3 years, 2.2 L kms, and even ran a Pete's box for sometime. -

I spoke about the average or rather the minimum life of a turbo on a DDis before it starts giving trouble. Yes i have seen cars which have done over 2 lakh kms but i have seen cars which have needed turbo replacements around the 1.5 lakh mark .

Do some research by searching for the products you're interested in. As for what they do, check the link below:

The Spider Diesel tuning system.

That's just one model. There are several others as well. Race Dynamics Dieseltronic is a home grown model who claims the first ever module with a remote map selector. Its Indian and proud to be!

Hi,

Just wanted to understand this, is the pete's tuning box connected in series with the existing ECU or as a separate standalone device, excluding the existing ECU which is kept redundant?

Can we also have a comparison with other tuning boxes such as Spider, Racedynamics etc? :-D

All tuning boxes be it Pete's or Racedynamics Dieseltronic are always connected in series. They are referred to as piggyback units and not standalone.

The very basic idea is that it takes the readings from the ECU and then sends a different set of readings to the sensors. There are complex algorithms involved that need to take care of all scenarios. It's not just simple maths.

Is it the signals from the ECU to the sensors that's changed or vice versa? What are the difference between the different tuning boxes?

The signals from the ECU to the injectors are changed. The ECU reads from it's various sensors then sends the required signals to the injector system. Incase of a tuning box, it's the tuning box that is sending the signal to the injectors.

The difference is the algorithm or software used. Some tuning boxes change the fuel rail pressure some change the duration of injection and some change the boost pressure of Turbo.

I don't think the companies reveal what parameter they are altering but some experts here would know.

I don't know about all the tuning boxes, but most of the cheaper ones simply lower the voltage signal from fuel rail pressure sensor. Usually done by passing the generated signal through resistors of some sort. Drop in voltage tels the ecu, that it needs to increase fuel injection pulse in order to meet the required target of air flow and throttle position etc.
The so called map selector dial, simply increases or decreases the amount by which voltage from fuel real pressure is lowered.

actual value of most of the boxes is les s than 50 bucks, selling them at 20+k is almost criminal.

Dear Mates,

Can anyone confirm is Pete's Diesel tuning box is worth paying that extra bit when RaceDynamics is available at a lower cost?

Thanks in advance

Hi Pete.

I'm more interested in the engine's smoothness, refinement, and FE. My daily running is 100 Kms on NH 8 in Beat D.

I have a light foot. With that and the manufacturer recommended cold tire 34 PSI, I'm already getting the promised FE of 25.

What FE do you think I can expect from the box? Touching — and crossing — 30 to the Liter is my dream.

What can I say?
Where most people have dream BHP figures to drive, I have a dream FE figure I want to attain.

No, Tuning Box is not available for TSI engines, Remap is the only option.

I'm using a Pete's box on my 2009 Punto for 6+ years. I installed it when the odo was @10K - current odo reading is @97K. So I've used it for 87K km.

It's been flawless so far - no problems faced ( touchwood ). It did improve the low end response and pickup. Planning to continue using it so long as I keep my car. I don't take it out when I give it for service - just tell the SA that the box is there on my car , and I should see it when it's being returned .
