    Default 1.9 CDTI (150) Auto - Tuning box?

    Can anyone advise if the DTUK or Caterman boxes will work ok on my 2007 1.9 CDTI Sri Automatic? Ive heard itll have a DPF and therefor not suitable. True or not? Thanks guys.

    I wouldn't put any tuning box on a car with a DPF (which yours will have).It just won't cope with the excess soot that a box puts out,particularly if you drive the car aggressively all the time.

    I would imagine that your car already has the latest DPF updates that keep it as clean as possible in standard form,so any more modding will require a remap to increase the re-gen cycle for the DPF,so you may as well get it remapped.

    But do look at some other threads/forums where remaps have been used with DPF'd cars before you make that decision!

    Also remember that it's one mighty expensive gearbox that you've got there! LOL
