everything feels good.
certainly spools up much easier, which has had quite a dramatic effect on the drive.
mush more responsive, and useable torque feels very much like my previously very healthy 2.4JTD, comes in with a good rush as low as 2k, but holds on throughout the revs a lot better, making it notably quicker than my 2.4JTD which ran out of puff too soon.
a side benefit is the weight saving, its quite substantial really for the sum of parts it has replaced, it may even be noticeable in the handling and turn in department, but its a bit damp round here today so no barreling into islands for now!
its now easier to drive day to day i'd say, you can be lazier with it, but use the box and the revs and blimey, scalded cat around the tacho!
so i reckon it should be a tad more frugal too, so long as you're not spinning her up everywhere of course, as the useable torque for everyday driving, overtaking etc, begins lower down, so less throttle input required, at least thats the theory, i'm using it daily now to test as much as possible.
its ALL good, and with a bit of luck, i might get Intercooler Hard pipes completed on Friday to fully compliment it, that should stop the beggars splitting again!
