      Race dynamics Tuning chip for Vista

      I am considering investing in a RD DieselTronic tuning chip for my Vista QJD. This mod is supposedly good for improving driveability / performance and/or FE . Does any one have any experience of using this or something similar like pete's on the Vista ?

      I have another question for all those using this chip ( on any other vehicle ) . Is it possible for the TASS to detect that an ECU mod has been used , even if one removes the tuning chip ?

      I don't recommend running the RD box in FE mode. It makes the car feel terrible. Definitely not good for the engine. The performance modes are decent.

      Addedly, it gives you the convenience of switching modes on the fly.

      And if the box throws any errors they should be able to figure out. No tuning box or remap is undetectable. It all depends on how in depth the service guys are willing to go to dishonour warranty claims.

      mclaren1885: Have you tried or know any 1 using it on a vista?
      I heard that Race dynamics are coming up with version 2 of the chip which directly connects to the fuel line and turbo line without remapping.This 1 is supposedly undetectable as there is no remap involved. Wonder if this would be a better option?

      Also I'm curious how do Tass guys exactly check if a tuning chip has been used ?

      No, I doubt anyone I know has specifically used it on a Vista.

      But since they share the same Fiat engine as the Swift and Punto driving any of these cars should give you a fair idea.

      And no tuning box is undetectable. If you've been told so, then it's just marketing talk. Manufacturers use very expensive OBD readers to see all the data they want.

      There is a sticky thread about tuning boxes and remaps by Techie in the tech talk section of the forum. I suggest you read that thread to get an idea.
