    Mods to the 1.9, what have you done?

    As title really, what mods have you done to your 1.9 cdti.

    i know about the boxes and remaps.

    what other things have people done? bigger intercooler? performancefilter? exhaust? down pipe? has people turned the boost up? or is that electric?

    Nope it hasnt made any difference to any soot coming out of the exhaust at all. Its just the same as before, but a little more responsive and revs easier

    Removing the cat in a diesel is perfectly fine. There is no emissions test for a diesel, only a smoke test. And i've not known of any of my mates with a diesel with the cat taken out, to fail an mot on smoke.

    Get a performance pannel filter from the likes of Green, Courtenay, or Pipercross etc. And a pre-cat replacement pipe is meant to help your turbo spool up a lot quicker.
    A good remap will cost you around 400-500 or so, from the likes of Courtenay, Regal, Thorney. A remap is much better for your engine than a tuning box is. I would never use a box.

    Stage 1 remapping on a diesel is just generally considered as a remap.

    Stage 2 is adding a free flow exhaust system onto the above package.

    Stage 3 is adding a large front mount intercooler.

    And Thorney list a stage 4 which included a hybrid turbo.
