    125bhp as standard. They often have a bit more than that standard when they leave the factory.
    The steinbauer tuning box is for the DTI.

    Someone did say they cleaned out their fuel filter housing when changing it, that improved the running although theirs was pretty gunked up. Can't hurt to clean it for the sake of it.

    On the bulkhead on the passenger side. From what I've read be warned that when you put the new filter in you need to fill the housing up with diesel and even then because it lets air into the system so it may take a while to start after. Because of this I've never actually changed mine as too worried about it not starting afterwards! Think though when you've done it once it's probably not that bad and I should just man up lol.
