Tuning boxes for diesel engines work primarily by manipulating the fuel pressure signal that goes to the ECU from the fuel rail pressure sensor.The graph below shows fuel pressure against expected engine torque and engine rpm for an example engine.
Between remapping to “Stage 1” and a tuning box, the difference in power is small if there is any difference at all. Stage 1 remapping will usually involve increasing the boost pressure slightly which is exactly what a tuning box does.
More and more #dieseltuning boxes are adjustable. The adjustability allows the customer to increase the power of the engine over and above the standard settings of the #tuningbox. While this is in theory a good thing, the customer needs to understand the consequences of changing to the settings of their […]
Diesel tuning in general is much more straightforward. More fuel equals more power.#dieseltuning #chiptuning Diesel chip tuning boxes and diesel tuning in general create more power by increasing the amount of fuel injected into the engine. However when the fuel is injected into the engine it needs to be done […]
