Chip/ ECU Tuning

Recommended Posts

Hi

I wondered if anyone has ever had their Jaguar chip tuned or the ECU remapped? I've had this done on my bike and its opened it up to amazing performance without any reliability issues whatsoever, however would this affect any reliability on the Jaguar?

 

I know modern engines are governed by rev limiters and top end speed and are capable of a lot more than they are set to but still never owned a Jaguar before I am a cautious.

 

Oh its an F-type by the way.

Hi Tony,

 

I know that some members have had their cars remapped, and it has improved performance, but they have been mostly on older cars.

 

I don't think a new F Type wold benefit that much.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Thanks Pete.

 

I've looked online and there are estimated power increase of 40BHP but there's no evidence of anyone having done on the F-Type and I read that there's a company that upgrade the pulley on the supercharger and remap that gives about 60bhp increase.

Not the Jaguar, I've only owned the XKR for 2 weeks therefore, early days yet. However I did remap/chip my SLK32 (AMG) Mercedes and experienced a good increase of power and the limiters where taken off going through the gear changes etc giving a greater acceleration. I did not get any problems with it.
