    Default tuning box suggestions

    hello all, i'm new to the forum and all you guys seem pretty clued up.
    i have just purchased a 2003 2.0 dti sxi vectra c, upgraded from a 2003 1.5 dci clio due to new arrival!

    i was quite disappointed to find out its only 100bhp. please can anyone suggest a good tuning box? i had a cr1 for my clio but to be honest didn't notice much power gain.

    there are so many around but which is the best? there also seems to be quite a price range. are the cheapy's as good as the expensive ones?

    ...also if anyone is selling star silver external door handles let me know

    much appreciated! adam

    well.. firstly Hi and welcome to the forum Adam...

    tuning the DTi's is a bit of a minefield..the fuelpump is also the ECU so any tuning box has to be hardwired into the fuelpump ( soldered joints) but the fuelpumps also have a nasty reputation of being fragile and not responding well to tuning..Remaps are avaliable dependant on ECU models but they also carry the same risks..There is only one choice of box really for the 2.0DTi and it's around £400....or a remap will set you back about the same..

    i'd focus instead on making it breathe as well as you can ( air filter and exhaust)...
