Hi Dominic, Do you think its possible to have a simple selector in the car that let's you choose between 3 options.
1) Very fuel efficient - low power (Driver/Long distance/Highway)
2) Normal factory settings - City Driving
3) High power - when you get mad at people cutting in front of you or just in the mood.
Is it possible to have a piggyback system with 3 such settings that can be chosen at the flick of a switch ? That would be awesome..
May be this can be done with additional electronics that store the values for each setting and will simply transfer those settings to the piggyback chip (??) when selected. What do you think ?

hehe... dude it is possible... but not at the flick of a switch at the moment. But can have three different fuel maps and ignition maps. But will have to load it everytime using a laptop or programmer. Coz piggyback systems are not made to gain FE or anything. Just to remove the OE limitations. Else we have to design a pda with a program to automatically engage when some parameters are met. What you want is not impossible but will be a bit tough and would cost more to do .

Theoretically, it would be possible to design a simple electronic device that holds all the 3 sets of values in a Flash ROM and at the touch of a button transfers the appropriate set to the ECU. With lots of trial and error, someone can develop these set of values for each car model/make available in india. From a car owner point of view, this will be a simple add-on, a small elegant box that fits in under the dash or so, that allows him more options in using his car. If this device can sell under 50,000 Rs, i'd by one for sure.. Not sure if there would be a large enough market for these to do some serious r&d.. maybe a joint venture between an auto expert and a electronic harware expert ?? anyway, just fantasizing..

Can I get something like this for my Optra? http://www.nextlevelracing.com/ or
Is there anyone in Bombay who can install this? What would be the gains and how much would it cost?

To Dom: About the ecu storing information about your driving style... how does it do it when, lets say, 2-3 people drive the same car? Does it detect a difference in the driving pattern and store all the information separately for each pattern?

I see u have been working with Greddy Emanage, Hondata, HKS, Motec systems etc...
Can u tell me which cars were u working on...
It took me a long time, really long time to get some knowledge on these things for my own work.
I failed bcoz the compressor map and fuel maps were going way beyond my anything... without tools and OBD2 i was lost.
And cold start fuel map was messing up things...
How do you get to know the actual power gain without a dyno or even tune the car.
Since u took the trouble of explaining things... why dont u get into more details and share the great wealth of knowledge u have.

Re: Performance Chips
Resurrecting a really old thread here.
Mods, unable to find any other reference to the same.
Please shift to other tread if required.
Has anyone here used or had any experience with the "Volo" performance chip?
I was discussing an increase in HP with a friend the other day and this name came up. Supposed to increase horsepower by 10-15 bhp. Cost about Rs. 15,000.00. It is for an SX4 petrol. Reviews on the net are a mixed bag. I would rather get first hand info from a tbhp member.
