No worries. It definitely works.

Now here's the potential downside.

You cause more premature wear. This is inevitable with any power mod. Expect to change spark plugs and possibly ignition coils sooner. Shouldn't affect the internals though.

The ecu may also stop 'playing nice' with the module. Happened to the guy who bought my M5 after a few months of driving. At this point the RCU had been continuously in the car for more than a year. He started having drivetrain errors that were sorted only after he removed the chip. After that car was trouble free, but he really missed the power.

He's going to try to install it back because there is a way to acclimate the ECU to the new module by a certain pattern of driving so that it doesn't give hiccups. (I wasn't aware of this before). Hopefully it works out well. BMW has fairly sensitive electronics.

Just wanted to give you a more complete picture. But even worst case scenario, your engine internals should be sound. They are confident enough to offer a full engine warranty in Germany - alas it doesn't apply here, but it shows they stand by their product.

The RCU is tune 'adjustable'. Probably it was set at a certain setting which didnt suit the new owners driving style thats why it threw all the drivetrain errors. Have to open the rcu cover to adjust.

The unichip i used on my car kept throwing drivetrain errors and i decided to remove it for good. Good $$$ wasted.. ohwell learning process.

Possibly. My RCU was set at the most aggressive, because that's also my default driving style - I call it the "Jeremy Clarkson baboon special". :D

Of course who will drive a m5 like a puss. This is how to tweak the settings.. by turning the S2 setting. S2-9 i think is the most aggro. S1 keep at "1" coz not in use.

 

But alot of them say same feel after S2-C.. can slowly change it to see. Every 1 up i think changes the gear change rpm up by 500

Curious, if install racechip ultimate or other similar piggybacks that affect engine output power, go for car inspection need to remove? Assuming car is Cat B COE.

Has anyone went through inspection with these piggys on?

don't worry it's ok.

 

inspection checks for roadworthiness and emissions (which you'll have no problem passing as long as you don't de-cat). they don't make the car go through a dynamometer.

Hi, I've just bought a Race Chip S from their online store.

 

I have a problem installing the Race Chip as the instructions manual are on a generic car and I do not know where exactly to hook up the connectors.

 

Any kind souls who can help and share with me where exactly to hook them up. I'm driving a S60 D2.

 

Thanks & Cheers.

Just go to any reputable workshop. They will be able to fix it for you at a small fee.

Check your email again, racechip usually sends out another mail with the instruction manual for your car.

Even the invoice email has a link to the PDF download instruction manual for your vehicle.

Hi  guys,

Any idea if you normally remove the racechip during servicing? Will the dealer make a fuss out of it?
