    I'm pretty new to this motorhome game, but I'm hooked already, it's great. I bought a second hand 05 Fiat Ducato Milano a couple of months ago. The only problem I found was that it really lacked power going up hills or accelerating when loaded up. On a friend's recommendation I had the ecu remapped (sorry don't know the technical ins and outs of that) and the difference is amazing! :D I took it to a placed called Chipwizards, near Rochdale in Lancashire, and he did it while I waited. It will cost me less in fuel now as well so well worth it! Just thought I'd share the knowledge! :)

    I had my vw passat 1.8 turbo ( petrol ) done, 150 bhp, 217 lbs of torque converter to 200 bhp and 300lbs of torque. Cost £275, fella come to the house. Amazing performance, :BigGrin::BigGrin:wheelspins in1st, 2nd and 3rd gear now. No worse in fuel either.

    Wont be having the fiat 2.8 turdo diesel though, it'll rip the CI body off :Rofl1:

    More power AND Less Fuel !!!

    Dieselpowertuning is a high quality plug and play digital tuning box which you can diy fit or have fitted by one of a network of over 100+ installers. The company who operate DPT in the UK are a professional supplier of quality auto products since 1975.

    The unit provides additional torque in the rev ranges required most, accompanied by improved MPG. Users of the product have been interviewed by caravanning magazines in the past and provided glowing independent verification. Google it and see.

    They have arrangements with major insurers; Norwich Union, NIG and Fortis. See site for details

    They also have a warranty in place via an NIG insurance policy a details of which is available on the website. Check out the site, see the News and Download sections for loads of interesting and informative facts.

    A regular exhibitor at NEC caravan shows plus their installers advertise at regional shows. This years Butfords caravan site guide has no fewer than 24 separate adverts for DPT plus 3 full pages of further information !

    A downside may be that you will pay about £ 300 for the unit BUT like everyting in life you get what you pay for. If you want a but a few resistors go to maplins and pay 20p rather than £ 50 on ebay for the same thing being masqueraded as a "tuning device", if you want some magnets go to a DIY store, this is a very crude way of enhancing performance. If you want a high quality digital tuning device look at the website and make your own decision.

    The product is manufactured in Holland to the highest quality specifications and was recently recommended in the Sunday Mirror by none less that Quentin Willson who is having a couple fitted to his diesel cars.

    So check it out and call them or your local installer.
