    50 bhp - Sounds a tad optimistic.

    Agreed it makes no difference in real 'driving' terms whether you hit the target figure or not. The increase in an already class-leading torque figure matters just as much if not more than the increase in power.

    Good to know you're liking it, anyway.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : CDTI158

    I'm sure the power will be excellent. These are quite a reputable diesel tuning firm.
    However, from a reliability point of view I'd worry. Can they honestly claim to have extensively tested this tuning package so soon after the Insignia release.. I don't know.
    Personally I'd wait a bit longer to see what BSR come up with for this engine. That's one tuner who certainly do a lot of testing.

    Very interesting reads about this product, the only issue I can see is that it is quite obvious from a servicing point of view, I had a focus a few years ago got that re-mapped via the OBD data port so it was virtually undetectable to the naked eye, these having a box installed under the bonnet is just a little concerning to me. I wonder if someone may develop a remap rather than a add on.........

    Was the original question to this thread targeted at what people thought it was like on a 2.0 CDTi i.e. an Insignia? If yes, are the experiences expressed above based on trials in an Insignia? Maybe that would make it clearer for anyone reading in conjuction with an Insignia to form a better view if it is worth considering for them.

    From a service point of view you can disconnect a box and replace the std connector in about 60 seconds.
