Yeah . . . right . . .

You might get better fuel consumption.

You might get more power.

You won't get both at the same time!

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

Malone Tuning and JR Auto tuning/TuneMyEuro are well known and respected for TDI tunes.
You can always be a Guinea Pig with something new and let us know how it goes.
yrkTreg has some 'fixes' for the performance changes due to the DieselGate fix.

Tunit

I've got Tunit boxes on my R50. More power and torque at slightly better economy. Dynotest is attached. I run it on the maximum setting all the time as the economy gets better the higher you set it. On my car anyway. I haven't had any issues with them. Not sure if they are available in the US.

Don't fool yourself. If you want economy, drive slower. The engine is already tuned for best economy.

If you want more power and you chip it, then more fuel is added. Sometimes remaps will up the boost as well.

I had a chip and saw the oil temps shoot up by about 10-15 degrees celsius. I sold the chip.

The really cheap plug and play chips is a parralel resistor on the fuel temp sensor. It fools the ecu into thinking the fuel is hotter than what it actually is so the ecu injects more fuel to compensate (as hot fuel is less dense than cold fuel). More fuel = more power.

My advice : just leave the thing alone. It's not a supercar and it's by no means slow for a 2.5 tonne SUV.

All vw/audi engines must use 507.00 spec oil except non-DPF R5/V10 engines that must use 505.01/506.01

That's your opinion. You obviously don't agree with mine. I actually worked out my fuel consumption the old fashioned way for months after fitting the boxes, just driving normally, one tank at a time. The boxes have settings of 0-9, 0 being off. I tested it at 0, 5 and 9. The results were unexpected, and that's why I took it for a dynotest. I don't know why you would think I'm driving it like a supercar, but I could and sometimes I do take it for a sprint. Guaranteed if you were sitting next to me, you'd probably want to as well. I'm quite familiar with how the tuning boxes work as I've done a lot of research before installing them. I've had no issues with temperatures or anything else. The car still gets serviced by VW and I took it there after it was fitted for them to check out. They couldn't find anything to suggest that the boxes are going to cause any sort of damage. So to sum up, you might have had a bum chip or you didn't do your research properly. I wouldn't take the tuning boxes off again. The dynotest tells me I'd be stupid to.

Interesting... you guys this is a bit hilarious. A tune by Malone would give you both more torque and efficiency as in economy. (Everyone knows if the new found power is too hard to keep your foot outa it the economy is lost) however if one only uses the go pedal occasionally it will net you better mpg. By the way I have no vetted interest in Malone. I just know you can have your cake and eat it both!
