    Default A few questions - 3.0 CDTI Signum

    Hello everyone...

    As i got my Signum last week i have a few questions if you guys can help me with...

    I wanted to know how this baby will act with box declarated from original 184 to 230 bhp and 465 Nm? I hear that fuel pump knows to die with using it. Is that right or? And if it is right can it be prevented?
    What about the clutch, can it handle it well? (it's an automatic i should mention)

    TNX in advance

    good chance your fuel pump will blow and you dont have a clutch as its an auto you have a torque converter which are usually pretty strong , not sure the gearbox would handle it though but may be wrong

    Fuel pump is likely to die, you may also experience limp mode.

    The gear box is rated to 400nm peak, though a number are running more than this (doesnt mean its ok to to so though)

    Is there any way to be a step in front of this... Like getting a stronger/better pump even before putting the box?

    Leave it as it is. Gearbox might take it for a while and so might the pump, but with a bad box/remap the engine will give up first.
