    Default CDTI 150, 10k Boost De-Coked & New Boost Sensor

    So,

    I finally managed to apply the 10k Boost stuff to dad's CDTI 150 and the amount of smoke that bellowed out of the back was INSANE !!!

    So, after 3-4 repetitions, I then changed the boost sensor I bought recently, and I must say, I have noticed a difference!

    I took it for a blast and could feel it starting to pull away from 1.5k rpm. MILES BETTER THAN BEFORE.

    Previously, it would start to think about moving after 1.8k RPM, but now I honestly could feel some positive movement @ 1.5k RPM. To test it, I took it up a hill and got it to 3rd gear at about 1.2 rpm and gradually as it reached 1.5k rpm, it started to pull away!

    VERY HAPPY! , EVEN my dad noticed a difference.

    Still getting a little wobble on idle, but the main prob is better so happy days!

    Merry xmas dad. LOL!


    Bye bye Vec B

    Dan, the boost sensor was a Vx jobbie, but fortunately, I didnt buy it from Vx as I got it from another member on here who bought it but didnt need it....so it cost me less than the stealers!
