New boy with a 147 JTD

I ran a 156 Selespeed from new for 5 years. When, at 50,000 (mostly French autoroute) miles it tried to bankrupt me, I switched to a 147 JTD, with which I am very happy. However, it's the 115bhp version. Excuse my ignorance of previous threads, but I'm considering a re-chip (alledgedly adding 30bhp).
Does it work and which are best, please? What other effects? eg fuel consumption?

Welcome to AO Iain

A remap of your car will give a useful 40bhp more. Angel Tuning have a good rep around these 'ere parts

Re: New boy with a 147 JTD

Hi Iain.

Got a 147JTD myself, but it's the twin cam. Angel are doing mine next week, so afterwards, I'll post what I think of it.

Regarding the engine in yours, my Doblo has the same engine (though 100bhp) and was 'chipped' 3 years ago (60k miles) using the SKN programme (+30bhp). Very happy with that apart from the fact that the clutch cannot cope with the torque in 4th + 5th gears, when you change up. You can boot it in the rest quite happily though.
