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 to your car. 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)
Item arrived quickly and installed. The instructions included were not the same model as the engine unfortunately but other online instructions seemed to work for this model. Hard to tell what the gains are unless you dyno it, I assume because the engine itself is not that powerful. There is an issue running the app in dark mode as it hides the numbers on my phone. If the app doesn't seem to be working properly turn off dark mode.
