I'm looking at powering up the 100 series soon. I like the fact the Tunit is adjustable and has a claimed higher output post instalation than the DTronnic.

I would love to hear opinions from anyone that has gone with the Tunnit.

Hi Alex,

I followed a long and drawn out forum discussion on another web site about the tunit (one respondent was a distributor for tunit) and after that deteriorated into an unprofessional slanging match, I would not touch any product distributed by that person/company. There has also been "issues" on this web site with the distributor for other reasons and even now, you are not allowed to name that company on this web site!!!!

But for the Tunit product itself, of what I have read about its adaption for the Australian market well... I went Dtronic. There was an article in 4WD Monthly many months back that gave a good run down of the product. But for me, I value not only the product, but also those behind it. Some may say I am biased because I have the Dtronic (and perhaps I am), but these were some of the reasons I am glad I went Dtronic.

Not too sure if any of this helps, but thats my experience!

Nuh mate.........Every little bit of info helps. I appreciate your reply.

I read the artical in 4wdMonthly too about the Tunit. Think they whacked it in a Rodeo? They did give it a good wrap but I'm still not totally convinsed.

I know the DTronic is an excellant unit from all I've read from happy owners and when it's all said and done I may very well decide to go that way but if I can find somthing that IMO is better...............

Unfortunate the distributer became so unprofesional in this slanging match you talk about. Not a good way to conduct your self when standing behind a product name! Especially when a product like the Tunit is new to the market. Never the less I'm still intrested.

Thanks mate!

The 'distributer' of tunit also threatened this site with legal action over someone telling the truth about them, about 12 mths ago...

good link re tuning devices written by someone in the field

I think if you do your homework you will find that you only get what you pay for, and the products that are actually worth alot less than the better ones to produce have the priviledge of being able to up the price to what exceptional units cost, but stay just cheap enough to lure those that shop on price alone.

I know I would prefer to buy from a company who has millions invested in what it does, and the equipment to set up the units in house, in the country the units are set up for, rather than risk my engine to any country tin shed operator who could use a seperate company set up just to distribute the items, so if $20,000 engines start coming back broken, they can go back to what ever they were doing and not have to fix them ;-)

I know mine starts with a D and not a T.

One other point I forgot to mention, I went the plug in model so it could be easily removed if required, like warranty issues etc, where as some units are "scotch locked" into the loom, according to the distributor in the above mentioned forum discussion on the subject, or the vehicles loom has the wires stripped in a section so the tuning device can be connected to the loom, leaving evidence that it has been installed unless you replace the loom.

That conversation all that time ago may have gotten out of hand, there may have been a few red faces all around. Lots of things are said in the heat of the moment,we are all guilty of it from time to time. The people you are referring to are VERY professional, They do excellent work and you can discuss any aspect of the job with them. I think it's a bit unfair to carry it on any further than this.
