Find Your Vehicle
Release the true power, economy and driveability of your Volvo Penta - safely, easily and in minutes with a CHIP Express™ plug-in upgrade!
After figures show the power your vehicle will produce on the supplied settings. Max figures show the power your vehicle could produce on a higher setting. More Information
All chips come pre-set for optimal power and economy so adjustment is not necessary: you can simply plug-in and enjoy! Not all vehicles will achieve Max figures when on a higher setting, most standard vehicles will achieve a power between After and Max figures. To fine-tune your system simply press the HIGH or LOW buttons on the keypad to make small incremental adjustments above or below the supplied setting, easy to do and fully explained in instructions supplied.

Achieve a guaranteed increase in performance from a name synonymous with digital diesel tuning systems – CHIP Express™.
Unlike "generic" diesel tuning systems, this advanced, self fit chip will be programmed specifically to optimise your Volvo Penta D6 280 Marine. And because it works in conjunction with your on-board computer rather than altering it, all engine safety functions remain operational. What's more, the system can be easily unplugged, leaving no trace of fitment, returning your vehicle to factory standard at any time.
The CHIP Express™ system simply plugs in using connectors which are identical to those originally fitted by the manufacturer - there are no wires to cut, just follow the supplied photo-instructions for your specific engine and you'll have the job done in minutes. Once installed, you will immediately feel the difference. Your vessel will no longer struggle to get on plane quickly as your prop will spin up faster for better acceleration, allowing you to enjoy higher RPMs and cruising speeds - where not electronically limited. Increased power and torque provide greater manoeuvrability, especially when loaded with passengers, fuel, and gear. Performance gains also mean that less throttle needs to be applied for any given speed; as a result fuel economy and range are improved. Remember while most tuning companies aim to provide maximum power our aim is to transform your marine engines flexibility, providing a wider spread of usable performance where you need it most!
By making your engine significantly more fuel-efficient, the CHIP Express™ digital tuning system means you can achieve substantially better economy from your 280 Marine too. You'll drive on a smaller throttle opening for a given speed and change gear less, getting you further on a tank of diesel!
* Typical economy results between 8-16% yet can produce up to 20% depending on engine tolerances, driving style and conditions. CHIP Express™ diesel tuning chips may also increase the maximum speed of your vehicle by up to 5%; applies to non speed limited vehicles only.
Vehicle manufacturers are forced to compromise when they set up the engine's ECU, to create vehicles which will operate in a wide variety of markets and conditions.
To meet all these different needs, they re-program the vehicle's ECU to change the engine requirements. Now, thanks to CHIP Express™ class-leading, state of the art solutions, you can benefit from greater low-down torque for improved pulling power, higher output for better out-and-out performance, and better fuel economy!
Antonio from Caribbean Waters with a Volvo Penta D6 435 Marine said:We installed the chip on our Tiara Sovran 43 boat with twin 2011 D6-435 engines. Although mechanically perfect with a clean hull the boat was not planning in the Caribbean waters, maybe because the warmer water is less dense? Either way with the chips the boat now planes very quickly, top speed has risen by 2-3 knots and fuel consumption has fallen when cruising at 27 knots / 3100rpm by one gallon/hr per engine.
Bill from St Peter, Jersey with a Volvo Penta D6 370 Marine (Twin Engine) said:I had the engineers fit the chips. Revs are up from 3250 to 3500 and top speed from 42 to 44 knots. Engines are running smoothly. Thanks again.
“Your customer service, speed at which you deal with questions and chip (most importantly) are second to none. This is the 3rd variation of the chip that I have run, not only do I see the fuel savings made each and every time I fill up but I also feel the changes in the increased performance too. Far too often people only feel the need to leave negative feedback on a product, it's very rare that people take the time to leave positive comments however on this occasion I feel compelled to do so. A brilliant product and one that I highly recommend should you want to make the most of your cars potential performance and make a fuel saving to add into the bargain. What's not to like?! It's been a pleasure dealing with the team at Chip Express, I just wish everyone I dealt with in life was this professional! Thank you.”

“May I congratulate you on this diesel tuning product as it has made a noticeable difference to my Land Rover Discovery. I have tried other diesel tuning boxes for my previous vehicles (Kia Sorento, Peugeot 206 and Vauxhall Vectra)... and they all produced slight engine stuttering under certain load conditions. The CHIP Express system does not show any evidence of this and is equal to the likes of an ECU remap (which I have also had done before) for smoothness and noticeable power gains. This would be the only diesel tuning product I would recommend.”

“I was a sceptic at first, then after reading the experiences others had been through I decided to give it a go. I bought a new 1.7 CRDI Sportage, not the 2ltr purely for better fuel figures. Whilst this engine pulls very well in standard form, and was returning 44-45mpg even during the first 500 miles I had to go down the CHIP Express route. Well, there is absolutely no point in forking out the extra 2 grand for the 2 litre model when you can get the 1.7 and spend much less to get 2 litre power figures. Excuse the cliché’s, but this car is transformed and by a big margin too. From what I can remember about my 2 litre test drive, my 1.7 now pulls better than the 2 litre version. The low-down grunt is remarkable and pulls like the proverbial train. Fitting took minutes and was effortless, the box was kept on factory settings, I feel there is no need to mess with it. Needless to say I am now a very happy boy and would without question take this route again. I would recommend this to any diesel Sportage owner. Many, many thanks for a remarkable product and a customer service that is rare in this country!”

“Many thanks for your fantastic service! Unit ordered Sunday, delivered Tuesday am!! Unit now fitted and, as promised, the car is transformed. Winding country lanes tackled quite happily in fifth gear. Cruising on much smaller throttle openings and immediate response on acceleration. The car behaves as a mini car should behave. I had some initial doubts about spending quite a large amount of money on this item but it is worth every penny and would not hesitate to advise anyone to do similar.”

“A good product and a good service deserves recognition: I fitted a CHIP Express unit to my Insignia. What an amazing bit of kit! My fuel economy and performance went way up and with the mileage I do was a Godsend! On a run to Aberdeen from Hull I returned an average of 62 MPG and I drive quite energetically! I've just taken up the trade in offer and saved a few quid on a new system. The Vauxhall has now gone with 125,000 trouble free miles and I have changed car to a Volvo S60 D3. I'm looking forward to fitting the Chip Express unit and reaping the rewards, thanks guys!”

“Be assured, this is NO gimmick. Arrived yesterday (less then 24 hours after the order was placed) and fitted today. The fitting was easy especially with the photos and instructions sent with the chip. The first thing I noticed was the responsiveness of the engine from a standing start, no more lag. I then went on a 30 minute drive both motorway and sideroads and my average fuel consumption went UP from 33.3mpg to 38.7mpg. My motorway speed varied from 60 to 85mph and the sideroads from zero to 40mph. I am so pleased with the whole result. This is worth every single penny paid. Thank you!”
