Visited Petes at Cochin today and peted my Optra Magnum. Fixed the Green Cotton Storm filter with dynamisation kit too. The feel is just awesome. Engine has become lot smoother and torque delivery has become more even, particularly in thrid and fourth gear.

Default Reply I got from PTronics for my Cruze.

Below is the email I got for the addon chip unit for my Cruze. I shall be going for it once the running in period of my car is over which should be in about a month or two.

Dear Sir

Thank you for your request concerning your Chevrolet

The unit is very easy to fit on this car, the unit is delivered with a full instruction ( with picture)
Delivery time is 2 days + clearance time, it's important to know that you have to pay customs taxes on delivery to india

You can find all price and power gain information on this link:
P-Tronic additional box-units :: power kit ::engine chips :: diesel chips :: power box-units :: diesel tuning :: power box-unit :: chiptuning :: increase engine power :: diesel booster :: TDI tuning :: additional box-unit (NEW)

There is 15% discount at this time ( and free delivery )

What are the new benefits of the P-tronic® add-on unit?

1. Its latest-generation microprocessors with their constant automatic control system offer a very reliable and secure product.
2. Other manufacturers’ units increase the fuel injection pressure proportionally without taking into account the speed at which the engine is running. By contrast, thanks to its new program, the P-tronic® add-on unit “Intelligent injection controller” constantly checks the intake levels for ignition and the engine temperature. It is combined with a new system for monitoring the running of the engine.
3. The new program of the P-tronic® add-on unit adapts to your driving. So the system switches automatically to economical mode when the car is being driven slowly, then returns to performance mode in 0.05 seconds when it is powerfully accelerated.
4. This unit offers the user a choice of different programs. It can favour fuel economy or provide additional torque or power or a compromise between the two.
5. The P-tronic® add-on unit is equipped with a delay designed to prevent excess fuel injection and smoke emissions when the vehicle is cold started.
When the engine is started for the first time, it should be allowed to tick over slowly for 30 seconds. During this first minute, the P-tronic® automatically detects the various data from your car’s specific sensors and modifies its own program as a result. After this first start, the software is adjusted specifically for your engine.

Don't hesitate to contact me for any future questions

best regards

I am unable to find the right answer to this yet. If the after market (K&N or GC) increases the airflow, doesn't it filter the dust properly? How is it exactly working in order to work well under Indian pollution?
Could you please check with Pete?

Also, Is fitting Pete (or any other) ECU void the warrenty from the manufacturer? Are all their products certified by ARI and allowed by RTO?

From pictures on another thread, I see that in the case of RD there is a knob that has to be installed along with the main unit. In the case of Pete, there is no such thing. So even if both these are plug and play units, how are you going to explain the knob to the service center guys in the case of a warranty claim? Can the knob also be installed in such a manner so that it can be removed without a trace?

Off Topic: Anyone know of someone who has installed the RD on a Scopio?

Hey Dockap -

I guess it's been 2+ years that you have been using the RD Box, would be thankful if you may throw some light on how it's been coming along?

A detailed report on how the different modes feel like would be really helpful.

Thanks Mate.

Happy Motoring !!

That version of the rd box has since been discontinued, they have launched a new version with a wireless remote for switching between maps!

Just installed the RD Dieseltronic box in my Swift Diesel yesterday.

Im thrilled with it. I considered the Pete's, but chose the RD because:

1. Changeable maps: You can change performance maps on the fly with the wireless remote and switch between Stoock, Economy, Performance 1, and Performance 2.

2. No smoke: Unlike the Pete's box, there's no smoke from the RD box even in P2 mode under heavy acceleration.

3. More balanced performance: When I drove a Pete'd swift, I loved it. Im getting the same wrecking-ball-in-your-back surge when I give the car the beans in P2 mode, but I can switch between maps depending on driving conditions. In P2, the RD claims 40% gains in power and torque, which is higher than Pete's claimed figures.

4. Cheaper: The RD box is 20 grand, which means it's about 10 grand less than the Pete's box if you were to get the Pete's with a CAI (which you need to cut out the smoke).

5. Coolness: Changing performance maps on the fly with a remote? Come on!!!!

Pics to follow.
