    Default Which Tuning box ?

    Read this first please -

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3921

    The way I understand it is that the CR1 is on all the time.Now since mine dosen`t always get warm,would this be good for mine.

    Or would the new digi box be better - the way I under stand it is that you can programme it better,such as not coming into full affect till the engines warm for example.

    Or would a tuning box not be worth it.

    It does get driven more at weekends etc for a little `fun`.

    thanks in advance

    Hello Installer.

    The CR1 is excellent mate.

    There is a small amount of smoke sometimes when you boot it & a puff on start up, otherwise nothing.

    It's fitted in seconds, but has little effect until its adjusted via a small grub screw.

    After adjustment believe me, the car is a road eating beast & very relaxing to drive due to the huge torque, it even seems to remove the turbo lag.

    Go for the CR1, you won't regret it. IMO

    Ta for the reply.

    Read alot about the CR1 and at present seems the one to get.
    But,
    my car,due to where I live and the useage it gets during the week,REALLY struggles to get warm - which would appear to be battering my mpg.
    My concern is that with it still probably in it`s cold cycle - putting more fuel in like a choke? - would a CR1 make my mpg worse with it working all the time.Would a digi box being better,allowing the car to warm up before giving it`s full affect.

    I have a CR1 mate and can highly recommend it, since I have had mine I have noticed quite a good increase in mpg even though I mostly make only short journeys now.

    I would recommend a tuning box, but which one you have is up to you and you finances.

    It is definately worth the investment just for the smile it puts on your face.

    Ive had a CRD digital box from Dragon and am currently running a CR1 from Diesel-tuner.co.uk. I only do short journeys these days, in fact its mostky my wife who does them, ie approx 30 miles per week lol and for the cash i'd go for the CR1 everytime. Ive not notcied anything other than an increase in mpg with the cr1, whether warmed up or not.
