    Default Most Gains From 1.9CDTi 150 or 3.0CDTi V6

    After deciding i want a new car (currently have a 2.2 Direct SRi) and reading some of the threads on the forum. I have decide that unfortunately i can't justify spending that sort of money on a VXR and i have just about decided on a diesel.

    I was wondering which engine can i get the most gains out of and which is more tuneable. I would like something fast and reliable with the fuel ecomony of the diesel.

    I have been researching and know that some people have gained possible up to 250 bhp and 400lb/ft form the 1.9CDTi 150 but what gains are capable from the 3.0CDTi V6 as you many of you will know start at 181bhp with 295lb/ft.

    I look forward to hearing your comments!

    If you want to play with engine, don't get v6 as they are highly strung as it is

    1.9 I admit has had alot more bad press than the v6, but can easily be tuned and is alot cheaper to run
