It's the 136. I'm looking at the full works. 'mad map' with CDA.
Though you have me worried now. I was of the impression the map was as much as the car could handle 'without breaking' .
Rather than without breaking provided you don't put the power down too quickly...
Not sure I have the abilty to do a preflight check each time I'm about to hit the gas...
Perhaps I should drop down a level from the mad map ?
Cant' afford a big bill at the end of all this. Could just about handle a new clutch...
I had the 175bhp map previously on my 136, without CDA. When I asked for more, I got CDA, and Nige said I could have either a 190 map or 200 'mad map'. Said 190 wouldn't affect fuel economy, 200 would, and it has a bit, but its still very good for the power and weight of the car, can still get 40mpg if I go steady. I knew I needed a clutch anyway, but the car is still on original flywheel at 117K, and this is its third clutch, the first uprated one its had. Hoping to get to 170k with it, if I keep the car that long.
I think I'm going to stick with Angel on this. Been lloking on the forums for quite a while and Nigel clearly comes highly recommended...
Will discuss this with him. Though I do recall the conversation going along the lines of as much as you can safely allow...
Are you just being careful or is this what Angel suggested etc ???
Erm, Nige might have said something I can't remember, someone definitely said something about using the gears more. Anyway its not good to load the engine at low revs in a high gear, crap for your transmission as torque peaks around 2,000. Acceleration is no good either, you should be in a lower gear and use the rev range. That is why we have JTDs and not VW Pump-Duse engines!
As Nige had a 2.4 JTD 10v himself, he has LOADS of different maps that he can put on without having to pay for a custom one being done. Definitely recommend them, although I have emailed Graham from Celtic Tuning a few times and he certainly knows his stuff about JTD engines, they have done front mounted intercoolers, first company I know of to do one on an Alfa although I don't think they do it commercially.
Also, there is a guy on here now with a crazy JTD, well over 300bhp IIRC, username is Kevinw, but he has done loads of mods other than just mapping and induction.
did everyone who replaced their clutch replace the flywheel on the jtd?? i spoke to the dealer and a couple of specialists and they all insist that the flywheel does NOT require replacing unless its damaged, which is bloody good news for my skint ass
just got my 'cg' clutch through today, looks like a valeo unit with stronger springs?
going to go for the milder angel remap once i have brakes
Yes, my uprated clutch was a valeo unit with stronger springs, I would have liked a kevlar presure plate to be honest, was quite suprised that it was no different to a standard pressure plate.
As far as I know, after the clutch the next weaklink in the JTD is the gearbox.
