    Does a DTUK box damage your car at all?

    I'm just wondering if a DTUK box has any affect on the lifeline of any of the components on your car? e.g clutch, engine etc..

    Also would the stealers know if i've had a tuning box on it after i've taken it off? For warranty purposes..

    I'm going to declare it to my insurance though obviously.. only an extra £90

    em no it doesnt.. the only thing is your right foot its all up to the driver with a modded car..

    the box when you take it of leaves no trace so they will not know...

    But like i said the box will not hurt yopur car if you push it hard all the time then yes, but this would be the same with or with out the box
