    Not really, what do you expect from a 1.7?....

    However WhiteVanMan on here claims to have spent not too much but got some very good power

    The Eco4 was designed for fuel economy - it has longer gears, different diff. It really is for tootling along the motorway at 70 while the driver calculates his MPG.

    If you want it to go a bit quicker, first throw in a standard F17 out of a normal 1.7DTi. Then you can get it remapped which will take you to about 105hp. Will totally change the car for the better.
