    Hi guys

    I popped into my local dealer today and was notified of a company called Drakebox Tuning Draketuning - DrakeBox2...a Burst of Power! Digital Technology Made in

    I am not sure if you guys have used this kit but what are your views on it. I Thought about it for my oil burner but I am not sure.

    What do you think??


    Cheers Gents

    They are a waste of space, they work by confusing the engine in to boost the turbo more meaning the ECU tries to balance the lambda sensor by pushing in more diesel. They just cause a premature death of the turbo and transmission.

    Much better to use a professional map that is designed for the car, for example the ECU limita torque on the 3 litre engines when the auto gearbox is in 1st,2nd and 3rd gears, this prevents it from breaking itself.

    Plug in boost kits have no idea what gear the gearbox is in and the ECU thinks it is behaving like normal so does not realise it is over torquing
