    Talking Finally got my Veccie back!! whoop whoop, now to start modding! :D

    So I finally got my veccie back on monday after a bit of a long winded issue after I bought it, which you can read about in my other thread should you so wish:

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...es+timing+belt

    Basically the water pump seized though and threw the timing etc, so had to fight the garage to get them to fix it as I had just bought the car.

    Done about 150 miles in her and all seems well, drives nice and smooth like she did when I first got her so happy days.

    Now on to the important stuff . . . . modding!

    Where to start on the 1.9 diesel 150's, cheapest easiest power gains etc??? Anyone wanna offer up some advice? Also is there any advisable precautionary maintenance should be done? Given what's already happened, I want to make sure that any other risky parts are changed where reasonable.

    I have read about the DMF but that would probably not be worth doing as not sure it would be much cheaper to do now than it would if it failed would it???

    Yes mate, they did! Had to get it done by an independent engine builders down there way so they could sort it, but at least it got done. The guy who did the work seemed decent enough too, he's called me a couple of times to make sure everything is ok.

    Happy days!
