    Oh, and they're generally pretty crap. Tend to make the fragile pumps self detonate quicker than usual.

    fairly self explanatory.....

    the DTi's don't like tuning.. you 'can' tune them, but not by big amounts..

    I tried to get my 2.2DTi remapped and the machine could not read the ECU. There ave been problems on DTi's with remap's, and for what you pay, and the gains you get, IMO its not really worth it... I have decided to make mine look good, as tuning for the DTi's is pretty hard to come by.
