. Please take care not to install the Chip too close to heat sources. The cable of the Chip is to be led downwards. For maximum motor safety, the maintenance intervals of the vehicle manufacturer have to be observed, the oil types specified by the manufacturer have to be used and especially the oil changes prescribed by the manufacturer have to be carried out regularly while using the Chip.

  • Step 1 – Approach the car with appropriate tools. Open the bonnet and remove the motor cover (if any).

    Step 2 – Look for the Common-Rail-Pipe. There’s a 3/6-pin plug characterized by an oversized nut directly on this pipe.

    Step 3 – Disconnect the 3-pin plug.

    Step 4 – Now, insert the plug of the cable harness into the sensor.

    Step 5 – Now, connect the disconnected plug of your vehicle with the counterpart of supplied cable harness.

    Step 6 – The cable harness is now installed in your vehicle. Check the assembly with the supplied check plug. The LED has to constantly glow when the ignition is switched on.

    Step 7 – Switch the ignition off again and wait until the LED is out. Then you can remove the control plug and install the Chip.

    Step 8 – Assemble the cable harness with the cable ties. An assembly to already existing harnesses will be advantageous.


  • Rotary controls switch 1 (Left)

    Power improvement

    With this rotary control switch you can increase or reduce the power stepwise. Please only adjust the rotary control switch step-by-step. Example: The factory setting of the left rotary control switch is on position “B“. If you want to increase the performance, please go to position “C“. The result is a performance increase of 1.5 % compared with the factory setting. On position “D“ you have increased the performance by additional 1.5%. Each clockwise rotation to the next position increases the performance by 1.5 %.

  • Rotary controls switch 2 (Right)

    Cut-off speed

    The right rotary control switch is responsible for the duration of the performance increase, thus how long the performance increase shall be available for the rpm-range. Normally, you don‘t need to adjust it. However, before changing the adjustment please try the factory setting as it‘s normally the OPTIMAL adjustment for your vehicle. If you are not satisfied, please only increase the left rotary controls switch stepwise.

    We deliver the Chip with a setting appropriate for your vehicle. This setting is the optimal adjustment of your vehicle software to the Chip software and perfectly combines the following points: longevity of your motor, reasonable – but not maximum – performance output as well as fuel saving.
