Anyone heard about this "Unichip"? Is it the same as ECU upgrading?

I'm using it. Its a piggy back. addon to ur existing Ori ECU so that they can tune ur Air/fuel ratio. But after some time our stupid ECU will detect that it has been altered, than check light will come out, but its still good and working fine.

well, to me that is kinda of risky because i have no accurate sign of others sensor failure warning.

the check-light on could be caused by closed loop circuit detection, where the stock ECU trying to retaliate, where the same thing happened to Gen2 cars members of mine who put UNICHIP into the car. what it needs is the proper lambda tap that will 95% work with the piggyback.

You are right, changing the lambda sensor, will solved the problems.

As for accurate sign of failuer warning, Gauges will be added to tolerate it. like oil press, fuel press, a/f ratio, oil temp, water temp and vacuum meters.

prolonged use of a car with the Engine Check Light on is bad as it will cause more carbon build up. When the Engine Check light comes on the engine will retard itself and put in more fuel. this unburnt fuel will turn into carbon.
