    Tuning Box/Chip For 1.7 DTi

    Hi,
    Ive been searching the net trying to find somewhere that supplies a power chip/tuning box for a 1.7 DTi... they all seem to do them for the 1.7Di and 2.0 DTi but nothing for the 1.7.... Anyone give me any ideas of where to try???

    I'm not sure that the 1.7DTi can actually be "souped up" using a tuning box due to the unusual engine management on that engine. Even the 2.0DTi needs the tuning boxes soldered into the loom, which sort of defeats the purpose.

    I think you're probably going to have to get the car remapped.

    Yeah, 1.7CDTi and 2.0DTi. Not 1.7DTi, Raz.

    I spoke to Andrew a while back about a tuning box for the 1.7DTi, however, it seems that, not only DTUK not do them, but also most others.

    Bummer really!

    You could still get in touch, might have something new, I dont know, but Andrew is very friendly
