I'm aware of DTronic and Tunit - Does anyone know if there is a programmable chip for the LC100TD like the Unichip?

Alister,

I was looking at a Progamable alternative neither the DTronic nor Tunit are progamable.

You'll find that most engine management/control systems/units for diesels don't allow the plug in chip hence the Dtronic which is a plug on box. Most programmable chips are for the ECU of petrol engines.

Give Safari a call and they will probably explain how it all works.

Gary W,

I may be wrong, but I was lead to believe that the Dtronic is programmable.
After fitting one to my patrol, I was told that if I did any exhaust or turbo modifications that I could send it back to Safari and they could recallibrate it to suit the mods. There is a plug socket on the Dtronic that isn't used and I would assume that is where they plug into it, but I would guess that they wouldn't supply the software program to enable someone to do it themselves.

I'm afrad not - the DTronic is customised for each model of vehicle but thats all.

How's it going Gary

Have been looking at DTronic and Tunit for a while for my GU 3.0 td . The claimed power gains from both products are very similar. I wrote an email to the Tunit guyand asked if I was getting a new exaust as well should I get it first. depending on the model the tunit can either be programmed with a computer or by moving a wire link to achieve the best results. He said to get the exaust first so that the tunit could be matched to the application, To me the described tunig process seemed a bit hit and miss . I suppose you have had a look on the site, I dont know what to believe, just because the write it doesnt make it the truth, best part is the testimonials section- a guy writes that his vehicle was going like crap with a dtronic and got the power he was looking for with a tunit

could someone email me if they have had good/bad results

The Tunit just seems a bit 'back yard' for my liking - From what I can tell it just ups the fuel across the fuel map. In diesels more fuel = more grunt but also more risk to engine life. The DTronic has the same risks but seems to have a tad more science involved.

The main difference is the Tunit interupts the signal post computer the DTRonic alters the computer input tricking the computer to deliver a different outcome. Neither seem ideal - But I don't yet know of an alternative.
