    Well it is a desiel.


    But seriously: Try a Dtuk box or a remap. Might help quite a bit.

    A turbo diesel will always have that little bit of lag whilst your waiting for the turbo to kick in hence the term turbo-lag. You could use a performance panel filter, performance exhaust and a remap to gain you a few extra ponies. But don't expect miracles the Astra G DTI lumps aren't as good as the new CDTI lumps for tuning.

    Check your AFM is OK - a Y20DTH should pull like a bugger in 1st and 2nd. Mine had serious difficulties keeping grip in 1st and 2nd on a dry road if I gave it plenty of welly. Would also pull straight up to the limiter in 5th (122mph on GPS).
