Ron, I have one too and have been asking the same question. Did you have an upgrade from Nissan? Seems they only gave it to those that had flywheel problems. have you had any major problems with your 2.8 as mine is about to come out of warranty and I would like to fix any problems.

I was about to sell mine when a freind who has one with a chip upgrade asked me to drive it and what a difference it makes. There is a little lag from 800 to1000 rpm before it takes off and oh what a feeling. The turbo wastes out about 3500 to 4000rpm but there is no need to push it that hard. He tells me his fuel consumption has gone from about 7.5 to 10 klm to the lt. I have mine booked in at berrima for the up grade, they dont use unicip but a better brand THEY SAY. If it does not work in mine its fully removable and i will sell the car with out it.
My car has had several mods. to fix all sorts of things suggest you get an nrma insp. done before it runs out.

Hi Ron,
No personal experience on Nissan but the result on my Discovery was remarkable. Significantly more power and much better fuel economy as well. I know someone with a Uni in the 2.8 Diesel turbo Nissan and accoding to them it is a much smoother engine now with almost no turbo lag. Again they report nice increase in power but appears to have made no difference here to economy (probably the way they are driving it!).

Hi again Ron,
As with most things the skill of the installer will make a big difference with the Unichip. Safari dealers share info. on installs but every car is different. Try and get an installer who really knows EFI systems well.

Hi,

A Brisbane specialist, Motsons, has developed its own version of a unichip for these motors and (according to a friend of mine) they work an absolute treat. You can go for a major power boost or you can go for a good power boost (I think it is 30%+) which also improves the bottom end response. Andy now is able to tackle slow trails comfortablly, something he couldnt do before he had the chip fitted due to the bloody awful surging.

Give them a call.

Joe
