    Default New boy needs help.

    Hello all, i'm the new boy here today. Not long got my 03 2.0 dti saloon veccy. Just done my first upgrade. De cloged the air box, took the restricter out, put k and n panel filter in, and took plastic piece off from behind the grill because it was just resticting the flow. For a £40 upgrade, what a difference. Car does'nt feel breathless when starting off and seems to have a lot more get up and go. Need help deciding whats best though. a plug in chip, or a re-map. Looking for best power to ££££ ratio.

    yep as you say k@n and derestricted airbox work very well on the diesels thats the same combo ive got on mine and its well worth it, youll notice a bigger difference when the colder weather comes in , as for the tuning boxes they appear to make a huge difference for very little outlay (about150-200 quid) there are plenty of diesel companies recommended by the forum so i would check them out first mate never heard of anyone remapping 2.0 diesel but im pretty sure it can be done , good luck mate

    TBH there is not a lot you can do to improve performance to this engine m8
    A remap (if available for this) might help but will not give a lot. A tuning box will give about 25bhp on this engine.
    You could always replace the exhaust system which will help a bit too.
