any of you guys tried one of those plug in 'performance' units off fleabay ?

with the 16 inch wheels i am finding the towing a little taxing as it appears the gearbox ratios/turbo lag etc are bang on 50mph and just where i need the little extra torque.

they claim some impressive gains i guess through altering the fueling signal.

Its basicly just a Envy mod (see tdiclub forums) in a plug and play format, personally i wouldn't bother. I have thought about having one of THESE soldered into my ecu and plugging THIS into it. They have good feeback and it all seems legit. In theory it should do the job much better but the socket would have to be professionally fitted to the ecu by an electrical repair shop or similar to save damage to the unit.

so i got me one of these

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=160467643726

fitted in minutes and appears to have transformed the engine performance, loads more power for less throttle - will try to get the caravan on the back to try it this weekend but may have to wait till RTTH for a proper run.

best bit is turning the little screw to fine tune - made one hell of a raw with lots of smoke when i turned it up too far but went like a bat out of hell

got 30 mpg with the caravan on the back on a run to Whitby - but i never measured it before so nothing to compare.

the power is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing and it just sits at 60 mph up hill or into a headwind which it never did before. also noticed that my foot is only lightly touching the pedal rather than being half way down. when its solo it goes like stink compared to the original conversion.

best bit is i can take it off so i need to find me a rolling road that will do a before and after to get a true comparision, but so far its been 50 well spent.

yeah you can get some smoke but the one i bought allows you to fine tune.

when you get it the seller has pre set it. when i fitted mine it did nothing so he advised to turn the screw 1 to the left, still nothing so turned another turn - bloody hell !!! smoke on tick over and barking like a V8 when you hit the throttle !! turned it back half and all good.

then whilst on the whitby run the folks behind commented on the smoke when under heavy load ( uphill or leaving junctions ) so turned it back another quarter and all seems good plenty of power and no smoke.

these things appear to be well tested and hundreds of miles have been covered by plenty on the tdi forum so compared to the 300+ custom remap i think it is money well spent so far.
