DTE Tuning-Technology

More performance, guaranteed

The PowerControl gets installed in the engine compartment and is connected to several of the main engine sensors. The ECU transmits the standard signals to the engine, which is where the PowerControl intercepts, interprets, processes, optimizes and then sends them on to the engine, all in real-time. Using the latest tuning technologies, DTE is able to precisely tune these signals for the best performance throughout the rev range.


Multi-Map Technology

Tuning for every sensor

DTE has developed a software for PowerControl that can optimize up to five different channels, all in real-time.

With the multi-map tuning software DTE’s PowerControl is able to controlcommon rail pressure, boost pressure, turbo pressure, intake manifold pressure or air mass volume. Even the latest generation and most technically demanding engines are effortlessly controlled, all within a multi-dimensional multi-map environment. The driver is able to select from 3 different programs: Sport, Dynamic and Efficiency.


Adaptive Sensor System

Intelligent performance increase on driver's command

The Adaptive Sensor System scrutinizes all the relevant engine data and after detecting its respective load state, will provide more power when necessary. Should the driver demand more power, for example, when overtaking, the system will automatically switch on. If the additional power is not used, the system will gradually reduce the power, all power changes are seamless and dynamic.
Not only are the best performance yields based on engine load state but also on-road speeds, that’s what DTE’s adaptive tuning technology offers, more power with less fuel usage.


Adjusts automatically to driving behavior.

This innovation allows DTE’s tuning products to ‘learn’ the unique characteristics of your vehicle. During a short setup period, the chips memory function records the engine's injection cycle data and optimizes the reloaded maps accordingly. Standard vehicle tolerances are taken into account and an optimal tune is achieved – all without any complicated driver input.


A milestone in engine tuning

This newly developed multi-protocol tuning technology in the SNT PowerControl combines both analog and digital ECU technologies. Digital SENT signals are recorded and optimized by the SNT PowerControl while at the same time capturing important analog signals from the ECU. Our SNT PowerControl is a real milestone in the performance industry and a world first, only from DTE.


Safety - Peace Of Mind

The DTE Tuning Ethos is based on these 6 foundations

1. Tried and trusted performance, developed and tested for everyday use

Only new vehicles are used when collecting and analyzing engine information, which ensures that only the most accurate data is used when creating our tuning files, all of which are thoroughly tested on our in-house MAHA dyno. Only tried and trusted tuning solutions are used on your vehicle, ensuring that everyday reliability is never compromised. The vehicle's fault diagnosis system, engine management computer and emission level gauges remain intact.

2. Never tuned to the max

Our philosophy is "safe tuning", taking advantage of any possible areas of improvement. Our goal is not the most power we can get, but rather the optimum levels attainable which are safe for the vehicle.

3. Made in Germany

Our PowerControl and PedalBox tuning products are manufactured in Germany and in accordance with the highest safety and quality standards available.

4. Quality Assurance - VDAT

The President of the Association of German automotive tuners(VDAT), Prof. H.C. Bodo Buschmann, summarised the importance of VDAT membership as follows:

"Customers buying any tuning products should look out for the VDAT quality assurance label. It is their assurance that the products they are buying are of the best quality available. Tuning signed and sealed."

5. Comprehensive warranty

Our fully comprehensive warranty goes far beyond what is legally required, not only ensuring the longevity of your vehicle but your satisfaction too!

6. Parts certificates included

TUV parts certificates are available on request for more than 4,000 different vehicles with more being added all the time. This certification allows you to easily register your vehicle modification with any relevant inspection body.

This certification allows you to easily register your vehicle modification with any relevant inspection body. In Germany for example, the inspection is done by entities such as TÜV, DEKRA or a KÜS-expert and usually only takes a couple of minutes making complex and costly individual registrations,(required by German law §21 StvZo), a thing of the past.
All of our part certificates are issued by Automotive Bundesamt, an authorized testing authority in Germany. They are valid in both German and Austria and accepted by any recognized authority. Please look out for the “with parts certificate“ sign in our online shop, and also note that more vehicles are added all the time. The following link is a typical example of a TUV certificate where claimed power increases, compatibility with the respective vehicle as well engine emission values are all tested for accuracy: Part Approval Certificate

Clarification of parts certificate and insurance

Without a parts certificate, the installation of a chip tuning leads to the expiration of the General Operating License of your vehicle. In that case, an allowable operation by restoring the operating license is possible only through a single inspection with a single screening at a competent inspection service according to § 21 StVZO (German law).

Legal Notice

We point out that the operation of a vehicle without first implementing the change approved by a testing institution in the papers, together with the registration will lead not only to the loss of the general approval of the vehicle and is thereto also connected to the loss of insurance coverage accompanied. Incidentally, the following applies: Every increase in performance caused by a chip tuning has an effect on the statutory warranty claims against the seller or the warranty claims against the manufacturer.


PedalBox Pro - The throttle tuning for more driving fun

Start faster, accelerate better and overtake more confidently

The PedalBox is the original throttle response controller from DTE Systems. The throttle tuning optimises the accelerator pedal characteristic curve and thus improves acceleration by up to +10% for all vehicles with electronic accelerator pedals - regardless of whether petrol, diesel, hybrids or electric cars. With the PedalBox Pro Remote, the PedalBox can be operated wirelessly and easily stored on the keychain. At the same time, it can also be operated at any time with your own smartphone. Thanks to the simple installation, the PedalBox is installed on the throttle in no time at all and is immediately ready for use.
