The Ford Tourneo Custom is one of the most popular and versatile people carriers / work vans on the market today. It offers plenty of room, great handling thanks to the excellent Ford chassis, and a range of engine options to suit your needs. The engine options for this van are where TDI-Tuning come into play. With so much choice, it can be hard to choose the right one to suit your circumstances. So, how does a TDI-Tuning Box come into all this?

Why should I tune my van?

Tuning the Ford Tourneo engine gives it an extra edge, it's a great way to get the most out of your vehicle. This Tourneo Custom 320 Sport comes equipped with 185 BHP as standard. A good amount, and one of the more powerful engines available. Once the van is fully laden, with tools or humans! That power soon feels less and less suitable for the task at hand. That is where a TDI-Tuning Box can help you out. The adjustable settings on the tuning box enable custom power outputs at any given time. Use the mobile app to adjust between the 7 bespoke settings. With 1 being the smallest, and commonly used for fuel efficiency, and 7 being the highest and most powerful. A lot of our customers adjust the settings depending on what they are using their vehicle for. Carrying 9 passengers? Setting 7 will make the van feel like you aren't carrying anyone. On your own and on the way to pick up building materials? Setting 1 might give you the motorway cruising efficiency you need to save yourself £££ on the trip! However you choose to use the TDI-Tuning Box, it's this sort of customisation that can't be offered from a simple vehicle remap. Tiered settings on the TDI-Tuning box allow complete customisation.

What engine should I choose for the Ford Tourneo?

Why do manufacturers release so many different power outputs? Some of the reasons are to do with the manufacturer, tax and efficiency laws, and region-specific rules. It also gives a choice to the consumers, the people buying the vans. The Ford Tourneo comes with a 2.0-litre diesel engine available in three power outputs: 104 BHP, 130 BHP and 185 BHP. The owner of the one mentioned in this article has the highest performance engine available. No other options are available from the manufacturer to increase the engine performance. If you do want to increase the engine performance, you have some options. One option is to remap the vehicle ECU to optimise the engine settings and increase performance. This option invalidates your vehicle warranty (If you still have a warranty remaining on your vehicle). Warranties are also available on vehicles outside of the normal manufacturer period. The owner of this one has a Ford Gold Protect extended warranty, so it's covered for another year. The good news is a TDI-Tuning Box, once removed, is traceless. It does not leave a digital or physical trace once removed. This makes the tuning box an ideal modification for vehicle owners who don't want to permanently alter the vehicle.

What other benefits do I get from using a TDI-Tuning Box on my van?

Lots! We have already mentioned the different settings, the Bluetooth app and the fact that it is traceless once removed. But there are many more benefits from using a TDI-Tuning Box. Another is that it is reprogrammable, this means, if you change vehicles, the tuning box can follow you along to your next car. All you need to do is send it back to us so we can change the firmware and vehicle map settings, then you are good to go. As the TDI-Tuning Box is so easy to install and remove, and we ship globally, you can be back up and running in no time! The best part is, installing the tuning box doesn't require any previous mechanical knowledge, you can install it on your driveway without the need for any tools or expertise. All of our tuning boxes come with a 5-year warranty and detailed instructions to help you along the process.
