    Red face having hard time with 04 plate 1.7 cdti

    hi, im new here, i have just brought my astra which also happens to be my first diesel, im still gutted i have got to get rid of my celica but i was suprised at how well my astra drives and am falling in love with it (well could do with a touch more uummmppphhh) tho

    anyways, i know i have a 1.7cdti engine but i cant fiure out the power 80 or 100? ive search everywhere on here and it says 17dtl or 17dth but i cant find where it says that anywhere!!

    ive tried popping the bnet but seems the cable has broke :-(


    on the log boog it says model 1.7cdti then underneath says veriant - DZ11.

    hope someone can help as i was looking at getting a crd2 box but heard the 80 doesnt take too kindly, well i think i have got everything straight but knowing me i have read posts wrong and got all my info wrong.

    I believe the MK4 1.7 CDTi was only available in the 80bhp version but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I think you'll have the ECO4 model of Astra?

    As said, MK4 was only available in 80ps guise, it wasnt until the MK5 came out that the 100ps became available.

    You wont see the gains the likes of the 1.9CDTi;s do but you'll still get a good 20ps gain out of the car so youll definitely see an improvement with how it picks up imo
