    Default Diesel chip tuning and economy

    Hey guys,

    I know a lot of diesel tuning chips advertise 10-15% better economy... how many people have experienced better/worse economy?
    I have a signum 3.0 V6 CDTI design and am thinking about chip tuning it but don't want worse economy!!!

    I see you have a 2006 Facelift...The only advice is NOT TO CHIP/BOX it!!!!! Leave it standard, it's a fragile unit and already running on the limits.

    got same motor myself and got the same advice - any more power on the drivetrain and it'll probably eat itself!

    I'd doubt that putting more fuel into an engine that is already well on top of its job is going to give you more mpg.
