    Check the diesel tuning forum, loads about V6 boxes there.

    Stay away from any sort of tuning on the 3.0 CDTi, the pre-facelift was slightly better for tuning, but the facelift forget it.

    They are a bullet proof engine in standard form, but for tuning they can be very dodgy.

    I tempted fate when I mentioned "bullet proof" at my last service!
    Suffered a blocked SCV
    One thing with the 3.0 v6 CDTI, when it does go wrong get your blankety blank cheque book out, as any engine repair job is going to consume at least 1000 £1 coins!
    For that reason, don't even consider an engine modification
    Even if you do increase the torque, the transmission wouldn't be able to handle it, as it is already 5% below the maximum tolerance
