    We have both the 1.9td (75bhp) and 1.9tdi(90bhp).
    The Tdi is by far the superior model in terms of power and economy.
    But the TD has been tuned by myself to extract more power from the unit. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    The injection pump mixture has been turned up (more rich).
    and the air filter element replaced with a induction kit.
    Both cars were cruising at 40mph side by side then both were floored /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif
    The outcome both were neck and neck upto 1 ton then the TDI just slowly left the td /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif.
    This was down to the TDI's gearbox were the td was maxxed at 1.1ton. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jawdrop.gif

    Has anyone tuned up a normal turbo diesel.
    Difference in mileage and power.
    would like to hear your views.
