The History of Unichip Australia and Dynomotive
We have been Authorised Unichip agents from the introduction of Unichip into the Australian Market back in 1993, Mark Trounson the owner of Dynomotive has been tuning the Unichip product for well over 20 years and has a great deal of knowledge on the tuning application of the product.
Some history below, the Unichip product was originally supplied to Australia from the original distributor Air Power Systems, leading the research and design for the Unichip application was Rob Rapisarda who was employed by Air power systems for 18 years, Rob has a number of motor racing achievements under his belt and well over 30 years of dyno tuning experience, he is arguably one of the top dyno tuners in the country. When the Unichip Version Q was being designed back in 2005 Rob was asked by Dastek (The South African Creators of Unichip) for a “wish list” of tuning applications that can be applied to the New Unichip software. Together Dastek and Rob created the new Unichip Q software and tunability we see today from the Unichip products. From Unichip Q to the new Unichip Uni-x ECU!
Dynomotive was lucky enough to take over the Unichip distributorship back in 2011, since that date Rob has continued his automotive career in dyno tuning and Unichip by moving to Dynomotive as the head Dyno tuner. However the Unichip R&D has not stopped there with the steady growth of the Turbo Diesel Market, Rob and Paul Trounson (Unichip Sales Support) noticed that there was a gap that could be filled by the Unichip Uni-x ECU and the ability to get “plug and play” harness’s custom made for the Australian market. The biggest yet is the 200/70 series Toyota Landcruiser plug and play unit, utilising the UnichipUni-x ECU and 2 x Unichip D4D drivers otherwise known as Unichip injector drivers. (The D4D drivers were also a collaborative effort created with the input of Rob’s technical knowledge.)
This is just some of the examples of how Unichip Australia has been involved since the beginning and at the forefront of the Unichip design and development. Don’t comprise you experience or your vehicle with people claiming to be Unichip agents who are not on our dealer list. The leaders in Unichip tuning in this country are all authorised and available to supply, fit and tune the Unichip product so you can drive away with confidence
