Does crescent motorsport do a unichip? More of an interceptor than a piggy back....

But it seems like Joe looks after the sydney fordmodders....

Joe doesnt do unichips, Granville Autotech do, and i highly recommend them for a unichip install. These things are not cheap, and every time you mod something on the engine, be prepared to spend another 350-500 for a retune, so do all the mads you want done first then fit the unichip. You have been warned.

Call and ask Spiro at Autotech and tell him your off the forums so you will get the right price.

Chiptorque is half the price but you have to fit it yourself and its with an off the shelf program. You can get it custom tuned as well though if you wanted to.

I still went with the Unichip.

hi guys



Just a thought OBS35N ( IT'S A 8TH OF THE COST OF UNICHIP ) - AND YOU OWN YOUR HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE NO CATCHS TO PURCHASE

you can use megasquirt as a stand alone or piggyback ECU realtime programmable ECU by yourself rather than running back to the unichip agents who have the software to do the so called programming ( just really modifying the incoming signals from your cars sensors to fool your cars ECU ) and charge like WOUNDED bulls , ALSO WITH UNICHIP YOU ARE STUCK IN A REV RANGE THAT UNICHIP CAN NOT MODIFY ie if your cars ecu is rev limited at 5500 RPM and your engine makes more power at a higher rpm you can not alter it adds more cost again . Every time you do a modification to your vehicle you have to see the unichip agents who on stricky contract policy by unichip melbourne APS ( air pumps australia ) can not give or sell you the software and pissy little black box that jions there unichip to a laptop now i know why APS owner drives a latest model porsche PMSFL. When you buy haltech, 3D wolf , microctech, altronics and motec the top of the line system you recieve the software wifth ECU you have purchased wander what happen to a equal playing field WOT A JOKE PMSFL..




#########################################

ONE SHOULD HAVE A CHIOCE WHO YOU HAVE TUNE YOU CAR WHY BE TIED UP TO A MONOPOLY.

#########################################




YOU ARE STILL BETTER OF BUYING A PROPER ECU LIKE THE ONES I HAVE MENTIONED DEPENDING ON YOU BUDGET AND USE IT AS A PIGGYBACK ECU GET BETTER RESULTS AND YOU ARE NOT TIED UP TO THE FRANCHISE OF UNICHIP AGENTS .


BUT U CAN ALSO EXPLORE THE OTHER OPTION WHICH I AM DOING RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK :D :wink: 8-) HAVE FUN
