I have bought this racechip from the Chiptuning von RaceChip - die Powerbox für sicheres Motor Tuning – RaceChip Chiptuning
for my Brera. Was very cheap, payed 129,-€ for it and they promised power increase to 250hp so I gave it a try. When it came, installing took me a minute as they told me. So I went for test drive and immediately I felt the real increase. Also the consumption got better about an liter decrease in average. Was very happy with it....but....but after two weeks,about 1k km car started to smoke a lot and got a message have engine check, I was pretty sure it was DPF because the car went to emergency mode and started filter regen. So I hoped was normal but from than, the car was smoking all the time and i got the filter regen every 500km. Was very bad, my car is white, so the whole back was covered by black smoke particles. We tried to solve this with the racechip tech.guy, but everything worked just for a week or two.
Have anyone of you tried this so far???
Also before this physical chip, I got custom remap with DPF removal and EGR closing, also worked great but after around 500km car started to smoke like crazy everytime when i touched the throttle, performance was amazing, but I couldnt accept that smoke. So the guy tried other remap configuration but nothing changed it, and he was very experienced and remaps I have to say, doing the latest V8 or even V12 diesel engines and also having one 159 with 2.4 done up to 260hp just with remap without any extra smoke. So after this he did not understand how it was possible. So we put everything to the original state as before, and immediatelly on first start and followed drive no smoke at all.
