How Performance Chips Work for Mitsubishis
When you plug a Chip Your Car performance chip into your OBD2 port, the unit works with your ECU to remap fuel and adjust timing settings.Depending on what level you choose, you could see anywhere from a 20-60 horsepower increase. Even better, you will also increase your gas mileage by 4-6 MPG.
To install the performance chip, start your vehicle. Plug the chip into the OBD2 port located near the lower part of the dash. After about 15 seconds, the chip should have completed the connection. Then, press and hold the SYNC/RESET button for a full 15 seconds. In a cumulative 150 miles of driving afterwards, the chip should complete the fuel remapping. The installation is complete.
The Mitsubishi Brand Makes and Models
Mitsubishi began as a shipping company in Japan in 1870. Founded by Iwasaki Yataro, Mitsubishi produced their first car in 1917, called the Model-A. The brand first introduced electric vehicle technology in 1970 and a year later broke into the American market. Some of the first models include the Tredia, Cordia, and Starion. Mitsubishi has not forgotten its electric history, however, as it strives towards an electric vehicle lineup in the future.
Below are just a few models that accept your brand-new Mitsubishi performance chip.
2001 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI
Pairing the Evo with their famous Lancer rally car brand and specs, the Lancer Evo dropped on an unsuspecting public in 2001. The Lancer EVO VI was the seventh iteration of their EVO brand and carries on the tradition in today’s market.
2015 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X FQ-440 MR
This was the last Lancer EVO sold by Mitsubishi, and they pulled out all the stops with design and function. The Lancer EVO X FQ-440 MR only had a run of 40 cars in production, making it one of the rarest and most sought-after Mitsubishi’s around.
The Diamante had a long and fruitful life as Mitsubishi’s entry into the high-end sedan market. The Diamante won two Japanese Car of the Year Awards in the 1980s and 1990s. The Diamante finally ended its’ long production run in 2005.
Mitsubishi Gallant VR-4
In many ways, the Gallant was the precursor to the Evo which Mitsubishi released later on. The Gallant won the Japanese Car of the Year award in its’ first year in production in 1988. The VR-4 variant brought a turbocharged 195 hp and all-wheel drive to the party, but good things never last forever as the Gallant ended its production run in 2002.
The Eclipse debuted back in 1989 not long after the AMC acquisition by Chrysler. The Eclipse came about through an agreement with Chrysler as the Eclipse would be branded as the Eagle Talon and Plymouth Laser in certain markets. The Eclipse was the first car embraced by the tuning community and lasted through four iterations, finally ending its long production run in 2012.
