The modern diesel engine has come a long way since the old smelly noisy almost agricultural units of years gone by. With the advent of high compression engines, turbo chargers and direct fuel injection at phenomenal pressures we have a range of diesel engines that out perform thier petrol counterparts and return better fuel economy.

The big plus is that with a simple remap you are able to dramatically increase the performance and also generally get better fuel economy.

We look at all aspects of diesel engine tuning and suggest that you join our forum for more information about the world of high performance diesels.

Stage 1,2,3 remaps and mods

We wish people would stop using stage to describe a tuning option or plan but while they do we’ll define here what we mean and expect when we talk about the term.

Low ratio sport gearbox setup and selection.

Gearbox – Lower ratios give better acceleration times and lower fuel economy. Six or seven speed boxes are better matched to modern engines.

Most street applications are closer 1st and 2nd gear ratios for that off the line 0-60 boost or for the fast exec a lower 2nd and 3rd ratio give improved overtaking flexibility and 30 – 70 mph acceleration with a high 4th and 5th gear to give motorway fuel economy.
