‘Plug and play’ diesel economy units are being marketed by engine tuners, Paramount Performance of Slough. Vehicles for which boxes are unavailable can be equally effectively modified by remapping of the engine’s ECU. Either way, improvements of anything up to 16% are possible.
Paramount made their name by extracting more power from performance cars from Jaguar, Aston Martin and Porsche, but are now refocusing their expertise on tuning turbo diesel powered vehicles for optimum economy.
Paramount’s ‘plug and play’ economy units can be purchased by mail order and fitted in minutes by the owner. Alternatively, they can be fitted by the company at their headquarters in Slough. Re-mapping is undertaken in the same place, and all customers having an economy conversion carried out on their behalf have the option of their car being fine tuned on the rolling road, free-of-charge.
Paramount’s economy conversions for turbo diesel cars cost from around £299 to £350, plus VAT, and come with a money-back guarantee. Where applicable, the ‘plug and play’ units can be readily transferred to another vehicle of the same type.
Further details of the economy devices can be found at www.paramount-performance.com or by calling +44 (0)1753 533633.
