JTD Remap query

hello there,

got my heart set on a facelift JTDM 147 16v. However 120BHP is a little underpowered I reckon so what kind of figures would I be looking at if I got it remapped?????? Also, is it true that fuel consumption figures will benefit from remapping?????

One final question, the JTD engine itself? how does it sound? is it rattly etc.? I know this is expected of 4 cylinder diesels. My friend has a BMW 330 diesel and the engine sound is silky smooth, u couldnt tell it was a diesel.


Cheers.

Holy thread bump !!!

I thought the 16v had 140bhp stock? And it was the 8v which was much lower

For the 16v I'd expect about an extra 40bhp, I'd also get the egr disabled by the remapper.

Mpg is generally increased by a good remap (obviously depending upon how you drive) and engine life should not be affected
