    CDTI ECU engine protection and tuning boxes

    Hello, hope someone can help clear up a concern I have over fitting a DTUK CRD2 box to my SRI CDTI 150.
    I know the boxes have been covered in many threads but I'm unable to work out whether the engine protection is still a benefit with a box fitted. The CDTI power is limited ( I believe) until the engine reaches a certain temp, will this restriction still apply with a box fitted, or does the box deliver its maximum power from a cold start?
    One reason I ask is that the GF uses the car to drive to work during the week and it's a short drive. However the car is used at weekends for long journeys and spirited driving by me.

    Other option is a remap with protection included, but they seem mighty expensive compared to the box.

    Any help in making my mind up is appreciated.

    cheers

    Yes, protection is still there and you wont be able to go absolutely nuts till the engines up to temperature. I've tried and the car said '**** off'

    So, perfectly safe
