Re: Anyone Superchipped the 1.9 JTD engine?
It will invalidate the warranty on anything related to the engine/gearbox etc. People often claim that the dealer will not be able to tell - however with Renault(and other manufacturers I guess) when the car is plugged into the diagnostic computer it tells them what engine map it is running, so they can see if it is different from standard.With superchips the new map is encrypted so the dealer cannot change it only overwrite it.
I think the reason some people have worries with superchips is that they were one of the first companies to offer "chips" and as with anything 1 person tells 10 people of a bad experience, but only 3 of a good experience. Lots of people have a mate of a mate of a mate who has had a bad experience of them. I can honestly say that they offer a fantastic service, if maybe a little costly.
Dickyb on here bought a 2nd hand superchip for his 33 off ebay, when it arrived it had a broken leg which had been soldered up - it didn't work, he contacted superchips and for £30 this supplied him with a brand new one, how many other companies would do that?
Before anyone accuses me of a vested interest I will admit that the dealer my dad and brother work for is also a Superchip dealer.
