    Exclamation Please help me!Which tuning box?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a 55 Reg Vectra 1.9 CDTi (120) and I have been looking into boosting its Bhp`s (my previous 55 Reg Vectra 1.9 CDTi was 150Bhp and I do miss those extra 30 ).

    I have found three tuning boxes on ebay and read up about them but I just don`t know which one would be the best for my car or which one is the best of them three. If there is anyone that could have a look at the following links for me please and give me some advise and opinion, that would be very much appreciated

    I am open to suggestions if you can think of any other brands

    Many thanks,

    Kristy

    TBh buy the best box you can afford, if you buy a cheap one you will only regret it, Alot of people have had good results with DTUK boxes

    Thanks, I have just looked on their website and have found three that would be for my car and now I`m confused as I don`t know which would be the right one, or best one of them. Could you please have a look at this link for me, thanks

    If you want more gain then 150, why not try a regal autosport remap. They're expensive at £565 inc VAT but takes it up to 195bhp. Mind you, it only works if you have a 16v, not an 8v. Hope this helps.

    For the best results ignore a box and get a good remap, ideally from a tuner with experience with these engines and a rolling road to test and develop the map on. Usually cheaper than a box as well.

    Of course if you buy a box then you can remove it and sell it or move it onto a new car when you decide.

    Try doing that with a re-map

    I take it you sell remaps lol...

    Do you write your own files & do you have dyno graphs to look at
