    Power upgrade through chip technology

    Am thinking of chipping the engine on my 08 CS through the powerchip technology. Have heard it can give up to 10% more power. Would appreciate anyone's thoughts on this. It is worth it ? Any negative impact on the engine going forward ? Effect on the warranty ?

    Would like to hear from anyone who has got it done or has some information on it. Thanks,

    The car is naturally aspirated, so you won't get anywhere close to 10%. You would also lose your warranty, so don't do it. Buy a GTS or a Turbo instead.

    Re: Power upgrade through chip technology

    Engine chipping is a good way to get more power out of diesel engines as they normally are set conservative. I wouldn't chip the Cayenne V8 as it definitely voids your waranty and although I am confident the engine can easily take an extra 35bhp, it would be an expensive repair if something happens. Chipping 'normally' achieves the extra BHP in the higher RPM range, not the range I would assume you use most so I think the chipping would give you limited 'joy'

    just my thoughts

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Turbodiesel engines take well to chipping because they are just that: TURBOdiesels. An N/A engine will never make 10%.
