    Hey Guys

    Im picking up a brand new 63 plate A5 Black Edition 2.0 TDI (177) Quattro on the 17th, as I did with my S3 I shall be looking at getting a little bit more power out if it, I took my S3 to Awesome GTI 1 week after purchase to have Stage1 and coilovers done and never looked back, but not sure what to do to the Diesel engine, remap or tuning box? What would you guys suggest and where would the best place to go? I am in High Wycombe so Manchaster isn't exactly round the corner! Cheers guys

    I would go for a remap over a tuning box. I tried a box on my 2.0 TDi 170 but it didn't drive very well especially with cruise control set, so I removed that and had a remap instead and am very pleased with the results. By the way, I had the map done by AmD in Essex.

    Just spoke to Andrew at DTUK and he was very helpful.

    My A5 2.0 TDI 177 black edition coupe arrives Monday and i've just ordered the CRD-T chip. Sounds promising.

    I have a DTUK box on my 3.0tdi and mid range seems to be better, but still not had a chance to play with the settings. Problem with the new ecu's is they have to be removed for a remap so box was the way to go for me. I have used DTUK before and also had a remap on a previous car and didnt really notice the difference between the two. A mate has had his 2.0tdi mapped though and he says it is well worth it.

    Hi,

    if youre looking to tune your 177ps drop me a pm, our CRD-T kit is proving very popular with ASN members and doesnt involve any physical modifications.

    details of the kit /expected gains can be found below

    Diesel Tuning box for Audi A5 2.0 Tdi 177 Ps Cr Stage 2 (crd-t)


    and dont forget we offer ASN members £80 off the full rrp and the box can be transferred to 1000's of other cars (a small fee)

    How did it go with the box? I've got the exact same car on order and want to get a bit ore power and also economy out of it, do 50k+ PA so economy really helps

    Audimax, Monopole, any feedback on what settings you have settled for. I've just fitted one and it's currently on the supplied program 4 - 0.

    Cheers

    Had mine fitted now for a little over 6k, results are impressive. Never really see consumption fall below 55ish, had 67mpg on a 50 mile trip down the m1 which was amazing!

    I run the DTUK CRD-T2 on our Renault Master sport van, I have to say it has made a hell of a difference to the way it drives, really recommend these excellent tuning boxes.

    More great news & remember that ALL Revo software other than 1.6CR is Port flashed via the OBD2. So no ECU removal required.
