Frequently asked questions

What is the DragonWorks Performance Chip?

The DragonWorks Performance Chip is a performance modification for your vehicle that works through the plug and play set up safely providing you with improved vehicle performance in all areas without the need of any additional modifications or alterations.

Will I need to take it to a mechanic to install it?

Not at all, our chip is easy to install, and anyone can do it in less than a minute. No tools or experience is needed to install and use our performance chip.

Is this chip safe for my vehicle?

Yes, it is 100% safe for your vehicle. All our chips are programmed based on your specific vehicle and its capabilities and it will never perform outside your vehicle’s capabilities. This means that you will receive the maximum performance gains from your vehicle while staying in its safety zone of performance.

What does Plug and Play mean?

Our chip is 100% Plug and Play meaning that you will not need any tools or mechanical knowledge to use our performance chip and you will not need to alter any part of your vehicle in order to use it. There is no need to do wire tapping or cutting to use our chip. You simply plug it into your OBD2 port, and you are done.

How long does it take to work?

You will notice the performance gains immediately and you will continue to feel increasingly improved performance.

Will this chip void my vehicle Warranty?

No, it will not harm your vehicle warranty at all. Our performance chip uses what is known as the piggy-back system that will allow you to plug our chip in and it provide you with performance gains and then any time you need to take your vehicle in for any warranty work simply unplug it. Our chip leaves no footprint and is 100% untraceable and is guaranteed 100% Warranty Safe.

What if I add more performance parts down the line? Will the chip still work?

Yes, the chip will still work. With our patented T.R.U.E. Read/Response Adaptive Program not only will it continue to give you performance increases, but it will even further improve its original increases.

My vehicle is completely stock; will it still work?

Yes, it will. Our chips are designed to work with 100% stock vehicles as well as performance enhanced vehicles. This means it will never perform outside the vehicle’s capabilities while at the same time giving your vehicle its maximum potential.

Testing Data Results: We took a 100% stock Chrysler 300 and tested it with the performance chip, and it yielded gains of 52HP and 56 Ft. pounds of torque. Then we modified the same Chrysler 300 with a performance exhaust, cold air intake, and performance sparkplugs (this is some of the most common upgrades done) and then tested it again with the new performance parts installed and the very same vehicle yielded gains of 71HP and 73 Ft. pounds of torque.

It took the potential of the new performance parts and enhanced them to their potential as well.
The end results of our testing show that the performance gains work across both stock to performance enhanced vehicles.

Will this chip work with my modifications done?

Yes, it will. Our chips are designed to work with 100% stock vehicles as well as performance enhanced vehicles. This means it will never perform outside the vehicle’s capabilities while at the same time giving your vehicle its maximum potential.

How does a Performance Chip work?

Our Performance Chips work by sending a constant signal through your factory data port (OBD2 port) to your engine control module (ECM). This signal triggers the factory ECM to several areas of your vehicles programming including the fuel and air management as well as ignition curve and timing giving your vehicle a cleaner/stronger/and safer running motor. This piggy-back system is one of the safest and easiest performance enhancers available, leaving no trace of footprint behind. This means you will receive very noticeable gains in performance and fuel economy while maintaining your vehicles manufacturer warranty.

The performance chip is a dyno tuned fuel map tuned for your specific model vehicle changing air/fuel mixtures, timing and spark. If the vehicle is turbo or supercharged, your performance chip will also increase boost pressure.

Is this a universal module that will fit any vehicle?

No, each module is programmed to only be compatible for the vehicle it is listed for. Although some vehicles share similar parameters, each application is different based on your vehicle’s ECU. (Engine Size & Model Year).

Does it come with instructions?

Yes, it does. Each one of our performance chips will come with easy to follow installation instructions and OBD2 plug location chart that will allow for anyone even with no mechanical skills to be able to easily install our chip in less than 1 minute.

How much horsepower should I expect?

Our performance chips guarantee to provide the most gains possible without exceeding your vehicles safety zones. Our chips produce massive gains ranging in 35-45% and even higher depending on if you are running a stock vehicle or have after market parts on it as well.

How much gas will I save?

Our performance chips will provide you with some of the highest savings on fuel economy on the market and range from 5-15mpg with the average being a gain of 8mpg savings.

I have a Programmer/Tuner installed. Can they both be used together?

Yes, our products are fully stackable and compatible with other Programmers and Tuners and will in fact enhance the performance capabilities of other tuners installed.

My engine is Supercharged or Turbocharged. Can they both be used together?

Yes, our products are usually fully compatible with Supercharged or Turbocharged engines.

Is the module compatible with 2WD, 4WD and AWD vehicles?

Yes, our products are fully compatible with all 2WD and 4WD/AWD drivetrains.

I have an Automatic or Manual Transmission/Paddle Shifter. Will it still work?

Yes, our products are fully compatible for both automatic and manual transmissions as well as paddle shifters.

My vehicle has sport driving and/or eco modes, will the chip still work?

Yes, it will. We have considered the vehicles equipped with various driving modes and our chip has been designed to fully work in all mode settings and work to provide gains within each setting.
