    Question 2.0 DTI Tuning ?

    Hey there,

    I am thinking of getting an Astra G 2.0 DTI SRI (the 100 bhp one) and i have a few questions,

    First off what am i going to be looking at MPG wise ? generally i do drive sensibly but like most of you i do have the odd days where i stretch the cars legs so to speak !

    Secondly what can i think about tuning wise ? i am thinking a chip thats meant to give 130bhp, a larger front mounted intercooler and some form of modded/new induction system, What can i expect the power to be like after these mods and will i still recieve good MPG with them fitted ?

    I hope you can help as i am not highly clued up on diesels and they are seeming to be the way forwards

    Thanks

    Jonny

    Hi Johhny,


    With any Diesel Tuning Box you should see an increase in your MPG, but it all depends on your driving style. For pre 2002( VP-PUMP with 1 Plug) 2.0 DTI's it is a simple plug and play Tuning Box. On Post 2002( VP-PUMP with 2 plugs) im afraid the only option you have is a wire in box.

    If your are interested we're currently offering Astra-Sport Members a Discount on the FULL range of POWERKLICK tuning boxes including the Digital VPC Box.
    This would give you 124bhp and 290nm of Torque.

    Our current retail is £280, but we could offer you 10% off that particular box.

    Many thanks

    Thanks for your reply andrew

    Do you know if Tech 2 can still enter the ECU if this chip is fitted ?

    The box system's trump casd is that it doesnt interfere with the original ECU, so all looks normal for servicing/main dealer and diagnostics.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    In a word-YES.

    The system doesnt have any effect on the ecu ( well apart from telling it a few lies) but this wont effect Tech2 in any way.

    If the car is under Warranty we'd always advise that you take the unit off before you go back to the Dealer . But thats the beauty of the PowerKlick systems as 90% of them take 20 mins max to take off and reinstall.

    We also advise people to inform there insurance company if u decide to re-map or add a tuning Box

    Also consider a remap. OBDTune do a remap which brings you up to 130hp/210lb-ft which is standard for the 2.2DTi. With exhaust and airbox mods you could be pulling towards 140hp easily.

    Our local OBDTune rep is charging £200 for the remap.

    Fuel consumption on my standard car is averaging out at 42mpg over the 3 months I've had it. Worst I've had is 38mpg, and that included a 100 mile 120mph run.

    Thanks for the replys guys, much appreciated,

    a question though, if the system is wired into the car (it will be a 2004 model so i assume will be) then would it be possible for me to remove/reinstall the system myself ? i am pretty good with this stuff and have tools etc,,,

    I would like to be achieving in the region of 150 bhp, do you think this would be attainable with the chip, airbox mods, decat and full system and a larger intercooler ?

    Thanks again

    The tuning boxes pretty much just plug into the big connector on the ECU. Now, only thing is on the 2.0DTi in the Astra, the ECU is rammed hard against the radiator at the front of the engine, which can make it a little tricky. But, it's certainly something that's easily done.

    Hi Johnny,m

    With the modifications you're planning then i dont think ud be too far away from your target of 150bhp Our box would be sent with full fitting instructions and photos, and we're only a phone call away
