Engine Chip Tuning 

Engine chip tuning is a process in which the software running the engine of a vehicle is redone to enable increased performance out of the engine. However, because this process is fairly invasive and significantly changes the operation of your vehicle, it carries a number of advantages and disadvantages.

Are there any downsides to getting your car 'chipped'?

Some people are concerned that engine remapping could cause problems with their car. But it shouldn’t affect reliability if you use a reputable company.

Remapping does put extra strain on an engine, but not a dangerous amount if it’s done properly. Remapping companies will carefully monitor the temperatures and pressures that remaps put the engine through when developing their products. Most cars’ engines are built to be capable of offering more performance than they actually deliver, so this added power shouldn’t cause any undue strain.

It always pays to listen to the professionals when considering which remap to go for because it is possible for upgrades in power and torque to have negative effects on the driving experience as well as positive ones. Power delivery could become less smooth and progressive or fuel economy could be reduced, for example.

The other major consideration is insurance. You must tell your insurer about any modifications you make to your car and there’s a good chance that remapping the engine will increase your insurance premiums, especially if the remap boosts performance.

Things to Consider Before Engine Chip Tuning

Because it removes the limits that the manufacturer has placed on the engine, tuning your engine software can result in a greater amount of stress on the engine. But all this is in consideration is dependent on how you drive and maintain your vehicle , as a result engine tuning and remapping can be as safe as manufactures limits.

Directly related to the above point, having your engine chip tuned can cause problems for any warranties you may hold on your vehicle or engine. This is because the limits that the manufacturer has placed on the engine are designed to ensure a safe driving experience that won't damage the engine.
