    Power please

    Hi i have recently gotten ahold of a 03 plate 1.7 dti, due to the fact that i blew my 1.6 up.

    I really like the car but one thing bugs me.....the lack of power and Ooomph. Once it is rolling it isnt too bad but i always get the feeling of wanting more with it. I am aware there really isnt much that i can do to it but any advise would be good.

    I did contemplate changing the turbo but would that increase useable power or just lag and give more of a delay than steven hawkins muscle reflex? I know an exhaust may release a couple more horsies but is it overly necesary.

    Im just spit balling here but advise would be great.
    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot.

    If you have £260 pound spare get an ECU remap from Celtic Tuning.

    The car then feels like a 2.0DTi....or better (depending on your particular ECU).

    You can release the greatest amount of horses in one stage this way...

    I was thinking of a remap but my engine is the isuzu so is that feasable at all?

    I have just emailed them for a quote and hopefully for them to answer a few queries, so time will tell.
