Stages 1, 2, 3

Chiptuning Stages

The different tuning file Stages depends on the mechanical configuration of the car.

Please note that ZIPtuning offers calibrations for all sorts of octane levels in fuel. Your tuning files will be calibrated for the requested fuel quality. This difference in fuel will determine how the car is tuned. Higher octane fuels support more ignition timing advancement, higher boost levels, and leaner air-to-fuel mixtures compared to lower octane.

Stage 1 tuning

The Stage 1 tuning files are designed on a vehicle with stock hardware and no aftermarket parts at all. Alle Stage 1 calibration are developed on a 4wd dynamometer with and are data logged extensively and long term tested to make sure the modifications are perfect.

The Stage 1 tuning files are developed for use in a car with original parts. We make a difference between the torque output in tuning files for cars with a manual gearbox and automatic transmission. We respect most of the limiters for component protection and anti jerk function will be kept original. We remove unnecessary factory limitations for vehicles which are downgraded or limitations like fuel cut off and unwanted torque limitations. The remapping was designed with optimized ignition, boost, and fuel targets for enhanced performance and responsiveness on a vehicle with mainly stock hardware. The tuning files for the sport models will be calibrated standard on RON 98. Normal models with petrol engine are calibrated standard for RON 95.

Stage 1 Powerpack

The Stage 1 tuning file Powerpack contains three Stage 1 files we different power settings for the same car. Because we got a lot of request from clients to give a little extra or little less torque, we have combined three files into one package which give the user full flexibility. These power packages are especially designed for smaller tuning companies and car enthusiasts.

Stage 2 tuning

The Stage 2 tuning files files are developed for engines with small modifications to inlet and exhaust. Examples are intercooler, downpipes, sport cats, etc.

Stage 2 tuning for a petrol engine

All Stage 2 tuning files are calibrated for standard high octane values. RON 98-102

Example of parts: Bigger intercooler, downpipe, sport exhaust, air intake

Stage 2 tuning for a diesel engine

Example of parts:  Bigger intercooler, downpipe, sport exhaust, air intake and DPF removal

Stage 3 tuning

The Stage 3 tuning files files are developed for maximum power. We remove all limitations from the ecu. If there are different aftermarket performance parts installed in the car, there a lot of configurations possible.  For a proper Stage 3 Tuning, it is important that the client provides complete data logs. If you want to use Stage 3 Tuning files, it is important that you have all the necessary tools and knowledge.  If not, you can damage the engine beyond repair. fine tuning on a rolling road might be necessary.

Stage 3 tuning for a petrol engine

Example of parts: bigger turbo, intercooler, downpipe, race cats, fuel pump, injectors, inlet and outletvalves and springs, bigger MAF or MAP sensor, race-clutch.

Stage 3 diesel engine

Example of parts: Bigger turbo, intercooler, downpipe, ace cats, fuel pump, injectors, bigger MAF or MAP sensor, race-clutch etcetera.
