Have bought a new battery in the local electrical shop and put in the remote. But still the remote is not working (the blue indicator light is not glowing). Anyone faced issue with their remote and how to get that replaced?

Hi AliAbdullah,
I see your clutch wear out too soon, than its expected life at mere 25, xxx Kms. I have stock clutch on my remapped Optra, at 57, xxx kms. I guess, you would be under warranty and my Swift's clutch was replaced under warranty at 10, xxx Kms (clutch was fine anyway but, they replaced to sort some other issue).
Boost DIY looks good.
Thanks,
Bharath

Hi all!!
I am a bit nervous getting mods done on my car (Innova 2014). So any help would be deeply appreciated. I would like to improve the pickup and speed and can someone tell me where in Hyderabad i can get to fix a DieselTronic tuner. The car has done close to 45K.
Will it reduce engine noise in any manner?

Do check this link for the list of dealers :

http://dieseltronic.racedynamics.com/dealers/

I would suggest dual channel box from Race Dynamics. It controls both rail pressure and turbo boost. Power delivery is much better than single channel box.

Cheers!!

Hi Guys,

I have a 2012 Etios Liva GD. My main requirement is better acceleration (0-100 time). Top speed is not much important.
Kindly let me know if there are tangible benefits of this on a Liva.
Thanks in advance.

Has anybody used "Tuning Device" like one from Red Rooster: RRP Dyna Drive?
Does it make sense to have it installed on Duster 85ps Diesel?

Got the dual-channel Dieseltronic kit installed on my XUV a couple of weeks ago from RaceSmithAuto, Mumbai. Fantastic is an understatement to describe the experience.

The installation was simple and quick and all it took was an hour to wire it properly and attach the box safely in one corner of the engine bay away from all heating and moving parts. What was sorely missed was a bunch of 3M style double-sided tape or few velcro patch stickers along with the kit (RD guys - its a must include in the box).

The power surge in P2 is insane with the big car feeling like its high on steroids. The way she pulls with a light tap on the gas in P2 is something which is both scary and unbelievable for a car its size. I have noticed that too much fun in P2 tends to get expensive at the fuel bunk so I keep it strictly for those open-road drives where there is enough space to let her stretch her legs. You do tend to hear the engine a lot more in the cabin in P2 though and the ever-quiet XUV cabin suddenly has this boom from the engine which even the passengers tend to notice. To me its just pure music of the car coming into its own with a mood to play serious ball.

I usually drive her now daily in P1 mode and while its definitely peppier and faster than the stock maps, the biggest surprise was the gain in fuel efficiency. My daily use cycle denoted an indicated 12.x kmpl on the MID which has now gone up to a steady 14.x post the RD box. No matter how I driver her, the figure on the MID refuses to go south of 14 kmpl which frankly is fantastic. This gain in fuel efficiency alone is worth spending on the kit. The overall driveability and responsiveness of the engine has definitely gone up vs stock. It even feels smoother across the rev range now (the XUV engine was already quite refined to begin with).

The E mode honestly is boring and blah specially after driving it in P1/2. In anycase I am very happy with the fuel efficiency being returned on P1 so I see no need for me to go into E mode unless I am limping on a dry tank and trying to stretch every last drop of fuel in search of the next bunk.

Believe me, that P2 mode is worth every single penny spent on the DieselTronic specially if you own an XUV. It will make you fall in love with your car all over again.

I have driven few cars with dual channel box and I can't agree with you more

For XUV 500, RD dual channel box is the best bet. Remap is little risky for this car. Bench flash (Open ECU job) for XUV 500 is not that easy and I know few remap guys who even bricked the ECU .

Please note that after this installation, the MID is no longer accurate. A detailed explanation was provided in an earlier post (if you go back around 3/4 pages).

I can vouch for this personally. On my Innova, the MID shows an average FE of around 15-15.3 kmph, but in my tankful-to-tankful calculation it translates to around 11.5-12 kmph. Earlier (prior to the install) the gap in the real-life fuel efficiency and that displayed on the MID was only around 1 kmpl.

So the bump in the MID calculated fuel efficiency (which honestly even made me super happy initially) is just a calculation error.

That said, the improvement in the driving character without adversely impacting fuel efficiency itself is a noteworthy achievement.

Yikes. I had wondered if the box had manipulated the MID in any way but then decided against it as the box dint seem 'smart' enough to fool the system to that extent. Guess I was wrong on it. Will try the full tank method to validate this next time. Thanks for the headsup

Is your XUV a manual or AT?

Its a Manual. I think the box should work with the AT as well

Has anyone installed the Diesel Tronic box on their Creta, are there any reviews of it ?. The only complaint I have about this car is the low end torque, its pretty dull. I always felt this care needed more power, especially on the highways. I would like to know two things :

1. If the the DT will take care of the low end torque problem ?

2. I do drive with a pretty heavy right foot, should I be bit concerned about the clutch? I don't want it to fry up.

One of my friend is using RD dual channel box in his Creta. The performance is very good. There is good punch even at low end. The maximum difference is in mid range. Please get dual channel box and not single channel. Dual channel box controls both fuel and boost : better power delivery. Also you can contact RD and take a demo of the box.

Cheers!

I recently got dual channel box installed on my Creta 1.4. I'm driving in P1 for about 2k kms and the torque in P1 is enough to keep you moving in third gear in slow moving traffic. I see that the RPM needle moves faster to the 1200 band compared to the stock /economy mode. I never tried P2 and E mode, I don't see it using myself in city B2B. I beleive it is for highways mainly.

Let me know if you have queries.
