    Default Tuning advice - and I HAVE read this forum thoroughly :)

    Hi all,

    Not been on here for a while and spent 3 hours last night trawling this section for advice......

    I have the t-tuning/caterman box on my Siggy and am seriously considering a replacement. This is based on feel rather than hard facts (not done a rolling road) but I am very mindful of the "diminishing returns" comment I have seen on threads.

    There have been some suggestions - such as the 888 remap - but I am still unclear as to which route to go and how much to spend. The t-tuning was a cheap, quick upgrade and as I have decided to keep the car for at least another year or two (lots of business miles) I am happy to stump up some "proper" money to get it sorted.

    What would be the best route to go to give me the maximum power without getting into intercooler mods etc. I am looking at improving airflow (K&N, airbox mod?) and then the best tuning (box vs. remap). I had a tunit on my beemer 330d and A3 20tdi, which seemed to give a far more pronounced improvement that the t-tuning box has seemed to do - although this may be more perception!

    The "nutron" approach (map and box) sounds interesting - has anyone done this with a t-tuning box?? All advice gratefully received

    Hello Paul,

    I had an auto siggy 1.9 and got the filter and the bsr remap unit.

    See this link for further info:- http://www.bsruk.co.uk/

    The car was totaly transformed after the remap and felt much better to drive, inturn the fuel consumption dropped.

    I also used the car for work doing 40,000 miles a year and it was money well invested and you'll be looking at around 185bhp.

    Many people on here petrol and diesel love the BSR kit.

    IMO its one of the best flexible mapping soultions currently available.

    Thanks for this reply - I see you're not too far from me. Did you get this done locally? If so, by whom? I drive a lot for work, but would prefer to have it done nearby if possible.

    the beauty of the bsr map is you do it yourself via the ppc and email

    .......erm.......you do the BSR remap yourself

    You pay £550 and LMF will send out the remmaper which you plug in and read the car's ECU. You might be lucky and it will tune straight away but more likely you will have to upload your ECU readings and they send you the map to download and then load into the car

    Takes approx 4 mins to tune and the results are very good and proven

    The BSR re-map is via a programmer which plugs into the OBD under the ashtray.

    You can order the kit via LMF.

    You then have the choice to map and de-map the car when you want with lifetime support from BSR in sweden.

    OK - got it. Wasn't clear from the other posts I saw.

    Do I buy direct from BSR? LMF?? If the latter, do you have contact info?

    Sorted, 30 minutes later and almost £800 lighter I await my new toys! (BSR box, K&N and new set of eibach springs)

    Now about keeping the t-tuning box on it as well?......

    DON'T keep the box on with the map. Nutron only does this for RR runs and 1/4mile runs, it isn't going to do any good running them both at the same time.

    The BSR PPC is a great piece of kit and I'm sure you will be more than happy with it
