- It all depends. Some tCs react well to them, and others do as stated above...lose power. The downside is that the maps stored on the unichip are static, so they won't adjust to any new environment settings. You'll have to run higher octane that it's tuned for when running the chip as well, so expect to pay a bit more at the pump than you do now. You'll also be running a tune that isn't fully tuned to your settings (it is tuned for I/E and you have I/H/E). It's not that it's going to kill your car to do it, but the unichip can be limited in our application unless you're supercharged. S/C tCs seem to react the best to this tuner.
Thank you Web for clearing up this room. What I said wasn't a laughing matter, but whatever. Some tC's it works on and others it doesn't. If your S/C, then yes buy it. I did my research just like everyone else and made phone calls as well. I'm not going to spend $500-$600 just to gain 10-15HP, I'd rather spend the money on a turbo kit. As I said b4, its comes down to opinion/preference.
If anyone feels that what comes out of my mouth is a joke, then I challenge you to go and talk on Club-tC.com and ask to speak to NavyLife59 and all the other moderators/member on that site, they will tell you what they feel about the UniChip and confirm what I said.
