DTE Systems is test winner 2016
“Best improved performance and by far the best service”
Full score in all categories for the DTE Systems chiptuning box PowerControl in the eurotuner chipboxes test 2016. DTE Systems is clear winner at the chiptuning box test in the 150th anniversary edition of the German eurotuner magazine 2016.
What has been tested?
Part 1: The dynamometer
The German magazine focused on the test results (power and torque) of the chiptuning boxes. All figures were precisely measured on a dynamometer. The test vehicle was a Golf VII GTD 2.0 with 184 hp measured with a stock performance of 188 hp. The DTE chiptuning box PowerControl achieved 216 hp (+28 hp) and 437 Nm (+51 Nm). This meant full score for DTE Systems and first place in the performance category.
Part 2: The packaging
Besides performance, the testers gave also points for a complete packaging. In addition to the tuning module and the cable harness only DTE Systems has a complete documentation consisting of installation manual, warranty certificate and TÜV part approval. Again, DTE receives the full score.
Part 3: The tuning module
The testers also rated the chiptuning boxes itself, including connected sensors, all security features, as well as possibilities for fine adjustment. Again, the magazine awarded highest ratings for PowerControl. DTE scored with a modern 3-channel system, highest security standards and a simple way to adjust the tuning module via keypad.
Part 4: TÜV part approval / warranty
In the last part of the extensive chipbox-test the magazine took a look at engine warranties and the TÜV part approval. The eurotuner editors gave the maximum score for DTE Systems, for extensive engine warranty (2 years) and the supplied TÜV parts approval.
