Plug & Play Power Plug
The Power Plug is a highly developed, re-programmable plug & play, piggyback microcomputer that works in conjunction with the Engine Management System (EMS), and is already fitted to most modern diesel engine vehicles. G&C uses Dastek POWERPLUGS which are developed live on a dedicated rolling road to ensure optimum power output for your vehicle.
A POWERPLUG is based on Unichip technology, it’s fully remappable to any other performance upgrades you decide to add to your diesel car, and can control many additional functions. Improvements in engine efficiency, power and fuel consumption can be realized. Most modern diesel-powered vehicles are electronically controlled. The Electronic Control Units (ECU) have been developed to suit World Markets, and have certain tolerances. G&C are able to offer extraordinary levels of expertise in Power Plug serial port tuning, conversions, modifications & upgrades with guaranteed results.
As a true plug-in device that operates in conjunction with the factory Engine Control Unit, the Dastek POWERPLUG computer can simply be removed at any time, returning the vehicle to standard power output. POWERPLUG is a simple 15-minute plug in – unplug, thus returning the vehicle back to factory ECU control.
The POWERPLUG computer provides significant benefits in both on and off-road operation:
Improved acceleration for safer overtaking
Maintain comfortable cruising speeds when towing in undulating conditions
Improved throttle response for finer vehicle control in technical 4WD conditions
Improved acceleration after installation of increased diameter tyres
Improved towing performance
When remapping for economy we ensure the power and available torque is from a lower rpm, therefore more available power without the need for hard acceleration to get up to your desired speed.
Take note even economy leads to power gains, just useable at a different rpm range.
