- Up to 30% increase in power & torque (vehicle dependent)
- More torque from as low as 1200rpm
- Improved economy: up to 15% fuel saving
- Less gear changing, 5th gear becomes more useable
- Reduced turbo lag
- Quicker safer overtaking
- Easy to adjust
Todays diesel engines have many sensors which are controlled by the vehicles ECU these signals are processed many thousands of times in one second to maintain that the vehicle is running at its optimum efficiency and keeping the emissions and economy at acceptable levels.
The idea behind the tuning box is to intercept the signal between the ECU and the injection system usally the common rail and basically allows it to inject more fuel into the cylinders thus producing more torque and power, and because of this the engine is running more efficiently the fuel consumption is also improved because you would have to use less throttle for similar conditions.
only suitable for new generation common rail fuel injection systems. These are fitted to the majority of diesel engine from 1999/2000. Usually your car's model designation will tell you if it is common rail. Tdci, Dci, CDT, CDTi, CRDi, CDi, I-CDTi and ETC. the C usually means it has common rail engine.
