    hmmm no offense but theyre not exactly the most tuneable of motors.

    Uh you may be able to get a remap for them, but you really wont be looking at getting alot of extra power out of them.

    PM ZS as he knows his stuff about diesels, or seems to anyway

    A proper remap done on the rollers should see 105hp if you're lucky with a good 1.7DTi and minimal black reek.

    Should bring you to 2.0DTi territory, and about the limit of where I'd want to be running the F17 'box (it's only rated to 170lb/ft).

    Oddly, a 2.0DTi (100hp standard) remapped will only gain 30hp too - it's almost like Vauxhall took the engines and removed 30hp off the power output to keep service intervals high for fleet managers.

    Before splashing out on a remap, do the easy mods first - get a decent sized exhaust on there, lose the cat, do the usual airbox and panel filter mods, and perhaps even consider a bigger intercooler. Then is the time to go for the remap once you've all those bits done.
