RSTuner long term safety

  CLio 172
Hi everyone,

Really considering getting an RSTuner but worried about the long term safety of it? I don't really see many new posts about it, only posts from years ago so wondering if its safe to use long term?

Also, does anyone know any good places to buy one second hand? Thank you

THe 98 RON map is totally fine, if you flash the stupid Pops N bangs map then try to run a catalyst you could ruin it.

You don't really use the tuner long term, its temporarily plugged in and it remaps the standard ECU. As mentioned, pops and bang map is pointless and will damage the car long term, but the basic remap will cause no issues.

I’ve been running the 98RON map on mine for probably over 6 years with zero issues.

From what I recall I have had mine on my Clio Trophy since 2010 when I bought it (Was done before I owned the car)

I have had no issues and no problems with the 98Ron map and I also believe the RPM rises slightly.

I would love to get the car down to EFI to have it correctly mapped and done but time is a massive issue.
