I am new and I am sure this has been answered, but I have been searching and searching and can't find any definitive answers for my question.
I am looking at buying the diablosport extreme power puck for my 2008 WK CRD.
It appears too good to be true for 50 hp and 100 torque for just over $350.
Is this going to tear my transmission apart? OR DESTROY ANYTHING?
I don't tow anything, but do have a heavy foot, and am looking to spice up the drive and gain a little fuel economy without doubling or tripling that price in other parts (intake exhaust). I just hit 100000km so warranty is gone.

If it appears 'to good to be true', is probably is.
If I am not mistaken, the power puck just increases fuel rail pressure to get the gains they call for.
I would go for an ECU HOT tune from GDE (Green diesel engineering) the most common ECU tune here, or there is Custom Spooling, out of the UK or Inmotion Tuneing.
Yes, they all will cost you about double what the puck is worth, but give you so, so, much more in performance. Also, GDE eliminates the swirl motor issue that is common to the CRD.
Search for GDE tune on the forum and lots will come up about it.

Thanks guys, I am a firm believer if it is too good to be true it is. And yes, you right about the fuel rail pressure. But even with the GDE tune, is it hard on the tranny?
I asked the same question and was told that they supposedly keep the factory's torque limiting feature so not to send any extra power during shifts. That said, you will be making more power at times other than the shifts so you will be stressing things more than stock. On the flip side, there are a few people here with the tune and no one has had transmission problems as far as I've read.

Disregard, I see you can send it in or buy the tool...appears the tool would be nice to have for future codes!
FYI, With the WK tuning from GDE the flash tool is sold with the tune for $695, no need to order a second tool. We do not have the rental option or ecm mail-in option on the WK, that is only on the Liberty CRD.
