    Your kind of in the same boat as me with mine. Non turbo engines, are not as easy to tune as the turbo's. I think a different air filter will give you a few break.

    If you have a look in the petrol tuning threads, there is some stuff about the 3.2's that may help you out.

    Who said it can't be mapped? I know only a few places will map a 3.2.

    You're looking at changing cams bigger injectors, piggy back ecu or better still fit a supercharger, after all that sell it and buy either the 2.0turbo or vxr

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Yes it can be mapped, but the gain will be minimal. I'd expect you to see no more than about 6bhp to 8bhp gain from a map at most on the 2.2 and the map will be damn expensive because not many companies offer one.

    usual mods i used to do , was k&n 57i kit, fse boost valve, and decat and sports exhaust.

    might see up 10 bhp if the boost valve is set up right, will cost around 400 - 500 quid mind, stick it on a dyno
