After last ECU update it turns out that my ECU is now PASSWORD PROTECTED, so I cannot map my ECU any more! I turned my attention to tdi-tuning. They do tuning boxes, claiming 205bhp/413nM torque. Bought it today, will give you my feedback asap. Despite the name, the do all sort of tunes.

Hi all,

Once you get the latest update for your diesel which is 17r058 your ecu is locked. I wanted to get mine superchipped yesterday they could not get access to read the file.

I would not recommend box since the dpf regen is problematic even with the stock engine.

Hi Mate!
What do you specifically mean by "problematic". Sensors on cat and dpf are not affected so in worst case scenario dpf cleaning procedure will happen more often, I guess. If you have more insight in the matter, please share.

Thanks,
Luke

Hi Luke,

For an actual remapping session you can specify whatever variable vs rpm or engine load. When it comes to box and its variants you generally push the rail pressure up.

Dpf still thinks you run your car with oem tune when you use box. With an actual remapping session you are free to alter the regen strategy.

Cheers

Alper

: ] that is the problem that the engine with original calibration is running with late injection timing and low exhaust temps to save the raw NOX exhaust emissions and there are rare self regenerations in the DPF .. so then the DPF is collecting the suit for 900-1000km and then the regeneration is started from the ECU …

Hi, guys... I just ordered an OBD2 ver.3 chip for my Astra K 1.4 150ps from chippower24 here:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/OBD2-Boitier-A ... 9I&vxp=mtr

Anybody tried this? Or any thoughts on how it may go... It will arrive on Monday and I will write some feedback if anybody is interested.
