    Right lads, I've fitted a K&N filter and have the £ for a remap (Up to £250) so heres the question. Do I go for a remap now, then maybe add a decat at a later date (will I need another map, or just a tweek?), or do I wait and get the decat 1st?

    I've seen that SP Tuning in Hinkley are doing 10% off in December, meaning a map would be £225 and their site quotes my 330d as gaining 30bhp and 90nm. Some of the other mappers are quoting up to 45bhp gains and nearly 500nm on a standard car, with prices varying from £225 to £265.

    I'd just like value for money, but also a good map. Decisions decisions

    To put it another way,

    Standard car + K&N + remap = £225-265 - power 230bhp and 480nm?

    Standard car + K&N + remap + decat = £350-395 - Power wise??? Is the extra £120 for a de-cat worth it?

    The power should be variable from any remap, I know you can get to over 280-290bhp with the original turbo and intercooler on the 204bhp, but it is severely pushing it.
    With any diesel tuning, unless there is a hardware "block", ie. a component pushed up to the maximum, there should always be room for more power, but it is knowing when to stop that is important.

    K&n filter is a waste of time on these

    Your 184bhp 330d will go up to 375ftlbs and 230bhp which will be reliable
    This is on a dyno dynamics rolling road

    If you then put you car on another
    make of dyno to test it again you will see more some times 15-20bhp and 15-20ftlbs more



    The other mods will not improve the power much
