I trust you are well?
I have created a thread �
awaiting approval from the site admin regarding the CRD-T
Here is what I
My username on audi sport is H4ldex
I'm a newbie to Audi-Sport.net
I have had my CRDT tuning box
for about 3 -4 weeks now and thought I should write a review
service from DTUK has been excellant -Andrew and the team have been great in
answering any questions or any concerns
It all started when I decided to
upgrade the power output of my Audi A3 Quattro Tdi - in standard form it is a
great car but I wanted to get better mileage out of the engine and make the car
I Initially contacted many different remap specialists and
was told that the ECU would require removal to be remapped - which I really
didn't like the idea of
Viezu claimed that my ECU was a PPD even though I
told them it was a common Rail!
I went to a REVO Technik reseller around my
area - they needed to read my ECU and then work out if they could remap it - I'm
still waiting to hear back from them - something tells me that they won't be in
contact - anyway I gave up waiting and contacted Andrew @DTUK
to Andrew and looking at many of the positive testimonials I decided to give it
Installaion of the device was easy enough a bit tricky to get to the
Turbo MAF plug but if your a competent home mechanic it should be easy enough if
your have a A4 - logitudinal engines are easier to install on
The A3 is a
little tight to work on - try changing a light bulb!
Once installed I left
the device on the standard map 1 and 10 % boost setting to begin with and took
the car out for a test drive
First impressions - wow its a different car the
power and torque was available all the way to the 4.5K what a transformation it
performs like a petrol engine and really has some useable power!
decided to play about with the settings so I tried map 2 with 10% boost - not as
smooth as map1 but felt more torquey
I am currentley running map2 +20% this
is my favorite setting the car goes like a rocket and gives great economy too
I managed to achieve 61.8mpg on a cruise upto manchester!
Map 3 I found
to be the most torquey overall I prefer Map 2 +20%
I have not tried map 4
yet but have been told that it is only increased fueling but I'm guessing the
boost settings allow for the extra boost - I need to confirm this with Andrew
I can also confirm that the quality of the hardware is really good the box
is well made the loom is made to a very high standard also
Overall I am
very impressed with the unit a great purchase - and it has completely changed my
opinion on tuning boxes
I have driven many Audi's that have been remapped
and can't really tell the difference between the tuning box and remap
another good point is that the hardware is mine to use wherever I want!
A remap is just thin air - I cannot move it to another car etc!
Thanks again DTUK
I will have a review on pedal
box also to post very soon
