I know!! The problem is bench flash in S-Cross 1.6. I don't want to dyno only on tuned file. Anyways I have timed the car with G tech / V box and the results were better than my expectations. Yes, it would be interesting to see the actual gains on paper too .

If you are willing to spend more, Unichip is great option too. Sankar has got 567 NM torque with Unichip in his Crysta. Again it depends on the car and Unichip compatibility / support.
Thanks a lot Doc.

Looks like Spitfire (http://www.spitfire.co.in/ is the only authorised dealer for Unichip in TN. Enquired about their prices for plug and play tuning boxes (XUV500) & its only around 12% expensive than RD.

Also the other way i see it as not always we will be on power mode, does it not mean the running is as good as stock.

You mentioned about Carbon/Soot build up in longer term, Is it possible to quantify in terms of KMS?

Googled to check out, if premium diesel could help in this matter. No wonder again I landed on a TBHP thread - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...-diesel-7.html (Diff between Speed diesel, Xtra premium diesel and regular diesel)

Can you share more details of the box and the pricing. I'm also looking out for something for XUV 500. Was planning remap but not able to find much options for remap for XUV.
