    Question Diesel Torque chip

    Hi Guys.

    Has anyone tried Diesel Torques power box? What is your experience with? Any other chip/remap I should look at?
    I am toying with the idea to get it for a 2006 3.2DiD Pajero.

    Thanks!

    I have a 2.5 DID Triton. I tried the diesel torque box on my Triton, but was not very happy with it, as it could not produce the advertised gain in power. We tried 3 different boxes while the vehicle was on the Dino, but to no avail.
    These boxes are all preset before installation and very easy to plug in with three power settings and cheaper than the Dastec plug.You buy the plug and then you have to arrange a Dino at your cost.My personal opinion is that this plug can cause damage to your vehicle as it probably only adjusts the fuel.
    Gough Cooper in Brackenfell installed a Dastec plug to the Trition and the engine was tuned to optimal power and Torque .I have been using this for the past two years and it is still working 100%.Power/Torque on the wheels before plug 102.9kw@3671 rpm/332Nm@2280rpm( Dealer gives 100kw/314Nm mine was more).After plug was installed 109.1kw@4562rpm/375Nm@2178rpm.The gain in power has deffinitely helped with fuel consumption about 12km/l @ 100km.I can recommend this plug. Hope this helps you.

    Is it worth the expense for 7KW?

    Don't know how true it is but I heard that all the spirit of Africa 2.5 tritons were fitted with diesel torque chips.

    Yes it was worth it .
    I gained 9kw,61Nm torque and at least 2km/l better consumtion.
    The torque is where the big difference comes in .

    Hi guys
    In response to Clyde’s earlier comment, yes it is true that the 2.5 Tritons and a number of 3.2 Pajero’s on the Spirit Of Africa Tour all had the POWERBOX’s installed, a total of 22 vehicles.
    And in response to Potkon, the product that was tried on your Triton at the Dyno is no longer supported by Germany and has been replaced by a newer technology product and these were the ones that were trialed at the Spirit Of Africa.
    The Diesel Torque product has been voted best in market for these vehicles.

    Does the chip work also with the 3.2 DiD engine from 2004 and before ? I was told, the generations prior to the common rail engine don't work with a chip That's why I don't have one in my Pajero....only in the BMW.

    I had a Diesel Torque chip installed on my 2.5DID Triton 2 weeks ago. I am happy with the gains. 8kw and 25nm gain also eliminated the turbo lag the the 2.5 has.

    Ek het Diesel Torque op my 2.5 Triton en 2008 Pajero en is heel teverede. 30nm meer torque op altwee en ek dink ±11kw meer. Die groot verskil is die torque. Jy voel dit!

    I fitted the Diesel Torque chip 2 years ago to my 2.5 and have only had an issue with my 2 way radio transmissions sending the vehicle into limp mode. Craig from Diesel torque remapped a chip specifically to cancel this out and since then no problems. You can look at the attached sheet for the figures.

    Note the chip is the same for the 2.5 and 3.2 Triton as well ass the 3.2 Pajero.

    The chip has 4 base settings and 7 fine tune settings per base i.e. 28 possible tuning positions. My preference is base setting 3 with +1.
