    The plug in box is a tuning box.
    They aren't as good as a remap, although there has been some recent changes where they have had a jump in technology and they can supposedly alter turbo boost and injection duration (previously they would just increase the fuel pressure which has the same effect but it harder on the diesel pump and injectors)

    Remapping is a bit more refined as it works by telling the ECU to do stuff differently, and the tuning box leaves the ECU alone, but intercepts and adjusts the inputs and outputs to give a similar effect.
