    Lightbulb Help Required For A Zafira 2.0DTi

    Hi,

    I'd like to purchase a Tuning Box for my 2002 Vauxhall Zafira 2.0DTi (Engine Y20DTH) to give both more Oomph and more mpg.

    As I am a complete novice with this sort of modification , is there someone out there who can advise where the Tuning box should go and what I should be looking for under the bonnet. Where is it located in the engine bay?

    For this type of engine,does anybody know if it is a simple one plug and play or does it require to be a hard wire/solder application

    Kind Regards,

    Trev012

    i recently got a DTUK box through a friend for one of the guys at my work.
    he has a vectra 1.9 cdti 150bhp.
    the box was fitted in 5 mins to a connector plug near the right hand side of the rail.
    it now has 200bhp and goes like a bloody rocket, hasnt affected mpg either.

    i'd visit the DTUK (diesel tuning uk) website to see what they have mate.

    This should have been in the Diesel Technical section, but no matter.

    Tuning boxes on the 2.0DTi are a nightmare - you need to hardwire them into the loom at the ECU, which in itself is next to impossible as it's all underneath the inlet manafold and EGR.

    Really, you're better off spending the money on a remap which needs no fussing about. Superchips do one at £450, and you'll probably get one cheaper from some of your local OBD tuning guys (my local guys do a live remap for about £250).

    A remap should see at least 130hp/210lb-ft which is the same as the 2.2DTi. If you are getting it remapped, they'll need to obtain a base map as the ECU can't be read, just written to. Get them to use the 2.0DTi map for the Vectra Estate, as it has a broader torque range to start off with compared to the Astra/Zafira/Vectra Hatch map.

    Thanks to all who replied,especially ZS for advising how difficult it was to fit. It's been a nightmare just trying to locate wher it goes under the bonnet so I guess I'll have to give that idea up and think seriously about a remap.
