    Replace timing belt kit and waterpump with genuine parts, then i'd recommend a full service.

    Didn't think the tunning boxes worked well with the dpf's? Think in yourcase you'll be better off having a re-map.

    A service is planned too. Timing belt will have to wait a few weeks until I can afford to get it done.

    Ive read a lot of positive posts regarding the tuning boxes over on vvoc. The dtuk boxes are supposed to take the 150 bhp up to 200bhp with a massive increase in torque too.

    Remaps only take the 150 to 190.
    From what I've read the tunning boxes don't work aswell on cars with dpf's and can cause issues.

    I have a dtuk crd-t box fitted (meant to be 215bhp) and I would recommend it, However my car doesn't have a dpf (or any cats)
