Resolved Question:

I have recently brought a diesel performance mod/chip for my 2010 Peugeot 207 1.4 HDi, from a company recommended by a person off here but the mod tell you to locate the IAT lead ..... ok but then tells you to cut the wire and plug off leave and leave some the wire at plug to re connect (which I don't want to do !!) and reconnect with the eye sore of a connector(s) they have supplied. Is there a female conector to the IAT lead off my Peugeot so I don't have to massacre the wiring the the original IAT sensor connector

Hello

the trouble is that the mating half of these connectors is that they are only ever produced onto the component
the industry has no need to make these mating halves

also these tuning devices are not something I'd reccommend as all they do is 'fool' the sensor output into the ECU to offset the signal and make it inject more fuel

if you really want to tune the engine then these devices are somehting I've used in the past to good effect as they are a complete solution

Are these the other sort you get that connect to the common rail pressure switch

Hello Chris

thats right or there are now solutions which re-flash the original ECU


but I've used the Tunit stuff before and know its a good solution

Hello

usually they plug into the main interface plug on the pump

however if you've uncertain they do offer a 'try before you buy' policy

you do have to visit one of their dealers for this but there are dealers up and down the country
