The pre-programmed U-Connect Power Plug / Uni Q chip / Unichip simply plugs into your vehicles standard ECU!

Why Fit the U-Connect?

The U-Connect interacts with an engine's ECU to optimize the air / fuel mixture, timing, boost and injector pressures under various loads and driving conditions. This can be done safely as the standard ECU's have been developed to suit world markets, with wside set tolerances. Because it has a Unichip piggyback computer (Unichip chips) at its heart, the benefits of the U-Connect can be further enhanced on a dyna by fine-tuning the installation for the particular car to which it is fitted.

The U-Connect can even be fitted with its own exhaust gas and coolant temperature sensors that continually monitor the set values and if necessary alter them to safeguard the engine.

What is the U-Connect - Plug n Play?

The U-Connect - Uni Q Chip simply plugs into the vehicles standard ECU to unleash your vehicles full potential.
The U-Connect - Uni Q Chip is a highly developed, re-programmable tuning piggyback microcomputer which works in conjunction with the Engine Management System ( EMS) which is fitted to most of the new vehicles available on our market today.

The ability of the U-Connect to "Plug 'n play" has become one of the catchphrases of modern day tuning, and has made it easier than ever before to optimise the performance of modern cars without affecting any of the electronic safety parameters built into the engine's electronic control unit (ECU) by manufacturers. The U-Connect - Uni Q Chip is not to be confused with the mostly, overseas sourced and local condition non-specific, re-flash method of tuning that most performance enthusiasts seem familiar with in which the OEM ECU code is simply generically re-written with a hand held programmer via the vehicle's OBD port.

With the U-Connect, all the changes occur within this unit and are electrically communicated to your vehicle's engine control system. No changes are made within the OEM computer, and thus all the engine safety parameters as set by the manufacturer remain in place.

 
How does the U-Connect Power Plug Work?

The Dastek U-Connect Power Plug / Uni Q Chip have turned the aftermarket tune up into an exact science, making it possible to simultaneously achieve what was always considered to be desparate goals: more power and better economy.

Fitting of the U-Connect Power Plug / Uni Q Chip requires no cutting and rejoining of wires, and no dynamometer tune up as with most performance chips – it is literally a situation of plugging it into the harness with a pair of male / female connecters so that play can get underway immediately.

Unlike the more traditional performance chips (uploading / downloading and ‘burning’ of new settings for an ECU), with Dastek U-Connect Power Plugs, there is no tampering with the original safety parameters (including cold start and knock sensors, water and air temperature sensors, and oxygen sensors) or the inadvertent altering of these as sometimes occurs due to operator error.

Instead, the U-Connect Power Plug / Uni Q Chip simply intercepts the information from and to the standard engine ECU and adjusts the signal to enable the engine to reach its full potential in terms of power, fuel consumption, and drivability.

The U-Connect Power Plug improves engine efficiency by optimising various engine parameters to a new base map researched and developed for that specific vehicle and engine type.

Other advantages of the U-Connect / Uni Q Chip are the speed with which it can be installed (literally a couple of minutes on most cars).

The car can be returned to its original form even more quickly, and that its presence is untraceable in the majority of installations and when removed, your vehicle will be exactly as they day it left the show room.
