    Default Fitted my tuning box today

    After a right lot of a@@ing about i finally got my tuning box fitted, had to turn it down a bit as it was over fueling but to be honest i don't think it has had a big improvment. I can deffinetly feel a difference but not a lot at the moment, i think i need to get her on a rolling road to be setup, i was only trying to squeeze a bit more out of my 2.0dti, perhaps i was expecting too much??????

    You might get an extra 30bhp if you are lucky but it should feel reasonably different.

    I remember GG had problems with his tuning box at first, he wasn't getting a strong signal from the throttle switch, try doing a search on his threads, I cant remember how he overcame it, short of binning it and getting a remap instead.

    as nutron said you will only get no more than 25/30 bhp so you should feel a little difference as to the 1.9cdti which will give you 45/50bhp

    To know for sure if it's working, cruise at 60 in 6th on the motorway, plant the throttle, you should accelerate pretty fast if the box is working.
