Q: What is the D1 Racing Engine Power Volt Chip and what is it designed to do?
A: The D1 Racing Engine Power Volt Chip is designed to improve all electric, performance and efficiency components in your vehicle, with the largest sized storage capacitors that D1 Spec currently has to offer. The D1 stores all idle and wasted electrical activity in your vehicle and releases this stored energy when the vehicle's electrical system is under stress. Such as situations when the A/C, Nav, Radio, Cooled/Heated Seats, Lights,etc are on, the D1 will step in at these points and administer a supercharged burst of electrical energy to alleviate any lagging or bogging issues associated with low power draw under vehicle stress.
Q: Will this fit on my vehicle or engine?
A: The D1 Racing Engine Chip will fit on anyvehicle listed under the compatibilities. If you don't see your vehicle listed, please contact us now.
Q: What if my battery is not located under my hood?
A: Your battery can be located under the hood, in the trunk or even under a seat. No matter where it is located the D1 is designed to have a seamless installation.
Q: What kind of performance and efficiency gains can I expect?
A: The D1 Racing Volt Chip will add upwards of 20 horsepower and torque, improve fuel economy by 2-4 mpg and also improve your light output, your electrical throttle response, improve vehicle idle, start-up and allow for the alternator to be run much less often due to the lowered electric burden on the vehicle. This makes our chip ideal for both the economy vehicle and full sports car alike.
Q: If your claims are right, why don't all manufacturers install these on a stock vehicle?
A: This is the most asked question we receive. Simply put, auto manufacturers have to meet certain budget and part goals for each segment of vehicles they sell. When a part is factored into adding into a vehicle, the part has to be multiplied millions of times over for each vehicle and have with it a multi-million dollar price tag, which they would simply pass on to you with a surcharge. Auto manufacturers have direct access to horsepower and torque conversions simply with a software change within their ECU or engine chip, the amount of breathability of the vehicle and engine CC size. Due to all these factors, many add-on parts such as cold air intakes, engine chips or high power exhausts are lef tout of stock vehicles to curb costs.
Q: How hard is the D1 Racing Volt Chip to install? Can an amateur do it?
A: The D1 comes with a full set of instructions and requires just basic garage tools and no knowledge of how your vehicle operates mechanically to install. All that is required is to connect the chip to your battery, ground it and then mount it securely. The D1 will handle the rest!
Q: The red LED light is staying on even after I turn off my engine? Will this drain my battery?
A: The D1 will only leave a .01 ohm LED light on, much akin to ANY security system or factory alarm. This draw is not being drawn from the vehicle but rather the stored energy of the D1 and is totally safe and normal.
Q: I see alot of chips on eBay that promise performance, do you stand behind your claims?
A: Inmany ways this is the most importantquestion. DealBuddy's philosophy is to only carry the highest quality automotive performance items for the most demanding of enthusiasts. If for any reason, including something as superficial as not liking the red box, we will take it back with no questions. That is how sure we are you will love your D1 Racing Engine Chip.
Q: Will I need to reset my ECU when I connect the D1 Racing Chip to my vehicle?
A: Most vehicles do not require this step, however if you are already having to disconnect the negative terminal prior to installing, we recommend that you power the chip and the vehicle backon at the same time for the most performance and efficieny gains. The ECU once reset, will notice a different voltage especially when it usually would have very low power reserves and would otherwise turn on the
