    It worked and produced good results but expect other issues to come along.

    I had a fully loaded estate car, 4 people in it and keeping with the convoy doing a steady 100mph lol to PVS

    Nutron is running one though with no problems?

    must admit my motor would probably keep up with that lot aswell and its standard apart from k'n filter, reason why im saying this is , with reference to an earlier thread ive seen 137mph (on private runway of course) and thats a fully laden car with full tank etc, and still pulling !IMO these 150 diesels are more powerful than people give them credit for!

    Remember that increased performance comes hand in hand with un-reliability matey.

    Go for NOS for that burst of power when you really need it. You're already running at 192bhp and (I'm guessing) over 300lbft of torque, so you're quicker than most already.

    All depends on what type of remap??. At Santa Pod a little while ago, plasma(Dean) got some awsome times up the strip and on the last run he add a tuning box and the smoke at the back, really bad and recorded the worst run of the day.
    I would leave it as it is.
