Thanks for that.
Yes the Piggy Back option is the easy first steps. We just needed to provide the OEM plugs to both the Fuel Rail and MAP sensors.
Going in through the EOM programming is another ball of wax. I can edit the program via the factory ECU once I have it out of the car but getting the ECU out is something people may find less appealing. The benefits of reflashing are stealth and ability to turn off the EGR and on car equipped with DPF we can turn that off too.
The piggy back option is not in saying that. The performance gain is very good in fact. About 30% more torque
I do a forum discount on a few forums for other vehicles so if the forum admins don't mind I could offer this here as well.
RRP is normally $999 or $1299 for EGT Controlled Module
With the forum discount from our Sydney store the price is $899.00 and the EGT Controlled Module is $1199.00.
EGT (Exhaust Gas Temp) Control is where we safeguard the engine as if the engine gets too hot the Module automatically dumps the performance tune in favour of the factory tune until temps stabilise. (This can occur when towing heavy vans/boats up hills etc and with ANY Chip/Module on the market)
When the temps stabilise (ie top the hill and reduce throttle) the performance tune is re-established automatically. The EGT Controller also has a LED display that sits inside the cabin and being a digital gauge, it is super responsive and accurate.
If one does not tow over say 1.5 ton then no need for the extra EGT Controller. HOWEVER, this form of engine protection is very cheap insurance, and is still cheaper than the competitor’s products that are around $1400. The EGT Controller is highly recommended and a must in our opinion if you do any form of towing of caravans or ski boats etc.
The Module is very easy to remove though you do not need to remove the EGT Controller/Gauge. The Dealer will not have a problem with the EGT Gauge since you are only measuring temps. This item just plays in t the Performance Module.
$25.00 gets it out to you usually next day. All step by step instructions come with the kit so you can fit yourself.
Flash Tuning is $899.
