    Power-tuning?

    Hey all.

    After driving home from work tonight, I was thinking... I might build a fresh engine for my Astra.

    Now, I'd like to stay diesel if I could, I currently have a 2.0Di, so I was wondering, would it be worth stripping down, and rebuilding - with tweak - a 2.2 as a replacement?

    Is it worth it?

    When i say tweaks, I mean, nice, smoother porting on the head, maybe bigger valves? rasie the CR up a little, bigger/better turbo?

    Or am I thinking completely wrong?
    I will admit, I've been driving the bosses van for a while, and quite like how the power really hits you, but thats a '07 1.7CDTi Combi Van haha.

    Cheers

    OO I was thinking about converting, but worried bout the extra boost etc, and compression ratios.

    Can you please keep me informed how u get on?

    No remap as yet, but its on the cards.
