Who are Tunit?
The first Tunit product was created in 1998 to improve performance and fuel economy for Diesel Engines. Since then the product has been developed continually to work with Governments, Armed Forces, Companies and of course individual drivers to improve drive, performance and economy even further. The original Tunit and its more updated big brother the Tunit Advantage is an interactive computer that is a step beyond methods such as opening up engine computers and altering physical engine components.

How does it work?
The Tunit Works by careful and safe Modification of signals Sent from The Engines own control computer to the engine. Accelerator, air, fuel and load readings are accurately used to calculate improved signals that are delivered to the engine with digital precision and speed. The result is a smoother power and torque gain. More power is delivered throughout the rpm range and more importantly lower down were needed for improved take off and acceleration. This produces progressive power gains without sudden surges or dropping of power. The turbo or other mechanical parts are not directly altered, so there is no strain on this or other engine components.

The Tunit Advantage power upgrade now offers even more power & torque along with better fuel savings, the Tunit Advantage is designed to improve your diesel engines performance, specifically its power and torque. Typical improvements are delivery of smoother, more aggressive power, with an increase of up to 40%.

Customer surveys of over 9000 users also showed an average fuel saving of 12%.

The Advantage Tunit performance power upgrade can be manually adjusted for extra power. It is the only scientifically proven diesel tuning device shown to improve fuel economy and reduce harmful emissions by 27%.

- Increased power & torque.
- 12% Improved fuel economy
- Reduced carbon emissions
- 1 Year engine & driveline warranty
- 5 Year product warranty.
- Easy installation & adjustment.

Tunit Advantage diesel power upgrades have a tuning dial with 10 different settings which allows you to choose between more or less power, or to find a good combination of drive and economy while improving diesel performance in a much simpler and much more effective way than 'Chip Tuning'.

Using the adjustment dial you can customise your driving experience. The Tunit power upgrade is built on sturdy technology, coming in a watertight secure case with easy access to the adjustment.

XFIRE Soundproofing

Why B&B Audioconcepts SoundProof Vehicles

Good car audio begins with properly treated doors and panels. Flexing metal panels and expanses of plastic cause a myriad of issues with car sound from bass cancelling road noise to annoying shakes rattles and vibrations. A flexing metal panel can effective sap the energy away from your speakers by creating inter-cancellation at the rear of your speaker while other surfaces can produce unwanted nasty resonances which colour the sound. Our sound deadening and panel lining products go as far as possible in eradicating these products while our wave diffuser will absorb the sound issuing from the rear of your speakers to prevent that sound reflecting back into the speakers. The importance of sound treatment such as the Skinz range should never be underestimated.
