PERFORMANCE CHIP FOR MAZDA RX8

Asked by Nov 26, 2014 at 04:39 PM about the Mazda RX-8

Question type: General

Do these things work? How do they work? I keep seeing them on ebay.
Will it harm the engine in the long run? Are they worth it?

A modern car comes with a "map" of fuel system and ignition patterns, designed by engineers of that car. It is based on a general use pattern. The computer chip will alter that map, and sometimes will give you a performance gain. This is a very brief answer, to get all the details consult a performance specialist like rotary reliability and racing, racing beat or the like. Also consult your dealer, as installation of the chip may alter your warranty.
