tuning box? you can get a gen 1/2 DTUK tuning box for about £80, or otherwise a good service will give a slight boost!

How much more power can you get with a tuning box? i was under the impression they are only effective with turbo powered engines?

I was under the impression that they really only gain power to non N/A cars too as they're generally mapped for comfort and economy not performance.

well if you go to ebay DTUK I think have there own site on there where they sell them for £80 they are more effective on diesels but they do petrol alternatives I believe, on a diesel you can get 25% more power and torque and up to 10% more economy.

 

Actually come to think of it... I cant remember if the petrols have the relevant connectors to plug into... :(

 

Alternatively you could go for an OBDII port based tuning box which boast some improvement for less, but thats a gamble as I havent heard anyone say they have used them with success?

The eBay special as I call it as everything on it came off the bay got some right bargains as well looks the biz when all shined up if I do say so myself but if you keep hunting and biding your time you can swoop on the bargains like the tinted glass on mine £20 + £50 fitting so god luck with your quest
