You don’t normally buy a deseisel for its performance upgrades. If it has an odd port I’d be interested in seeing if I could map it but I don’t see any maps in the list atm only the 25,45,75.

I have had very good results tuning my 1998 2.2dt Espace by simply replacing the airbox with a quality cone filter, fitting a single box straight through stainless steel exhaust & blocking off the EGR valve. Admittedly the vehicle wasn't fitted with a cat from the factory. The emissions are fine for M.o.T.

The turbo lag has reduced as the turbo now spins freely and sounds great, The Mrs is a bit of a Trafficlight Grand Prix-er, she has left many a boy racer for dead, much to our amusement. The look on their faces as a People Carrier blows them away is hilarious.

If you listen to some of the Land Rover boys they reckon to turn up the diesel pump for more power. I would imagine on a modern diesel this would need to be done by re-mapping.

A wise old engineer once told me. . . .the quicker you get the gasses in & out, the quicker the engine turns, the quicker you go !
