Chip tuning on a dyno

Post by syneman » Sun Nov 03, 2019 8:44 pm

I'm wondering if any of you have 'chip tuned" your Pulsar? I have a reputable place near me that says they can get about 10-15 hp more out of my 1.2 Dig-t. I guess it's adding a bit more boost on the turbo. Anyway, just checking before maybe pondering into this.

Cheers

They work by boosting fuel rail pressure along with turbo boost. They do work

It's entirely up to pal, but the 1.2 is a very fragile engine without a remap

What do you mean a "fragile engine without a remap"? Do you mean it has much more potential?

I suspect by 'fragile' he means it could blow up, or at least fail, if you try to uprate it.

I mean that unfortunately the 1.2 Turbo engines have a very high failure rate at best, unless you're one of the very lucky few!

If you don't mind us asking, what mileage has your pulsar done, and what year is it? Do you need to top up your oil regularly and if you do, roughly how much/often?

My Pulsar has 41,000 km. I think it's the same engine that is in the Renault Clio, which is quite popular. Anyway, I think I will not mess with it to be safe.
