Had it installed in my 2011 fortuner and the box malfunctioned on a highway run from delhi to dehradoon, while i was doing triple digit speeds, i just bless my stars it dint happen when i was overtaking, the car just lost all power and i pulled over to the side of the road, called a flatbed crane and towed it to toyota meerut he pulled the box out connected oem wiring and it fired up in half a crank ,ran a diagnostic chk and said in my years at toyota havent seen a fortuner breakdown yours would have been the first, but then again you should not have fidgeted around with it!

After this incident have stayed away from piggy back ecu's and always gone for a remap, running a remap on my endeavour as well as the scorpio and love it way way better then the rd boxes a remapped diesel wont ever disappear in a cloud of diesel fart ever

Straight facts A properly remapped turbo diesel won't spit out thick black smoke! Before I went for the remap, did some research and compared remaps vs tuning box and concluded that a good remap is always better than the tuning box, here the stress is on the word 'good'! I haven't seen black smoke from my car even under heavy engine load.

Thats exactly what i meant a good remap is anyday better then a tuning box! Most tuning boxes will dump more fuel resulting in thick smoke under hard accelaration, i am running quantum remaps on both my diesels and absolutely love it

Hello,

I have 2017 Hyundai Creta Diesel SX+ Auto. I am contemplating getting DieselTRONIC box for it.

Being a novice in this topic I need some guidance from experts
- Is it suitable for automatic cars and specifically for Creta auto
- Any feedback from someone who has fitted it on Creta
- Any precautions to be taken after fitting Dieseltronic box
- Any dealer presence in Pune?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Folks,

Have a linea MJD 1.3 Diesel (post 2012 model), clocked 65K kilometres so far on it. I am not happy with the pickup, feels sluggish when fully loaded. Should i go for a remap? I contacted blackbox performance and they are quoting BHP increase of 27% (from stock 90 to 117) and 22% increase in torque (stock 209nm to 255nm). Total cost will be 20K.

Is this a good deal and should i go for it?

Hi Guys,

It has been a week since I got my RD dual channel installed on my 2018 Brezza Zdi+ clocked 18k. Performance has increased and response is very smooth.

Within a day ordered and installed BMC filter. Must say, with BMC filter there has been a huge difference and I can feel the kick.

So far, I have been driving in P2 mode only.

Got the device installed from a dealer in Delhi for 24k and BMC filter for 6.2k. Device was installed at home and the BMC filter was DIY. Pretty simple and clean installation.

MRP for RD is 26k and BMC 6990.

FE - That's the last one on my list and will check it later. Right now just want to enjoy that extra power.

Am bit scared after reading a few reviews of Fortuner owner dumping the box as the injectors misfired on highways. Will make sure that I switch the box to S or E mode on highways / long drive.

Next on my list is XADO Atomic metal conditioner and Liqui Moly - LMSD Super Diesel Additive. Need advise if I should add these to the engine oil & fuel.

Hi. I am confused whether to go in for single channel or dual channel Dieseltronic for my 2017 XUV 500 W10 Manual. The folks at Racedynamics advised me to go in for single channel. Any views on this?

Not sure why they have recommended the single-channel but I feel for better control and performance, it is best if the dual-channel model is selected for your XUV 5OO.

Alternatively, you can look for getting a remap too, which should be priced similar to what the RD box is priced at. It can be tuned as per how you want it to be.

I would suggest go for a remap than a tuning box. As a user of the RD dual channel tuning box on my i20 for the past 1 Lakh plus kms, there are some limitations I faced. It is difficult to get a smooth midrange torque curve from the tuning box. Mind you it is mainly based on the butt dyno feedback over 1 lakh kms of driving. The torque wave, when it hits, is addictive and I do enjoy it. One more drawback is that the engine clatter is bad in P2 mode. Especially when you cross 2300 RPM, the engine sounds too coarse and throaty. The Hyundai diesel mills are one of the most refined out in the market. In P2 mode, I feel like someone put a VW diesel engine that sounds like a tractor under the hood. The power increase over stock is good in P2 mode and I do enjoy the P2 mode when on highways with full load of people+luggage in the car. Power is always on tap and makes overtaking a breeze. P1 is good enough for City and normal highway driving.

With remap, you get best of both refinement and power increase. There is lot more room to tweak the settings with a remap than a tuning box.
