Tmc tuning box
« on: May 30, 2013, 10:49:47 pm »
Hi guys,
Thinking of getting one of these for my evo, but read some threads with people saying that there blowing sensors and giving check engine warnings. My car has the esseesse kit, so is it really worth it or would I be creating myself a problem.

    The jury seems to be out on this one. Anecdotally, some have had problems, removed the box and all is well again. Others seem to be running ok.

    Hmmm... unsure on what to do, is it worth doing as the car already has the essessee kit, would it give noticeable improvements in performance. Also which one should I buy cos there's 2, 1 for the standard car and 1 for the ss version with 180 bhp. I have a standard evo with the essessee kit which believe takes it to 180bhp.  ???

    I had one on my AGP-SS and it was fine for 6 months.

    After the initial 'honeymoon period' it got rather lumpy and started missing a beat.  Took the box off and everything was ok again.

    I don't know what the EVO is like with prolonged use?  I'm assuming the Multiair has a completely different setup to the old T-jet

    I've had no big issues bar initial hiccup where the box didn't do a lot, sent it back for another and it was fine, gives a similar bump to as going from stock  to SS an additional 20bhp and 20-30lb ft torque across the range on top of SS.
