I've been looking for great a nice performance upgrade and have it installed but Im also thinkin about the warranty.. if it would tagged as tampered after the installation. maybe i'll try to check these performance chips and make a purchase. I would opt for both price and quality. And i just hope that the warranty would not be considered void. smile.gif


Technically it will void the warranty but because this performance chip can swith off and remove easily, so your warranty will not void cause once it is remove, it will return back to the OEM condition and settings of your car.

what about tunit?


hi AC19,

Vector & Tunit use the same concept to improve engine performance. Tunit is from UK and Vector is from Germany. It is like a Rover and BMW. A lot of owner tested a Tunit but end up with Vector due to performance and price factor.

One good thing about these plug&drive device is you can remove it easily within 10-15min by owner in casr for warranty claim. No issue for new car.

If you go for ECU reprogram, it will be hard to revert back to ori program and definately will void manufacturer warranty.

Hope these will clear our some of your doubts. Pls check out here for more info.

ECU re-mapping is NOT detectable by the service center, who only use diagnostics, thus will not void your warranty as the SC doesn't even know about it. Even if you went there and told them about it, they still wouldn't be able to detect it, as the re-map is a complete check sum.
One BAD thing about these plug and drive devices is that they improve engine performance by fooling the sensors which control fuel delivery, which means you use them at risk of engine damage, and they also do not optimize the full power potential of the engine, unlike re-mapping which does. Re-mapping will give you more power than these plug and play devices, but with complete engine safety as all of the engine sensors are functioning as normal.
The commercial advantage of the plug & play devices is that ECU re-mapping is not available for all makes of diesel engines, whereas with the tuning box, they will fit nearly all common rails with ECU's, but as you probably guessed there isn't a "one fit all" ideal.
Hope this clears up any misunderstandings.

bro tazztham, agree with you on pricing but performance is subjective since it obvious your comment tainted on tunit.

hi kaylcar,

ECU remapping is of course a next level over tuning box for commonrail engine. however, it is not as simple as what you discribed by 'fooling' the sensors. in the old days, yes, where a cheap resistor in a 'black box' to trim the sensor signal down. but these days digital tuning boxes does more than that. if does comes with firmware to monitor the signal and alter accordingly to optimize fuel injections. some of the parameters are rpm range to activate, gain etc. i just want to stress that it is not 'one size fit all' but follow type of fuel systems and manufacturers. hope that's will clear out some of your doubt about tuning box. some of those tuning boxes are even TUV certified to ensure quality level.

hi AC19,

maybe i shouldn't comment on Tunit. however, it is not my view by is a fact that a onwer did a comparison between both on dyno with same car, time and place before deciding which one.

u can always try out Tunit first n Vector later. smile_wink.gif

bro tazztham, there are a lot of product nowadays claim dyno results including Voltage Stabilizers, Nano Fuel, Nano Air Filters etc., so must take a pinch of salt. sorry, perhaps too much of the commercial spoilt the soup trink28.gif trink28.gif

try both tunit and vector, cannot afford lah unless there are dealers willing to spare test units for 1 month each... smile_cry.gif smile_cry.gif

hi AC19,

oh...u tested both before? good for you. finding a dealer willing to spare u for a mth will be difficult. considering the product selling price is only a fraction of your car price. you can't even test drive a car for a day before you buy it right?

maybe u should contact Vector dealer for a longer testing. smile_thumbup.gif
