With baseline figures and data collected, Unitronic interprets the data and adjusts the engine control unit parameters for optimal performance. Research and development of Unitronic’s Performance Software continue with further dyno and track testing, while closely monitoring running conditions through live high-speed data logging tools, and further optimizations are made to ensure maximum performance is achieved while maintaining complete OEM-like drivability; increasing throttle response, and improving overall fuel efficiency.

Unitronic spent significant additional time in R&D and Testing on its Performance Software for this engine platform to ensure its official Performance Software offerings provide reliable operation for its Clients. With hundreds of dyno runs and countless hours spent with a multitude of empirical data collected, analyzed, and real-world testing in the field, Unitronic Performance Software is optimized for maximum performance while staying within the constraints of the OEM hardware to ensure trouble-free reliability.

Unitronic’s Stage 1 Performance Software is engineered for otherwise complete stock vehicle, requiring no supporting hardware modifications, producing 175 HP/ 225 lb-ft.

Unitronic’s Performance Software is programmable directly through the OBD-2 port and is UniConnect+ compatible. Within minutes you’ll be enjoying a total night-and-day driving experience.

UniConnect+ is Unitronic’s End-User Programming and Diagnostic Interface, which gives its Clients the freedom to flash their Engine Control Unit (ECU) from the comfort of their home or garage. It is no longer necessary to schedule an appointment at an Authorized Unitronic Dealer to have your performance software installed, removed, upgraded or reflashed. UniConnect+ empowers its Unitronic Performance Software Clients with the freedom to tune their vehicle at their will.

FEATURES

Engineered with Strict Industry Standards

With over 10 years of experience with Bosch and Siemens engine management systems and calibrations, Unitronic is able to utilize its expertise, industry leading tools, and equipment to ensure an optimal calibration; delivering maximum performance, while maintaining complete OEM-like reliability and drivability.

Extensively Tested Under Various Driving Conditions

Development begins using its in-house Maha Chassis dyno housed in an environmentally controlled cell; closely monitoring a plethora of operational data, utilizing industry leading calibration tools and resources. Beta calibrations are then tested in race and street scenarios, using multiple cars throughout the world under various driving conditions. This engine calibration strategy ensures Unitronic Performance Software delivers maximum performance, OEM-like drivability and reliability anywhere in the world. Unitronic Performance Software is only released to its Clients once development is thoroughly completed in accordance to Unitronic’s strict standards.

Factory Safety Limiters Retained

OEM “fail safes” are retained within the ECU calibration. Close monitoring of all operation parameters ensures that engine operation stays within factory components limits, resulting in an OEM-like drivability and reliability.

Optimized Responsiveness and Drivability

Professionally calibrated to improve engine response and reduce drive-by-wire lag. Optimized torque curve for more low end torque and faster turbo spool.

Optimized Smoothness and Driving Comfort

Due to the large flat torque curve, the calibration offers a smooth operation under normal and hard acceleration. This results in linear acceleration with constant torque without low end torque peak that will cause loss of traction and uncontrollable power surge, at the expense of high engine speed power.

Optimized Maximum Output

Unitronic development team delivers the maximum power output while staying within the operational limits of the factory components used. Specifically, this results in the highest engine performance without sacrificing the reliability of the engine, turbocharger, or other engine components.

Power Delivery Perfectly Optimized Throughout the Power Band

Aligned with the OEM strategy, the calibration is designed to offer a large flat torque plateau to provide a smooth and linear power band. Maximum torque output is achieved sooner and maintained longer which creates a broader torque plateau and greater area under the curve. This results in an improved acceleration and optimal engine operation.

Improved Fuel Efficiency

Optimized timing and injection under cruising condition for an improved fuel efficiency.

Ignition Timing Precisely Calibrated for Higher Octane Fuel

Engine calibration optimized to take advantage of higher fuel quality to extract maximum energy from the combustion. Therefore, when using a higher octane fuel, more power and better fuel efficiency will be achieved.

Speed Governor Removed

Vehicle speed limiter within ECU is removed. (If automatic, subject to transmission rotational speed limit)
