Unichip gets round Nissan remapping problem with plug and play device


Unichip says its device can boost power by 20 bhp

Unichip Europe has unveiled a new plug and play ‘U-connect’ Unichip piggy back ECU for the Nissan 350Z.

The Nissan coupe is a popular choice for tuning enthusiasts but cannot be remapped using OBD flash programming.

Supplied for installation by a Unichip dealer, the device, called Uni-Q, works by intercepting the signals from the Nissan 350Z’s factory sensors.

The company said that rolling road testing has proven that it can increase power on a standard Nissan 350Z by 20 bhp, raising peak output from a measured 264 to a mighty 284 bhp.

Similarly, torque increases by an impressive 26 lb.ft, bringing the total from 236 lb.ft to 262 lb.ft.
