Tuning Box for 1.4T 150

Post by KevWak » Thu Apr 11, 2019 10:55 pm

So today is my cars 3yr birthday so I decided to buy it a present. A tuning box from TDI-Tuning.

I know there will be the haters who say remap is the only way to go and these boxes can damage engines etc. And others who may say should just buy a 1.6T. But I’ve done my research and this is what I’ve decided upon.

The claim is 150PS up to 188PS and 245NM to 301NM. But exact figures aren’t important.
Economy gain should be 4-6MPG.
It comes with 7 modes varying between economy and maximum power. And an app to link via Bluetooth so you can change it whilst in transit.

Should be delivered tomorrow and I’ll probably fit it on Saturday.

Excited!

That's fair enough kev , you've done your homework now enjoy the results.
As said you will get replies about stress on the gearbox / engine but drive sensibly and you will be fine.
Keep us informed as to results - will be very interested.

So this is the graph with the claimed gains per program. Can’t really see the point of having 7 separate ones but I guess they cater for everyone’s tastes. I will probably only switch between 1 and 7. And turn it off before the Mrs drives it! :lol:

Will let you know performance wise once it’s on. And give it a week or two before I comment on MPG.

Does this mean you don’t have to use sports mode anymore?

I’ll let you know!

But 185bhp + sport mode will be tyre shredding in 1st and possibly 2nd.

Be great for overtaking though.

I had a conversation a few months ago with a guy who has a 1.6T and he likes his sport button.

He replaces his front tyres every 10,000 miles.

As a comparison mine lasted 27,000.

Does that count?

27k on a set of fronts? Best I've ever had on any car is 18k and that was a 1.2 Fiesta.

Would be nice of the map was less aggressive than standard in 1st gear.
