Thumbs up Dragon Tuning Box for diesel engines

Here is what i found on the web.

Has anybody used dragon tuning box. The torque gain is really astonishing. 92bhp/210Nm on fiesta will be really cool.

Can you someone please write comment/review/feedback on this please.

For an Accent CRDi it has listed a whopping 28bhp increase. Also, the site lists two different increases for an Accent CRDi. Website mistake???

Anyways, would be interesting to know if these tall claims are really true!

Looks interesting. There are several several several powerboxes for the Fiesta 1.4. Make sure it is compatible with the Siemens ECU though, Fiestas/Ikons sold in India come with the Siemens SID 804 ECU. How much does this cost and have you connected with any of the existing customers? Warranty?

I have shortlisted one for my Ikon TDCi. PM me if interested.

I feel that lower the power and torque gain, lesser harm it does to the car.

That name sounds very Chinese. Some background checks may be in order before you place your oder.

I am trying to reach these folks to check if this is available in india I am not able to reach them yet. The reason I am interested in this is becuase this one shows the highest gain in terms of power and also torque.

Also someone has written that it is fully digital.

Proxima have to check the part about siemens this with those folks.

I saw a couple of more on the web. One from synergy and another one from ptronic. Any body has any opinons on them. I am planning to source it through a friend of mine from UK. Please help me chose the best one

I am sourcing a tuning box from UK through a friend of mine. Can the experts please let me know which is the best one for ford fiesta.

PSI CR power shows 91 bhp for fiesta. But the petes tuning box in india shows much lesser. around 82 bhp only. What is the correct output

The correct link is:
DRAGON PERFORMANCE Mazda RX-7 and RX-8 Specialists

The one in the earlier post is only for Ford.
