Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does "additional electronics" mean?"
    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 20 years. Every product in the STEINBAUER range has been developed and produced in-house. There is no substitute for quality.To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage Questions" button.
  • What is the difference between STEINBAUER tuning & the other brands of performance products?
    One of the main differences is that STEINBAUER does not change rail pressure. It changes the signals to the injectors only. Each unit is individually mapped.
  • Will the STEINBAUER power enhancement Module effect my fuel economy?
    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. ploughing or harvesting more acres per hour. This in turn reduces overall work hours and saves fuel.

  • Will fitting a STEINBAUER Module affect my warranty?
    The STEINBAUER product is an after market product. The engine manufacturers can not void your warranty just because you have this product fitted. In the United States consumers are protected the Magnuson Moss Act. The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act prohibits automobile manufacturers and dealers from voiding a vehicle’s warranty because an aftermarket part or a part not made by the original manufacturer was installed on said vehicle. Alright, so let’s translate that into regular people speak: your warranty for the most part will NOT be voided because you’ve installed an aftermarket part. Good. This act also prevents the dealer from requiring you to have all your repairs done at the dealership or from only installing replacement parts that are OEM.
  • What is the specific wording of the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act?
    “No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer’s using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name…” Now here’s the problem with that wording… say what?

  • How does the STEINBAUER Module fit to the engine?
    The STEINBAUER PowerModules in almost all cases are a plug-in fitment, using original plugs. They will either plug in at the engine ECU or directly to the injectors
  • 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.
  • Is the STEINBAUER power enhancement Module adjustable?
    The unit comes pre-set. We have done the Research & Development on the settings, however if fine adjustments are required then this can be done by removing the back cover & following the instructions on the back label. We can also customize units to meet specific customer requirements. (eg: Rosenbauer)
  • Does the PowerModule change the Common Rail Pressure?
    The STEINBAUER Module does not change the rail pressure of the common rail fuel systems. The STEINBAUER system changes the signals to the injectors only.
  • 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 effecting its longevity and long term reliability.
  • Does the STEINBAUER Module show up on any of the engine manufacturers scan tools?
    No, they can not detect the STEINBAUER Module by using their scan tools. All the changes are done down stream of the engine ECU.
  • Are there any changes to the brake or exhaust systems necessary?
    No, you don’t need to modify the brake or fit a different exhaust system. Although fitting an enhanced exhaust system can affect the performance positively. We have done extensive testing with a number of different exhaust systems. The STEINBAUER Module with a bigger exhaust will give you increased power over the normal 20% without any great changes in exhaust temperatures. We have found that in most cases the standard setting is all you need when fitting an exhaust.
  • 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.
  • Do I need to have my vehicle serviced more often?
    The standard service intervals remain unchanged.
  • What do the lights mean on the back of the PowerModule?
    The lights tell us if the module is receiving an injection signal & in some cases the correct reference signal.
  • Why is it needed to fit a reference signal?
    To improve the way the STEINBAUER PowerModule acts. So the module can assure what the driver wants to have: Power enhancement or just driving. Without the reference signal the PowerModule can only estimate the values.
