Diesel Tuning Box

Anybody got any recommendations for diesel tuning box companies? My other vehicle is a Mercedes Sprinter and considered a Superchips upgrade when I first bought it but haven't taken it any further.

Watch out Carlos, my van has a twin turbo too!

If you're not worried about the lack of switching, I'd go for e-maps, otherwise, I can recommend my Steinbauer P-Box.

Not sure if either do the sprinter, though.

Have you used them Carlos, can't say I have heard of them.

You can remove the box, you can't remove the remap, I have always remapped, not any more P-Tronic all the way, I am testing one on my 635DS and it's transformed it, from very quick to blistering.
I bought it for the new X6 thats coming in september, which will be a good improvement over stock. So far 3MPG improved over 70 miles of use, they get better with a few hundred miles on them I am told, just getting better and better now. It is a 2 min job on/off un-like the remap. BMW software now is much more in tune looking for remaps, so.
