Coming from the 30 TFSI 116 bhp (Audi A1), I wanted to move up a gear by offering myself an almost new 150 bhp A3 1.5 TFSI. What a disappointment! My mechanic explained to me that the difference in acceleration was mainly due to the fact that I had changed from a 3-cylinder to a 4-cylinder and that the A3 was heavier than the A1, but that obviously didn't solve the problem. While doing some research, I quickly came across your box-unit and bought it. I have been driving it for almost 6 months now and I must tell you that I am very happy with it! I have finally found a few good trade-ins worthy of the name. Thank you P-Tronic!
Gustav O., Hamar
I won't hide the fact that the purchase of the box-unit for my Alfa Romeo Stelvio Q4 280 bhp was a whim. The engine is very powerful and gives me a lot of satisfaction. But you know how it goes. 280 hp is good. But the 344 bhp you are announcing is even better! So I let myself be tempted and I don't regret it! Not only has the adapted power become unbelievable, but the torque input makes me forget that I'm driving a suv. I can't thank my friend Sergio enough for talking to me about you.
Karl G., Augsbourg
After having had some original electronic problems fixed by my dealer, I was finally able to take advantage of my Renault Clio 1.3 TCE 130 bhp but I quickly had to face the facts: its too low torque penalises its re-launches. On the advice of a friend, I bought your box-unit even though I was quite sceptical. Honestly: it's the best !!! My Clio has become a real sports car. The box is also very well calibrated to work with the EDC box, which was one of my initial fears. What's more, I've lowered my fuel consumption to 6.1 l/100 km. So I'm very satisfied with the tuning box.
Régis, A. Saint-Gall
I installed a P-tronic box on a Mercedes E220 cdi 143 bhp. The car works really well. It's a fighter plane! I get more engine torque and above all a reduced diesel consumption of nearly a litre. I have absolutely no regrets about buying this tip-top product. Thanks to the P-tronic team, you are real pros.
Alain L, Besançon
I have three main positive points following the installation of the P-Tronic tuning box on my Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD 250 bhp. 1/ The starting is more incisive with an immediate response to acceleration 2/ I have more engine flexibility at low revs (under 1500 rpm) 3/ I notice a significant gain in consumption: the box allows me to go from 11.3l to 9.6l/100 km.
Claude B., Guadeloupe
Coming from a 140 hp TDI I was very happy with, I naively thought that this TSI 150 would take my golf7 into another dimension. Big mistake. I guess I don't have to explain to you how flat this little 1.5 is. Well, WAS flat because with your chip, it's really really better. I would be curious to compare with a reprog but the fact that the box intervenes at the intake and camshaft level certainly contributes to the comparable efficiency you can see in the numbers. Can you confirm? In any case, the sensations are there! There is no comparison with the other brand's box I bought before yours, which was much cheaper but which was a real scam !!!
I bought your box-unit to reduce the fuel consumption of my Ranger 3.2 TDCI. I was expecting better but I went from 10.5 l to about 9 l anyway. As I make 30.000 per year, I will have amortized it in a little more than a year, which is not bad.
Emile C., Arlon
I feel great sensations with your tuning box on my Toyota Hilux 2.4D that I found very underpowered of origin. I used to have a DMax that was already weak but the Hilux 2.4 is worse. I opted for theHilux which I find more comfortable than the competing pick-ups I tested. I had heard that it might be coming out soon in 2.8 but since I had to decide quickly, I bought the 2.4 D anyway. Glad I found the solution to "wake him up". With the 200 hp and 500 Nm of the box, it's not the same anymore!
Emile S., Agen
The tuning box compensates for the lack of engine power of my VW Polo 2.0 GTI 200 hp, especially at high rpm. I now have the real GTI feeling! I was a little worried that the box would disrupt the operation of the DSG gearbox, but it's fine. On the other hand, I don't see a significant decrease in consumption, but it's true that I drive hard…
Thierry S. Le Touquet
I've been driving a Toyota Hilux for as long as I can remember. I hadn't only heard good things about the latest version (with the 2.4 D4D 150 CV) but I didn't want to change my habits. Big mistake! Soft engine, lack of fishing, a cat. I spoke to my dealer who confirmed that the problem was raised by many users and he advised me your box. He installed it for me and the difference is obvious. I feel like I've changed my engine. Even the automatic gearbox is more responsive. It's great!
Hervé S, Fleurus
A very significant difference since the installation of the box on my Audi A3 35 TFSI. Thank you for your seriousness and see you in 4 years for my next vehicle!
Demir G, Zadar
What a difference on the Hilux VIII 150 hp! Your performance box more than compensates for the weight gain of the model and especially for the drop in power of the original model. Finally, I'm getting the same feeling in my pick-up and reasonable fuel consumption, thank you.
Steve H., Blois
I chose the Tucscon 1.6 turbo petrol because I think it has the best specification in technical terms. After 200 km, I realised the small four-cylinder engine doesn't allow for much responsiveness. I had to keep the Sport function on all the time to get enough power, but even then only at high revs. I was having to fill up all the time. I found the solution with your tuning box, which has reconciled me to my car. Excellent acceleration and power at all engine speeds. Though the price initially put me off, I quickly forgot the investment, I'm so pleased with it. Fuel consumption is back below 9L.
Graig J (Glasgow, Scotland)
For budget reasons, I chose the BMW X5 Xdrive 45e rather than the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid. To get closer to the performance of the Cayenne, I added one of your tuning boxes to the engine, because I know you are one of the best tuning shops for BMW, even for the newer engines. Once fitted, accelerating gives the roundness of a bigger engine. With the 8-speed ZF gearbox, there is no loss of driveability and consumption now reaches the figures claimed by the manufacturer. Thank you!
Harry W, Perth (Australia)
With my new BMW 320i of 170hp, never again a TurboDiesel. Thanks to this petrol engine equipped with my P-Tronic box, it offers a remarkable thrust up to 7000T without ever vibrating. It grows well. We arrive very quickly at 100 km/h. The noise of the 4-cylinder with sport sound is terrible. The fuel consumption is reduced by 1.5 l. It's a real pleasure!
Alain G., Montbrison
II give my following the placement of your additional box-unit in my Polo 2.0 GTI 200 hp. I would like to point out that I mainly bought it following the advice of your sales representative who confirmed to me that it would correct the flaws of the DSG gearbox. I must say that I am very happy. The box obviously does not change the DSG's gear ratio, but the extra HP and Nm allow faster revs and therefore more rhythmic gear changes. I would also like to point out that the engine has more fishing beyond 4500 rpm. That's really good.
Seb. I., Tours
No regrets, quite the opposite – my Octavia 1.4 TSI combined with the P-Tronic tuning box is far better than I expected. It works great at all engine speeds! The smoothness is surprising (torque from 1400 rpm), giving the enjoyable sensation of pushing pleasantly firmly all the time with no suddenness. Simple to fit. Just follow the instructions (colour manual in several languages). I contacted them twice. I talked to Michel, who was very responsive.
Carlo (Florence, Italy)
Thank-you. I had not connected one of the plugs properly and next time it did "Click". All is now well and the unit performs brilliantly!
Tim M., England
I have purchased one of your units several months ago. It is a fantastic piece of kit.
Steve P., England
Hi! Just a short note. For anybody who owns a BMW X6 x-drive 35d (2010): do not hesitate, get this box, drive away with it and you\'ll be absolutely impressed!! The X-tra performance, the X-tra strength, the sound... WOW!
Roland S., Mersin, Turkey
I was received the products yesterday. Thanks for your kind co-operation. Have a nice day!
Deon M., Hong-Kong
To all at P-TRONIC ! We would like to thankyou for the great service in delivering my order! It arrived yesterday and I am very impressed with the speed it took to get here ! I installed it immediately and took my Mercedes Sprinter 213 CDI on a short run, on my familiar roads, and noticed the difference in the power up a grade that I would normally manage in topbut I had power to spare ! So far I am VERY impressed !
Denis H., Ocean Shore, Australia
I want to thank you for the good support and delivery of my P-Tronic. I am extremely pleased with the result. Originally my car always lost power at 2000 rpm, my airco wasn't working good and accelerating was hell, after the installation of the box, which was quit simple all those problems got solved. No more power lost, excellent cooling of airco, and a joy the accelerate. I told the story to my garage and they had to admit that they could not solve the problem and that after the installation of the box the problems are solved... You guys helped me a lot !!! THnx again,
Stefan C., Belgium
I cover around 80,000 km per year in my Saab 9.3 and I bought the P-Tronic because I was told it would enable me to make fuel savings. I installed it myself without problem, and after 6 months (41,000 km) it had already paid for itself. And that's without even mentioning the increase in power. From 150 to 194 bhp. Phenomenal!
Franck H., Ostend
I went from a VW polo 1.9 tdi 100 bhp, to this Golf 1.9 tdi 90 bhp. Comparing the two, the engine of the 90 version is much too dusty and noisy. I went through P-Tronic's external engine reprogramming (box-unit). With the gain in torque and nervousness (just what is needed), I feel more power than on my BMW 1 120D which has 177 bhp.
The equipment is reliable and I haven't had any problems.
Peter D. (Hasselt)
Your after-sales service is of remarkable quality. I will not hesitate to come back to you for further products, and I will certainly recommend you to my friends. Regards,
Bruno P., Dole
Following our telephone conversation of today, could you tell me how to proceed in order to send back to you the defective box-unit for my BMW 525d Touring e61 10/2006? (...) ?
First of all I would like to thank you for the professionalism of your after-sales service. You enhance the brand image of the product and the company. Kindest regards.
Koen S., Apeldoorn
With your tuning box, my Toyota RAV4 2.0 D4D has increased to 142hp and 320Nm of torque and I can tell you that it's pushing very hard and all this without losing the linearity of the engine. There is nothing changed in the turbo pressure, it's just the mixture that is modified so that my dealer continues to guarantee my vehicle. I am so satisfied that I directly placed a box on my little Yaris before it even leaves the Toyota garage.
doc_mike, read on rav4team.com/forum.
Super box-unit! I put it in my VW Bora 1.9 TDI 3 months ago. At the beginning, I really pushed it. But then I calmed down. Now I use about 1 litre less fuel.
Stijn P., Hasselt.
I had planned to change my car to tow my heavy caravan without overheating problems. A friend told me about you and I bought a chip. I have just come back from holidays and I can tell you that your thing works 100%! I no longer have my foot permanently on the floor, the engine heats less and seems to turn over more smoothly. How does this happen?
Patrick G, Jette.
The top speed doesn't change (on Hyundai i30), but you can still feel the difference in acceleration.
Guillaume S., Paris.
Hello. My Alfa Romeo 159 2.0 JTDM 170 pk consumes less since I have been driving with your kit. And it drives better.
Philippe T., Tienen
Fantastic difference on my Peugeot Expert HDi with my trailer. Especially on hills.
Eric W. Liège.
I just want to tell you that I bought a box-unit four years ago, and I've done more than 100,000 km with it. You can get one ready for my new Golf VII 1.6 TDI 105 hp, which is waiting for me at my dealer.
Stéphane R., Brussels.
Penalized by the all-wheel drive and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, my Hyundai Kona's 1.6 T-GDI 177 bhp seemed a bit on the chopping block. Today, thanks to your powerbox, it's much more toned. It's also less noisy since I have to pull less in the gears. I hesitated for a while because of the price of your box but today I can confirm that the investment is worth it.
Selim P-Q, Forli
I received the box for my Ranger Wildtrack 2.0 biturbo 213 hp. Very simple connection of the different connectors thanks to your illustrated instructions and famous difference in performance compared to the original. I didn't expect to be able to gain so much torque. This is very useful in my very hilly region! Thank you!
Orst M., Zirl
With the P-Tronic box-unit I finally get the performance I was hoping for when I bought this Dacia Duster TCE 150 bhp. It fills in the gaps at low revs and makes it possible to take better advantage of an acceleration range that is already long at the base. It also compensates for the length of the 6-speed gearbox's ratios by giving them more power. In short, this tuning box is for me the essential complement to really enjoy my Duster. Thanks to you!
Emilio S., Kolding
The box is super efficient on my Claas Ares 816 156 hp tractor. I have more torque at low revs, no dip in acceleration when changing gears and lower fuel consumption. In short, all positive things! The quality of the booster is really superior to a competitor's box that I installed on another of my tractors. I recommend the P-TRONIC brand.
Laurent B, Simencourt
The 0.9 TCE 90 of the Clio is much more vigorous with your box-unit. Personally, I especially appreciate the extra torque which no longer forces me to downshift to get out of a corner or to keep my speed on hills. I'd say that's what he was missing the most.
Frédéric B., Carcassonne
I find that the Golf 7 1.5 TSI 150 hp has the behaviour of a turbo diesel. On the one hand, it's nice to have torque in low revs (even if it's not huge) but I think we've lost the fun side of the gasoline engine and this VW is too linear. With your box, I found the sensations of a gasoline engine : more willing and better at high revs.
Felix S, Madrid
Thank you for turning my Polo 2.0 GTI into a rocket! The performances are terrible! Glad to have opted for your box rather than the remapping my cousin advised me to do, especially since I will be able to reuse it on my next GTI.
Steve O. Segovia
I'm happy with my gearbox which largely erases the big flaw of the Seat Leon TSI 150 bhp: the length of its gear ratios. With the addition of power and torque, my Leon has certainly not become a warrior but it is much more pleasant to drive and safer. By the way, I'm going to send you a customer: my brother-in-law has the same engine as me on his Golf.
Sebastián S., Teruel
I love my Ranger Raptor 2.0 biturbo but I was hoping for performance in line with its look. However, in use, the 213 hp 2.0 is just enough... A friend of mine advised me to use your box and I must admit that it completely changes the game in terms of performance! Now, I always keep a reserve of torque and power, which probably also explains why the engine is less noisy. The fact that the box works on all 6 driving modes is also very appreciable. That's it, I wanted to give my testimonial. Have a nice day.
Cédric V., Montpellier
As a retired sales representative, I decided to change my Renault Clio Diesel for a new petrol version, the 0.9 TCE. Knowing that the power of this one is limited to 90 hp and 135 Nm of torque, my choice was not easy. Thanks to your P-Tronic system, I found an engine with a lot of torque, flexible and really pleasant to drive. Thank you to the whole P-Tronic team! PS: I recommended your site to my brother-in-law.
Francis F., Chatenay Malabry (France)
The engine is probably very reliable, but my Clio 1.5 dCi with 85 hp lacks punch when overtaking and staying in the left-hand lane on the motorway. Adding the P-Tronic tuning box has made it more responsive and easier to handle. Fitted after 70,000 km, it now totals nearly 400,000 km and I am more than satisfied with my investment.
Tom U, Baden (Austria)
Hello, I hesitated for a long time to put a box in my Ranger. 200 hp is already a big thing but I was curious to see how far my 3.2 could go. Honestly, it's incredible. I'm discovering a new vehicle. It's as if it's lightened by the box, so much power and torque is enormous. I should have decided earlier ;-) Have a nice day!
Pierre H., Metz
When I bought a Kia Cee'd GT, I was expecting a real racing beast. Despite its 204 hp and some flexibility, it didn't offer all the feeling I was hoping for. Especially at low revs. The maximum torque is supposed to come out at 1750 rpm but you have to get past 3300 to really enjoy it. So I bought a P-Tronic box-unit and I don't regret it. The input is there, the throttle response is much more frank and I finally have the feeling that I'm using the full potential of my car! Thank you for your work.
Cédric J., Thun (Switzerland)
I am a VW customer, and this is my first Seat. I drive less than 15,000 km/year. I chose this little 1.4 petrol turbo with 150 hp. My first thought was that the engine is much nicer than my previous 1.6 TDI. I had tested the 1.4 in an Audi Q2 and I got the impression that they had changed the engine mapping in my Leon. It's much too linear for my taste. I'm 62 and I wanted some fun when I bought this car. By adding a P-Tronic external reprogrammer (my fourth), my car has become much more agile and alert. The DSG gearbox is perfect. I miss the paddles. Conclusion: my TSI with the P-Tronic is the choice for a real sports car!
Vinko K, Dubrovnik (Croatia)
Hello, thanks first of all to P-Tronic, who deserve to be better known. Their external reprogramming brought my consumption down from over 10L/100 to 8. The engine responds perfectly at low and high revs. The operating range is very wide. I get a lot of pleasure from my Fiat Bravo petrol 1.4 T-Jet 120. Acceleration is very efficient and standing starts leave the show-offs in their Golf TDIs behind!
Joakim (Drammen, Norway)
I was looking for an alternative to all-electric and diesel vehicles. The solution was the BMW hybrid. I put the pleasure of the six-cylinder roar to one side and chose the 330e… Despite the "Max eDrive" mode, I wanted more performance (I used to have an M4). I bought the tuning box for my engine on your website. I am satisfied, because it does its job: 0 to 100 km/h in 5.1 s. The sensation of the extra weight of the batteries has completely disappeared, especially when entering a corner. It gives me a lot of pleasure at all speeds.
Joshua T, Miami (USA)
I bought a box-unit before leaving for my holidays because I only have a 90 bhp TDI (VW Golf VI 1.6) and I had to leave heavily loaded. I didn't recognise my own car! What pleasure in driving! Thank you and keep up the good work.
Paul M., Gerardmer
I would like to thank you for you professionalism in solving all my queries. I was always treated with great attitude and I will definitely recommend your company.
Miguel L., Portugal
I've just recived the p-tronic, and it works great ! Thank You !
Mikael J. N., Dannemark
Yesterday I installed the box, and I have used my car around 100 kilometers. It really works, not just in better torque and HP (better agility), but a significant diesel consume reduction. Congratulations.
José M. B., Guatemala
I've checked and you're right, one of the pin was not properly installed. I took the casing out and reinstall it myself. Now it works... And the power of my car is not just a small improvement, its HUGE!!..Thank you..
Alan W., Malaysia
Everything is OK now. I pushed the plugs in really hard and this seem to correct the problem. My car now goes like a rocket !!
Martin P., England
As a diesel driver for over 20 years I was out of my comfort zone, and I had trouble deciding between the TFSI 180 (no COD) and the TFSI 150 versions of the Audi A3. I chose the 150 hp engine (I had an Audi Q3 2.0 TDI 140). After a four-month wait, I received the car and I have to say the quiet compared to diesel is very enjoyable. The Audi revs well and the box does a great job. A real pleasure. The transition to two cylinders (COD) is barely noticeable. BUT, as supplied, it doesn't transmit the power efficiently. Especially when starting. Knowing that this version is limited, I opted for P-Tronic (external) engine reprogramming, partly to avoid losing my warranty. I placed my order and two days later I was able to enjoy this extra option: the torque and smoothness have transformed my TSFI 1.4 into an exciting sports car for fun on winding roads or for getting away from traffic troubles. I made the right choice
Rudolf S, Düsseldorf (Germany)
I thank you and congratulate you for your commercial qualities. The dossier was very well followed up and very efficient.
Pascal F., Mareuil/Lay
I thank you for your speed in sending the box-unit. (...)
Thank you for your impeccable service!
Bertrand P., Witry-les-Reims
Congratulations on your site: very well designed and very explicit!
Pierre J., Viesville
Great chip. Thanks.
Super box-unit. Pity you can't change it to another vehicle.
Quentin L., Antwerp.
It's like this, I have a 2006 Golf 1.9 tdi 90 bhp with 18 inch wheels. Because of these, I had lost power, but I acquired a P-Tronic additional IP box-unit 2 years ago. (...) The box unit works superbly, despite the large size of my wheels! I'm no longer driving a donkey! Thanks.
Dany W., France
Without any particular technical knowledge, I set off as a guinea pig for Ptronic, and what astonished me right from the start was the increase in the car's energy as soon as you get above 1500 revs. Once this first impression is gone, it is above all the comfort which the extra torque brings which amazes. It gives a sensation of 'tranquil power'. And this is something you usually only get with large engines. As the operation seems neither to be of any risk to the engine, nor to increase polluting emissions, you win all the way round, or almost, as any possible increase in tax or insurance premium is compensated by the decrease in consumption as demonstrated by the on-board computer.
Carl D., Journalist
I was a little concerned about fitting the box-unit myself because I am useless where mechanics are concerned (and I'm not even a blond!). But I did it easily. The instructions and photos are very clear. And it works really well. Thank you.
Vanessa T., Jodoigne
I bought a second hand car with a P-Tronic in it. At first I was a bit frightened about driving with it, and I took it out after a few weeks. But when it had been taken off, my car (An Alfa Romeo 156 JTD) had much less punch and used more fuel! I had it put back, and I've never had any problems with it.
Rudy D., Brussels.
My Opel Vivaro was a bit dodgy where power was concerned, especially when loaded. With the P-Tronic kit, it's got its wind back, especially on hills. And there's more torque too, which I especially appreciate when I'm driving in town.
Christophe G., Verviers.
I had long been hesitating between a Mercedes C200 CDI and a C220 CDI. When I took some advice, I realised that the only difference was the programming of the injection. So I went for the smaller version with a box-unit from you. Instead of paying 2,200 Euros for the larger version, I only spent 530 and the result is the same.
Carlo W., Luxembourg.
I telephoned your help desk to say that my box unit wasn't working, and they changed it for me in 48 hours. Now it works. Thank you.
Raoul D, Charleroi.
I have just installed your product in my motor-home Fiat Ducato. I got a friend to help me because I don't even know how to open the bonnet, but he had it fitted in 5 minutes. Now I have real pleasure in driving and I feel more secure because I feel I have a certain reserve of power.
Luc F., Kontich.
For me, the fuel savings were just hot air. But I consume almost 1 litre less per 100 km (Citroën C4 1.6 HDi 90 bhp).
Jules F., Wavre.
I am a happy owner of a Kia Sorento, and I drive in warm region with the air conditioning always on. Fuel consumption suffers, but it' so much more pleasant. I got it 3 months ago, and it has 6,000 km o the clock and is very satisfying. I had it checked at 1,000 km and at 5,000, with an oil change. The bill was 159 Euros. The engine holds 8.2 litres of oil with a filter. This may seem a lot but it may be a guarantee of safety. Checks are carried out at 1,000, 5,000, 15,000 and then every 15,000 km. The Sorento is even more enjoyable since I fitted a P-Tronic box unit (site PTRONIC.com) distributed in France by Eurofac. I no longer have to strain the engine to drive in difficult conditions. The vehicle moves along on its own and in total silence. Moving up the revs is crisper and still remains progressive. I hardly have to accelerate to go from 0 to 100, and the speed with which this happens is disconcerting. The gears engage energetically and I'm soon in fourth, whereas before I had to stay in second and third for many seconds. And I've read all your messages carefully. Diesel engines don't take to brutal treatment. You have to drive them with tranquil rhythm, and scrupulously follow the maintenance schedule. The box-unit is not a racing accessory. It brings pleasure to the vehicle which becomes so much more agreeable to drive, conferring an impression of tranquil power, while still giving you the opportunity to leave the boy racers behind.
Martin, south of France.
