Hi
Has anybody fitted one of these Diesel tuning/chip boxes to the 1.6 TDCI
engine,apparently they are quite easy to fit on most diesel engines
but a little tricky on the 1.6.I've been thinking of buying one and
wondered if anybody has installed one on their CMax especially the 1.6
and what they think to it.
The manufactorers claim 15% more fuel efficiency and 30% more torque
suspect a little marketing exaggeration though, saying that if only a
few more miles per gallon it may be worth fitting one.

I have a Tunit box on my 2.0TDCI and it takes 5 mins to fit.I`m pretty sure the same unit I have will fit the 1.6.Check out the Tunit web site as it will list all cars & the correct box to fit it.
I`ve had mine for 2 years now & yes it has helped both fuel & torque.I had mine on a rolling rd earlier this year & with the box set to 9 (full) the readings wereway up 200bhp & 300lbs torqe,up from 136bhp & 236 lbs torque.As for mpg I have the box set on 5 for normal use & rekon to get between 3/5 more & on a run I recently had 62mpg @ 80mph over a 180 journey (got that both ways) & on the same run a week later doing 70mph I got 70mpg & that included having the a/c on & being stationary on M5 for 15mins with engine ticking over.
So yes,they do improve the performance of the car.When I replace the Max with a newer model I can take the box off & put it on the new Max.
I don`t know about other makes of box but I would have thought they would give some improvement,otherwise they could be done under trade descriptions for not doing as advertised.
The only disadvantage is of course price.But,if you use M/ways & duelc/ways then you will get your money back on the fuel saved.

Have thought about fitting one to my 1.6TDCi 109 DPF but have heard that not all are suitable for this engine due to DPF? Any recommendations anyone? Thanks Dave

<b style="">FITTING A CHIP BOX TO A FORD FOCUS 1.6 TD[/b]

<b style="">The best way I found
takes around 1 hour to complete the job.[/b]

<b style="">The connection is on
the rear of the engine on the right hand side of the casing normally colored a red
block.[/b]

<b style="">It is impossible to
see the red block you can only see with a
mirror.[/b]

<b style="">The battery and
casing have to be removed first [/b]

<b style="">(YOU MUST HAVE YOUR RADIO CODE)[/b] <b style="">before
you start the removal of the battery.[/b]

<b style="">Remove the plastic battery
casing and battery.[/b]

<b style="">Remove the metal
battery housing 3x 10mm bolts.[/b]

<b style="">Now stand at the
front of the engine get a small mirror in your right hand and locate it at the
rear right hand side of the engine below the battery housing self.[/b]

<b style="">Look for the
reflection of the red block[/b]

<b style="">Now Get your hand
down and feel for the block to formularize yourself with the location of it. Get a piece of loop wire as in photo and hook it
over the chip you have just received to get a feel how it brakes the joint. [/b]

<b style="">After a few goes try
it on the red block on the engine .make sure you
hook it round then pull gently and the block should split into two.[/b]

<b style="">Insert the correct
ends f the new one together.[/b]

<b style="">Replace all fitting
back in reverse order[/b]

<b style="">Recode your radio[/b]

Hi

Not heard of any compatability problems with 1.6 tdci 109 only that
they are a swine to fit compared to other diesels due to the location
of the diesel pressure sensor as I have found out.
I bought one this weekend attempted to install it but hit a dead end trying to locate the sensor having stripped out numerous parts trying to locate it.I am going to have another crack this weekend thanks to the kind assistance of another Cmax club site member.I will let you know how it goes.
Regards
Richard

Hi David,what make box did you put on?
The Tunit on mine fitted to the connection below the rail (also red) on the left side looking at the engine.
It took 5 mins to connect up & 2 mins to locatew the box to engine bay with plastic ties.

Hi All

Managed to install the diesel chip box yesterday on my 1.6dtci at the
second attempt took 3.5 hours from start to finish very difficult on this engine.
Because of location of the diesel pressure sensor you are required to remove Air filter lid and Air filter to allow removal of battery and housing even then you can only see the pressure sensor plug with a torch and carefully placed mirror as advised in david3599's instructions on this posting.
Having put the car back together I immediately took it for a spin and straight away noticed the difference,it now feels like I am driving a
1.8 diesel engine very nippy and responsive to the slightest touch on
the accelerator peddle as to the MPG I'll have to give it runs out before I can determine any change in consumption.
All in all a swine of a job but worth it if you have the confidence to have a crack.
Regards
Richard

Makes intresting reading, I wonder if there is a easier way like removing the wheel and going in from behind the splashguard to get access to the back of the engine.

Evening all.
I've had my 1.6tdci for a few weeks now and have decided I need more poke pulling onto fast A roads which is exciting ... I have decided digital box rather than remap so I can flog it after I've sold the car.
The 1.6 appears to be tricky sod, so I was wondering what access to the sensor is like from underneath?
Opinions please?

Dave

The Tunit box I fitted took less than 15mins to fit & that included using plastic ties to keep the wiring out of harms way.

The 2 litre tdci is easy, I can't see why anyone would need instruction on fitting this.

The 1.6tdci is another kettle of fish ... once again, is it easier to go under, or over ??

I've just tried tunit's web site and they say it ought to be able to do it inside 30 minutes for the majority of cases. If anyone is considering why not see if they would let you see the fitting instructions so that you acan see if this is something you wish to tackle

I went down another route, DTUK's PDI box fits to each injector and takes 10 minutes to fit.
It's set on default settings at the moment ... impressive improvement already.

I got an Italian Box from Ebay on my 2008 1.8 TDCi Titanium, just £59.99 + £9 postage from Italy. Great customer service, after a problem with the fitting of the plug it took literally 2 minutes to fit. The torque is much better, has ironed out some flat spots. MPG not had it long enough to know yet, but it has made a big difference to the smoothness and pulling powe. I have reviewed it and showed fitting on Youtube.

I still have a bit of an issue at 4000 revs I get the "engine malfunction" message and the rev limiter cuts in, but it just needs an adjustment of the trim screw. Italian Box are very helpful.

Bargain price!!!
