Has anyone used them?

I found an ebay ad where they are selling a plug and play chip that takes the SQ5 from 230kw to 281kw and 650nm to 754nm. I don't know how they come up with the odd numbers but hey, what ever

Well priced in comparison to some of the other offerings at $739. This is for the version that adjust fuel and boost

They also have another version that does fuel only for $539

just remember folks if they plug into the fuel rail pressure sensor (as nearly all do) they simply alter this signal tricking the ecu into adding more fuel... usually in a linear fashion across the entire rev range for the cheaper ones...

I had my 2010 Q5 3.0 TDI reflashed with Oettinger . Big improvement in forward thrust, still gets good mileage if you want. Wouldn't go the add on route.

Not available for the Oz SQ5 and apparently unlikely to ever be.

It's like expecting cheap tyres to perform like Pirelli...$500 tuning boxes?

there are cheaper tyres out there that perform better than Pirelli's lol

and your delirious if you think that high prices ensure quality. I have seen some big dollar tunes that my grand mother could have done

in my opinion i can understand the theory behind the diesel tuning boxes and how they work... i cant see it causing long term damage if its not too overboard...

however i myself will be waiting until a tried and tested tuner in our market (ie APR, GIAC etc etc ) to come out with a tune...

but they better pull their fingers out cause this engine has been out for a few years now with nothing on the market.....

That bird might be optimistic.
The Oz encryption is the issue.
Further, it won't be APR as it is a diesel it will be an Oettinger tune and will cost in the order of $3000 for an ECU reflash.

I don't believe I referenced a direct correlation to "price equals quality"...but perception is reality and if that's how you interpreted my point then continue to indulge in your own rhetoric.

He/she (ido09s) just likes to be in possession of an alternative, albeit typically sarcastic, opinion irrespective of being right/wrong...or so I am observing of late.

Hey folks let's cool it a little.
Each to their own.
Even without additional tuning by whomever, the SQ5 is a darn good engine. :kiss_rings:

Lol

but in honesty Peach the Q5, and moreso SQ5, is a very practical family car... spaciaous, luxury, just enough power for regular driving, and boatloads of torque for hauling everyone incl baggage around

I think its in a perfectly situated niche market

Back on topic.
I wonder if it is truly an encryption issue for the Oettinger flash as the European models appear to be able to accessed for an Oettinger flash.

Yes but not I.
Effective, rather expensive and certainly not a quick on and off job.

Now then - I am assuming you own an SQ5 not a straight vanilla Q5.
That being the case, no you are not chipping with Revo as it is an OBDI port system.
You are undertaking a refresh of your ECU software = warranty issues as it will set a flag in your software which can be tracked by your dealership.
Secondly, at this stage no one has managed to crack the encryption of the Australian SQ5 ECU software so I imagine this is a European solution which appears unlikely to work.
Thus I think that chip tuning as it is referred to is your only option and means a piggyback unit like Kraftwerk - take a look.
Evidently the results are quite impressive and the risks low and no ECU flags.
If the encryption is ever cracked then from last experience I unreservedly commend Oettinger to you - expensive but totally competent.

Yes I own a SQ5 now :)
I didn't know that they are different (OBDI port system vs chipping).
I'll have a look further.

Anyone heard of or used "dpchip"?
I have a Q7 on loan from a main dealer (as a test drive) that has a dpchip box fitted under the left side of the engine cover. I've never heard of them till today.
Should the dealer remove this before the car is on sold?
Thanks

So far no news yet on BIturbo Tuning? i've been searching but not much reviewing on them! Got a A6 3.0 TDI Bi turbo. it goes like a rocket but I still think too much turbo lag from standstill.

Hi guys,

Looks like another thread revival - not bad for my first time posting on ozaudi!

First off I'd like to say a big hello, been reading up on the forum and finally subscribed due to a recent SQ5 purchase.

Now to the topic - Has there been any updates regarding tuning for the SQ5??? I have tried doing a fair bit of research and have obtained some pricing from certain local tuners (in Melbourne) however I would like the opinions of those who have had first hand experiences in diesel tuning - preferably fellow SQ5 owners.

Warranty concerns have gone out the window as the car no longer has warranty on it (2013 MY14) however my preference is a OBD tune as opposed to a "piggy back" system.

One big concern however is the torque limit of the 8 speed tiptronic - can't seem to find concrete info on the limit of this gearbox (some say 700-750Nm some say 800-900Nm) so I'm concerned with tune outputs of 700Nm+.

Looking forward to get your views on the matter.

Cheers.

I agree with kaitan thus my first post.

No problem buddy.

I have research and the A6 ti bi turbo is the same engine as SQ5.

A highly reputable tuner in Sydney City performance uses flash tune McChip from Germany I think. The figures quoted are a lot 40kw and 96nm increase. But it doesn't come with a cheap price $1860 Quoted.

I'm still doing research on Racechip, APR, Revo but research seems to have gone no where.

Thanks

So far I have been unsuccessful in obtaining any info regarding APR. A REVO tune is just under $1,000 and yields between 252-260kW (stock 230kW) and 750-800Nm (stock 650Nm). I was told by the same tuner that an ABT tune would yield similar gains but with a price tag in excess of $3k.

which company that is doing that ??? I know redo is the tuner but from which shop?

Under 1k!! thats pretty good deal !! what if both of us get done together :D would it be even cheaper? Would that be a dyne before and after results to justify the claims?

The company is Active Motorwerke - they are based in Melbourne though. Not sure about the dyno runs however considering it's a REVO tune I doubt that would be included unless you paid for it.

Anyone with thoughts about Oettinger? Output of around 280kW and 760Nm.

Now I'm not sure if I should go down the path of flash tune or piggyback system.

Well the latest with regards to APR is apparently they don't have a tune for the diesel variant of the SQ5.

Hi shterk, if you are still looking for tuning options for your SQ5, we offer a full reprogram of the factory ECU.


Gains are +35kw and +90nm. Feel free to give us a call or speak to one of our Victorian dealers for pricing and information.

Jon, I would be interested in tuning options if you have a distributor is Sydney.
