    Default can anyone recommend.....

    me a tuning box/chip
    needs to be fairly cheap
    been looking on the bay and there all the same spec for around £90 so has anyone had a cheap one from there and think they were any good?
    dtuk seem to have some good specs on theres but there not cheap and i aint got loads to throw at it, my 1st gear is dangerously slow but the rest is good apart from the puddle lag

    thanks in advance

    roverron synergie tuning box. They are brilliant and are designed for the engine.
    The Vec 1.9 CDTI 150 was dyno'ed at 198bhp.
    They are £160 but you get what you pay for and it is cheap considering what you get.
    Mondeo TDCI drivers swear by them and get better reults than a bluefin remap which is nearly £400.
    I had one on my old Mondeo and it was brilliant. 1000% recomended. The best thing other than a custom remap.
    Dont skimp on what you pay and end up with a smokey car.

    Here is a link and read the feedback for yourself. They are exactly as advertised.

    Our sister companies Vauxhall Vectra 1.9cdti.

    Our 177k mile '54 reg Vectra sri 150bhp CDTi is phenomenal, not only in the massive torque but in the way it just keeps on pulling way past 4500rpm. Other diesels like the BMW engined Rover75/MG ZT & Mondeo /Jaguar's X-Type tend to tail off over 3500rpm but not this Fiat engine. It has been dyno'd at 180bhp but that was in the early days.... Recently I did measure a 30-50mph in 4th gear time of 4.1 secs! More figures to come.

    STOP PRESS

    We've recently had fantastic results on a Vauxhall 1.9cdti 150. (2007 / '57 Astra), with an estimated 200bhp. Blows away Skoda Fabia VRS 170s! A Vectra was measured on the dyno at 198bhp, beating others with another make of tuning box fitted.

    A Signum 1.9cdti 150 does 8mpg per gallon more with a Synergy 1.

    The maps on them are tuned to the engine. They are not a one for all diesels type of box.
    Its basically a remap in a box.
    You will put more stress on the engine and transmition components with anything that gives more power and torque.
    Roverron tuning box's are engine specific and are tested on the cars stated so they wont give clouds of black smoke and give potential injector issues.
    If you want to see some unbiased and genuine reviews have a look on STdriver.com and look at the TDCI tuning section to see what other people who have them have said. Roverron is a god to Mondeo and Rover Diesel drivers. There is nothing that gets close for the money.
