Default Chipping the Ducato 2.0 JTD

On some applications it will also increase the boost pressure by opening

waste gate at a different time.

You beat me to it Andy! Don't forget also that the ECU measures several
parameters, eg exhaust gas oxygen levels, temperatures etc, so it's a bit
more complex than just timing the injection. Waste gates are commonly used
to dump boost pressure to save the transmission. Turbos massively increase
mid-range torque which will often knock out gearboxes if uncontrolled. But
again manufacturers are extremely conservative with this. However it's more
low-speed torque that I want and a turbo won't help that much. A 6-speed box
is perhaps the answer!

Has anybody had any experience of chipping their Fiat Ducato motorhome.


I bought a motrhome that had a 1997cc diesel engine ,Didn't think to ask the engine size when buying thought it woukd come wth the correct engine size.. it's not powerful enough so I had it re chipped and it's erformance as increased dramatically. had it for 5 years now with ni trouble at all. Make sure they fit a larger cooler when rechipping

Or do you mean "Chipping" as with electronics where you want to be able to
use cheats or pirated software??

If the later, chip what??????

Why would you need to "Chip" a Ducato??? Is it stolen???

Ha! You gotta laugh at the previous reply. Steve the 2 litre JTD Ducato engine is turboed and should move just about any van at a good clip, unless something is wrong either with the turbo or the fuel supply. It really doesnt need chipping!
