    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.2 V6

    Year : 05

    1.9 cdti with a box or remap will be pushing out around 200 bhp.
    0-60 should be in the high 7's to low 8's

    Why.... have you been mauled by one ?

    Mid range accelleration is very good on the 1.9 & 3.0 Diesels as they have anything betwee 400-500 NM Torque (when they are tuned)

    Oddly enough, no, not in that <-!

    Diesels always seem torquey but slow after take off.
    In fact the only thing that has surprised me lately was a StreetKa!

    Makes ya wonder how far you could tune a 3.0 V6 lump, I think the stated 0-60 is about 8.4 secs in standard form, imagine it with a re-map, and modded cams and turbo.

    Where's the lick lips icon?
