The 3.0-litre TDV6 diesel engine is for those Range Rover buyers who care more about fuel economy than power. Now Unichip is offering a clean, fast and affordable way to boost it up a bit.

The new ‘U-connect’ plug and play for easy DIY installation ECU kit from the British electronics masters offers an extra 22 bhp and 23 lb.ft of torque and can be fitted to all Range Rover 3.0-litre TDV6 models from September 2009.

The TDV6 has 259 bhp and 502 lb.ft of torque in its standard form. With Unichip’s Uni-Q kit the output goes up to 281 bhp at 3031 rpm and 525 lb.ft at just 2241 rpm. It results in enhanced low speed pulling ability for towing, caravanning, off-road performance and overtaking. Unichip says that despite the extra power, TDV6’s 30 mpg fuel economy remains intact.

Pricing for this kit is set at a reasonable £423.

Unlike an OBD ‘flash’ remap the Uni-Q leaves no electronic footprint. It is ‘invisible’ to Land Rover / Range Rover main dealers and cannot be detected or overwritten during servicing. To ensure it is totally tamperproof, the Unichip can only be remapped by one of Unichip Europe’s 35 UK dealers. If, at a future stage, owners add mechanical modifications, the Uni-Q can be remapped to suit, or at a later stage, the unit can be removed from the vehicle and sold on, unlike an OBD reflash.
