    Default 2.0DTI Tuning box available? Caterman work?

    Hi,

    Still thinking about a remap for my 2.0DTI, but having sen Vectra 120's caterman box I wondered if there is one appropriate for my engine.

    not in caterman style..

    you'll need a VP44 style box which would cost around the same as a remap ( circa £400)

    £400 quid, that sucks! Boo Hoo.

    Regarding remaps then, what about the DIY approach via OMBII. Looking for general opinions - has anyone done it on this engine?

    forget 'driveway' remaps...you need a proven one....

    paying the dosh hurts, but less than the cost of possible damage to the fuelpump/ecu and other components...that could run into £1000's...

    the better option is always a remap...much kinder to the engine than a tuning box

    vp44 is the model of the fuelpump..
