    Default 2.0dti tuning box

    hey guys got my tuning box fitted to my 2004, 2.0dti today.
    notice i nice difference when driving home,good throttle response, shifts on nicely when overtaking, have it turned up about 3/4 way round the dial ,nice clould of smoke out of the twin pipes when stationary reving, none really when driving though i think.

    so all in all yes it does make a difference but i would advise anyone with no mechanical/electrical understanding not to attempt this as a DIY as the wires going to the pump that you need to link into are a real Cu*t to get at.as well as having to remove half of the inlet manifold and pump 80pin connecting plug just to get at 2 wires, to be realistic the rolling road will tell the tale of exactly how much of a difference the tuning box made but thats a new adventure for a new day
    i'll keep ya's posted on how it goes for me in the long run!!!

    should be good for 125 - 130 bhp on a 2.0 - anything else done ? airbox de-restriction and panel filter worth a go.

    was heading down to portrush last night and had been driving for over an hour and the warning light in the rev counter came on displaying the car with a spanner through it, straight away i said the tuning box done this!!!!has it happened anyone after fitting a tuning box? seemed to come on about 70-80mph and stayed on for a minute or two then went offwhen i slowed down. few mile later it done it again then went off,drove home today and was giving her a good horsing(showing some ''R'' plater in a astra how to drive) and it never came on once at all!!!!! anyone think i should be worried about it? tuning box really helped her its deffinately working well

    that sounds like the service indicator light. Ive had mine go into limp mode once in the 3 years i have had the car, on a journey from liverpool to leicester and back.
