The Tunit III is adjustable on installation. If the vehicle has a change of use then further adjustments can be made.
The Tunit has provided economy for many years on an array of applications and has been used extensively on Military vehicles.

Ive recently added a tunit V-CR to my Focus TDCI 115 and the results are truly satisfying. With the jumper set to the higest power setting my focus (already well run in) managed 148bhp (121 before) at 3800rpm and 223lb.ft of torque (190 before) at 2200 rpm on a dyno. 0 - 60 has been measured in the dry at 8.3 secs (2 secs quicker than standard) thanks to 7% ish longer gearing courtesy of 17.5" rims, taking 3 gears to do so. Pulls impressively well from 1250 rpm, especially noticable in 4th and 5th gears. Ive backed the jumper off two settings and made do with slightly less power for now and fuel economy really is significantly higher thanks to the substantially stronger high gear pull. I was previously averaging 45mpg over a tank, mostly urban runs of 12 miles or less but including weekly motorway runs of 120 miles. Motorway cruising is easier and smoother (I do not know why) And at 75 mph on good road a truly ridiculous figure of 69.0 mpg showed on my trip computer after 60 miles. A few tanks of fuel later, and without paying too much attention to what my right foot is doing the car easily does 500+ miles on about 48 litres of diesel at about 52 mpg in mixed driving conditions, 7 mpg more than pre-tunit and 2.5 mpg more than ford say the focus on big hoops will do.

Just a line to enclose with the product registration form to let you know that Simon at West Auckland fitted the tunit and we are very pleased with it. The pick-up is on top of its work all the time and running very smoothly - it has pulled the livestock trailer to market several times.
