    Default Tuning potential of a SRi 150

    Hi guys New guy here,

    Currently on the hunt for a veccy SRi, have almost gave up on going for a 3l v6 cdti due to the rarity of good examples and their appararent dislike of tuning.

    so i've decided i wll probably settle for a SRI 150 1.9 CDTI

    firstly, what sort of tuning options are out there for the 150? it seems i can only see tuning boxes/remaps and the odd downpipe. is there any companies out there specialising in tuning the CDTi's? i'm thinking of going beyond the Remap only. ie hybrid turbo cams etc etc

    what are the stock box and clutch capable of taking? and is there a supply of uprated clutches and flywheels available as per the vag scene?


    sorry for the obvious lack of knowledge but i've been scouring the site and google to no avail and i've been firrmly entrenched in the vag scene for the last couple of years

    A re-map is about as far as you can go. The gearbox can handle 200bhp and 300lb/ft with ease as long as you don't hammer it.

    I have had 4 1.9 CDTi's (200,000 miles in total) 3 out of the 4 were re-mapped and never gave me an issue.

    There are hybrid turbo's available but it has been proven that they don't offer much in the line of extra power.

    The intercooler is the same as the VXR Vectra so no real need to change that either.

    Get a BSR remap mate, very reliable, and they dont fool around tricking the engine like the tunning boxes do
