  • NON chip power options ???

    Just wondering are there any practical options that I could try to get a little bit better performance and mileage than just fitting a chip.
    Or is a chip the best stand alone bang for bucks option?

    So do/ spend nothing an get more go? Not possible. Sorry.

    Remove the DPF. Major exhaust blockage. Also replace main muffler with something more free flowing. 5-10% more power. K&N filter. Power increase maybe???

    Chips unlock the true power within.

      I'm not a fan of chips to be honest. Most of them just raise common rail pressure or increase injector duration, some adjust timing. These methods surely have to have a negative effect on the lifespan of your injection system components.
      If you want to make things breath a bit better to unleash a few ponies and gain a bit of efficiency, I would be looking at a replacement exhaust system from the turbo, all the way to the back.

        NS Dan. Be careful with exhaust advice.

          Cheers Goodsy, I know about the DPF but was just giving my general thoughts

            Not just the DPF the cat also plays a major part in the NS exhaust system as many are finding out the hard way.

              I'm a little hazy on the details - what does playing with the NS EGR and inlet manifold achieve?

                No sure why the negative thoughts about chips.

                I had some ex-Mitsubishi engineers work for me a couple of years ago, and when I quizzed them about the 'down' side of chips they explained to me the reasons for the factory configuration being sub-optimal.

                In a nutshell, they need to make cars that comply with international emission regulations, even after the car is 5 years old. Only way to comply is to 'de-tune' the engine.
                Chipping it unlocks the true potential of the engine.

                I have a chip and the power/torque benefit is real.

                  NS manifold if not upgarded to an NT manifold becomes clogged with soot over time.
                  A power upgrade if clogged with crap but not a performance upgrade.
                  Blocking the EGR is to reduce clogging with the oil and soot mix.

                    If we're talking Diesel engines, LPG fumigation is another option for achieving more power and torque(15-25%), increases the range, improves drive ability, reduces the diesel rattle and reduces the emissions coming out the exhaust.

                      Ecu remap.
                      Water/methenol injection.
                      Petrol injection.
                      After market top mount fan cooled intercooler.
                      All very expensive for not huge gains.
                      If you dont want to go the chip then an ecu remap with some exhuast mods will give u best results.

                        Interestingly, I was talking to Taipan XP, the performance exhaust manufacturer, prior to fitting a system to my NW. They mentioned that they had so much difficulty developing an exhaust system for the NS that they no longer manufacture a system for this model.

                          After all those answers I would just buy a chip

                          You don't have to crank it to the max increase it a little and get some more

                          It's the quickest cheapest and easiest way to get more power

                            Unless you have plenty of cash and time and another 4x4 to drive while trying to Squeeze out a few more Ponys I think it Just Not Worth the Head Ache. I see too many folk pulling their hair out after it All Goes Wrong! As they say, If It Ain't Broke.....

                              You are not going to make the PJ less reliable with a good chip installed correctly.
                              Chips get a bad name from improper use.
