    RaceChip

    Remapping

    Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. In contrast, the process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU.

  • All Power

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip as well as remapping use software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). If durability is relevant, the results are usually the same, because they are only limited by the available power reserves.

    Remapping

    If you want, you can further adjust the individual software to your needs after installation e.g. via the RaceChip Smartphone App. Remaps are set in stone and not adjustable.

    Safe Engine Warranty

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered. Remapping leads to a loss of the manufacturer’s warranty.

  • Easy Reset to
    Factory Setting

    Easy Reset to Factory Setting

    RaceChip

    Remapping

    In contrast to remapping, a RaceChip can be removed in a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Plug & Play in 10 Minutes

RaceChip

Easy DIY installation within 10 min. No mechanical knowledge or special tools are required. RaceChip works right out of the box.

Remapping

The process of remapping is very time consuming and may damage the ECU, if done wrong.

All Power reserves activated

RaceChip

Uses software to get the best performance out of the hardware (engine). RaceChip utilizes power reserves smart and efficiently and can’t be outperformed by remapping in most dimensions.

Remapping

Also limited by the power reserves, if durability is relevant. Power upgrades by 40% are castles in the air without exchanging components or harming your car in the long run.

Fine-Tuning also after Installation

RaceChip

A RaceChip is programmed specifically for your engine. On top, you can fine-tune the settings after installation, if required (e.g. your specific engine variants slightly).

Remapping

Remaps may (but not have to) take standard factory model variations into account. Though, after installation they are set in stone and can’t be adjusted to your individual needs later on.

Two Engine Protection Systems

RaceChip

Manufacturers protection mechanisms remain functional, plus additional RaceChip Engine Protection System. This ensures maximum safety and longevity of your car.

Remapping

Manufacturers protection mechanisms can get overwritten. This e.g. leads to your engine not detecting overheating or too much pressure anymore. I.e. wear and tear are increased above an acceptable level.

Safe Engine Warranty

RaceChip

RaceChip products comprise an engine warranty of up to 2 years, which covers all relevant engine components. Moreover, the manufacturer’s engine hardware remains unaltered.

Remapping

Remapping is detected during a normal service, which definitely leads to a loss of the manufacturers’ engine warranty. Most remappers do not offer a warranty on your engine.

Easy Reset to Factory Setting

RaceChip

Easy removal within a few minutes (e.g. before a service) in order to reset the car to the factory setting. Our tuning can’t be overwritten during a service. It can be reprogrammed and transferred to another car.

Remapping

Removal is difficult and will remain detectable (manufacturers’ ECU counts each flash). Moreover, a remap may be overwritten during the service of your car.

Your Mercedes still has power in reserve.

Tap into its full potential with RaceChip.

Why do different Mercedes engines sometimes have such different outputs – despite having the same cubic capacity? Because in today's Mercedes', the main difference between the engines is the software – not the hardware. Our engine tuning products use the same principle.

With RaceChip engine tuning parts, your Mercedes will often have more engine power than the next up the Mercedes range. At a fraction of the cost.

Performance optimization for your Mercedes

The world's first automobile was a Mercedes. Still today the brand is distinguished by veritable quality and trailblazing innovation – a promising connection for a German chip tuning technology leader like RaceChip.


Mercedes was the first brand to introduce the crumple zone, air bags and anti-lock brakes. They used the world's first ceramic brakes, and invented modern safety systems like PreSafe and assistance systems like Distronic. A highly sophisticated auxiliary device like RaceChip is a match made in heaven for such a brand with a long history of technological innovation.


No matter which Mercedes model you drive, whether saloon or T model, coupé or shooting brake, convertible or roadster, off-roader, estate car or van, we at RaceChip offer electronic engine tuning for all models.


Electronic power improvement for your Mercedes

Mercedes-Benz meets the standard laid out in its motto “Nothing but the best” in all of its vehicles. At RaceChip, we follow the same approach in fine-tuning our optimization software to the various engines from the brand with a star. With a RaceChip auxiliary device – a type of mini-computer with optimization software designed specially-designed for your Mercedes engine, the drive in your Mercedes will be even more incomparable whether you're in an A or S class


Benefit from the most innovative performance improvement with RaceChip chip tuning and tap into the potential that today's vehicle electronics in your Mercedes offers. The now optimized electronic signals that control the engine give it a power increase of up to 30% more HP and up to 30% more Nm torque.


Today you can obtain Mercedes-Benz models with engine performance ranging from 136 HP to 204 HP, which are all built on the same engine block for CDI engines with a capacity of 2,143 CC. The carmaker generates these varying performance levels primarily through adjustments in the electronic engine controls. Our chip tuning is based on the same technological principles. With our tuning box you'll have a product that more than exceeds the manufacturer's technological standards.


Quality and safety are always the focus in all of our developments. That's why we guarantee that our performance improvements will always stay within your engine's thermal and mechanical power reserves. Engine tuning via auxiliary devices also have the decisive advantage that the engine protection systems in your Mercedes remain completely active.


Experience Mercedes quality anew: more power, more dynamism, more experience

No matter which Mercedes you drive, whether diesel, petrol or hybrid, BlueEfficiency or BlueTEC, you'll be driving another vehicle with RaceChip chip tuning. Here are just a few examples of what you can achieve with RaceChip in your Mercedes:


In 220 CDI engines with 170 HP standard power in the current series (regardless whether A, B, C or E class) you'll always exceed the power of the 250 CDI engine (Mercedes' next-highest model) with RaceChip diesel tuning. And you'll get it at a fraction of the cost.


For example, an E 220 CDE BlueEfficiency with standard 170 HP reaches an astounding 212 HP with RaceChip Ultimate. The E 250 BlueEfficiency only offers a standard 204 HP.


The 3.0 CDI in the Viano shows what it's really made of with RaceChip, making a power leap from 224 to 292 HP – abundant power for a zippy family driving experience.The Vito with a 122 CDI even has a bit more—you'll have 295 HP available with RaceChip. This makes this transporter an express delivery machine.


The ML 350 BlueTEC is already well motorized with standard 258 HP and 620 Nm. But what a difference with RaceChip: suddenly it offers 334 HP and lets you completely forget the empty weight of well over 2 tonnes. Smaller, lighter vehicles in the city will just stare in disbelief when you speed away from the intersection with 774 Nm torque.

The S 350 BlueTEC diesel, which features a standard 258 HP and 620 Nm torque, experiences performance improvement with RaceChip Ultimate for a spectacular 313 HP and 740 Nm – performance data that suits this premium vehicle extremely well.


In the new Mercedes-Benz A Class with the A 160 CDI, even our entry-level model, RaceChip One, easily boosts it over the 100 level and lands at a lively 110 HP (as well as an incredible 271 Nm).


RaceChip can even tap into power reserves with absolute top models like the CLS 63 AMG. RaceChip Ultimate catapults this modern V8 from 585 HP and 800 Nm to 639 HP and 900 Nm. These values are at least on par with prominent Mercedes tuners like Brabus. However, with RaceChip you'll always get much better value for money.


Optimize your Mercedes now, too.

Help differentiating CR/PD

Several Audi, Seat, Skoda and VW model series with 2.0 TDI engines use both CR and PD ("Pumpe-Düse" / Unit injector) technology.

RaceChip chip tuning is specially customized to the applicable fuel injection technology with respect to both hardware and software. If your vehicle is specified in the list of applicable models below (all other 2.0 TDI models feature just one type of technology), it is important to determine, before choosing a tuning product, which type of injection technology is installed in your vehicle. For such models, you will therefore find the “CR” or “PD” designation after your engine code.

Performance The following Volkswagen Group model series are applicable: Engine code CR Engine code PD
100kW (136hp) Audi: A3 (8P), A6 (C6)
VW: Golf Plus, Jetta V, Passat B6
CAGB, CBAA, CFFA AZV, BMA, BNA, BRF
103kW (140hp) Audi: A3 (8P)
Seat: Altea (5P)
Skoda: Octavia (1Z), Superb (3T)
VW: Caddy (2K, 2C), Eos (1F), Golf V,
Golf VI, Jetta V, Passat B6, Touran (1T)
CBAB, CBDB, CFFB,
CFHC, CJAA, CLCB,
CLJA
BKD, BKP, BMM, BMP

If your vehicle is in this list and you are not sure if it is a CR or PD version, then simply follow one of the following steps to identify CR or PD technology.

Using the engine code:

For PD models, the engine code consists of 3 characters, while for CR there are 4 characters. You can find your vehicle’s engine code in the specification sheet in your service booklet or on the data sticker in your engine bay.
