R320 CDI 3.0 V6 - MY2006

Does Powerchip offer an upgrade for my R320CDi?
The R320CDi marks a new generation of luxury German vehicles; and it sets the bar high.

Powerchip has released a excellent upgrade for the R-Class, improving both power and torque by an incredible 18%. After weeks of R&D on the new R-Class software, Powerchip was able to deliver a smoother rush of power and torque from the V6.

The new R320CDi provides a level of ride and handling that parallels sedans. With a Powerchip Gold upgrade, it has the performance to compliment the R320CDi's chassis in the way it deserves.
How does Powerchip upgrade my R320CDi?
Powerchip's technicians upload the Mercedes-Benz with Powerchip software directly through the diagnostic port; rather than modifying the ECU physically.

The Powerchip Gold upgrade takes very little time, and does not even need the bonnet to be opened. This means that physically nothing changes on your Mercedes-Benz, and your time is kept to a minimum.

If you are in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, or Perth, you can have your R320CDi upgraded with Powerchip technology tomorrow, while you wait!
Does the Powerchip upgrade improve the performance of my R320CDi?
The Technicians of Powerchip's R&D Department got a nice surprise that exceeded their own expectations for the car.

The Powerchip Gold upgrade for the V6 common-rail diesel not only increases power right throughout the rev range, but continues the power band right up to redline. Completely transforming the car, the Mercedes-Benz was upgraded with Powerchip software via the diagnostic port.

The Powerchip Gold upgrade consists of flashing the car with upgraded software, extracting an extra 29kw of power and a mammoth 91nm of torque from the V6.

This transfers to real-world performance on the road. Delivering a huge rush of power and torque eagerly, the Powerchip upgrade extracted 55kw at all wheels in the low to mid range, creating a very noticable difference from standard specification!
Is the Powerchip safe for my Mercedes-Benz?
Absolutely. In the past, chip upgrades have required the physical chip to be desoldered from the ECU board, programmed, then soldered back into the ECU.

The Powerchip upgrade for the R320CDi is programmed directly via the diagnostic port, located under the steering wheel.

This means there is no physical modification done to the car, as the Powerchip is purely software. Obviously, this is far safer for the vehicle.

Another advantage is the vehicle can be returned to standard at any time. As Powerchip holds all standard files on our database, if a vehicle ever needed to be 'flashed' back to stock, it would be as quick, simple, and easy as the original upgrade.
Just nowhere near as fun!
What will the Powerchip software change?
Powerchip invests a significant amount of time and money into developing our upgrades, and the Powerchip Gold for the R320CDi is no exception.

A specific emphasis is placed on road development. Powerchip prides itself on creating performance upgrades that make real-world differences, not just squiggly lines on a dyno. Part throttle improvements are where the biggest increases are made and noticed, as this is where 90% of people actually drive their cars.

A great deal of care is taken when upgrading diesel engines. Powerchip ensures a fine balance between injector timing and duration, turbo boost, and torque limits to ensure that throttle response, drivability, and longevity are not compromised.
