    Default Veccy 1.9 CDTi vs A6 3.0 TDI

    OK mine is running a caterman, but you should have seen the look on this guys face when I gave chase after spotting 2 thick tell-tale puffs of smoke exiting the back of his A6... I overtook when he came off the gas and he certainly looked surprised at having not left a 1.9 for dead!

    After the road works he proceeded to try and lose me several times before I exited. I could see him checking his 'progress' in the mirror after booting it... and he must have been clearly wondering how the hellI was sticking to his rear bumper like glue in a 1.9! lol!

    OMG... just checked and it looks like these things are over 220 bhp too!!

    i sometimes leave the same impression on audi/bmw drivers.. those engines are really powerful (231hp for audi i think) and have tons of torque but they don't leave my chipped 1.9 in dust easily

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Trim : XP1

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 66000

    Default

    The CDTi 150 aren't slow cars out of the box, but with a box/remap they are seriously rapid motors that can surprise many road users.

    Its always nice to do that to Audi and Merc owners, had a 220CDI try it on this week, but they don't have enough under the bonnet to make it interesting anyway - but try he did !!!
