Hypertech has been a leading innovator in the automotive performance industry for over 35 years. They have stay ahead of the curve with rapid advances in technology, developing power tuning products that take advantage of the capabilities of modern electronic controls. The company's original Power Chips were designed to recalibrate early automotive computers for improved performance. Later generations of Electronic Control Units (ECU) eliminated calibration chips, storing engine tuning information in the unit's programmable memory instead. In addition to controlling basic engine functions, ECUs now monitor and govern a wide range of systems, including transmissions, brakes, instrument panels, emission controls, and heating/air conditioning.
