15 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

New boy "Denim" here

Been reading about tuning boxes and wondered.

Have any of you Oil Burners out there got a PSI Tuning box ?

If so,any good ? Opinions on power Increase and fuel consumption !

Anybody using any other Tuning box opinions welcome !

Great Forum by the Way 169144-ok.gif

Tuning boxes for TDI's are excellent, but keep clear of the cheap ones! All they tend to be is a resistor that increases fuelling 169144-ok.gif

Whats the crack with these boxes....

I've read that a dealer can detect/count the amount of re-maps done if they hook it up to their DIAG equipment, is this true? or do these boxes sit inbetween something so they are undectable?

Can someone clear this up for me please?

I'm getting A4 1.9TDi QS 130ps

Cheers

Most tuning boxes can be removed quickly and easily - for example, if you are sending it in for a service, or need to get Audi Assist out.

The only way the dealer can detect a tuning box is if its fitted i suppose! It will alter the setting to the air/fuel ratio. However, when removed, there is NO way to tell if the box has been fitted, UNLESS a fault code has kicked up (ask UBM!). Even then, it cant really be proved...... cool.gif

Dont know about re-maps.... hopefully someone else will help you out there! 169144-ok.gif

Ordered a Green cotton air filter (3 week delivery time) Is It worth fitting the tuning box before I get the filter ?

YEA!! Get it on ASAP - just make sure your insurance know...... sekret.gif You dont want to be in a wreck (god forbid!) to find out its invalidated your insurance!!

Pop the filter in when you get it and you should notice a bit more difference and then know it was worth that bit extra! 169144-ok.gif

Now, as I remember, Green cotton air filters use an oil to stop particulate matter getting into the engine. However, there are many who think that oil air filtration deposits the said oil on the MAF. Oil on the MAF is a sure fire way to make it fail. The stock air filter is perfectly adequate for filtering, and there's no possibility of destroying the very fragile MAF.

My personal view is that I wouldn't be paid to have oil soaked filters in my airbox. Your view may be different.

Green Cotton Air filters are supposed to be the preferred option over say K&N because they are not Oily !

Opinions please ?

Usually the only way the dealer can tell is if its a permanent chip or non switchable direct port remap both of which use some of the fault code memory cache eg:if there should be say 10 meg for fault records with the remap/chip theres only 7 meg left then they know you've been upto something and tell you to bolt my dealer employed mate reports znaika.gif hope this answers some of your questions 169144-ok.gif
