    Default 1.9 CDTi (150) driving styles with BSR Remap

    To all 1.9 CDTi (150) owners with BSR remap installed. I have had my BSR remap for approx 4 months now and really love the driving experience. I was wondering who has experimented with different driving styles to get the best acceleration without screwing the engine to much?
    In my experience, the best and smoothest acceleration is to have the rev range from 2k rpm to just over 3k rpm then change up and repeat all the way up the gears. I find this the smoothest for rapid progress, I rarely go above 3.5k revs and this appears to tie in with the standard power/torque graph that BSR has on their site for this engine. Any comments?

    The power on mine comes in very noticably at 2500 rpm so it's a matter of making sure the rev's don't drop below 2500 when changing gear

    tbh most of the time mine doesn't even go near 3k.
    2.5k seems to be the change up spot on mine for a good pull through the gears.

    i'll only pass 3k if i'm really in a bad mood and thrashing the car.

    Same as Ian really, you seem to get max torque at 2.5K up to about 3.5k.

    Sometimes the sports button gives the added interest of making the car feel like it's not going to stop pulling.

    I dont have the BSR but do have the Regal EDS and I love it to bits. Mine is an auto and its really quick in that mode but for the ultimate umph I select the manual and change up in between 3500 and 4000

    Taking the car to the redline once warmed up occasionally is good for it to be honest, cleans it out and lets it rev a bit more freely I think... If you never take it up high, when you do for overtaking etc it won't know what's hit it...

    I occassionally take it to 3.5 to 4 K rpm and hold it there for 2 or 3 minutes to clear the cobwebs. Only when up 2 temp tho
