Anyone using piggy back tuning options?

Until just a couple of days ago, I was unaware that there were any piggyback tuning options available for the car. I like the idea of a piggyback on a potentially unreliable car far more than shipping the ECUs out for flashing and this car needs more power, so I need one ASAP. hah. Is anyone using one of those options? I was about to pull the trigger at DTE/chiptuning.com with a claimed +50hp, but it seems that TDI Tuning also has a similar offering and are showing +80hp gains. Thoughts? Reviews?

why are all of these tuners in Europe? does pogea have a tune option?


I just wonder how legit these folks are and the veracity of their hp claims? I sure like the idea and ease of install for this piggyback method.

I like and have supported Eurocompulsion's work in regards to Giulia & Stelvio tuning, but I agree, a piggyback and/or flash tune would also be interesting.

Wonder if Burgertuning is working on anything. I know they have options for the Giulia/Stelvio 2.0T, but not QV so far...

Current: Tundra, 3GT
Past: GTI, Evo VIII, Mustang, Si, Evo X

They’re not actively working it. I actually have been recently reading emails with them about it and provided them with pictures of our sensors and locations, but nothing firm came of the discussion.

I went ahead and ordered the TDI Tuning solution. I'll report back how it works.

How about the JB4 from John Burger Motorsports? http://www.burgertuning.com/alfa_rom...nce_tuner.html

Edit: Just realized you are looking for tuning for the QV, so the JB4 does not apply.

I have a DTE Tuner. In all fairness I am the distributor for DTE Systems here in the US and am gauging the traffic on this site before taking the full plunge into sponsorship so I don't want to get into trying to sell the product here and violate the site terms. I can offer insight in to the market from a customer standpoint as that's how I got involved with them to begin with. I bought one for my S4. It worked. I asked the same questions about why they weren't really pushing them here. Got an ambiguous response. I offer to try and here we are.

That being said. It is a legit market. Some tuners are better than other. Some claims are accurate. Some are less than accurate. Some don't test and tune their product on a dyno, some do. There are a number of factors in what makes a successful tuner. Chief among them is signal speed, signal consistency and hardware quality. Here is my installation on my personal QV. The tune is a dyno tuned, dyno proven +50hp/+60tq.

I can’t read German. Is that a wheel or BHP chart?

Radleistung is at the wheel and motorleistung is at the motor. Rad means wheel and leistung means power.
