Sorry, I'm too old to know anything useful about chips; to quote Mark Algazy, I'm "a carbureted man in a fuel injected world".thank u so much for that info it was really good info , just one more thing, would a unichip help any , as more power , dose that mean more torque ?
Good points. You're right, they won't change the engine torque, but they will increase the wheels torque to the ground, which is still beneficial.The following 2 items won't change your engine torque a bit but it will 'feel' as if it has more torque. a.) go to a smaller diameter tire b.) change your gear sets to a higher ratio.
Thank guys , this is what I'm doing is home work ,, all this is very help full and you all get a A for your help :rocker:Sorry, I'm too old to know anything useful about chips; to quote Mark Algazy, I'm "a carbureted man in a fuel injected world".
But it seems to me that most of them are tuned for high hp at high rpm, which is the exact opposite of what you're trying to do, and will in fact hurt your low-end torque, so be very careful and do your homework (more than just manufacturer's claims) before you buy and install a chip.
You understand that HP = torque x RPM, so no, more hp does not necessarily mean more torque, it just means that the faster you can spin a given engine the more hp it will make. That's why these chips are tuned for high rpm, because that's where the big hp numbers are, and big hp numbers are what sells stuff to (mostly uninformed) customers. The fact that most people other than drag racers will never see those high rpm ranges in any street driving (never mind a 4WD trail...) does not deter buyers from being wowed by the high hp claims and buying them.
I've never seen these charts. Can you post them or links to them ?after seeing the dyno charts from the older engines and the new ones - there is a huge difference in low end torque
Thanks Ahmed fo rthis tip. I am going to try it out this weekend in the desert. :rocker:I think with the 2010 and up FJ it required driving in 4L when hitting those nice huge dunes in Liwa or elsewhere in the UAE.
Try running up a dune face in 4L and third gear and you can shift to second if you feel power loss...you will be surprised where your 2011 will tkae you in 4L.
I used to have a 2008 and now drive a 2010 and the driving charecterstics of both are totally different in off road (desert) driving.
