Our modifications don't come without extreme testing and validation of the calibration. Testing and validation have been done in all conditions, i.e. cold and warm weather along with low to high elevation, so the calibration is robust through all seasons and in any different environment you might drive in the world. You can drive from the ocean all the way into the mountain with complete linearity. Our climatic and altitude validation sets GDE apart from other chips/tuners because others do not account for these variations and thus warrant future problems or unwanted results in these adverse environmental conditions.
We further optimized the real world drivability by utilizing thermocouples, smoke meters, and speed sensors while driving on the highways, in urban areas and in various driving conditions and scenarios.
These validations are extremely crucial so that there are no hardware failures or other problems due to climate and/or elevation. There are many problems or unwanted results that can be found if this testing is not done, ranging from a very noisy engine, additional tailpipe smoke, or far worse, a turbo that fails because it over-speeds.
Other chips only work ideally in one driving condition and do not allow for changes in elevation or temperature. GDE accounts for this to better protect your vehicle and enjoy linear drivability.
