How fast will my car acclerate from 0-100 Km/h after PIASINENGINEERING tuning ?

How fast will my car acclerate from 0-100 Km/h after PIASINENGINEERING tuning ?

The reduced time for acceleration and car performance is dependent on the effect and gain in torque.

On several models PIASINENGINEERING have measured the acceleration time before and after tuning and the results are published on the specific car models found via the products page.

Because there are many factors that affect the result, we have decided to show the difference in percent instead of time. The intervals that are shown are based on an ordinary overtaking manouver. In general the accleration time will be reduced in the same percentage as that of the engine effect.

Other performance modifications ?

Other performance modifications ?

It's very important that the software is adapted to the hardware that came with your car to avoid trouble. We strongly advise you from using other parts that are not included in our upgrade, like a dump valve, bigger downpipe etc.

Can the dealer see that my car is modified?

Can the dealer see that my car is modified?

There is no removal or addition of any hardware so there is no physical indication that the car has been modified. Engine electronics behave exactly as original, most current diagnostic equipment cannot detect any difference. If however the car is left in performance mode it becomes obvious that its not standard when someone drives the car, this could be confirmed by datalogging requested boost values. As there are no permanent changes to the ECU the factory original code can simply be reloaded at any point in time.

Can my garage & mechanic see that my car has been tuned ?

Can my garage & mechanic see that my car has been tuned ?

Your local garage does not normally have the skill or equipment to read files from the ECU, to do this they have to send the ECU to Bosch or the vehicle manufacturer.

We never encourage the PIASINENGINEERING user to cheat their garage, car salesman etc. that the car is tuned with our product. We think instead it's better to tell the truth. The PIASINENGINEERING doesn't in any way affect servicing or fault diagnosis.

Does it matter if my car is manual or automatic ?

Does it matter if my car is manual or automatic ?

The software upgrade from PIASINENGINEERING is very well adapted to the existing type of gearbox, to avoid trouble and provide the best performance, acceleration and drivabillity.

What about "Wear and Tear" ?

What about "Wear and Tear" ?

PIASINENGINEERING tuning doesn't affect "wear and tear" at all.
It's how you drive and look after your car (service intervals etc) that affect the condition of your vehicle.

What about the fuel consumtion after Piasiniengineering tuning ?

What about the fuel consumtion after Piasiniengineering tuning ?

Optimizing the software in the ECU will provide increased power and less fuel consumtion in general.

Will my car go any faster after PIASINENGINEERING tuning ?

Will my car go any faster after PIASINENGINEERING tuning ?

In most cases your car will achieve a higher top speed.

In carīs equipped with a rev limiter (most modern carīs have) PIASINENGINEERING have in some cases increased the rev limit to reach a higher top speed.
