We inspect our products from head to toe
All of our products must pass extensive tests
RaceChip ECU tuning products meet all the requirements car manufacturers place on various vehicle components. In order to ensure this, our products go through a series of tests during product development to assure flawless function and quality.
During these tests, we not only closely inspect our products, but also test their performance in the vehicle. To obtain a comprehensive analysis, we test for the perfect functioning of all engine components as well as the effects on the undercarriage and brakes.
Performance enhancement within the available power reserves
We optimize only within the power reserves. We don’t overshoot.
Nowadays, car manufacturers design their engines to achieve a wide range of performances with the same engine block. These are then sold in various car models and specifications. That’s why modern engines in standard factory conditions often have considerable, untapped power reserves.
RaceChip increases your car’s power only within its unused reserves. This completely avoids wear on engine components caused by strains that exceed the manufacturer’s allowable load.
Engine protection programs remain fully functional
RaceChip does not change anything in the manufacturer’s hardware or software
Compared with other forms of electronic performance optimization, RaceChip’s auxiliary control devices have a decisive advantage: the manufacturer’s hardware and software are not changed in the slightest.
So all the manufacturer’s engine protection systems remain completely intact. Your engine is just as safe from overheating as in standard factory condition, and all of the manufacturer’s emergency programs work unimpeded.

RECOMMENDATION BY RACECHIP (as noted here): Kia Stinger stock spark plugs are designed for good fuel quality. If used with bad or medium fuel quality (91 or lower), in rare cases the spark plugs might get damaged whether the car is tuned or not. For optimal performance and security of the spark plugs, it is beneficial to re-gap the spark plugs to 0.024-0.028 (from stock 0.034-0.036). Beyond that, suitable performance aftermarket spark plugs with a gap of 0.024-0.028 will improve performance and security.
We highly recommend using performance aftermarket spark plugs instead of the Kia Stinger stock spark plugs.
Quite a few RaceChip customers re-gapped their stock spark plugs to 0.024-0.028 (from stock 0.034-0.036) and report good performance. None of them had any issues so far. So, re-gapping the stock spark plugs might be an alternative to replacing them. However, since we always strive for the safest solution and did not extensively test the re-gapped spark plugs in the US, our official recommendation will be replacing the spark plugs.
