    Default DTUK tuning box issue!

    Evenin all, wondered if someone could help me. I bought a DTUK box for my 2.0dti vectra last week and was amazed by the extra performance I got from it.

    However I've noticed that in 4th or 5th gear if I put my foot down there is a strange rumble comin from somewhere. It goes away after about 60-70 though and doesn't happen if I bring it up to speed gradually.

    Anyone had similar problems or got an idea of what it could be? Would it be worth removing the box?

    Cheers in advance folks

    Not wanting to put fear in your mind but it could be your clutch. I experienced similar with a Seat Leon a couple years back but that started slipping aswell

    Thanks for the reply I appreciate it. That's one thing I never considered. Now I'm not sure what to do cos I'm lovin this extra power but don't wanna risk fryin the clutch. Up until I fitted the box the veccy was runnin perfect too!

    Another thing, I was scanning the net and came across a few sites where people mentioned transmission judder or something?! Can anyone shed some light on this for me maybe? Is it a bad thing?

    Cheers

    A proper remap would prob do the same if the clutch is on its way out.

    Agreed, however you will always find the tuning boxes put in too much power low down which will rip a clutch to bits
