    Default 0-60mph times for tuned 1.9cdti 150's?

    Iv never considered doing a 0-60mph test in me car coz basiclly I dont have a trip computer or sat nav, but im interested to know what people think the time would be in comparisson to the book figures of 8.8 seconds for 150bhp pre-faclift cars.

    With a tuning box, K&N Panel Filter and Air box mod my car is producing 185bhp proven on a rolling road, but now I have a dual exit stainless cat back system which should help the engine breathe a little better and free up a few more horses.

    Any1 got an idea of how these extra horses will improve my 0-60mph time and by how much?

    Accoring to this site and having changed the curb weight into pounds(3377) from kg(1532) it says 7.83sec based on 190bhp, not bad eh!

    I thought on a diesel you wouldn't get anything.

    I thought that diesels don't require back pressure (apparently you can run a diesel with no exhaust and have no power loss, just more noise). This is why you can add dual exhausts to a diesel with no bad affects. Where as adding dual exhausts on a petrol will cause a lack of back pressure in turn causing a loss in power. I might be wrong, must double check.

    Wouldn't bother with this so-called calculator since raw bhp is only 1 of many measures of an engine's performance. The shape of the power and torque across the band are important too (to say nothing of the driver's gearchanging skills!).

    Agreed.

    Changing gear correctly and at the right point in the rev-range for each gear can make all the difference.Although if I were interested in 0-60 times I probably wouldn't have bought a diesel in the first place!

    Ones assuming you are meaning if you are interested in the fastest time to get 60 that you probabbly wouldnt have bought a diesel? I bought a diesel but was still interested in the 0-60 time just as I was interested in the diesel consumption, cost per mile etc etc.

    Obviously the limit of second gear being under 60mph on the 1.9CDTI, you won't get stunning times no matter what you do. Taking out the cats and scilencers can lead to over boosting and premiture thrust bearing failure (according to turbo manufactures). I think I got down to about 7 seconds at best 0-60 measurement but haven't done it for over a year as the clutch just doesn't deserve that punishment.
