    Hi!

    I want to remap but I read that if there is too much torque you can ruin the drivetrain...

    Are there safe figures to increase to?

    Cheers Folks

    It is very easy to make too much torque on a remap in that car , but a proper remap wont hurt much.

    That engine comes with "only" 400nm stock and you should be safe under 600nm , so you have a huge safe zone.
    About power , there where 330cds running 300hp in my country with only clutch exhaust and remap.
    You can make 280hp with no problem

    As above.. they can take big power and respond well to it..

    Just make sure the car has been well looked after etc..

    Pay attention for clutch slip, the clutch will wear over time along with the flywheel, but as long as the torque levels are smoothly adjusted, they handle the extra power.

    One thing you may have to do is pay extra attention to the gear ratios you choose, and use the correct gear. With the extra torque, the car will have plenty of pull in higher gears, which can lead to drivers staying in an higher gear than is beneficial.

    Accelerating from low engine speeds in a high gear will put a lot of vibration through the transmission which will lead to excessive wear on the dual mass flywheel.
    You might even already be familiar with the situation, which was often seen in older diesels where after gentle cruising in flowing traffic leads to a hill, and acceleration on the hill leads to a loud vibration or rumble, and little acceleration.

    That rumble comes from the individual pulses of the power strokes from an engine at low speeds compared to the road speed, and that vibration has to be damped by the dual mass flywheel.
    Swapping down a gear or two increases the engine speed relative to the wheels and smooths out the power delivery.

    Hey folks,

    First of all thanks for the in-depth replies! Great!

    I have been delighted with the car, just love it... but... I couldn't help noticing a small drop in power lately (Maybe I'm just getting used to it!). Also, my MPG seems lower than most of you guys, I mainly drive on B roads and get around 34mpg (29mpg flooring it) but even a 300+ mile round trip on motorways only saw 38mpg... I understand it's a three litre lump but can't understand why are other folks getting better?

    So that's how I ended up here.. and what a wealth of info there is too!

    With regards to making sure it's well looked after, I got a one year warranty from the dealer so all the little niggles I found are now gone. If you could suggest anything else please do... but here's my plans.... so far! Parts are in the mail

    Oil Change,
    Vortex type oil breather
    Oil, Air, Pollen and Fuel filter replacement
    EGR valve disconnect (And clean anyway while i'm there)
    Clean Intake Manifold while it's off and replace seals
    Swirl Flap blanks (I know I didn't need to buy them now, after paying for them! Lol!)

    Then the remap... Think 280bhp'll do nicely for me, the cars fast enough already just want that little bit extra, not enough to ruin it!

    Anyway, cheers for the advice, appreciate it.. Just if there's anything else you can suggest, let me know!

    Thanks
    Andy

    P.S Any thoughts on Angel Tuning?

    got mine done on the 27th 260 bhp now,as said all parts if never been changed will go in the future, maybe a little quicker if your using all the torque all the time, mines got 100,000 on it now and the car runs mint
