In ebay uk you can find a man selling a similar product for 3 pounds, it also claims to do the same function.

Cheerss
Does it increases fuel consumption ?

Nope. I'm doing this for myself, not for the record or to compare figures. As long as I get more power under my right foot I'm happy.

Tata did not make the indigo dicor engine 90BHP as it would break the gbox with additional torque.
I am wondering wether the Safari Gearbox will be able to take the extra torque and power? The biggest worry with such mods is failure of mechanicals due to power beyond the tolerance range.
As for the engine, its as tough as engines can be and I don't forsee any issues.

I checked out with some members of Tata Club Italia and they have tried this without any issues. We had heard of this box earlier on Tata Club Italia when some chaps were fooling around with other tuning methods - one of them allegedly has a VGT on his Dicor and claims 155 bhp. It was only a matter of time before the box was officially made by a tuning setup and since Dimension Sport is Italian they brought it out first.

They have a fairly active group of Tata Safari users out there in Italy.

I hope there are no issues with steeroid's safari. Lets see how it goes, I might just line up for one.

Even I am not for number buts it would be nice if we can put the power increase, quantitatively, because "increase" in power can be a perception after installing the box.

Bush, what was the alternative to these boxes if I wanted kicks just for a km or two? Pull out the IAT sensor is it?

ive tried the constant resistor for the air intake temp. thermistor i tried it on my 2004 mpfi zen! and trust me it did'nt do any wonders!! if i can find it, i can check out the resistance and if you want to try it you can probably get the same resistance from an elecronic parts supplier which would cost you peanuts!!

Default Italian Job for the 3.0 Dicor

guys,

check this out
Add-on module Tata Safari 3.0 Dicor 116Hp - xtream4x4.it

this is a simple plug and play and claims to increase the dicor 3.0 to 139 BHP and a 25% increase in torque - so that comes to 375 NM!

and costs only 380 euros!!

Anyone used this on their trucks?

also, as an interesting aside, the fact that this has been developed in italy for the safari shows that there is a dedicated fan following for our desi beast there as well
