    DTUK experiences?

    Another question from me this morning...

    I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with DTUK boxes in terms of the gains and how well they work? They state an increase from 240PS to 287PS and 500Nm to 640Nm (!!) with no hardware changes. This sounds like a big gain since the R8 V10 comes with 530Nm! Haha.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dan

    DTUK are pretty good but i preferred the racechip from racechip.de.....Gains in diesel cars are pretty good and easily attained. My 335d went from 284hp to 360 with 700Nm torque. In sport mode it would spin the back wheels at 50 when the pedal was mashed. great fun and cheap power. It took a little setting up as it was adjustable and if you go too high you can get the engine management light coming on. Basically the car is just over fueling under hard acceleration and it needed tweaked down a little (5 min job). Very easy to fit and remove. About 20 mins start to finish and easily achievable for anyone with a little bit of mechanical ability.

    They look good to and promise higher power levels but lower torque figures. Also, they state those are the maximum gains where as DTUK say that's the minimum level they have achieved so it is possible it could be even higher than that! I've also heard good things about DTUK's customer service so I'm understandably swayed. And they're cheaper to boot. Haha. I'll phone both of them before I buy anything of course...

    Not forgetting DTUK offer ASN members a higher discount so don't forget to mention that too!
    Audi Northampton, Audi Ipswich, and Audi UK are rubbish and lack the basic skills of customer service.
    Please read my posts about my experience, and I hope this helps you to make the decision not to buy an Audi 2.0 TDi 170 engine, they are not fit for purpose and the tolerance levels are a joke.

    We ran our own A5 and A6 3.0TDI 240PS this last year, and the figures on the website for the Audi 3.0 are based on dyno figures from our own A6 and a friends Touareg.

    And ASN members can save £80 off the full rrp on all of our systems too.

    That's perfect, thanks Andrew. I think that I'll put some miles on the new car and then give you a shout.

    I didn't realise you were on here or I would have given you a shout direct! Haha.

    Weve boxed over 150 2.0' and 3.0 Audi common ral engines without any dpf issues.


    Once the system is removed, there are no traces left behind, plus no need to crack open our ecu like a remap.

    Funnily enough this was the first thing I asked! Haha. Andy informed me that there were no required hardware changes so was still just plug and play.

    Not all B8's need ECU removal. Mine didn't.

    One benefit of the box is when removed its undetectable unlike a remap. I have had them on all my diesel cars and they are so easy to fit and remove unlike the mapping which in my opinion is mre hassle. I wish i could get a plug and play for my B8 2.0 TFSi

    Nice to hear, I'll make sure I save so that after Christmas I can get some little mods done.

    Who did your remap? My ECU required removal and remapping directly to the pins. As soon as you try to flash the ECU via the OBDI port it wiped the ECU!!!!!!!! THat was with a REVO map

    We already offer members an £80 discount on all of our systems, which is the highest amount of discount we offer on forums.

    Our trade customers who buy systems in 10's do get them cheaper, so if we can get 5 names on a list i can book them out as "trade sales".

    If youre interested please drop me a pm


    The CRD-T is the system which connects to the common rail + boost sensor, and increases/controls the boost as well as the fuelling..

    Some recent feedback from a 2.0TDI cr Owner below:

    Hi Andrew,

    I trust you are well?

    I have created a thread �
    awaiting approval from the site admin regarding the CRD-T

    Here is what I
    have written



    My username on audi sport is H4ldex

    Hi
    Guys,
    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
    Firstly the
    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
    more driveable
    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
    After chatting
    to Andrew and looking at many of the positive testimonials I decided to give it
    a try.
    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!
    I then
    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

    Regards

    Amit

    DTUK experiences?

    I've get a CRD on my 2.0 TDI had it for about 2 or 3 months and love it. Serious change in the car. Wanted the box due to still having the Audi warranty.

    Also recently purchased a pedal box from Andrew at dtuk and again really good product makes the car so much more responsive. Glad I got the box first then the pedal box a month or two later as I had time to experience the power and then increased throttle response.

    Well I went ahead and bit the bullet today... After asking Andrew many (probably too many!) questions and him answering them all without resorting to shouting at me I went ahead and ordered myself one of these units.

    As I said to him, the fact that he had just finished some development/tweeking on the maps for the same engine I'm buying for made me happy that he puts the effort in to continually make his product better. If the unit is as good as his patience, temperment and customer service then it will be amazing.

    If anyone is thinking of ordering one of these I'd PM and see what kind of deal he can manage for you while he still can, you may be able to save some money and get some better power and MPG at the same time! Once on I'll see if I can't arrange a rolling road day to display the differences!

    I don't know how you've been finding the mpg for that engine but since there are so many people having issues it might be worth letting us know if it improves things at all?

    My brother is running a 2.0TDI 170PS Leon and hes seeing best results on Map 2 + 2.

    Is your car brand new Ronnie? As we always advise having 1,000 miles on the clock before adding the system

    The car is 5 months old and has done 5500 miles so it should be ok.
    I'll not be hammering it I'm just curious to see what it does to the car.

    I'm relatively happy with the standard car but couldn't resist a wee bit more power

    Awww crap... That means I'll have to put some miles on it before I'm allowed the new power! Sad times. Haha.

    It's hard to explain, the best person to speak to is andrew from Dtuk. It basically acts like a traditional sport button by making the throttle response sharper. It's got 3 modes sport, sport + and Eco. In each of these you can go up 3 or down 3 in sensitivity. I drive with Eco -3 (which is still more responsive than oem) when I fancy a blip or overtake quick switch to sport and it pulls so much quicker.

    Haha... Brilliant.

    Well if it works anything like the sport button on my VXR it means in 'eco' mode if you physically push the pedal 50% down you will get 50% throttle, push it 75% and you get 75% throttle and everything in between for example. When activated, my sport mode changes how much throttle it gives you for a given physical travel of the pedal. So pushing it down 50% may now be giving you 80% throttle and pushing 75% down on the pedal may give 100% throttle.

    Basically it seems like the travel of the pedal and the throttle position can be made non-linear, unlike if you had a traditional cable operated pedal/throttle (unless you used some pulleys or something of course...).

    I hope that makes some amount of sense and I haven't just gone into engineer mode and sound like nothing more than a dribbling wreck to everyone else! Haha.

When activated, my sport mode changes how much throttle it gives you for a given physical travel of the pedal. So pushing it down 50% may now be giving you 80% throttle and pushing 75% down on the pedal may give 100% throttle.

    Basically it seems like the travel of the pedal and the throttle position can be made non-linear, unlike if you had a traditional cable operated pedal/throttle (unless you used some pulleys or something of course...).

    I hope that makes some amount of sense and I haven't just gone into engineer mode and sound like nothing more than a dribbling wreck to everyone else! Haha.

    I bet! People make jokes about the build quality and such of the Astra VXRs but when they get to stage 2 or 3 they are seriously fast if you can put the power down so you can dispute the outright speed of the little four pots.

    Both me and Jen had Astra VXR's, add a Remus exhaust and they sounds mental...

    Im liking the sound of your car actually Dan, i love my S4 avant and hold the 3.0 Audi TDI in high regard. Im hoping theyll offer the BiTDI in the A4 once BMW introduce the 335/340d

    That would be my next car for sure.

    Thanks Andrew. My thinking was that for an extra £1.5k or so I could have had the S4 but the insurance and running costs are significantly higher as well. The 3.0 Tdi is a good little engine from what I've experienced and with your box running at 640Nm (only 20Nm shy of a Lambo Mucielago I found out!!) it should provide more than enough punch for the UK roads.

    I agree that the BiTdi would be stupidly fast in the A4, I think the only problem is that I'd have to weigh up the £4.6k price hike it brings from my current engine, provided it's the same difference as on the current A6. I wonder what kind of power and torque you could get out of that block...

    Do the DTUK boxes work OK with multitronic gearbox? Will it make the standing start lag better or worse?

    DTUK experiences?

    It's ok I fitted the unit tonight pretty straight forward. The main problem was deciding where to mount the unit as there are no instructions for this!

    I've only been out for a 20 mile run but first impressions are good. Definitely a lot more oomph above 2k rpm in fact that's not doing it justice it flies from 2k to 4k rpm.
