Chips and remaps for NP300?

I had a cheap and cheerful tuning chip in my old D40 but it made a huge difference to performance and even fuel efficiency. I've since found out that the cheap ones usually just use resistors to alter the data going into the ECU so it's not very accurate or necessarily within safe-zones.

I've been searching for remaps since before I got my NP300 but never found any places that do them, even now I struggle to find them.

I've since decided it's probably not great to go with a remap as it could be found when going in for a service or whatever. If I get a chip, however, I just unplug it when it goes in and plug it back in when I get it back.
Would you guys agree with this?



Next question is what sort of chip do I get? I could go with a cheap one again, but I don't want to ruin the engine with something cheap. If I expend a little more cash, what would you guys recommend? I've found a couple of chips available in the UK, linked below. Please advise on which one you'd recommend, whether it's one of these or another - or if I should go with a remap.

The Bluespark one also offers cheaper chips - worth spending the extra?


I read on another thread about a couple of people being guinea pigs for a new chip someone was making but that thread was about a year old and nothing had been added since.

I don't agree with discounting the remap. A remap will be tailored to the vehicle and give better performance or economy depending on what you specify.
A chip increases the fueling pretty crudely.
The only way a remap can be found is that the ecu records the number of times it has been reflashed. It does not indicate that a remap has taken place.

Interesting. I would assume that there will be edited numbers with the remap that would be visible to anyone checking them. I would also assume that it's only if they look for the specific figures that get changed that they would know.

Either way, if you think I should go with a remap, who would you advise in the UK?
I am in the south-east of England but I often travel up and down the entire country so regularly have the chance to go pretty much anywhere from the south-east up to the highlands and islands of Scotland - not that there's likely to be a garage up there to do a remap.

I tried Quantum Tuning but they don't deal with the 2.3 twin-turbo engine (yet).

I have the tuning boxes from DTE on my D40, at the time the remap was a bit of a gamble and more expensive than the tuning boxes. However the tuning companies have cracked the Navara's system and seem to be able to offer a far more reliable, undetectable set up that offers real improvements in not only performance but economy as well. The consensus with the DTE system is that they're great for performance but not so clever for improving consumption.

My next vehicle will get a remap.

This company has had good reviews here although they are for the older D22 and D40.

There is a previous sponsor who is a Nissan specialist down in Kent, they night be able to recommend a tuning company,

I wouldn't go for a cheap chip again.Tried that, got a few limp modes and took it off.Check the REVO, if its offered in your area.They are doing remaps for years with excellent results and they have this system that you can select the stock ecu setup or the remapped one on the go thru a switch in the cab.

Tried Celtictuning and they said that the NP300s haven't got systems to read the chips/data yet so we have to wait until they're done before remaps will be available.

Tried Kaizermotors and the bloke didn't sound very helpful, but said that he's not heard of any remaps on the NP300.

Revo look like they'd be rather expensive, but couldn't find anything for Nissan available and the dealer locator doesn't work on my phone so I'll have to check when I get home but that'll be too late to call them.

Thanks for the advice, guys. Looks like a chip will be the only way to get more from the engine for now. We'll just have to keep an eye out for places to start providing NP300 remaps.

Those are some pretty impressive claims...
ProDieselChip for NP300

If I can get that much of an improvement for 125 then I'm in. But that looks too good to be true to me.

Anyone know if that's just a pass-through cable or if this chip actually reads sensors and so on?

So fitted pro diesel chip tonight, 16 settings, gradually increasing, feels more powerful and spirited, will have to see re consumption.....
