Hi, just to share my experiences with attempts to "UP" my Torque , to tow a large van;]
I have a 2003 2.2DDi X Trail Sport, with apparently a Denso Ecu.
Getting a Tuning box for this model is an ordeal in itself! When i have obtained a Tuning box (which i have had 2), the car goes into limp mode at the earliest inappropriate moment!
I decided to bite the bullet and pay the extra and get a re map: I have the wrong Ecu apparently, the Bosch is ok, but the Denso is a PIG!
Has anyone who has this model had a decent tuning box or re map???

Cliffy, i have not gone under the bonnet looking for the ecu, but i believe it is either wired, or is where the diagnostics are plugged in, under the steering wheel.
The only way a tuner could see if i had Bosch or Denso Ecu, was to plug in and read the data

Hi, I also have the 2.2 Di sport X on a 53 plate and was thinking of getting a tuning box.

Could you tell me/us which ones you have tried please? Hopefully I can benefit from your experiences!!

Cheers Stuart.

Hi Stuart, First tuning box was from Germany, company has disappeared as quick as it arrived!, the second Box was from Diesel express, excellent customer service, no hassle 90 day money back guarantee .
I am now in the process of sourcing a company who can re map my Ecu, to get better torque for towing my caravan.
Any body got any leads?

Race Tune AKA PWCars have it listed. I have bought a car from them - and they are supremely helpful but I can't help when it comes to how good their remaps are.

Dude hold back on the remap, Denso and Bosch are the Injectors from what i understand, the firm ive found can supply a common rail connection or a direct injector connection PDI kit

My common rail connection tuning box will arrive tomorrow fingers crossed

Hi Neil, certain I know which company you are using. Not going to p**s on your chips though. :mrgreen: It has "DT" in its title somewhere?? The MD is called Andrew?? All very secretive eh!!

A friend runs a garage (main dealer not nissan though) but I didnt know until sunday that he also uses this firm and really rates the kit.
He has a unit put to one side for me but it needs a different wiring loom. He has just text to say its being shipped tomorrow.

If it is the same supplier it will be interesting to see what results are acheived from both our cars.

Cheers Stuart :thumbs:
