    Default crd2 tuning box

    Hi all

    Unfortunately i have had to sell my vec 3.0 V6cdti.

    So I have for sale My crd2 Tuning box from DTUK

    It has 4 profiles including "harry" and the "sally" profiles.

    I have had it for about 9 months and it comes with the remainder of the warranty (about 2 yrs 3 months approx). I have never had any bother with the box and used it mainly because of the increase in mpg although having all that horsepower does have its advantages

    The only flaw is that i cracked the flexi glass plate the last time i changed the profile. This does not affect performance or impair box just has a crack in it

    Am looking for about £200 or best offer

    Cheers

    billy

    Registering interest!!!

    But I'm gonna have to check funds first as I've just bought a race system for the bike and the wife will go spare if I spend anymore ( she did already when the Blueflame for the bike turned up yesterday !!! ).

    Will need to check my "sneaky fund" and get back to you.

    Whats involved in fitting these?. Any increase in smoke from the exhaust under load whilst you had it fitted?. What performance figures as far as power and torque from the various profiles do you get?. Is the warranty transferable?, and lastly ( apologies for the quiz !!! ), did you see any increase in mpg as your initial post mentioned?.

    Cheers,

    Gaz.

    P.S. Whereabouts in Lanarkshire are you?. Could possibly pick up to save you posting it, I'm not far up the M80 in Bonnybridge.

    Just so ya know Gaz, not butting in here but here ya go HTH

    Takes approximately 10 minutes the first time you fit these. Remove engine cover, locate plug, unclip plug and clip wiring loom adaptor into the engine harness. Done. Put cover back on.

    Smoke wise each car is different and the CRD2 can swap between 4 maps and go up or down in 10% increments. So you can fine tune as needed.

    219bhp/359lb-s torque on a rolling road

    MPG wise it will increase when driving and cruising steadily. BUT when stomping it you will notice more if you see what I mean

    Exactly as above.

    Smoke wise there was a wee bit more when you booted it but ordinary driving no smoke at all.

    The power increase really has to be seen to be believed. Even my wife disliked driving the car when box was off. Just seems smoother.

    Fuel consumption. I averaged about 420 -450 miles to a tank but without box doing same driving i was getting no more than 320. Bearing in mind my car was an auto and i was doing about 600 miles a week the wee box has saved me a fortune.

    Warranty - Andrew at DTUK says he will transfer the remaining warranty (About 2 years 3 months ish)

    I am in Coatbridge so not far and you are welcome to have a try of the box No obligation(will even fit it for you) Pm me if you are interested. Price is negotiable as i dont have vec anymore so box is doing nothing.

    Right Billy, had a chat with my other half and managed to talk her round to the idea of buying it.

    So yeah, I'll take it. Will PM you to further discuss it.

    Cheers,

    Gaz.
