Diesel Performance Chips (DPC) and Flash Tuning are used for enhancing the performance of diesel engine vehicles. DPCs are indirect tuning devices that boost diesel engine power by pushing more fuel and increasing the line pressure.
Using DPCs was a popular method of enhancing diesel engine power a couple of years ago when vehicle computers were not as complex as they are today. Nevertheless, Diesel performance chips are still used to give diesel engines some performance boost.
Today, with the advancement in technology, Flash tuning, which is also known as ECU remapping, is used to enhance the performance of diesel engines. Unlike DPCs, which cannot effectively modify all key parameters, ECU remapping can modify all relevant parameters when tuning your vehicle.
Thus, ECU remapping is the favored method of tuning your diesel engine vehicle as it produces more power and torque and ensures that all your vehicle’s functionality and safety features work as your vehicle’s manufacturers intended.
