Na, they do some different stuff with the AMG version. There's a twin scroll charger and some sort of friction reducing material in the motor too. And it's hand built.
Hi, can you send some photos???Update: installed this morning. The install took about 15 min for me (took me about 5 min to figure out how to unclip the sensor).
It's incredibly easy to install, the hardest part was finding a spot to tie it down. After the install, I ran into an issue getting it to pair with the smartphone app, as it turns out there are 2 versions and I had installed the wrong one (make sure you get the Dinantronics SPORT app, not the regular Dinantronics one). After I installed the correct app and unpaired the phone from the car bluetooth (learned this the hard way as well, it won't pair if you leave your phone connected to the car bluetooth) it was able to sync. First step was to calibrate the boost gauge (make sure ignition is on, engine off, you can do this by not pressing the brake pedal and pressing the start button twice). The device comes in sport+ mode by default so I left it at that and went for a drive. Definitely a noticible difference, especially in the lower rpms.
For those asking about which drive mode is selected in the car (eco, sport, manual) I left it in eco mode and the chip appears to override it, because it definitely didn't drive like it usually does in eco mode. I haven't tried switching to sport or manual but I'll give it a shot and post an update if anyone is interested. Also if you need pics to help with the install just pm me and I'll send some over.
Which one is the model from Dinan? Very interested!OK - the Dinantronics Boost controller arrived yesterday. A very nice and simple mod to discretely take your QX30 up a notch or two. Power and torque are obviously increased at low RPMs and peak around 4000 rpm.
A couple more observations:
It literally takes 5 minutes to complete.
* Your TRANSMISSION still defaults to Economy mode.
* The Dinantronics defaults at Sport+.
* I tried valet and stock modes just so I could see if I could tell the difference (slightly sluggish in Valet/parental control mode)...
* I didn't try RACE yet since a warning pops up on the ap telling you that 93 octane is recommended for Race mode. I will need to find me some or go get some 100+ they sell locally in 5 gallon containers. (most all premium here is just 91)
It REALLY makes me want some type of exhaust improvement for the audible enjoyment. (I can't tell you how much more fun the G37S exhaust made driving my EX35)... Pops had a CLA45 that sounded better than any daily driver I had ever heard...until he got the C63 AMG. WOW. I want that sound in our QX30, or something close.
Happy with the mod. It is a bargain for what you get in return. Can't wait to surprise a few cars at the light.
Thanks! Just ordered mine!!Here you go. I like it more and more every day. And my gas mileage has not decreased, it’s probably even gone up a touch
