    Default Performance Chip

    Seriously thinking of dyno tuning and fitting a performance chip on my Cherokee 3.7L (2006) Thinking of giving Unlimited Auto (Cape Town) the job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Looking for performance and better consumption (double whammy)

    Well, I can tell you now that my 3.7 came alive after the chip. I did the exhaust, Unichip and KnN filter. My Jeep sort of sounds like a skyline crossed with an E46 M3, but not too bad on the open road. I innitially had muds on and the car went pretty good and consumption dropped from 18l to 14l a 100. I just swapped over to AT's and my consumption dropped to 9.5-10l/100km at 110kph! It also feels wayyyy more responsive.

    Only downsides are that my car came back with a ton of error codes and its taking a bit of time to resolve. The workmanship on the powerflow freeflow (R3800) is also horrible. I could probably weld better with my eyes closed (and I dont even know how to use a welder)


    If I could get rid of the codes, I would be over the moon.

    My power went from 132kw to 145kw and 270nm to 300nm with the muds (which I believe robbed me some power)

    If you looking for more power, remove all the cats and do the exhaust. Also dont forget about the KnN airfilter.
