By far our most popular option for people looking for a quick and easy way to increase engine power, the RaceChip RS comes to you pre-loaded with the correct maps, specific the Hyundai i30 PD. The standard RaceChip has a rotary control on the front of the unit in order for one of the 6 internal maps to be selected to fit the engine's performance and characteristics.
The RaceChip RS increases the torque available at any given engine speed. Therefore, a higher gear can usually be selected, meaning less gear-changing is necessary in general, and fuel is used more efficiently. As a result, fuel consumption can be cut by up to 15%.
Additionally, there is an app control option available for the RaceChip RS, allowing you to use your smartphone to choose between 3 tuning modes from the RaceChip app; Efficiency for saving fuel in urban traffic, Sport for improved mid-range flexibility on open roads, Race for maximum performance. The RaceChip RS can also be deactivated via the app.
Note: you must run your car on 98 RON fuel to use this chip
App control offers:
- 3 distinct performance modes
- Adjustable Warm-up timer
- Individual fine tuning mappings
- Automatic updates
- Advanced service features
- Integration with RaceChip XLR (throttle controller)
|Model||Increased Power||Increased Torque|

|1.6 CRDi (100kw)||+25 kW||+68 Nm|
RaceChip RS for Hyundai i30 PD
Expected a lot more from it for the expected 25% more power it should be doing more for the power to weight ratio. After installation/run in and then setting to max setting (6)

I will send you an email and we can discuss some steps to help you get more from your chip.
My i30 is completely stock and with the addition of the RS race chip, there is a noticeable increase in the power output, albeit the mapping has to be set to 6 to notice anything significant, while the factory default of 4 doesn't produce a huge difference. Of course, it would be unreasonable to expect an incredible increase in power because of the car being stock, yet there is a decent increase. It misses out on the 5 stars just because personally I feel the promoted "up to 25% increase in kW" doesn't live up to the reality of what the chip can produce in terms of how it feels in the car. Despite this, I would still recommend the product to anyone who is looking for some extra fun in their ride, and I do not regret purchasing it. Also thanks to Cherry for their quick delivery interstate.
Excellent addition to car wasn't expecting the nice large torque boost even lower in the rev range which is excellent is a real overtaking beast now lol
