BY HOW MUCH DOES THE PERFORMANCE OF MY CAR INCREASE WITH THE TIB APP?

The car’s power and torque can even increase by over 50%. Power and torque are increased by improving engine efficiency. Enter the data in the configurator and discover what the increments are.

BY HOW MUCH DO I DECREASE MY CAR'S CONSUMPTION WITH THE TIB APP?

Consumption can decrease up to 20% on many models. To find out how long it will take you to recover your investment in TIB APP, click here. In any case, it is important to drive carefully, changing gear before taking advantage of greater performance. After installation of the control unit there is increased power and torque for the same engine rotation speed. The greater torque permits moving to the next gear at a lower speed, maintaining the same performance as before. Fewer fuel injections per minute equals less fuel used and, therefore, greater savings.

WHY DON'T THE MANUFACTURERS PUT IN OFF-THE-RACK UNITS?

There are many reasons for this. The first is marketing and segmentation of the product range. Take, for example, a manufacturer like BMW: the engine mounted on the 320d is the same as that on the 316d and the 318d, the only difference between them being in the unit programming – the so-called mapping.

Another reason concerns the amortization of design costs.
The cost of developing an engine is around 1.2-1.5 billion euros: the manufacturer therefore needs to amortize this development cost over at least 10-12 years of production. Therefore, from time to time, the manufacturer modifies the engine management map electronically, to make it appear to the public as new and more attractive.

The third reason concerns environmental conditions: the engine which must work perfectly both at the equator and at the north pole (the air density is highly variable with temperature variations) and therefore certain injection parameters (directly related to the quantity of air sucked in) must be very elastic. TIB APP allows you to fine tune this adjustment based on the environmental conditions in which the engine is being used.

A fourth reason concerns  fuel quality: although Italian fuel is not as excellent as German fuel, it is nonetheless high in octane (or cetane in the case of diesel) and  has excellent  anti-knocking properties (unlike African or Spanish fuels). Therefore, injection anticipation is also finely tuned.

The final reason relates to customer type. The manufacturer must satisfy everyone: from the pensioner who wishes to travel smoothly, to the geek who would sacrifice everything for a little more horsepower and to the professional who only checks his credit card bill from the petrol station.

L’ultima è relativa alla tipologia di clienti. Il costruttore deve soddisfare tutti: dal pensionato che desidera viaggiare in maniera fluida, allo smanettone che sacrificherebbe tutto per qualche cavallo in più, al professionista che controlla solo la carta di credito dal benzinaio.

HOW DOES THE TIB APP WORK?

The TIB APP is connected between the engine control unit and the engine sensors. We optimize these parameters. The instantaneous engine operating parameters are intercepted and optimized according to the driving situation. In this way, the TIB APP optimizes the quantity of fuel injected, the duration of the injection, the time of injection and the boost pressure. The optimization generates better engine recovery, increased power and fuel savings.

IS MORE STRESS PLACED ON THE ENGINE BY THE TIP APP?

Manufacturers prepare engines for an increase in power ahead of time. The manufacturers themselves can offer higher power levels and the evolution of existing components. Furthermore, the greater stress occurs only in the event of full delivery of power (one is not always tablet driving).

Given that the TIB APP is only activated if power is actually supplied (e.g. during acceleration), components such as the engine, clutch, gearbox and brakes are further stressed only as far as is technically sustainable. All the engine’s protection functions (recovery mode) remain unchanged.

When used appropriately, no reduction in its useful life is to be expected.

 

CAN I USE TIB APP WITH THE PARTICLE FILTER (DPF) AND WITH EURO 6 ENGINES AS WELL?

TIB APP can be used on engines with a particulate filter (DPF) without any problems. Ditto if the engine is approved for Euro 5 or Euro 6. Each TIB APP is specifically programmed for the engine on which it will be installed, so all is planned in our configuration phase. Thus guaranteeing perfect compatibility.

CAN THE CONTROL UNIT DISTURB THE ABS AND ESP?

As all our products are subjected to TIB tests, we know they cannot influence the other components in electromagnetic terms.

IS TIB APP SPECIFICALLY FOR MY CAR?

Each TIB APP is developed and programmed specifically for an engine and its control unit. This way you get optimal calibration and power delivery for your vehicle.

CAN I UNINSTALL TIB APP FROM MY VEHICLE AND RESTORE THE SERIAL CONFIGURATION?

Yes, quickly and with no problem. As soon as you have dismantled TIB APP and reconnected the original connectors, the vehicle regains the standard configuration.

CAN I INSTALL IT WITH AN AUTOMATIC GEARBOX ?

All models of cars equipped with an automatic gearbox are perfectly suitable for the installation of our additional control unit. The increases in performance and the decrease in consumption are exactly the same as those obtainedy by similar models equipped with manual gearboxes. The car’s reliability is optimally guaranteed.

WILL THE CAR WARRANTY REMAIN UNALTERED?

Certainly. The application with original connectors leaves no trace of intervention on the car’s electrical system in the event of diagnosis during an MOT. Furthermore, no data is detected as anomalous during an inspection, given that the module always works within a range of data that is compatible with that of the original control unit. Therefore no prior action on the car can ever be detected during inspection.

CAN I RETURN THE ITEM IF I AM NOT SATISFIED?

Yes. When you receive your shipment you have 14 days of right to withdrawal and you can get a full refund. However, the piece must be intact, not worn or dented and returned in its original packaging.

DO YOU PROVIDE A PRODUCT INSTALLATION SERVICE?

Yes, at our Milan office. However, installation is really simple and fast, just follow the instructions and the video that will be provided with the purchase of the product. Furthermore, we are always available via e-mail and phone for further clarifications.

I SOLD THE CAR, CAN I RE-USE IT?

Just send us back the ECU and we will reprogram it for the new car; we will replace the wiring if different and we will send it to you promptly! All at a reasonable cost.

DO YOU PROVIDE DIRECT ASSISTANCE?

Contact us at the e-mail address or phone number in the Contact section. We provide advice to resolve any kind of uncertainty about component installation and operation.
