Hi, I have an 05 Mondeo 2.0 tdci 130, and have been thinking of fitting a tuning unit. A friend recommended one from kingquick saying it had improved the driveability and fuel economy, but i'm still not sure. :unsure: Just wondered if anyone had any experience of them (or any other units) as i don't want to buy one if they're no good, any views or advice would be much apreciated, thanks ;)

i know a lot of people with these kind of units fitted and are happy with them, but personally i would not risk it as all they do is fool the ecu into upping the fuel pressure which can be a big strane on fuel rails and fragile injectors. a proper remap although more expensive would be the safer bet, in the end its your choice.

Aren't the cheap ones simply a resistor that fools the ECU into thinking the engine is cold so that it simply adds more fuel?
