Unichip Launches U-connect for Nissan Navara

The Spanish built Nissan Navara pick-up, currently powered by a four cylinder 2.5-litre DCi powerplant developing 171 bhp, is now receiving Unichip Europe’s latest U-Connect plug and play Uni-Q ECU fitment that offers a significant performance upgrade at an affordable price.

The result of extensive road and dyno testing, the Uni-Q ECU is designed as a DIY fitment via its plug and play ‘U-Connect’ wiring loom, allowing fitment (and removal) in minutes. According to the manufacturer, it leaves no electronic footprint and is ‘invisible’ to Nissan's main dealers during servicing.

Once installed, the performance figures produced by the Uni-Q are increased by 29 bhp to a maximum of 200 bhp at 4300 rpm. Meanwhile, torque rises by 25 lb.ft (34 Nm) to a measured maximum of 265 lb.ft. (360 Nm).

"On the road the Unichip enhanced Nissan Navara feels sharper, livelier and more eager, responding well from very low revs, enabling swift and safe towing, overtaking and fast road driving,"
a company statement reads.

“Despite the extra performance, Nissan Navara 2.5 DCi owners will be pleased that the Uni-Q’s extra performance doesn’t detract from the car’s 29 mpg combined fuel economy. Tests have proven that thanks to a combination of the increased low speed torque and efficiencies realised by the refined Unichip Uni-Q ECU map, fuel economy is unaffected by the Unichip U-Connect package, with drivers actually reporting a 5-10% better fuel consumption compared to standard,” the statement continues.

Available now directly from Unichip Europe, priced at GBP398.78 excluding VAT, the Unichip U-Connect suits the six speed manual transmission variant of the 2.5-litre DCi Nissan Navara produced from 2005 until spring 2010.
