Re: ECU TUNING BOX UPGRADE for Fiat Panda Twinair Turbo

update us mate. thanks
It's good so far, but I haven't had a chance to take it for a long drive - really it's just been around-town driving.

I find Eco mode best for day-to-day driving, it's more linear in its power delivery. The 'normal' mode can feel a bit too sudden in its mid-range power delivery, but I think it's just a matter of getting used to it. You have to carefully squeeze the throttle in the mid range - it really amplifies the TA's strong suit of excellent mid-range response.

Fuel consumption is sitting at 7.5L/100km so far, which is about normal for my stop-start short runs in the city. I need a few good runs before commenting on economy.

So, in other words, you'll have to wait a while longer before I can say anything really useful about the tuning box; I don't drive it much for a while, then find I need it for quite a few long trips. Now's a quiet time for the Panda.

Thank you.
Have a read though this thread - hopefully you will find the detailed info you need. I can highly recommend the TMC box on my admittedly brief experience, and I bought it from TMC in the UK direct.

I cannot recommend the Magneti Marelli ME111T tuning box; it did nothing.

Having said that, Black parts S.r.l. in Italy (who sold me the MM box) are a very good retailer, first sending me a new harness to try and then refunding me in full when I sent the box back.
