More (diesel ) Power Anyone?

Recommended Posts

I'll gladly supply the car if someone will sponsor me for the chip :lol:

Perhaps we could get 30 or so diesel owners to club together? :D

Looks good, 196bhp (compared to 177), 324lb's of max torque (compared to 295)....and improved low range torque/turbo....sounds perfect...

I'd like to see some graphs etc first...and need to wait for my warranty to run out!!

Yes.. but that's a LONG wait.... well in my case it will be.

Oh well... bound to be a lot cheaper in 3 years :unsure:

Why not wait for the original TTE chip? it's bound to come by early fall, will keep your warranty with no changes and it has better specs (at least in paper):

220HP

470Nm

It should cost about 1150€

The german forum is organizing a group-buy, I'm looking into it, but as some othere, I'd prefer to see a graph first and hear some feedback. The car is very spikey as it is (narrow powerband) so I dont want it even more spikey, I want more power on the lower rev-range

HI,

I was in contact with Florian at TTE a few weeks back who said the tuning option undfortunately won't be available until early 2007 ... needless to say, it is in my diary to pester them then! :blush:

Oh well, I'd rather have then take their time and make it work as expected on the first go, than going shortly after the installation for a firmware update or something else... Some things are not to be hurried!
