    Kia

    it isn't really worth chipping a NASP petrol, what i would suggest is a sports CAT manifold, induction kit, if your willing to pay serious amounts of money then look at getting upgraded cams and valves but the manifold and induction kit would be a start

    I own a Kia as some of you may know and think is it a great wee car, i have the car remapped so there is extra stress on the engine, i have done over 30k miles on it since i got the car, the 1st 15k were very hard miles for the car, went through 3 sets of tyres to put a bit of perspective on it...

    tuneable diesels for under a grand

    Try the CRTD's from Hyundai/Kia theres the TID's from Saab or you could try the DTI's from Vauxhall/Opel or the TDCi's from Ford (probably the least tunable of the four engine) you could probably pic up a CRDT for well under £1k might not be able to get a Saab or a ford with that price range...

    Golf TDi problems?

    I'm not entirely sure on how the whole back pressure thing works with diesels, but i do remember him telling me that Turbo diesel with no CAT's or bends in the exhaust to create some sort of back pressue is bad for the turbo

    Golf TDi problems?

    the cars wern't thrashed for 5-10k miles The Mechanic i go to to get my car tuned says it has something to do with the lack of back pressure in the exhaust which from what i understand isn't good for diesels

    Golf TDi problems?

    @ 944 If theres no CATs at all along the exhaust or the manifold, the turbo wont last long if its given dogs abuse all the time, i know a few people who fitted straight through exhausts to there TDI Vag's and all of them have had the turbos replaced after about 5-10k miles
