    Default tried a tuning box but it didnt work?

    A good friend of mine has a 54 prefacelift sri 150 diesel with a tuning box on from kingquick.

    it makes the car so much quicker and smoother and yet it uses less fuel.

    we have just tried it on my 06 facelift sri 150 deisel and it made absolutley no difference at all, you counldnt even tell it was fitted??

    all i got was a big puff of black smoke out of the back?

    why would this be then, i presume they are the same engine etc??

    cheers

    Default

    in the simplest terms

    the management and electrics is different on preface to facelift this is probably what is preventing the device from working

    his will have 3 buttons on the steering wheel where yours will have scrollers this is also part of the difference
