2.0 JTDm 170 remap/ remove DFP/EGR
I am finding my 159 2.0 JTDm 170 a bit slow of the mark, you really have to give it some revs, and when its cold it struggles to get going.
Also I have been in limp mode twice, once going very slow, the other going very fast (will get codes in the next few days).
Anyway I rang a tuning company to enquire about a remap, and if its worth getting the DPF removed, I was told that the 2.0 engines suffer just as bad as the 1.9's.. Is this true ? I know the EGR is not so bad but I am guessing the DPF is similar??
Anyway all in with my previous customer discount I was quoted £500.
My car has done 119k now (its a 2011), so is it worth getting the DPF & EGR removed or shall I just got with a remap?
