I'm sure that many of you with CDTi engines have thought about mapping and tuning boxes. When I first got my diesel idecided to go down the tuning box route and got aEco 3 Green box, this was fantastic loads more grunt that put a smile on my face and a 4 ish mpg increase.
After a year I have decided to go one further and upgrade to a DTUK CRD-T at £200 from ebay. I hooked it up, although getting the boost sensor switch disconected was a little tricky and plugged in the box. When I recived the box it was set to Map 4 (Abyss map) +0% so i left it at that.
Well....... OH MY GOD. I thought the car would pull well as with the green box but I wasnt ready to have my face ripped off!! The revs rise from idle to just under 2k rpm then all hell breaks loose and the car just launches. Its like driving with the sports button on all the time but then when the sports button is on its like the car and the car is a mental drug adict thats gone cold turkey and the throttle is its drug. Just a gentle squeeze and its off. Im going to select a lower map until I get used to it (I never thought I would say that!!).
This box is fantastic and the car feels very fast, Ill post more once I have had a play with the other maps.
