I haven't posted for a long time, but I've been happily motoring around in my 147 for last 2/3 years and loved every moment, but i always wanted a GT originally.
Recently my 147 was vandalised which involved someone kicking in the rear quarter panel, and I'm now at the stage to replace it and get a GT. It's not worth the money getting it repaired. Most places want a good £800 to £1000 to fix it, and the car isn't worth that.
Shame after the modifications I did to it.
So I'm looking at various 1.9 JTD's and I've been interested in the remaps people have been doing. This looks like something I want to do. My heart says get the v6, but the tax, insurance and the petrol cost would cripple my wallet. So 1.9 it is.
I've looked at various threads with lots of information but here are my basic questions...
1. Is it possible to get the 1.9JTD (None cloverleaf) to neer 200hp. If so, how much work is involved and rough costs.
2. If I do chip it and do all the work, i understand the clutch is a bit weak. Has anyone actually found a good replacement to handle the torque?
Anything else that you recommend looking for or modifications?
