    Default RFI: where to find Remaps/Tuning Box reading

    Gentlepeople,

    Can someone point me to some kind of FAQ about remaps/tuning boxes, looking for answers on what's the difference between a remap and a tuning box, strength and weaknesses compared, do's and don'ts, why not with automatic gearbox.

    tia,

    Huib

    Remap is a reprograming of the ECU to perform differently.

    Tuning box adjusts signals to the ECU to trick the ECU and take advantage of manufactures not pushing the most out in order to reduce emissions, extend life, increase reliability, produce multiple power ranges for sale with the same engine, increase fuel economy, e.c.t.

    A remap is better for the car as the ECU is in full control and the program was tested and checked for reliability e.c.t.

    The tuning box may have cause side effects such as smoking if set too high and may even damage the car (if set to high that is).

    The remap is invisible to the eye but could be detected if someone with sufficient knowledge specifically looked for it.

    The box can be removed without trace but obviously can be seen while it is installed.

    For a tuning box, just look on line. For a remap presuming we are talking about a 1.9CDTI, you would be looking at a trip to the VXR performance centre or Courtaneys.
