    Default TDI Tuning Box

    Bought one of these 2nd hand, but no instructions, easy enough to fit. But are there any adjustments on these units or is it all of nothing?

    Fitted onto a Veccy CDTI 150, thanks in advance

    What type of box did you get ?. If it's a t tuning box aka caterman it's a fixed setting.

    Iv got a tdi-tuning box on my car and there is a little screw inside which is accessable from a tiny hole on the back of the box which can be turned clockwise to up the boost and vice versa. It comes from the factory set in the middle but turning the screw will feel endless, just do 2 turns at a time until ur happy with the power and ur not blowing out too much black smoke behind!

    With the Tuning Box, K&N Panel Filter and Air Box Mod my Veccy was rolling roaded at 185bhp, all smiles m8!
