    After spending hours on the net and not finding much info I thought Id post my Dyno chart.

    With a DPF still fitted 190bhp seems to be as safe as you can go.

    Removing the DPF will increase it to about 205-220 depending on who does it.

    I actually stumbled across a remaping company Home - Performance Torque Tuning Specialists that were 5 mins from my house so I did a lot of research to double check they knew what they were doing and was happy to let them loose on my car. Especially as they are mapping Touring cars that are to be appearing on SKY tv.

    I want to give it a few days of hard driving before I can confirm the results but from the little run I did today all is good. Its a very smooth power delivery so I'm happy that the clutch will last and I am astonished at how the engine loves to be reved. I can't remember if it was 4th or 5th gear I was in but flooring it from 2k RPM it just kept pulling and pulling up to 4.5k RPM. Once I get rid of my heavy right foot itch, Ill see what effcts it has on the MPG. With my 15-20 min spirited drive down a country lane my MPG didnt drop below 41.4mpg but we'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    I will be keeping a close on this the graph looks impressive , I am surprised you were not enticed by the Yorkshire tuning firm, normally they rope in the punters.

    I was going to but it was easier to get this company to do it, drop the car off and still have a weekend. Keeping the wife happy. As the company had won some awards and had great reviews from customers it made my choice easy.

    Is there a panel filter available for the Dtec? If not I may be looking into changing it.:Wink:

    I would stick to stock filter as they work if I recall correctly the aftermarket one had quality issues, some broke and some just let grit in without filtering. Another genius marketing ploy to shift dodgy filters.Even if they made a I-DTEC panel filter the gain will be negligible on a FI car, that will be moding for the sake of moding.

    If you want more omph you want larger intercooler or get the existing one reworked to increase cooling surface.

    But you should not lose sight of going crazy with moding without understanding the other implications.

    I think I read about that. It was for the petrol cars. As far as Im aware no one does a panel filter for the I-DTEC and if they used my car to develop one I was told it shouldnt cost me anything. Like you say, I doubt Id get much BHP anyway but if it free its worth a shot.

    Just a quick up date to my MPG. After 5 days and 145miles I'm getting 48.5mpg and still the needle is past the full mark. It may come down a bit but it seems to have settled at that for the time being. I was getting 44mpg before so not too bad. I just wish I could get the 50-60mpg some other drivers are getting. Overall still happy :Grin:

    Yesterday I thought I'd try a 0-60 using Torque on my Android phone. I did have GPS on too to help with accuracy. Anyway, I had a crap start and still managed a decent time. I Know I can knock it down more but for the sake of my tyres and clutch I won't be doing it again. Has anyone else used Torque to see what thy can get?

    Good results don't won't want to sound as a kill joy but please do not post any figures in the future of top speeds or any drag races on here.
    It is not viewed in the best light and is against the rules.

    Good time, although mid range is where the diesel really does well.

    Ok Sorry I didn't realise:Aghast: I just thought Id see if the remap I had made a difference to the 9.6 time of the standard car. The next figures Ill be posting will be on MPG:Smile:

    I don't mind you guys posting dyno plots with xyz horsepower or speed as it not on public roads but readouts using devices on public roads to gain top end speed or quarter miles dashes etc . not allowed here.

    In fairness your reading all all within national speed limit but it remains which roads did you do it ? hence the the whole speeding thing is a big no -no.
