As a ex-VVOC'er I got a 2nd hand one from eBay for £40 posted, the guy I got it from paid £60 new, so £100 doesn't sound far off the mark, thing I would say is there might be more 2.2d's on the road than 1.9 vectra/astra's ?
Remaps can be cheaper option and better option.Its just cost me £ 200. Are you suggesting i bin it ?
Most experienced members on here (and other car forums) seem to recommend a remap over a tuning box, which in some cases can apparently do more harm than good. But, as ever on the internet, opinions vary. Have a look at this link:Arre you suggesting i bin something i have just spent £ 200 on then ? Is this based on a careful comparison of the two methods or something you have heard in a pub ?
As in post #7Is this based on a careful comparison of the two methods or something you have heard in a pub ?
You ask a question, and then complain about the answers. Some people are saying they wouldnt have got a tuning box, they would get a remap.Waking up this old thread. Ive just bought a TDI Tuning box for my 2.2 but not had dry enough weather to fit it yet . Anyone had experience of one of these ?
Exactly what I said in Post #14.Why not give the guy a break and explain why a remap is better than a tuning box.
A tuning box is basically an adjustable generic map, where each adjustable stage has its own set parameters.
A remap is a car specific map, where the map is optimised for the specific engine that's been worked on. This allows for better power and torque curves through the rev range, which means the engine revs more freely while giving much more fluid power delivery.
A remap can be done on a rolling road to get the maximum gains from the engine and gearbox.
Professional car tuners use a rolling road remap which tells you all you should need to know ;-).
