    Default 2006 Hyundai Terracan 2.9 CRDI power specification for race chip

    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to know how I can tell if my Terracan is the 110kw 2.9 CRDI or the 120kw 2.9 CRDI motor.
    It is registered in 2006. So it is either a 2005 or 2006 model.
    I would like to buy the race chip, but it seems there are different chips depending on the model or the power output.

    Also is it worthwhile to install the race chip? I believe one would definitely notice a big difference going from 340nm to 410nm.

    AFAIK the local 2.9 engines were down tuned for our diesel fuel. Down under they got the more powerful model.

    Thanks,

    I have purchased the race chip and will install it into my vehicle this weekend.
    The supplier told me that it does not matter at what power the motor is rated, the programming stays the same.

    I assume it's installed by now.
    Do you have a report back for us?

    Yes, I have installed the chip.
    It makes a big difference. The engine is a lot more responsive and truly pulls with a lot more oomph.
    I have also noticed slight improvement on my fuel usage, although I have not yet had the chip long enough for a full tank of diesel to properly measure the consumption.
    But, where I got 670km on a tank before I am now standing on 685km and the light has just come on. I will be able to do a proper comparison on the next fill up.

    Racechip gave me a free upgrade to the racechip two as the racechip one i received was sent with the wrong harness.
    Cant complain about that. So i got an extra 5% increase on top of the 20% for free

    Looking forward to taking the Terracan off road again to use those extra HP I got.
    5th gear doing a 100 km/h, put the foot down and it builds up speed with a lot more confidence than before.
    Idling in third gear it pulls without me touching the accelerator and it does not stall.

    Hi Jackals
    Do you have any more feedback on the Racechip fitted to your Tcan back then? I'm thinking of fitting one to our TCan...
