    Default DTUK® ECO 3 Fuel Saving System

    Hi all, I have just purchased one of DTUK's eco3 green tuning box. I should receive it by 1pm tomorrow. The RRP is £299.00, web price was £269.95 and if you use FEB50 as discount code you get it for £249.00.
    I told them that I was a paid member of VECTRA-C.COM (which I am) and managed to buy the box for £225.95 including VAT and postage.
    Hope its as easy to fit to the V6cdti as it was to my old 1.9cdti(150).

    I'd be very wary of this mate - the facelift V6 CDTi's do NOT like being tuned in any way and at least one member had their fuel pump go within 30 miles of having it done. That's 3 grand's worth of work...

    As already said... the facelift (euro4) v6cdti's do not like tuning boxes very much

    They cause problems on other cars too. They make your fuel computer over-read, giving you the impression that instantly you are getting more mpg. It was also more than a coincidence that my DMF packed in while the box was fitted.

    The 1.9's have been proven for years to be more than capable of handling around 200bhp and more if pushed, but obviously with reduced longevity of the engine the higher you go.

    The V6 is a completely different kettle of fish and the fuel pump simply can't handle it...
