    If it's the 150PS 1.9CDTI then it is quick and easy to fit and will transform the car. If it's the 120PS version then it's a bit more difficult to fit but much the same result. If you're out of warrenty then take out a third party one just for peace of mind. Some pumps have failed both on standard and tuned cars and a tuning box could hassen the demise of a poor pump. If the pump is a good one then you'll have no snags as with the vast majority of people. Don't be put off by this though as if you have a bad pump you will likely have problems anyway but tuning can show up faults faster.

    I have tuned my 1.9CDTI to over 250bhp and had no major problems in 30K but peace of mind is priceless

    I've been running a box on mine for 45000 miles, only problem so far was an EGR valve but they are a known cr*p component, couldn't be without the thing now, drove it 1/2 a mile without the other week after picking it up from the garage & had to stop in the 1st layby to refit it

    If you do ever have pump problems, can Vauxhall/warranty companies find out by TECH2 - ing if you've had one fitted...?
    How much are these tuning boxes, as i was thinking of a remap rather than a box....
