    dtuk red tuning box

    got an sri 150 and just want to know if the dtuk box's are good for the car, i.e won't harm it in any way? and does the sport button still work with them fitted?

    thanks

    sport button will work as the button doesn't affect the engine,just the gas pedal feel the steering feel and pos the shockers stiffness,done 20'000 on a green box with no troubles up to now.
    if i wanted to be right all the time i would change my title to mrs ledster

    red box adds more power to the car, green is more eco for the car. I have the red and well, its very very impressive, BUT,,, very big but.. Ive had problems with car fulling apart because of the power of this box, i just dont think the car can take it. Ive had a new clutch, gear box, flywheels, egr valve, and turbo all replaced.. maybe its got nothing to do with the box BUT it makes sence in a way.
    Or u can just get the green box, more eco and a little more power for fun. the sports button does still work but i never use it even since i got the box.

    no the red doesnt add more power. it just lets you tweak it more... most ppl get pretty much the same power from both

    i got 202 bhp and 323torq from a green

    and all the problems that the guy from the post above has had also happen on std. its all down to the drive if you mod a car or not, if you drive it hard you will kill the parts faster...

    with my green i keep neck and neck with my mates jap inport type r (220bhp) so the green isnt just for eco thats just used for insurance lol

    ps had it on for em 14months now and had no problems at all.

    what i find really kool about the green box is, it pulls much better below the tturbo then at 2krevs the turbo kicks in but now at 3k revs theres a really big push into the bk seat all the way to the red line.. i love it put ya foot down and it pulls then at 3k pulls even more lol
    astra cdti 202bhp 323 lb-ft torque 45mpg
    audi tt 180bhp and no lb-ft torque lol
