    I wouldn't fit a tuning box to a 2.0 dti,as far as i know,the 2.0 dti fuel pumps are less reliable than the 2.2 dti fuel pumps.
    I would just drive it for what it is,even with a tuning box fitted,it will be no match for your v6,but it will be a lot better on fuel,and you won't be putting any unnecessary strain on your fuel pump.

    fitted a dieselexpress on my 120 today having tried one on a 150 last week ! it suggests running on setting 3 of 8 ! could barely tell the difference ! now running it on setting 5 and its better but i'm still not overly impressed !maybe the 120 just doesn't respond to tuning like the 150 does !>?
