The extra performance achieved by the Powerchip allows your vehicle
to respond much better than stock CL63s. 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 Mercedes-Benz’s ‘hidden reserves’, to give you an
immediately noticeable improvement from your vehicle – we
guarantee it!
Torque
Torque is a measurement of your engines pulling power, and it’s
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 in-gear
acceleration is improved and faster.
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 CL63.
Fitting Details
Your car uses an ECU which has 'flash' memory. The flash EPROM
inside the ECU is a hybrid and cannot be modified via a replacement
part. Powerchip can 'flash' program the EPROM device by interfacing
with the computer's wiring connector plugs to reprogram the chip that
contains the engine's fuel delivery, ignition timing and throttle
response settings. The ECU will need to be removed from the vehicle
and sent via overnight courier to Powerchip. We have full photo ECU
removal instructions to assist you and we will contact you after the
order is made to organise the shipping information and other details.
Speed Limt
Your vehicle uses a factory speed governor that prevents the vehicle
from reaching any speed above the preset factory limit. The speed
limiter is a set of digital instructions that measures the vehicle speed
and limits acceleration at a certain speed. By adjusting the values in
the ECU, and raising the speed limiter to operate above the natural
top speed of the car (according to engine power Vs vehicle air
coefficient). This allows the vehicle to attain its natural top speed
without hitting a preset limit.This feature is safe for use on the
racetrack; however, Powerchip holds no responsibility for vehicles
driven irresponsibly. Powerchip recommends adherence to all local
road laws including speed limits. Furthermore the tyres on your
vehicle must be suitable for sustained high speeds (i.e. W, Y or Z
rated).
Driveability
Beyond the impressive torque and power gains on full throttle, many
hours were spent refining the part throttle timing maps for maximum
throttle response and driveability. Both the full throttle and part
throttle maps are changed for improved driveability in day-to-day
driving.
In other words, you don’t need to be on the racetrack to notice the
Powerchip performance improvement.
Manufacturers Tolerances
Mercedes-Benz 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
CL63 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 horsepower and toque. It is important
not to advance the timing beyond the capabilities of the fuel used, or
else detonation can occur. Peak horsepower is 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 horsepower
and torque, resulting in better acceleration and various other driving
benefits.
49 State Emissions Legal
The Powerchip complies with U.S. EPA Memorandum 1A, or it has not
been found nor is believed to be unlawful for use under the provisions
of the Clean Air Act. Currently, Powerchip is not legal in California for
vehicles that may be used on a highway. Powerchip is currently
undergoing testing for certification under the Californian Air
Resources Board (CARB) exemption process.
Our Satisfaction Guarantee
Every Powerchip sold in North America comes with an unconditional
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!
Octane ratings
The Powerchip is designed to get the best from your engine, and to do
this you must use a high performance fuel (91 Octane minimum). It is
not possible to improve the performance on late model fuel injected
vehicles using poor quality fuels, such as 87 or 89 octane. When
ordering your Powerchip upgrade, your Power Consultant will ask you
for the octane rating you would like your program to run.
Powerchip Gold 91 is designed to run on fuel with an octane rating of
either 91 or 92. Powerchip Gold 93 is designed to run on fuel with an
octane rating of 93 or higher. We highly recommend that you use the
highest-octane fuel available to you, such as 92, 93 or 94 octane if a
higher than 91-octane fuel is available.
Warranty
All Gold 93 Powerchips come with a three year, unlimited mile
warranty, which means that if anything occurs with the Powerchip in
that time, we will replace it without charge to you. An optional
extended Powerchip warranty is also available at an additional $90 at
the time of ordering. This extends the warranty period on any Power
chip to six years.
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
To briefly summarize the information: if your car is covered by a new
or dealer warranty, the dealer may not ‘void’ a warranty simply
because you have fitted an aftermarket product. SEMA, the
automotive aftermarket industry body in North America has made the
following statements regarding aftermarket products such as
performance chips...
"The vehicle manufacturer is not allowed to void the vehicle warranty
just because aftermarket equipment is installed on the vehicle..."
"...In cases where such a failed aftermarket part is responsible for a
warranty claim, the (vehicle) manufacturer must arrange a settlement
with the part manufacturer, but the new vehicle warrant is not void
under the law."
"If the failure to honor a claim involves the new-vehicle warranty, and
it appears that the (vehicle) manufacturer is improperly denying a
claim, the incident should be reported to the Federal Trade
Commission (FTC)."
The fitment of the Powerchip will not have a detrimental effect on
your vehicle performance or engine longevity, and therefore does not
interfere with the manufacturers warranty in any way.
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.
Cost Effectiveness
As we all know, modifying late model vehicles is not a cheap exercise,
however, when you look at it on a hp per dollar basis, the Powerchip
comes in ahead of any other modification you could make to your
Mercedes-Benz. Have a look at just how well the Powerchip stacks
