    Default 3.0 v6 remap?

    3.0 v6 cdti remap. Is it a good idea or will it wreck the clutch/gearbox too easily? Not planing on using a plugin ie. bluefin etc.
    What kind of figures could i expect to see?

    It isn't so much that the clutch won't like it, it's more the fuel pump. Reading other threads about this, many have said that a tuning box and remap are advised against with the 3.0 V6 CDTi. HTH

    Especially the facelift - a definite no-no. Less so with the pre-facelift.

    a few people have had a remap with no problem. I'd wager more than have had a problem, but then thats still not good odds is it?

    Ive used a tuning box for the last 35k no problems and the car is transformed if a little smoky.

    Preface 3.0CDTI seems to work ok with tuning box.

    But with the facelift,like the one the OP has, it has more power/torque than the pre-facelift, and use of a remap or tuning box is not recommended .

    Preface and face lift have a habbit of going into limp mode on overtaking (hard acceleration)

    Im interested in a re-map for my pre-facelift V6 as well! I know a few people say that there are problems afterwards, but has anyone actually experienced this themselves? Surely a little bit more power isnt going to strain the fuel pump too much?

    Has anyone themselves had a remap or a tuning box on their v6?

    I had a tuning box on mine for about 5k, I think it killed the dual mass flywheel or at least started it rattling. Ian C ran his with the same box for 20k, no problems. However, are you prepared for a £2k+ bill for a new fuel pump if it does die?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Big Sig, did the tuning box cause this or was it your driving style mate?
    People tend to 'enjoy' the extra power that the box/remap produces.
