    Air box mod and k&n panel filter that's it really, btw this thread just turn into a bunch of people telling you it can't be tuned if its a z30dt as the fuel pump on one that people have heard about didn't like it. But there are few members that are running boxes and remap's.

    Vehicle : Opel Signum

    Trim : Sport

    Z30 and Y30 pumps are indeed the same. The only thing I'd be concerned with when mapping a Z30DT is the possibility of prematurely clogging the DPF.

    Mines been re-mapped (and going in for some further tweaks shortly), a de restricted airbox and piper cross filter and a 3" straight through exhaust from the turbo. There are further mods in the pipeline but they haven't been thought out at all yet. As far as result, it goes like stink, it gladly pulls lengths on the old mans y30dt and that's running the same remap.

    glad to see the regulars have already kept you informed

    It's also got its own thread titled "straight through on a 3.0 CDTI" all of the comments and discussions when the video first went up are there. I have to say I am very pleased with the sound
