pbox

  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, Recently got myself a pbox for my 156 2.4jtd and have already fitted it, but have not really noticed any difference. I connected battery positive and negative, there was no white wire for throttle reference, not even at the plug end of the loom which goes into the pbox, just a grey one...

    I have a used P-box for sale in Classifieds, link below. Alfa Romeo Classifieds - Auctions - Tuning - Powered by PhotoPost Classifieds Unfortunatelly Steinbauer cannot reprogram it to fit my new car so I have to sell it. If anyone is interested please pm me. Rgds G.

    Hi all Does anyone know how to fit a tuning box to 159. I just bought a P-Box from another AO member and have no idea about fitting this box. Any help will be appreciated Thank in advance :thumbs:

    Hi, I've just sold my 2.4JTDM Brera & have the diesel tuning box going spare if anyone wants to throw me a bid at it. Thought I'd give the enthusiasts first refusal :)

    Now that I have some spare shillings I want to explore the power potential of my engine. Before I part with said shillings I need help and constructive critisism with regard to the path I take........ re-map or Steinbaur P Box, Tunit etc. Any ideas people????

    My insurance company has informed me that they would not cover me if I fit a Steinbauer P-Box. I have been calling around and quotes are £400 higher with the box fitted. Surely this is extortionet for an extra 34hp?

    Finally got the car on some rollers today to find out just how many horses and torque's it had, the quoted gain for this "Box" is 252bhp and 354 Ibs/ft. http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c24/jbsmith1/File0019smudge.jpg well pleased with the results. :thumbs: Edit update!: Well here we are 3...

    steinbauer p-box for 2.4jtd 159 dont know if anyones interested but i can get one for £450 inc delivery? takes it up to about 250bhp 400nm and comes with 3 years warranty ok not as good as a remap but given the DPF issues perhaps a safer bet? Marc

    dont know if anyones interested but i can get one for £450 inc delivery? takes it up to about 250bhp 400nm and comes with 3 years warranty ok not as good as a full remap but the DPF issue / warranty concerns me - if it didnt have DPF's i'd remap tomorrow! but it does... anyone interested? can...

    I know this has been discussed before but I can't find a comparison. I know both increase power but I'm looking for how they do it. I had heard (don't know where) that the PBox just increases the rail preasure where as a remap addresses the entire induction system. I am looking to do...

    AutoLusso sell and install the Steinbauer P-Box, which increases the BHP of the diesel engines - 150 to 180, or 210 to 250. Anyone got any thoughts on this - is it worth the money (£500). I had to get the 1.9 for company car tax reasons (Co2 emisisons on the 2.4 are way too high adding £150 per...

    When trawling the net looking at JTD tuning options I came across a reference to Alfa themselves commissioning a tuning box. Then I read that the Ducati 147 has 20BHP available with a sport switch on the dash. This does not sound like the power comes from a remap to me - so is that switch...

    I collected my GT Q2 from Autolusso a couple of weeks ago and I can honestly say it is the most beautiful car I have ever owned, and there have been a few! There was a good few months wait and I am furiously impatient but it was so worth the wait when I received the magic call from Autolusso...

    Hi am thinking about getting a new 1.9 Jtdm GT Q2 with a P-box - anyone have feedback on whether this is a good plan

    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with the above? A certain non-franchised Alfa supplier states that these systems are exclusively available through them in the UK. However, a quick search on the internet has produced a number of other companies that claim to be distributors...

    Just been offered this kit to try on the GT and wondered if any of our European posters have any experience with it. It offers a 20 % enhancement to power and torque and comes with a 3 year guarantee against any damage to engine/gearbox. This is not a re-map as such but a performance "box"...
