    They do exactly what they say on the tin matey. Only thing to be aware of is warranty issues with Vx.

    Yep, DTUK are a reputable company. Just take it off for service. and never ever tell Vx you fitted it!

    206bhp now, 319lb/ft verified by a r/road printout is pretty impressive!
    Not all cars get the same though.
    DTUk are one of the more well known tuning box companies for sure - just remember you definitely need to inform your insurance about this, so it's worth getting a quote to see how much extra they will charge when it's fitted.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    Still not beating me Hideous

    I have both an old DTUK CRD2 and a Tunit, I find the DTUK CDR2 works better on a standard car but I only got 184bhp on the first car origionally. The next one kicks about the same as Hideous's in terms of power but a few less lbft.

    Obviously the Tunit is more economical though.

    Haha, not my car that's still an unknown, I meant the graph on the ebay page in post #1 for the 206bhp.
    Mind you, I just noticed it was made by Regal's rolling road

    I thought the Caterman box gives less gain in BHP than the diesel tuning box???

    What gives most gain in BHP then? The caterman box is cheaper so would like to go for that.......just that I really need an extra few BHP after owning the 2.5 V6 Vec 'B' and a Scooby. Any advice appreciated guys!
