    Default Modding newbie - Advice please!

    Hi all. This question has probably been asked a million times but....

    What are the best performance mods that can be done for a 1.9 cdti 120ps?
    I'm looking for the best bhp gains for the money. Have fitted a tuning box on the commonrail pressure sensor and this has made the car a lot quicker, cost me £50. Is there anything else I can do that will give as much gain as this box for the price? Also is a re-map possible while using this box or will they simply cancel eachother out?

    Cheers guys/gals

    you wont get more bang for your buck than that mate. your best options would be get a remap and ditch the tuning box, remaps are much better for your engine and also they change alot of variables rather than just increased fuelling. on some remaps you can use the box as well but whats the point when youve just remapped it to perform. a remap is change to within safe limits adding a box as well may damage your car. as for other mods you can get a k&n panel or new air box, exhaust, intercooler, smooth intercooler piping and turbo upgrade. dont forget about other performance mods that dont add to the power but make it drive better eg. springs upgraded brakes, tyres etc
