If you are looking for an XLR for other Kia models, please contact us. We can order them for you.
The RaceChip XLR is installed between the throttle pedal sensor and the engine control unit. Depending on the XLR’s tuning stage, it either amplifies or reduces the signals sent by the throttle pedal sensor in accordance with characteristics defined by our engineers. The effect is that you can choose how your car reacts to your throttle inputs.
2 Sport (S, S+) and 2 Race stages (R, R+) sharpen throttle response, speeding up the engine’s reaction times, making it as reactive as even a sportscar’s. 2 Eco stages (E, E+) slow down the engine’s reaction to movements of the throttle. In heavy city traffic and on long journeys, this can help you reduce fuel consumption. You can select N if don’t want or need to use XLR, and your car is back to stock tune.
RaceChip XLR is available for any car equipped with an electronic throttle, regardless of whether the engine is naturally aspirated, turbocharged, supercharged, electric or hybrid.

This was very easy to install and combined with the Race Chip RS that I have fitted i was expecting a huge difference in throttle response. Unfortunately I haven’t noticed a major difference. I have it set to S+ and I think there is some difference but I feel it’s minor. I’m going to change it to R or R+ and see if there is a difference. I love the fact you don’t have to leave the controller connected to the brain box. Just select the setting you want, disconnect the controller and the brain box will remember your selection. It also saves you having to mount the controller somewhere. Ultimately it’s up to you as to whether you buy this or not, all I can say is that there is a difference but not as much as I expected or hoped for.
