    Diesel exhaust systems

    Haha..sorry…I thought you was aiming it at me as down the thread I do discuss that I do emit black smoke under hard acceleration but as explained…my car has been extensively professionally mapped by Paul and is running at its optimum throughout the entire rev range…we are neither under or over...

    My car doesn’t have a DPF…and poorly mapped!?…I’ll pass on your comments on to Paul Murray at RS Tuning in Leeds…he does all my mapping on the rolling road…lol..

    Diesel exhaust systems

    I’ve got a custom made full stainless system with one silencer in the middle…it sounds standard when pottering about but under full throttle sounds awesome…lol..

    I do actually have a video my friend took from his Audi S3 as I destroyed him on our local bypass but I don’t think it would be wise to be uploading it on social media...lol...trust me...she’s quick... ;-)

    Not at dumb question at all...Yes...I get a puff of black smoke when I put my foot down and she black smokes under hard throttle at the top of the Rev range but no more than what you would expect from a mapped up diesel?...there is a saying round here...”where there’s smoke there’s poke”...or...

    Running like a dream ....got the jetting sorted on both the water/meth and nitrous...rebuilt the fuel pump and injectors...she wipes the smiles off all those young lads with mapped up AudiMW/VW...whilst putting a large one on my face...lol..

    Hi there...Mines an O7 and doesn’t have a DPF but the cat as been cut out...no issues with emissions whatsoever...you need a map sensor from a Ford Fiesta 1.6 TDI...thats what I’m using..read through this thread..with all the mods I’ve done I’m now getting over 300BHP with the same reliability...

    Yes...instead of it being vented into the intake it goes to the catch can...not sure if it’s added to the performance as such but it’s improved the breathabillity of the engine...

    The pipe that’s blanked off came off the back of the cylinder head and replaced with the blue pipe that goes to the catch can..

    I’m not very mechanical minded?..my friend does all the technical work..didn’t know there was a PVC valve on the 2.0d?..from what I can gather...we disconnected the breather pipe from the cylinder head and blanked it off then took a pipe from the cylinder head to the catch can..not sure if that...

    Purring like a kitten..lol...everything has been done right..no corners cut..the stock internals are good for 300+BHP as long as nothing is on its way out.. lol...the water/meth kit and the nitrous helps keep the intake charge very cool which is good for reliable power...I’m getting 250+BHP &...

    I’ve been enjoying the nitrous...even an 11lb bottle doesn’t last as long as you’d think..lol...it does get quite addictive..and I do mean for the cat,not me personally...I sound like a right “druggy” there!...:-)
