    Default A remap and a tuning box??

    (A friend of mine wants to know) if a remapped Signum 150cdti could have a tuning box fitted aswell? One of those with an on/ off swith for occasional extra fun.
    (my) er .. my friends car currently pulls 180 bhp and 390 nm.
    My wife says it a mid life crisis, I just want to know if it will ****** up the engine. Its only 1 year old - the car not the wife!
    cheers

    i'd not do it, but Nutron does use this method on occasion...

    The remap will give it a healthy boost, and when Plasma tried this at Santa Pod, with his box and 888 remap he was actually SLOWER than just with the remap..

    you shouldn't really need to, surely with a remap the car is (or at least should be) enhanced as far as practicably possible already.

    If you do use a box aswell, you may need to play with the settings alot to get to to run without complaining. Also, you can't always just floor it with the box on a remap; as you go up through the gears the engine is loaded more heavily at lower rpm, so you end up smoking in higher gears when you floor it. I have to balance the throttle possition to avoid smoking and get maximum power.

    Unfortunatly, I don't get to run my car on the rollers, so it always just smokes and doesn't get the best result possible.

    It is possible to use both though and I see an extra 30bhp with my mods and a box. I'm hoping my charge cooler will see another small increase.

    The VXR remap doesn't even nearly release the cars potential
