I thought id update you guys officially what we have planned.
FSR+ Hybrid - Multi-Channel Petrol Tuning System
The latest addition to the DTUK® range, developed alongside Shark Performance, the FSR+ Hybrid has been developed for the very latest turbocharged premium petrol cars.
In response to the shift to even more complex tamperproof vehicle ECU’s by many German car manufacturers we have teamed up with Shark Performance to develop a solution that offers a ‘remap in a box’ that does not require physical, warranty voiding, changes to your vehicles ECU. Combining the best of both worlds – the plug & play nature of a tuning box with the in-depth monitoring and software optimisation of a high-quality remap and DTUK’s years of successful system developments with Shark’s years of equally successful software development - the Hybrid is born.
The FSR+ Hybrid Petrol Tuning System.
The FSR+ Petrol Tuning System is an all new system that builds on our existing multimap technology from both our diesel CRD-T and petrol CRD-P systems and adds an increased level of multi-channel monitoring and control as demanded by the latest vehicle OEM ECU’s.
The FSR+ is capable of interacting with multiple channels across multiple sensors to suit each application. These can include RPM, fuel injection, boost pressure, air mass, temperature and more. By simultaneously monitoring a variety of sensors an optimised level of tune can be safely achieved.
Just like the DTUK® Diesel Tuning Systems you may already be familiar with, this system is designed to be plug and play albeit with more connections than most diesel applications due to the number of monitoring points mentioned above.
To maintain quality, safety and suitability we only use Original Equipment (OE) connectors in our systems which enables easy, quick fitting in minutes, not hours. This means that the kit can be removed just as easily when required. Once the system is removed your car reverts back to factory settings.
Often the system can be re-programmed to fit other applications if you change your current car*.
Added benefit of the FSR+ Hybrid Petrol Tuning System.
Historically, our systems have been designed specifically for standard cars. We appreciate that many petrol turbo owners will want to make future hardware upgrades to their engines. If you fall in to this category then you can take advantage of the FSR+ upgrade option where your system can be re-programmed to suit your modifications**.
All FSR+ Petrol Tuning systems arrive to you carefully packed, complete with everything you will need for simple and straightforward installation. This includes full colour instructions, your petrol tuning system, the correct wiring harness including OE connectors and where applicable a blanking plug should you wish to temporarily return the car to standard trim without removing the loom.
These units come with full TüV approval and are well protected in a special heat and acid-resistant plastic exterior housing. Wiring harnesses are equipped with up to seven separate connections and are thoroughly checked, physically and electronically, several times before despatch. The sturdy 18-pin connector used to connect the system to the loom provided is specially designed for tough conditions and is used throughout the automotive sector. The adapter plugs are manufactured to OEM quality. No soldering or cutting of wires is necessary. Just connect it up and it’s done!
The FSR+ system is subject to the strict quality controls of the system manufacturer DTE Systems GmbH. This guarantees that you the customer will receive the best possible product.
*Dependent on compatibility. A replacement loom may be required as well as a software change.
**Software changes subject to development that may be chargeable and may require the vehicle being taken to DTUK®, Shark or an approved dealer thereof.
Some information we have shared with the GOLF GTI forum which also relates to the S3/Golf R
Hi guys i thought id start a new thread regarding our plans for tuning the latest VAG 2.0 TFSI including the new Golf R
Our hardware is produced in Germany by DTE Systems Gmbh, and as their sole Official UK importer we (DTUK) have access to the latest technology they have available and quite often we have systems not available to anyone else.
We have specialised in Diesel Tuning since 2005 and in that time we have sold over 15,000 kits worldwide and over the years have spent 1000's of hours developing our VAG Diesel Tuning kits. Over the last 12 months DTE have invested over £1.5 million into new production facilities including a top of the range MAHA 4WD dyno. The results they're seeing are fantastic but they're only interested in a plug in and go option, they're not interested in offering any stage 2 tunes for petrols.
Over the last 9 years i can count on one hand the number of customers who have asked about adding an exhaust or FMIC to a diesel car weVE tuned for them, where as petrol enthusiasts kind of expect this. Hence the reason we have decided to partner Shark performance on the Petrol tuning side of things. Ben at Shark reminds me so much of myself as were both passionate about what we do, abet via 2 completely different methods but bringing both of years of knowledge together seams like a natural thing.
Tuning boxes over the years have had a lot of bad press, and rightly so. Just like remaps there a good ones, and a lot more bad ones but I'm confident that we (DTUK and Shark Performance) are able offer the best warranty safe option there is on the market for the 2.0TFSI and many others.
So getting back to the boxes, we will be offering 2 options to customers.
1) The FSR system.
this will be a stage 1 tune kit and has been designed for customers who have no plans to add any hardware upgrades to their car. The full retail price on that kit is £499 inc vat. and will be available direct from DTUK or Shark Performance HQ.
2) The FSR+ system
How does this differ to the FSR? Well as i mentioned earlier as the official UK importer for DTE i do have a really good relationship with them and when i asked if they could help us create something a little different, something that would allow us to offer a system capable of being updated for stage 2 tunes and above they were prepared to listen. Several months later the FSR+ was born.
FSR on the left, and FSR+ on the right.
As I've said DTUK is the only official UK importer of DTE Systems tuning modules, so you can be assured of a tuning system of the highest quality with the backing of one of Germanys longest established tuners.
Both systems are now available to purchase, but at this time both kits are only available with Stage 1 tunes, the Stage 2 tunes will be released over the next week or so and i do believe that we will be offering packages with the relevant Milltek exhaust.
This is still work in progress so if you have any questions please ask, and ill update this thread with the all important figures as soon as i can, but i can confirm that the stage 1 tunes will be approx 280/290 and the Stage 2 should be 300+
As Graeme has already mentioned we have seen figures of 353PS produced in Germany.
standard 2014 Audi 8V S3
over the next few weeks Shark will be starting our Stage 2 development for the Audi S3 so id like to think that with the gains were seeing from the Stage 2 Golf GTI that 360/370bhp could be achievable, again i must stress that these figures are my own personal views and we will update this thread in due course.
Anyone wishing to purchase an FSR+ can contact GNJ Motorport or ourselves.
The FSR+ is available for £649.00 and this includes fitting with any Shark Dealer, or available mail order with an £80 discount totalling £575.95 inc vat/carriage. Again these are available direct from ourselves or can be ordered via GNJ Motorsport.
The FSR is available for £549.00 including fitting at DTUK, Shark HQ Again this system is available mail order with an £80 discount totalling £475.95 inc vat/carriage, these are available from DTUK or Shark HQ only
