    Vivaro 1.9 CDTi

    Hi Guys,

    I own & drive a 1.9 CDTi (100bhp, 6speed) Vivaro as I am a self employed plumber. What I am wondering is if it can be tuned to give the same power as say the 150 bhp Astra which I assume has the same engine? I know that dieseltuning.co.uk can supply a plug & play box but that only takes it to around 140bhp, but the Astra tuning box takes it to around the 190bhp mark.

    Would it be too much to have 190bhp in a van

    Also, what other mods can be done in regards to airbox & air intake etc to improve these?


    Any help appreciated.

    P.S. Already have an Irmy grille fitted

    I got a reply from Dieseltuning.co.uk and they say that the engine in my van is a Renault engine and can only be tuned to 140bhp. I may go for their tuning box next year.

    yeah it runs the Renault F9Q engine - I know Lexmaul do some bits n bobs for this engine and iirc Regal have some info on their site about this engine. Defo worth an upgrade IMO.

    Cheers Geordie Bandit, I'll give them a look.

    BTW, don't suppose you know anyone looking for a 600 Bandit do you? I've got a clean P plate one in my garage for sale. £1100, loads of extras. Drop me a pm if you do.
