    Hi Epicenter.

    Many of the guys who have fixed or opined about fixing tuning boxes have mentioned that the vehicle black smokes a lot, but we havent heard that complaint from you with your petes. My guess was with the K & N, there is more air available at the time of cumbustion for the extra injection of diesel to burn vis a vis a stock air filter which gives a much limited supply of air for the additional fuel that is fed and hence more unburnt fuel in black. Am I right ??
    So Peteing and K& ning should be done simultaneoulsy. That leaves the question, is fixing K N without peting good ? as there would be more air available for a stock injection

    Hey Mandeep,

    Great review of your GP and the pete's box, just wanted to know if u are running the box on the default setting or +1 or +2 setting, if so, do let us know your review, im running my box on default settings along with stock replacement k&n till the next oil change, might move to +1 and later on +2.

    Thanks

    i'll not be changing any settings.
    the further you fiddle with your tuning box, everything that happens is on papers only.
    you will only be seeing a marked difference in your fuel economy which will go for a toss. nothing else.
    but its your tuning box and you can do as you please. :D
    drive safe and please update what happens when you move over to a different level. i'll be very interested.

    hi guys
    just an update on the decal...had asked the showroom guys for a new replacement since the "t" had fallen off the "emotion"
    the guys were kind enough to get me just a "t" from an accident vehicle. it'll go up onto my car today evening.
    drive safe and always wear a seatbelt :D

    I think you wash your vehicle too much. I have seen this happen on a Fiesta which was washed by its owner daily.
