    Has anyone any experience with dte systems tuning box. I have the chance of a second hand one for a good price, but not sure how or where it fits. Which connector does it tap into?

    To be honest i don't know. It certainly feels slower now though and the mpg has dropped 2 mpg.
    I've started it a low price because it has no manufacturers name or numbers on it either

    They normally give you about 40-50bhp more performance and a rise in MPG under normal driving conditions but this rise is relative to how you drive obviously. I once had a customer who complained that he got a reduction in MPG.......turns out he was booting it everywhere he went and refused to accept this......#thickasmince

    Is it worth buying one? I'm interested in yours @quattrodave.

    I have tried 2 of them .Both s/hand and good makes.One was from the original Tuning box Co_Of course I don't know how old they were but both failed after about 2years due to break down in the wiring which gets a lot of heat where it fits on top of the engine.I wouldn't try another cos the sudden loss of power isn't good and the difference they make not big
