    Hi,

    Probably going to get shot down here, but does anyone have any experience of the many diesel tuning boxes available on eBay ?

    For £30 I'm tempted to test[​IMG]

    If you want cheap mate buy a second hand bluefin handset and set it to them for a reset. I paid £16 for the handset and I think £150 for the reset and map. A lot more than 30 but a proper job and a fraction of a custom map. Custom is always the best option providing you go to a reputable mapper.

    Just make sure you contact superchips with the serial number before buying the handset for confirmation.

    I've heard bad things about those tuning boxes, apparently they only give you a slight increase and nothing close to what they state.

    When I was looking about for a place I found this site www.remappers.com - you use MPPS to download the current map on your engine upload it to the site then you get it back for you to flash to the ECU

    In my opinion....it's £30 for a reason, If these were decent everyone would be buying them.

    It is literally a resistor in a box. Will cause the car to overfuel all the time.
