i really need a really economical car and had set my heart on a 1.7cdti 100bhp but i have noticed that the 1.3 is better on fuel and only has 10bhp less. if i were to remap the 1.3 would that make it as good as the 1.7 for performance but also retain the economy ? i am not sure what to choose. the main exercise is cost but i dont want the car to bore me completely from a lack of power. the car will e spending its life doing 90miles per day on motorway with only 8 points where acceleration is needed.
i am coming from a 2.0d rover 25 with 99bhp and 177ft lbs of torque
please use this thread for any discussion on the two engines as ALL info will be really helpful to me
