    Its not going to be a rocket ship mate, its only packing 100bhp for a fair old weight of motor.

    Is it smoking heavily or using a lot of fuel??

    Dont know about bigger turbos, and I dont know if you can get a tuning box for the DTI either. The CDTI is a far more tuneable engine, but I'd say that the DTI lump is probably the more solid and reliable engine.

    Yes you do, I have one, Steinbauer, expensive but safe on the diesel pump and good power increases

    fittin a box isnt difficult. I had a legendary 'Caterman' box on my CDTI until a few months ago.
    Took it up to a touch under 190bhp. Went like a bullet, but shredded the tyres in the first 3 gears.
    Gone, but not forgotten.....
