What is a Tuning Box?
So what exactly is a Tuning Box? To put it simply, it’s an easy-to-install device that can be incorporated into your engine bay to boost your engine’s power, torque and fuel efficiency.
All of our Diesel and Petrol tuning boxes connect securely to your engine and work in parallel with your Engine Control Unit (ECU). Our products adjust and streamline the engine’s fuel injection parameters, engine timing, boost pressure and quantity of fuel added, to significantly improve overall performance.
Tuning boxes typically plug straight into the engine’s existing wiring structure, so all you will need to install your new purchase are some very basic tools such as a screwdriver. There is no wire cutting involved, as the system connects directly into your existing wiring. We make it as easy as possible for our customers to install our systems by providing them with comprehensive, easy to follow pictorial English (other languages also available) installation instructions and offer a dedicated customer support service that provides technical advice around the clock. All of our tuning boxes also come with a full 30 day money back guarantee and include a 3 year warranty for your complete peace of mind.
Why do Manufacturers De-Tune their Vehicles?
Vehicles are operated differently with multiple driving styles and requirements. Many factors like fuel quality, fuel and air filter cleanliness, air temperatures, age of engine and many other factors can determine the level of output of the engine. The challenge for car manufacturers is to ensure that their vehicles are able to operate regardless of the conditions and environments in which they are used. The last thing manufactures want is vehicles being returned under warrantee, due to a dirty filter or low quality fuel, to reset a warning check light. For this reason they’ll factor a large degree of tolerance into the engine output to prevent these visits back to the dealerships. Solution: De-Tune the power output to a level so the vehicle will operate under most conditions without issues. This approach leaves ample room for us to tap into the engine’s hidden power capabilities and enable your vehicle to better to suit your requirements without reducing reliability.
What is different about our Tuning Systems?
There has been much talk of the circulation of a number of low-quality diesel tuning boxes in recent years, and the manufacturers of these inferior products have inadvertently given our industry a bad name. These simplistic devices in question will only send out static signals to the engine, which often results in unpredictable and uncontrollable engine behavior. You can rest assured that our Tuning products are tuning boxes with safe, genuine electronic circuit systems and high performance micro-processors. Our Digital Tuning Boxes are loaded with vehicle specific mapping not a generic “One Map Fits All” type. With the customer in-mind, all of our systems are delivered to the customer pre-configured to achieve the perfect blend of additional Power, Torque and Fuel Efficiency. However if the customer has a desire to select an alternative performance setting, all of our products are exceptionally easy to adjust.
