    Default Insignia 2.0 Twin Turbo diesel.

    As most of you know, the Insignia 2.0 CDTTi 190 appeared on the Vauxhall website and then disapeared again.

    It has now been delayed until mid 2011. The reasons being that all involved said there was not enough difference in performance between this at 190PS and 295lb/ft and the 160PS 256lb/ft single turbo diesel.

    Add this to the extra £1500 or so for this engine and it was considered not worth it. So the engine is being further developed for the Insignia application to produce more torque and make a much bigger performance gap from the 160.

    Just altering the map for more torque sent the emmisions too high for the current market so they are working to get it sorted for mid 2011.

    I have to say, I think this is a good move from Vauxhall/Opel to wait until they get it right instead of just getting it out to market and it getting slated.

    So the Twin Turbo Diesels first outing will be in the Astra GSi next summer. Apparently the twin turbo diesel as it stands (190PS 300lb/ft) works very well in the Astra and is a quick car.

    All Vauxhall models excluding the Corsa and Meriva will have the option of the CDTTi engine.

    I would have thought it would have a DPF, don't see what the issue with DPF is, I spoke to my dealer today and they rarely see any issues with them.

    Even the swirl flaps don't appear to be much of an issue since they were modified in 2006/2007.

    tbh I have heard alot of bad things about the DPF - the get choked and also you have to hammer the car - but to what extent to you 'hammer' to stop the soot buildign up badly? Then there are the complaints of the MPG going to down badly.

    I was told by a deisel specialist the modern deisel needs a blast - a good amount of the time. Since I heard this I always sit in the 5th at 70 on the motor way that way in all probability the EGR is closed and the swirl flaps are opened allowing the manifold to empty of soot.

    £500 is a bit steep for a manifold and £1000+ for a DPF - thats sore tbh.

    I never thrash mine to be honest, I sit on the motorway for hours at a time at 60mph. It does get a proper drive now and then but not all the time.

    Thats what they were meant for really, motorway mile crunchers.

    Where did the 160ps engine come fron considering saab had the twin turbo engine already it seems a bit odd that it just didn't go straight in

    I can only guess that it was internal politics?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Not politics, the 130 and 160 engines are a direct development of the 1.9 16v. The newer cars were type approved for the 2.0 and not the 1.9.

    So the 1.9 TT was never going in anyway.
