The extra performance achieved by the Powerchip allows your
vehicle to respond much better than stock Z3 1.9 Manual
E36/7s. You will notice an effortless push back into the driver’s
seat, to give you a much more enjoyable and at times safer driving
experience. The Powerchip will tap into your BMW’s ‘hidden
reserves’, to give you an immediately noticeable improvement
from your vehicle – we guarantee it!
Torque
Torque is a measurement of your engine’s pulling power, and it is
torque that pulls you up hills, allowing your engine a more linear
and aggressive acceleration curve. With the Powerchip, you notice
the increase in torque right throughout the rev range, which gives
you far greater flexibility at low engine revolutions. Towing will
become less demanding, and you will no longer feel the need to
take the engine to the redline in each gear to get the performance
you demand... It’s always there for you, when you really need it
most!

Acceleration
Increased Power and Torque results in faster acceleration. And it
is not just standing start acceleration that is improved, your ingear acceleration is as well.
If overtaking is important to you, you will feel safe knowing that
you spend less time on the “wrong side of the road”, improving
the safety of your car, for you and your family or passengers.
Perhaps you feel that you need that extra bit of power when you
are lined up at the "traffic light grand prix" against another car
with similar (or more) power? If you want to have the unfair
advantage that will give you more ‘GO’ away from the lights, you
need a Powerchip performance software upgrade for your Z3 1.9
Manual E36/7.
Fitting Details
Your car contains the latest technology ECU that can be reprogrammed through the on-board diagnostic port (OBD-II).
Specialised software interfaces with your vehicle’s engine
management system to extract the electronic code via serial
download. Once the information has been read, Powerchip
technicians apply the performance changes and upload the
performance program back through the OBD-II port. Installation
cannot be performed by the end user. Programming must occur
at an Authorized Powerchip Office or at authorised Powerchip
Platinum dealers. The programming takes approximately 2 hour's
to complete.
On Road Development
Where Powerchip really shines out over its competitors is the
emphasis and time spent refining the program for drivability and
enjoyment. Much more a ‘real world’ gain than full throttle horse
power runs on a dyno, part throttle refinement is a gain everyone
uses every time they drive the vehicle. Flat spots and poor off the
line performance are smoothed out in this process, and transient
throttle conditions are made razor sharp for the ultimate in
response. Real time changes to tables like throttle response and
power enrichment are done on road to fine tune the driving
experience of the vehicle, with acceleration timing equipment
used to ensure consistent and measurable gains in part throttle
drivability.
Drivability
Powerchip technicians do not spend their whole research and
development focus tuning the full throttle performance of each
vehicle. A significant emphasis is placed on the part throttle
performance. We understand that driving in everyday conditions is
more than just flat out acceleration, with your foot flat to the floor.
With Powerchip performance software, your car will perform to its
potential, even when you are not demanding the peak
performance. You no longer need to mash the throttle to take off
briskly, and in-gear overtaking can be performed without needing
to change down gears.
One of the main benefits of choosing to enhance your vehicle with
the Powerchip is the improvement you will feel in all driving
situations, no matter what your driving style is...
Manufacturers Tolerances
BMW unfortunately leaves large tolerances in the performance
characteristics of its entire fleet to allow for drivers that are
negligent on maintenance, and who are non-enthusiasts. The Z3
1.9 Manual E36/7 is ‘de-tuned’ to be able to run on the poorest
grade of fuel that the car is likely to encounter anywhere in the
world, and also to allow for the small percentage of owners who
put their cars reliability to the test due to their lack of mechanical
understanding. In most cases, our clients are enthusiasts who
place more emphasis on the performance characteristics of their
vehicle, and therefore the Powerchip does not need to be
programmed as conservatively as the stock software.
Modified Spark Advance
In the old days the ignition distributor controlled the engine spark
timing. Changes to the position in the distributor will result in
changed ignition settings, and is a good method of ‘tune-up’ for
older vehicles. Modern engine ignition is controlled by a series of
tables or maps. These maps give the engine any instructions
required to operate, under ALL load and rev per minute access
points.
Similar to the old systems, advancing the point of ignition within a
cylinder results in increased power and toque. It is important not
to advance the timing beyond the capabilities of the fuel used, or
else detonation can occur. Peak kilowatts are achieved when
ignition timing is set as close to the point of detonation as
possible, without exceeding it. This is the primary purpose for
asking the octane rating each client uses most frequently, so that
the software is set to the correct level of ignition advance for the
fuel used.
The end result of ignition advance changes is increased power
and torque, resulting in better acceleration and various other
driving benefits.
Octane ratings
The Powerchip is designed to get the best from your engine, and
to do this it is recommended that you use a high performance
fuel. When ordering your Powerchip upgrade, your Power
Consultant will ask you for the octane rating you would like your
program to run. The advantage of using better fuels can be
explained in further detail by your consultant.
Powerchip Gold is designed to run on fuel with an octane rating of
95 (Premium Unleaded, Caltex Vortex, Ampol Gold). Powerchip
Gold 98 is designed to run on fuel with an octane rating of 98 or
higher (Shell Optimax, BP Ultimate, Mobil Synergy 8000). We
highly recommend that you use the highest-octane fuel available
to you.
Our Satisfaction Guarantee
Every Powerchip sold in Australia comes with an 14-day money
back guarantee. This ensures that the Powerchip will live up to
your expectations, not ours! If for any reason you are unsatisfied
with the Powerchip, you may return the Powerchip to your place of
purchase for a full refund of the purchase price (not including
shipping and handling, installation and removal etc.).
Our satisfaction guarantee offers you total peace of mind, and
makes the purchase of the Powerchip risk free. By purchasing a
Powerchip you have nothing to lose – and everything to gain!
Servicing
In a regular service it is very unlikely that the dealer would
perform any tasks that are additional to those required by the
manufacturer. The dealer tool may be able to detect that modified
software has been fitted to the vehicle. The vehicle can still
continue to be flashed by the dealer with any software updates
that become available. The Powerchip does not 'lock out' the
dealer from reflashing the car. The Powerchip software does not
make it any different to service than a vehicle with out a
Powerchip. All 'Fault Codes' continue to able to be read, just like a
standard car
Reflashes
In the event of a dealer flashing over the Powerchip software, we
offer inexpensive reflashes to the original purchaser of the
software. For $100 (plus the cost of shipping) we will reflash the
same Powerchip software that was originally purchased back into
the ECU that is sent to our office for the duration of the warranty
period.
Warranty
All Powerchip upgrades come with a three-year, unlimited
kilometer warranty, for the original purchaser, which means that if
anything occurs to the Powerchip in that time, we will replace it
without charge to you.
The terms and conditions of the Powerchip warranties can be
viewed in detail on our web site at
http://www.powerchipgroup.com/products/warranty.asp
Value for a Lifetime
The investment you make in the Powerchip will last for as long as
you keep your car, and for most of our customers, that is normally
for 3 or 4 years. So when you consider the benefits of the chip
over a number of years, it is not a lot to pay for extra performance
you will probably use nearly every day. As a percentage of the total
cost of your car, the Powerchip works out to be very cost effective.
Also, with the Powerchip, you can expect your car to command a
higher price when it comes time to sell!
Cost Effectiveness
As we all know, modifying late model vehicles is not a cheap
exercise, however, when you look at it on a kw per dollar basis,
the Powerchip comes in ahead of any other modification you
could make to your BMW. Have a look at just how well the
