Where would you guys go for a remap on a 1.9 diesel GT, & how much should it cost????
It cost me around £300-350, I've tried a few maps and stuck with the original from Angel Tuning, nit because it was the best one I've had on my car necessarily but because it was on their first and the extra Celtic got out of the car wasn't worth the price of another remap IMO, both are very good maps, smoke has never been an issue on my car, little puffs now and again but on the whole buggerall, the car has been great, remapped by nigel basically from day one and I've done 60k on it with only minor trouble, hole in boost pipe and a boost sensor in that time and thats probably not even related to the map.
I've done plenty of trackdays and club sprints in this time and suprisingly find myself near the top of the pack on competitive days in a bloody diesel
where the car has a serious power and weight disadvantage
the JTD really goes well for only 180bhp.
I've driven the Brera V6 a couple of times as I like the car, its very pretty but its an embarrassment, probably has similar performance to my JTD whilst drinking the go go juice and not driving half as well. The GT JTD is a good package, I keep looking to replace mine as I never wanted to be in a diesel really but each time I try something I look at what I have and think the cars I'm looking at don't offer up enough extra performance for the cost and whatwith rising fuel prices doing 10miles to a litre really doesn't hurt even when paying 1.10 for BP ultimate
so here I am still in my GT, its a bonus that its a great place to be
