    Default 2.0DTi Tandem Tuning Box

    Hi all I have my Tandem Tuning Box for sale off my 2003 2.0DTi, I am looking to sell my vectra so I am stripping a few bits off to sell. As for the performance yes you do feel a difference, once setup you can feel a smoother power delivery with more bite, I also recognised an increase in fuel economy, well with my dodgy wiring it became disconnected and I immediately felt the power loss and by the time I got the wiring sorted it was using more fuel. I am not giving any guarantees as this was in my experience, as for damage to the car it has not made a slight difference, again I cannot guarantee it wont damage yours. The box is 5 months old I have the invoice it cost me £229, I am looking for £125 all in delivered. In my opinion it is well wort the money.......... Unfortunately I have to go out today so if you pm me I will get back to you this evening

    Curious for sure, but the DTI engines (the 2.0 & the 2.2 are very similar) are pretty sensitive - there's been a lot of bad press about various tuning boxes - basically the injector pump can't handle the extra pressure some tuning boxes put on it, and the pump goes bang. Not saying this would happen with the Tandem box, but the power gains, what it does, the reliability etc - it's a bit of an unknown. Their website is a non-runner too...
    Too much of an unknown mate...
