  1. I guess yes. If the tuning box increases the power of the car then top Speed will increase is what I guess.

    Power tells how much work can be done by the vehicle. More BHP means they can do more work. What is specified is engine power. The actual work done will depend on weight, aerodynamics, tire grip, gear box etc.
  3. I am using ASA Tuning box, on the paper it read increase in BHP from 75 to 89 and increase in top speed from 175 to 184. These are just on papers i am not sure of the top speed though, never pushed her that hard.
  4. @Thomman,
    IMHO, it can't.. What the Tuning box can do is to make the car quickly reach the top speed but increasing the top speed can't be done, If Linea max speed is 180 then it is. If you check the manual for top speed it will be well below 180 mark, but still we floor her to go for 180 even more sometimes. So its the ability of the engine here to go for max speed and the tuning box just minimizes the time taken to reach that speed.

    Why dont you paint your mesh grille and fog lamp covers to black ? it would be better than this ! gvm have done that in his red gp n looks great ! Black roof looks more subtle than chequered flag which was too eye catchy (sort of head turner).
