    Having owned 2 other tuning boxes from DTE on other vehicles i finally purchased one for the Coupe.

    I've purchased one of these http://www.diesel-performance.co.uk/...stage-2-(crd-t)

    Fitting it is very straight forward. It plugs into the Common Rail and the boost controller. The control box can be mounted in a suitable location and cable tied into position ensuring the flexible wiring loom isnt going to get caught in any moving parts or melted on something hot!

    The system comes with 4 Maps each of which can be set from -30% to +30% in increments of 10%.

    The system is only active once the car is revved above 3000rpm.

    I have driven the car for a few weeks now with the tuning box on and have had no problems with excessive smoke or engine management lights coming on.

    The additional power the box achieves is really quite amazing. The surge of additional torque from low down the rev range is the first noticeable thing, making light work of overtaking in any gear.

    The additional torque is more noticeable at motorway speeds when accelerating in 6th or 5th gear from 50mph onwards.

    Obviously i cant confirm or deny the claimed increased bhp/NM figures as i havent had it RR. All i can say is that it certainly feels a vast improvement.

    The engine doesnt sound any different and economy hasn't changed either.

    Driving around town enables gear changes at 1300rpm and it will pull 5th gear as low as 35mph without labouring.

    To summarise i would highly recommend anyone who cant go down the remap route, because of warranty issues etc to purchase one and see for themselves.


    I also purchased one of their pedal boxes - http://www.pedal-box.co.uk/site/inde...t&content=5852

    The box basically plugs into the throttle pedal and increases throttle response. The pedal box has 4 different maps and sport or economy modes in 4 different setting. Throttle response is sharpened up and can be set to user preferences.

    Thanks

    Hi mate
    You say the system is only active once you rev past 3k rpm, do you mean you start the car and it'll remain 'standard' until the first time you rev it over 3k then the box is active and the performance is available from that point on until you turn the engine off?
    It looks like I'm going to have to go down the performance box route as my E92 318d can't be mapped through the OBDII port yet :(

    Have you spoken to Jason at BWchiptune yet? as he'll be your best bet at being able to map it through the OBD

    Hi, no I haven't, I've only spoken to Mike at Motech so far.
    Just done a search on google for BWChiptune, I have the website up, but apart from the homepage, every other page doesn't load (i.e. the contact one).

    edit: the website is working now. Will give him a call

    Matt, i'll ask Andy who owns DTE UK/Diesel Performance. I'm fairly sure that the engine is operating as standard enabling you to drive it until it has warmed up etc prior to initiating the tuning box.

    The pedal box is only altering the throttle response and certainly improves the initial take up when pulling away. A dab of throttle gives you good dollop of power.

    Just thought, that you may not get Jason just yet as he's returning from a car tuning show in Asia. Give him a call on 07831 103030 and if you don't get him straight away simply send him a text saying I sent you. He'll get back to you asap. If he doesn't get back to you, then let me know and I'll try for you.

    Matt, i spoke to Andy at DTUK, i was right and wrong. The system does initiate after approximately 3000rpm, however this is only for the first time it is energised after installation. Once its fitted it pretty much on all the time as soon as the engine has started. Stop start technology doesnt effect it.

    Thanks

    Let us know in how you get on I'd also recommend giving evolve a bell as they are good on the later cars.

    Hi Mike, yeah it worries me too lol
    For that reason, I think I'm going to go down the tuning box route for the time being. I'll let you remappers work out a better way of doing it first
