    Default new vectra maybe

    well been searching basically since i had my accident in vectra totalling it well and truely

    now ive seen a few vectras im interested in all diesels as mileage im doing is kinda ridiculous now

    anyways i no i wud like the cdti engine but the dti is more in my price bracket mostly the 2 litre but ive been told lots of horror stories of the pumps packing up

    now is this true? and if so what sort of price did it cost you to repair

    also how tuneable are the dti engines the 2 litre ive had a few diesels before and have played about before but only a couple have been electric fuel pumps im thinkin remap, boost turned up, air filter, exhaust the basics as such

    cheers slick

    The old DTi engines are pretty reliable to be fair, yes you will get the odd ones that play up but on the whole they are a good engine.

    But you won't get much from tuning unfortunatly. The money you spend on tuning one, you may as well buy a 1.9 150. they are becoming quite affordable now.

    A 2.2DTi will give you more than 1.9cdti 150 power with a 300 quid tuning box

    Problems with DTi's mate.

    You want to search CDTis then compare a list of problems.
