DO NOT BUY A CHIP FOR YOUR COMMON RAIL DIESEL
OR FIND YOURSELF BUYING A NEW DIESEL PUMP AND INJECTORS WITHIN TWO YEARS OR WORSE STILL ENGINE FAILURE AFTER AS LITTLE AS 20,000 KMS FROM THE TIME THE CHIP IS FIRST FITTED.
New pump and injectors for your common rail diesel between $8,000 to $10,000 for most models. Replace the engine $30,000 plus for most models.
Most people these days when they buy a new turbo diesel car just automatically think when they want to make it go better I will buy a diesel chip for my car and there are plenty of people out there that will sell them one. But what most people are only just beginning to understand is that diesel chips were designed and manufactured for EFI diesel pumps not the new common rail diesel. You may say what does it matter well I am here to tell you it matters a hell of a lot.
The diesel chips that are being fitted to the common rail diesels go to the pressure switch on the pump and the wiring loom at the pump. What the chip than does is increase the fuel pressure going to the injectors to deliver more diesel to the engine therefore giving the engine more power. What most people dont realise is the fuel rail pressure of the common rail diesel is in excess of 1,800 Bar or 26,000 psi. The reason for this is so that the diesel atomises better when it enters the cylinder. When you fit the chip to a common rail diesel it increases the fuel pressure to the injectors 3,000 to 5,000 to 10,000 psi more depending on the programme in the chip (the more aggressive the programme in the chip is the better the car goes the worse it is for the injectors and the pump). What is happening to the common rail diesels is when you increase the fuel pressure and not mechanically open the nozzle on the injector more, it is putting massive stress on the needle of the injector that it was never engineered for. That is why we are seeing one common rail diesel after another failing when fitted with a chip because what is actually happening is it is fatiguing the end of the pin clean off the injector. The injector then cuts a hole straight through the piston as though it was a water cutter cutting through steel. This happens so fast that the customer will not even feel it until it is too late.
Also ramping up fuel pressures that the pump was not engineered for puts the pump under huge stress. We are seeing common rail diesel pumps failing after two years when being fitted with a diesel chip. We have also seen common rail diesels that have been less than a year old fitted with a diesel chip and one of the injector pins have fatigued off and the vehicles have not done more than 30,000 kilometres. This is extremely alarming for anyone who has a chip fitted to their common rail diesel. In our opinion they would be mad not to have it removed immediately. You might say that this is just scare mongering but all you have to do is talk to people in the diesel industry that are repairing these types of cars and you will fully understand the seriousness of the situation. You must also understand that we sell chips too.
There is a product out there that is called a module. It is not as well-known as its cousin the diesel chip because it has not been around for very long as it was designed and engineered specifically for the use on the new common rail diesels. But as time moves on people will only talk about modules for their diesels and diesel chips will be a thing of the past. The Diesel Smart Module plugs directly into each individual injector it electronically controls the injector downstream from the ECU.
The Diesel Smart Module collects the signal from the ECU as it comes into it then sends out via a high speed processor the new signal that will control the injector. With a module we are not increasing fuel rail pressures at all they stay the same. We are mechanically through electronics controlling the injector as it was designed to be. This gives us huge advantages over a chip. With the Diesel Smart Module we can change injection timing, pulse width, pulse time, diesel delivery and so on giving the user genuine fuel savings and genuine safe power increases.
The Diesel Smart Module is fully programmable which means that it can have programmes designed and built for your specific needs. It is also smart enough to carry four different programs in it. This opens a whole new world to the customer basically you have four modules in one. Customers can choose at will between an economy tune, a tow tune, a more aggressive tow tune and an all-out power tune. Combined with Diesel Smart integrated EGT system, Diesel Smart backs their modules with a full engine and drive train warranty whilst the car is still under factory warranty. This warranty comes with badging to suit, build plate with vehicle information engraved onto it which is then fitted to the vehicle for warranty tracking purposes from that time on.
So you can see that The Diesel Smart Module and Diesel Smart EGT systems are specifically designed to suit the new common rail diesel and they are the only company to back it with a full drive line warranty with a trackable warranty build plate. That's the sort of confidence that we all need on our cars.
