The Range Rover Sport has been subjected to countless tuning upgrades and aftermarket companies seem to have taken great joy in continuing this plight. The latest tuning company to take a stab at upgrading the luxury British SUV is Unichip, which recently released their latest ECU upgrade for the 3.0-liter TDV6 version of the Range Rover Sport.
As part of their program, Unichip’s new ‘U-connect’ and Uni-Q piggy back ECU remapping allows the Range Rover Sport’s engine to have a substantial turbo boost, resulting in the spike in engine output. After running a series of dyno tests with Range Rover Sport’s newly remapped ECU, it was determined that the SUV saw an increase in overall power, from the standard 260 horsepower all the way up to 281 horsepower at 3,031 RPM and 525 lb/ft of torque at 2,241 RPM. Despite the added power on the SUV, its combined 30 mpg fuel economy rating remains largely unaffected, thanks to the increased low speed torque and the refined ECU remapping.
All told, Unichip’s ECU upgrade for the Range Rover Sport comes at a cost of £423.15, which is about $683.57 based on current exchange rates. It’s a small price to pay for a mighty impressive re-tweaking of the Range Rover Sport’s engine.
