The more expensive they are.... the better they are..ie Digital instead of Analogue resisters
Quite interesting robbo, are there any makes that you would recommend? Do they change all the parameters a remap does? Will it potentially give you the same setup as a remap?If you get a Digital one, then they are just like a remap because they change other parameters, not just over fuel the engine, like the cheap analogue ones do.
So please dont put ALL Tuning boxes in the same category..They are Chalk and Cheese!
Good thing about them, is that they are removable in a couple of minutes and you can sell them on when you sell the car..Like I did
What do you mean by a digital resistOr???The more expensive they are.... the better they are..ie Digital instead of Analogue resisters
No, ebay tuning boxes are generally a few cresistors that fool the car into altering it's fuelling, i.e making it run rich all the time by thinking it's cold etc. And will knacker your engine quickly...Sorry for my ignorance but what are we talking about by "tuning box"?
The only thing I can think of that I'm familiar with are the likes of Power Commanders for motorcycles - and these are fantastic and provide the exact options that a remap will, but are removable and can be adjusted with just a laptop.
Is a tuning box (one of the more expensive ones, at least) basically the same as this?
What do you mean?..Have you never made a spelling mistake? :facepalm:What do you mean by a digital resistOr???
These:ok so digital tuning boxes have been recommended. Are there any particular brands I should look into?
I do have experience of Tuning boxes....and remapsSOME tuning boxes can be ok (i.e. average) but please take any figures they quote you with a big 'ole pinch of salt, especially those relating to economy increases.
IMHO you will never get anywhere near a proper remap with just a tuning box, but I guess it all depends on exactly what you are looking for.
Tell me, what is it you want to see improved?
Course I have - it was the digital resistor that I was actually interested in rather than the spelling of it. Perhaps you meant a digital tuning box rather than simply a few resistors in a box? Apologies if I misunderstood your post.What do you mean?..Have you never made a spelling mistake? :facepalm:
