    DIY tuning!?

    hi...1995 astra 1.7td...isuzu engine...just wondering if anyones done any tuning on these motors...im thinking of doing this myself and am looking for some tips...

    is it difficult to increase fuel flow in the pump?how can this be adjusted?
    and how much can the boost pressure be increased...i have fitted a boost gauge so i can keep an eye on it....

    i would prefer to have this done professionally but im over in Ireland and theres no one to do it here!!!
    cheers for any advice lads and lasses...

    If you're in N. Ireland, there's a guy who will sort it out for you no bother. He's in Ballyclare Co. Antrim - let me know if that's handy to you.

    You should be able to get about 100hp out of an Isuzu TD with the right "adjustments".
