All accessory electronics delivered by STEINBAUER are based on a single principle: 100% independence of the hardware module from the vehicle’s own control electronics (ECU) by means of an original STEINBAUER plug connection.
STEINBAUER has been developing, manufacturing and distributing additional performance electronics for over 15 years. Every product in the STEINBAUER range has been developed and produced in-house. There is no substitute for quality.
To assist in the prevention of mis-identification of STEINBAUER products with products of inferior quality or products produced by other manufacturers and distributors. STEINBAUER Performance is a registered trademark.
The fuel consumption of any vehicle is mainly influenced by the style of driving. If a tuned car is driven “hard“, then a slight increase in fuel consumption is to be expected. If the car is driven like before the tuning was installed and the higher performance is used for acceleration and overtaking, fuel consumption remains almost original, under certain circumstances consumption may even decrease.
Additionally the use of special air filters can lead to reduced fuel consumption due to higher air mass and therefore more efficient combustion of the fuel.
In Agricultural Machinery reduced fuel consumption is achieved by the increase in performance and being able to work more efficiently, ie. plowing or harvesting more acres per hour. This in turn reduces overall work hours and saves fuel.
Does the power enhancement have a negative impact on the engine?
We take great care to ensure that our performance increases are within the power reserve of engine, gearbox etc. Meaning you can enjoy the improved performance of your car without affecting its longevity and long term reliability.
Are there any changes to the brake or exhaust system necessary?
No, you don’t need to modify the brake or fit a different exhaust system.
Is it possible to install a power module on vehicles with automatic transmissions?
Yes, you can use the STEINBAUER Power Enhancement also for vehicles with automatic transmissions.
Is it possible to “undo” or turn off the tuning?
Yes, it is. Simply unplugging of the STEINBAUER module returns your car to its original specifications. Remember that our power module remains invisible to the vehicle ECU.
Can I switch the STEINBAUER module on and off?
With an optional remote control you can also turn off the STEINBAUER Power Enhancement while you are driving.
Do I need to have my vehicle serviced more often?
The standard service intervals remain unchanged.
