    Diesel head tuning?

    Just out of curiosity, what kind of work can be carried out on a diesel head to improve performance and is it worth it?

    This would be intended for a DTI lump both 1.7 and 2l

    i guess you could get it ported and polished altho i havn't heard of any1 thats done it or any other work to the head for that matter maybe you could be the first? :P

    i think theres big gains to be found in the 2.0 dti engine if only i could work out where

    I honestly don't know what they were thinking with the 2L, the 1.7 pulls better and still out runs the 2.2 aswell but yea guess i would be... Its apparently good to get 124BHP from a 1.7 dti but it would be god to try for a sturdy 140-150 and 210+ ftlb

    I dont know what engine you have seen that for, CDTi possibly? Because they will map a standard 1.7 dti to 115bhp APPROX and mines got a decat, 1.9cdti box now with fine metal mesh filter and i am intenting on fitting the turbo and manifold [direct swap] from the corsa Ds 1.7 cdti 125bhp engine. Change my shells and then i'll take it back to them annd see if they can give me at least 150horses this would see me okay for a week
