digital tuning boxes 159 1.9JTD Ti

Has anyone had a go with one of these piggy back tuning boxes? If yes and if any good which ones would you recommend?

I have seen a few on ebay for about £100 prmosing about 20% power gain??

As above. Get a proper remap through a reputable tuner like AHM as suggested. A tuning box could do anything to your car and it isn't worth the risk.

Cheers,

The last power-tuning-devil box that we took off from 1.9JTDm was bought for about 100...I can show you its internals if you want...

The customer was 3 times hapier with the proper remap done by us...and the power-box thrown away.

So go get a proper remap.

AHM will do your car the way you want it
